    I am just going to be wondering what people/teens who use social media frequently want in a social media site. I have some ideas for a social media site, but I want an opinion of other social media users.

    The hard part about launching a social media site today is that nobody will join it if nobody is using it. Who's going to join some random no name social media site if none of their friends are on it?

    The reason Snapchat was able to be successful is that they figured out a way to market their social media site effectively and at a rapid rate.

    I have ways to get a good amount of members on the site/potential app, I just want to make it different from other social media sites, but in a way where people like it and will use it.

    This is true. I think the huge trick is to create a site that has something unique about it. The Snapchat someone mentioned is a great example.

    Yes, and I just want a little feedback from social media users of what they want to see in a social media site/app that will be different from other websites/apps. I have certain ideas that I plan to include, but I just want to know what other avid social media users think.

    You should create an social network where listen to this... You take a picture and instantaneously you can upload that picture on the line and your friends would be able to see that picture and post their own pictures. Suddenly you've got everyone and their mom posting pictures on the line... It's a brilliant idea...

    Sorry for the double post but I have a brand new idea... It's called meetyamama.com. Listen to this... It's somewhere where people who where abandoned at birth can go and upload their picture and all their info and then they click a button called labeled "Find my Mama!" It would then use facial recognition and important details and search the World Wide Web to find that persons mother. If nasa lets you, you can even use intel from a satalitte to find that persons location. It's a million dollar idea too bad it'll never be done

    No fake IDs. In social media sites there should be some mechanism which automatically finds out if someone has created a fake ID and delete it immediately.

    i also agree because mostly on social media sites users are trying to deceive others with fake ID's

    Ok, I will work on a way to reduce or completely eliminate fake IDs, but does anyone else have any more ideas for a social media site. I am finalizing most of the details this weekend.

    Just wondering, how did your site go.
    Is it finished or still in the making.

    Sounds good.
    Do you know how long it will take before it is live.

    Yeah, but Facebook is becoming something to the point where I don't even know why I use it anymore. It tracks like everything you look at, click, person you talk to, etc. And they are also money crazy, and those things are not things I would put in a social media site.

    I guess that all the necessary features for social networks are already implemented. Maybe some specific features are still not done, but they are for the limited circle of people.
