Yay! 1 Million Views on Google Maps

Michael ·
This is kinda cool, so I thought I would share. I've shared some brutally honest and also glowing reviews on Google Maps over the last few years, and I've finally hit 1,000,000 views. Two of the highest ratings were a picture of a pizza, and puppies locked in a small cage in a pet store. The power of opinion can be a powerful thing. Here's the pizza that got 80,000 views, lol

Narrative will go beyond content

cara ·
We start with content, we move into other areas such as ecommerce, for example. Anything that involves online social interactions can fit into Narrative. I can go in depth with the list of ideas that I have, however that would not be fair, so one "basic" idea is enough. Allowing users and even companies to host their own online stores and share reviews (example), would be a great addition to the platform and would give the NRVE token a new use-case.

I'm slowly switching over from using Google Chrome to using Epic Browser , and Epic has the ability to show how many companies track your movements in your other browsers. Yes, I cleared my history. :)

Downloaded and installed. Liking it so far. Feels just like Chrome, as you said... except with some design aspects feeling a little crude/retro: which is kind of fun.

I wonder if there could be any natural synergies between Epic and Narrative, to form a messaging partnership? The theme of controlling one's data is common to both, and they are both emergent? They could help each other fuel each other's adoption? The words 'epic' and 'narrative' have a natural affinity for each other (an epic being a type of narrative), which would help in communications. @Melanie Mathos ?
