For the next couple of weeks, we’re going to do something a bit different. I have been commissioned to seek feedback from my readers regarding a new social network that is in the planning stages.
This social network will offer Facebook-type features and will be geared for the Christian community.
The primary user of this network will likely be a small church (including pastors, staff, and lay leaders). The secondary user will be individuals (who could have a profile that somewhat resembles a Facebook personal profile).
Understanding that millions of people are frustrated with Facebook, the developers of this new network plan to build an interface that is user-friendly, highly functional, somewhat customizable, and visually appealing.
That’s where you come in. From now through May 1, I’m going to ask you a series of questions that will help the development team determine what features and functionality potential users of this network would love — and not love.
If you’d like to offer your input in the Comments area, that would be great. Or you can email me privately: email@example.com.
Here’s our first discussion topic:
- What specific things most frustrate you about your personal Facebook Timeline (profile)?
- What do you wish Facebook would change to make using your personal profile easier?
Please respond in the comments or email me directly, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much for your help!
