Narrative @ Work: UI Preview, Network Rewards Exceeds 1 Million NRVE

We've got a juicy update for you this month, including a preview of the new UI. Head on over to the blog to get the scoop!
Question

Is any "Preview" available when creating a post?

maJes_tic_Narrator ·
Hi all I had started to create my first post on Narrative, but realized that there is no "PREVIEW" of how the post will appear. The only thing I could see is the plain text and the HTML. This seems to be a bit of a hindrance to creating quality posts. I have a blog on Steemit, and one of its best features is the "Preview, " where I can read, preview, proofread, edit, and check to make sure everything is perfect before I click post. Is there anything I'm missing here? Is there a way to...

Sharing a post from a niche I own wants to put the blurb of a different niche in the FB preview!

Malkazoid ·
Hello! I just tried to share a great post from the Spirituality niche. I own the niche and wanted attract folks to both the post, and the niche. But the FB preview only allows as a blurb, the description of the first niche the person tagged the content to, which it turns out was not mine. This seems like a shortcoming because niche owners are wanting to promote their niches more than the niches of other people - of course. Ideally one would be able to flick between up to three options for...

What does the 1 million NRVE rewards pool mean exactly? How much of that is going to users suggesting, voting and purchasing Niche's before the actual platform has launched?

@cara the rewards won't start being distributed until after the Beta version is released. Right now, they're just accumulating! Once distribution begins, the pie will look like this....

So there is no incentive to be suggesting and voting for niche's? I'm stopping then.

The incentive is that your actions count toward your ultimate "activity rewards" slice of the pie, which everyone is entitled to, if they're participating. And voting also counts toward the new "electorate" pie slice as well.

Hi Cara - adding on to what Rosemary said, everything done during alpha will also be factored into your reputation score once we support it. During this pre-beta period, we also have two other incentive programs running: Community Rewards Referral Rewards Thanks for being an amazing member of the community, and we hope you decide to keep voting!

The problem is that there is no secret that Narrative is seeing a slow adoption rate during this phase of voting for Niches. It's not surprising considering the current incentives available. People are not able to view their reputation so they have no idea what is going on, the feeling of being incentivized is almost non-existent. I have no idea if it's even worth it to invest any time at all right now. I imagine that being an active quality-content creator as well as completing the KYC will...

I have noticed that it defaults to alphabetical, as well. I think this is a problem. A person should be able to lead with the most appropriate niche, and not have it be listed alphabetical. And yes this sharing thing would be a problem for me too.

Can you show me what you're looking at? Because when I share something from Narrative to my Facebook page I see no reference to niches at all. This is the sharing screen: And then the post as soon on my FB page after posting it. No Niches. And for posts that have no image, just text only, we use the default Narrative image, but still no Niche reference. Can you help me out and show me what you're seeing?

Hey! Thanks for taking a look at this. I will see if I can reproduce this and take a screen grab. I was sharing a beautiful post to the Spirituality niche. Lets see if it is still exhibiting the same behavior if I try to share it again...

We've found it. It seems to be that if you use a subtitle, then Facebook picks that up and uses it as a description. If not, then Facebook uses whatever arcane ruleset that their scraper has been programmed with. There are improvements that we can make to help with that and we will look into adding them. There will still be cases where there just is no description that has been provided by the author for us to in turn provide to Facebook. In those cases they will use what they do by whatever...

Understood. Is there a way to inject the description of the sharer's niche that the content was tagged to, in the metadata that gets presented to Facebook during the sharing process, in such a way that FB views it as something to include in share, if there is no subtitle? I'm ignorant as to how this works! In any event, good luck!

In fact, I think I might have the solution... I think FB grabbed the description for the Meaningful Life niche because that niche is listed first on the page. So the fix would simply be to serve the page to FB with the niches listed with the sharer's niche first?

@Malkazoid , that's not realistic, unfortunately. Facebook has its own crawler that fetches the metadata for a page. The metadata will be the same for everyone, so the only way to do this kind of thing would be to change the URL of the post somehow. I don't really see that happening. I think this will all become moot once we add a fallback mechanism for posts that don't have a subtitle; we will probably use an extract of the post in that case instead.

Malkazoid ·
Understood @Brian Lenz - and yes, with a fallback plan, it does become moot! I wonder if it makes sense to let the content creator define a certain phrase with a character limit, that would represent the share on other social media sites? I know I would take the time to do that. It is hugely influential as to whether people click the link to get to the post, and thus to Narrative. And the content creator would almost always do a better job of defining the appealing phrase than extract...

@Malkazoid , they already do: the subtitle. If you put in a subtitle for your post, it gets used in social share descriptions The only issue with the Canopy post you mentioned is that it is lacking a subtitle.

When you create a post you should see it as it appears. You can also make use of the "save and exit" button, on the top right. You can save anything you write as a draft and them come back to it, read it, and edit it for typos and grammar, and then publish when you're satisfied with it. You don't have to immediately post the content live.

Thanks, David. I'll give it another look, and I'm sure I'll get the hang of it soon enough. Cheers!
