What Social Network Do You Want to Create?
The first thing you need to do before creating your social media app is considered what type of platform you want to develop. These include:
Social Network apps
Like Facebook and LinkedIn, social media can connect users and help you interact with other individuals online.
Media sharing apps
Many media sharing apps like Instagram and Snapchat let you share various media files (videos, photos, and gifs), connecting with friends and other users in the process.
Consumer review apps
If you are inspired by the likes of Trustpilot and Yelp, you may consider creating a consumer review app where users can review products and services, interacting with businesses and other customers as well.
Community and discussion forum apps
Perhaps you want to create a community discussion-based app like Reddit or Quora, where users ask questions and participate in online conversations.
One of the biggest bookmarking and content curation networks is Pinterest. If you want to create an app where users can share and discover new online content, you may want to check out the likes of Mix, Steemit, and Flipboard for ideas.
If you want to provide a space for writers to share their thoughts, blogs, and musings, consider creating a blogging app akin to Tumbler and Medium.
Consider Your Desired Features
Once you consider the type of app you wish to create, you should then consider the features required to bring your vision to life. These could include:
No social media app is complete without a user profile. People need to log in, log out and have a home base to connect to other people.
Every social media app depends on post creation. As such, you should give users the power to generate their own content.
Like, share, and comment
Users also want to be able to react, share, and comment on other people’s posts. So let them engage with like, share, and comment features.
Notifications are one of the key features related to user engagement. An in-app notification lets users know who is interacting with their posts and informs them of posts from other people.
No app is complete with an advanced search function. Let users navigate your app with a convenient search bar.
You’ll also need a chat feature. After all, the clue is in the name – social media app; you want your users to be sociable on your app.
