App solutions 101 – Social Networking App Development
Humans are, by figures, social creatures
- The number of people around the world using the Internet has grown to 4.54 billion, showing an increase of 7% (equals to 298 million new users) compared to a year ago.
- Worldwide, there are 3.8 billion social media users in January 2020, with this number increasing by more than 9% (accounts for 321 million new users) year-on-year.
- Across mobile devices and computers, GlobalWebIndex reports that we now spend an average of 2 hours and 24 minutes/person/day using social platforms, up by 2 minutes per day since this time last year.
The world continues being the playground for social apps – but it is elevating
The ever-rising number of Internet users and time spent on online social activities are a rock-solid evidence that social apps have yet to fall from being the normality in everyday’s life. However, it won’t be the same way it was – instead, it would challenge the old norms and innovates what have been familiar to a next level:
- Niche social platforms: In recent years, we witness the explosion of several other social apps, which all have one thing in common: they focus on only one strategic type of content or audience For example, Instagram as a photo-pitstop for photography lovers, Tik Tok having an eye on short videos, or Twitch being a live streaming platform for gamers. Thanks to the huge success of such predecessors, we can expect the upsurge of more “unicorns” in this edge and be optimistic about future disruptions of these platforms.
- Personalization: A recent research shows that nearly 74% of online users are frustrated with applications when content appears to have nothing to do with their interests, and just 20% of people are satisfied with the personalization they see now. Therefore, the doctrine of delivering the right content, to the right person, at the right place and in the right time is sure to be the top concern for improvement for a few more years.
- Integration of frontier technologies: Frontier technology such as AI, AR, Blockchain, IoT or chatbots found new life in social apps. Through filters, effects and many other applications, these types of technology begin fumbling toward becoming a mainstream reality as users will experiment with and find ways to use these features. As Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder, and CEO of Facebook predicted, social media is going to include much more of these high-level technologies in the coming few years, and that such applications will simplify people’s approach towards life and the world.
Work with a vendor that knows the anatomy of social platforms inside and out
- Versatile: Social apps inherit the flexibility and fast-changing nature of a real-world society. Therefore, a good vendor shall be one who is able to adapt and ride ahead of the wave.
- Cross-platforms: Social apps are designed to connect people, and social accounts are what represent us as a member of the society. It is the depiction of a person’s virtual identity, therefore, it shall also be used as a verification tool for other activities: online shopping, online payment, etc.
- Comprehensive: As an idea dedicated to every person regardless of their status, social apps must promise comprehension across all users. The app should be user-friendly, coherent and informative at some certain degrees.
- Confidential: Vendors shall enable a secure firewall to all users personal information. It shall not be a patchy solution, but rather a full-stack solution allowing features to be easily built in for app level security, application management and device facilitation.
