Re: Niche owner influence/custom niche organisation

Mark Horler ·
So, having read this thread, and the original one linked to... Denying niche owners any say in content, is not only slightly bonkers, but more importantly, it's impossible and pointless. Several posts across the threads have already made it abundantly clear that, if they are denied any control via the narrative platform itself, it is perfectly possible for them to work around that. You could conceivably end up with owners inviting moderators to join facebook groups (set to secret), in order...

Niche owner influence/custom niche organisation

Malkazoid ·
Hello all, In this thread: https://community.narrative.or...39#13559569009919839 It became apparent, through some communication from @Ted, that the @Narrative Network Team's goal is to remove owners from any influence on the content of their niches. They will certainly correct me if I mischaracterise this in any way, but from what I have gathered, niche owners will only be promoters of their niches. They will have no editorial control whatsoever, and will have zero...

I suspect your reaction will be common. Niches have been solidly pitched to entrepreneurs. The phrase Content Entrepreneur was even coined in the process. Realising that one's sole real activity is to promote won't match up with: a) how niches have been described b) what entrepreneurs expect from a business endeavor c) what is best for the niche (if only engaged to promote, an owner's overall satisfaction levels with the time spent on a niche will be much lower than if they are engaged as an...

As I've previously stated, I agree strongly with all of @Malkazoid 's points. Like @Mark Horler , I've also thought about picking up another niche, but am really hesitant too if Niche ownership becomes nothing more than promotion.

True, but there is not much that can be done about this unless you are a mind reader.

I am not feeling assured or comfortable with the hurdles involved with the lack of ROI suggested here as far as Niche ownership. If what I am understanding is correct, then anyone can come onboard Narrative as a content creator, have a larger profit for their efforts, and can have more authority to take action and control the direction of the niche they create content for. And they don't have to pay/invest anything to get in, while Niche owners have to go through the hassle of jumping...

Nice share. I was watching a magician show on Netflix recently, and he was able to have a drone deliver items to people based on Amazon's knowledge of them. Every package was exactly what they people were looking at buying, even though they hadn't told anyone. Predictive advertising based on your online profile increasingly resembles magic, but as we all know, Fakebook has leaked 87 MILLION people's intimate details, and it has lead many countries to change their whole approach to how...

It can be very useful - I'm hoping we'll find all that usefulness in Narrative, with time. Maybe adoption will take a good while, before we truly feel the ease of connection with others that FB offers, and perhaps we won't ever get quite as far in terms of universal adoption. But there is a unique excitement to being connected via Narrative to those people who want something better than Facebook. That's a very positive common ground to share, and the shift from Facebook towards decentralised...

Interesting article: Yes You Should Delete Facebook, Here's Why

Malkazoid ·
https://medium.com/s/story/yes-you-should-delete-facebook-heres-why-bc623a3b4625 This article has got be thinking more concretely about leaving Facebook behind for good. If everything progresses with Narrative as expected, I will delete my Facebook profile once Narrative has launched in other languages. I have too many contacts who speak other languages to do so beforehand. This is contingent on Narrative having a messaging app comparable to Messenger, whether it is their own app, or another...

Hi - with a bit of luck, Narrative in Russian will be a 'thing' one day. The @Narrative Network Team do plan to open up other languages in the future.

One thing Narrative definitely needs is a mobile app for iOS and Android. Preferably early after beta launch so that the app can move along with further development of the platform. I’d gladly replace my Facebook app with the Narrative app, as I rarely interact with social sites through other means.

Hello all, A couple of thoughts on where Narrative might find fertile ground to thrive in its first 6-12 months. We all know how Facebook took hold on college campuses. Whilst blindly copying methods that have worked for others is often doomed to fail, there might be some value to a specific area within colleges, for Narrative. I'm thinking of schools of journalism, political science, sociology, and creative writing. Schools of Journalism The attraction for journalist students is publishing...

Call for Comment - Why Narrative?

Melanie Mathos ·
Inspired by the community's great discussions around Google+ members looking for a new home , I'm penning a blogpost on G+ and some other platforms that are dealing with challenges retaining their members. I'm sharing the @Narrative Network Team's perspective of course, but would love to quote some community members on why they are leaving other platforms to come to Narrative. This first post will explore the following platforms: Google+, Facebook, Tumblr, and Steemit. Please share your...

I pretty much abandoned my Google+ profile years ago. Not because it was a bad service but I just wasn’t actively involved in any community there. I’m here for 2 reasons. The Narrative teams first blogging service, Hoo.do, died last year and of course Narrative was noted as an upcoming alternative in the email sent to the remaining Hoo.do members. So I’m hoping Narrative’s “Personal Journal” feature can be a good replacement for my blogging needs. As for the 2nd reason, I’m looking to...

Facebook: Facebook cannot be reformed from within or without. Its fundamental business model, while successful, runs contrary to contemporary communication needs. Transparency and data protection are no longer optional in a world where nano-targeting of consumers and voters is possible. That's why I'm ready to make the jump. Steemit: Steemit was great as a first step. But it developed cliques bent on exploiting the algorithms and squeezing everybody else out. This was the fault of the...

I stopped using Google+ years ago too because that's not where my people were. I post a lot on Facebook and Twitter, but it's often a lot of emotional labor (not to mention time and effort to write - and I am a professional writer and editor) that I'm putting into these platforms for free. Instead of repeating the same things over and over and OVER again to educate people who are ignorant of the harm they do to people in the various marginalized groups I belong to. I should get paid for what...

I was a fairly early adopter to Steemit and had high hopes (Who doesn't want to get paid for producing content?!). Unfortunately, the UX was seriously lacking and the 'gaming' of the system made it unenjoyable. I just wanted to share and experience great content and community, not spend my time figuring out which bots to invest in.

New post up on the blog exploring how Narrative is different from Google+ and Facebook. (Let me count the ways...) Next up are Steemit and Tumblr. Maybe Wordpress... What else would you like to see?

Suggestion

Consider Libra integration to Narrative

Malkazoid ·
You can't beat Facebook's Libra, but you can join it. If it becomes the dominant force in electronic payments that it is setting out to be, it might actually hold benefits for Narrative to allow people to transfer Libra to their Narrative accounts, where it is then converted into NRVE and usable on the platform. Likewise, it might be useful to allow them to withdraw their NRVE in Libra. This could represent a nice shortcut to NRVE being directly usable in the real world, rather than having...

Good suggestion! Libra integration with NRVE might be a huge boost to Narrative's worldwide acceptance. And that's what we all are aiming for to be known as "World's Journal".
