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

Google + importer

M ·
Hello all, Happy New Year, again, for any folks I missed previously! So, I've been popping in to some of the cooler G+ communities and letting them know about Narrative as an option for them, once G+ bites the dust. Hard to tell the exact day G+ will go to the great social network clearing house in the sky, but it will probably be in March, which is when our Beta launches. I'm encouraging G+ folks to join the Narrative alpha and explore, and I'm telling them that @Narrative Network Team...

Waiting list round 21, 100,000 signups unlock threshold?

Malkazoid ·
Hello Just noticed that after rolling over into round 21, the unlock threshold has changed from 500, to a whopping 100,000? Was this something that was programmed a long time ago, and not looked at again? Or do we really want to stop admitting new people to the alpha now? That's the effect of this super high threshold: there will be no new alpha users until Beta Launch unless the threshold is lowered. The timing is unfortunate: we're just getting into gear to encourage G+ users to jump into...

Building a sustainable business model

Malkazoid ·
Hi @Rosemary, I enjoyed your blog post a lot: https://blog.narrative.network...s-model-44cb93cf188d I've posted it on the G+ community I set up to help alert G+ users to Narrative as an option to migrate to when G+ shuts down in a few months. https://plus.google.com/u/0/co...18312125325383497859 Can I make one suggestion? Many will have the expectation of environmental sustainability, from the title of the article, but also strongly from the image you chose. It is a bit...

Feedback on niches from Google+ land

Malkazoid ·
Hi all, So it has been eye-opening already, this little foray into Google+ land. I've gleaned so far that to some folks, there's resistance to the notion of having to pay for niches, which is compounded by the seemingly high NRVE prices of niches, and confused further by the fact that those prices fluctuate alot from auction to auction. People are coming away underwhelmed from their visit to the alpha, and there are multiple layers to the problem. Paying for niches I too was initially turned...

Hi @Malkazoid - thanks for digging in on this subject. Narrative isn't really a "blockchain project" anyway. We use blockchain only for the cryptocurrency- the currency of the network. The rest though is not blockchain and does not require proof of work or any other type of blockchain "proof". We're of course following many of the principles of blockchain regardless of the underlying technology. Specifically, the goal is to be as transparent as possible and to give all members autonomy-...

Thanks @Ted . So any means you folks can think up to make some of your points more readily apparent to fresh alpha users could help. Regarding the cost of niches, and publications - that's only relevant to community and group owners on other platforms - but they are very important to us because they are influencers. When a community from those platforms chooses Narrative, they are going to bring with them hundreds, thousands, and sometimes hundreds of thousands of their members. So please do...

Re: Feedback on niches from Google+ land

Spot on @Erik Blair . We're not any closer to answers to many of those questions, than when the first niches were bought right at the beginning of the Alpha. I think our resource documents are due for a refresh. Some of them have outdated stats being reported (for instance our how-to-guide for buying crypto dates from July and mentions 1000 users in the Alpha - we're now close to 6000). But mostly, they should be refreshed to provide as much clarity on some of these questions, as possible. I...

Re: Feedback on niches from Google+ land

The hurdles I see, and perhaps this is another topic entirely, is not the $75 entry fee per niche, it's the unknown effort avenues and unknown ROIs that are, well, unexplained in layman terms. 1. The $75 entry fee per niche is fine so long as the niche owners are not tasked with ever-increasing responsibilities for little to no ROI or even any model of future ROI. Paying for niches using Crypto is also problematic (riddled with hassles). But because of the mysterious 'next phases' during the...

That's smart, and I think it is all we can expect our friends on Google+ to do. Join the Alpha, take a small stake with perhaps one niche, build their reputation a bit, and see how things pan out. I think the publishing aspect is going to be Narrative's own implementation, but I would be very surprised if the style deviates very much from Medium's. But that's just me hypothesizing.

Once I know more about what the publishing platform will look like (praying Narrative has partnered with Medium), I may consider doing all three, Niche Owner, Niche Moderator, and Niche Content Creator--to diversify and expand my Narrative portfolio. But at this point, I have established my virtual foot in the door and await further info before I march forward into prosperity

Nice - the latest round had a good rate of sign ups then... Easy to take the stats page for granted now that it has been with us all of one month! The tech era has spoiled us rotten. But when I remember to, I really appreciate it being there!

Ongoing patronage

Malkazoid ·
Another helpful suggestion from a certain Edward Morbius on Google+ (he moderates on the Google+ Mass Migration forum): ongoing patronage. I agree with him - this is something I think the @Narrative Network Team might want to take a close look at. I know we have plans slated for tip jar functionality already. But if we take it a step further, and allow people to pledge regular support to their favourite content creators, we'd be really taking it to another level, and replicating part of...

Good, right? As well as being supportive of creators, it also boosts the demand for NRVE.

Google+ is going away soon.

Heidi Hecht ·
I was just adding my social media accounts and thought I should mention that Google plans to end its Google+ platform. So basically, it's not really worth connecting the account.

I agree but Google integration is still a good idea even without Google+. To be honest, I'm not sure why it used Google+ and not a "Log in with Google" feature in the first place.
