Thinking On The Consumer Paradox

Bryan ·
Narrative's vision is to build a/the new content economy . What does this mean? On one level, thinking about this involves some really cool sci-fi futuristic world-building. One thinks of Ready Player One by Earnest Cline, or just about any of William Gibson's books. Or, THIS incredible concept film portraying hyper-reality/AR by Keiichi Matsuda. The future link between buyers and advertisers has been imagined many ways, spanning from the dark and dystopian to the bright and hopeful. The...

I like your article Bryan and yes all advertsing would love to get a better RoE and if they could figure the holly grail and tap into the mind of the customer and provide a better service it would make sense for them too (why waste money and anoy customers or anyone) but we are not in that future you describe we just have a phone and a phone book with a product! its a problem and if you can think of a better solution go for it ! the beach with your millions awaits you! .. : ) thanks bro!

Another thing I think companies will be catching on to: social networks provide the opportunity to tailor their products much more rapidly to the pulse of what's being discussed and generating excitement. If I'm a hotel that is off the beaten path, and trend-setting contributors to social media are starting to talk more about where's a good place to spend a different kind of spring break, could the platform (in this case Narrative) help them absorb this insight, and target those pages, and...

I wonder what the details of how advertising will be rolled out are. I recall from the WP that advertisers will be able to target niches, but will they be able to target users, based on metrics drawn up algorithmically from user activity? I'd imagine the raw data would remain unexposed to advertisers, to maintain privacy, but the algorithms could determine that someone like Bryan is a match for receiving advertising about special rates to fly to that city he flies to so frequently...

I love Narrative its my econmunitie

Harj ·
In the future I think you will be part of a group where you will get your main support and in a sense be your people! And those that are part of Narrative now will be the core of the community. In the future you will always will be supported by Narrative and effect the changes of Narrative generation after generation. Im sure we will see more communities like Narrative and Steemit etc... its always the ones on the edge of the old who feel left out and become the centres of the new econmunities,

A long list of Features that we would love to see in the future.

Now that we can type our content into the platform, we can get a bit more of a peek into the elegant look of the site, but also start to see the User experience design. This thread is not a complaint thread, but rather a constructive place to put your ideas in one area, of features you would like to see once the team rolls out the beta, and the designers have time for fine tuning I will start. I would love to see a built in photo editor, at the very least the ability to do final cropping...

Oh, now I'm trying to remember the THING that was missing when I was working on some drafts last week... and I can't remember it. This is may or may not be it, but one thing that's really needed is when choosing three niches for our content, we need search to look at niche names and descriptions. I've had to open two separate tabs when drafting content so that I can use the search bar to look for appropriate niches because some niches do not have intuitive names and the relevant information...

This is awesome, and helpful (especially since some of the suggestions get buried inside long, intense discussions and are hard to surface). Another way to make formal feature suggestions is to use the actual "suggestion" feature in this community. If you do that, then it can actually be "voted up" by other community members and it may help surface ones that are popular. To make a formal "suggestion," click the big green POST button. Then choose "support topic." On that page, for topic type,...

How about a niche suggestion tool? Just look at the content I wrote in the box and tell me which niches fit. Also, why only three niches? One of my frustrations with Steemit is I can only have five tags for a post. Why? If my content matches fifteen different content categories, why can't I tag it for all fifteen categories? I tend to write long posts so five tags doesn't cut it. On Narrative, a post may only fit into one niche. Fine. But what if it fits into six or seven? What harm would it...

That makes sense. I wonder if the end user who is not a niche owner or moderator will understand that. That's the kind of thing that needs to be communicated at the user level. Knowing that, as a user, I can choose the owners and moderators I want to reward.

@Garden Gnome Publications I think that the three niche limit might have something to do with rewards, not necessarily for the content creator, but for the moderators and niche owners. At least, that's the most likely explanation my brain could conjure. Publishing content in too many niches would dilute the rewards for each niche the same content appears in. If it was just about tagging, I would agree that there would be no good reason to limit how tags to just three. But because of the...

I think it could be argued that as a user experience, having too many tags means the same content can just end up getting plastered everywhere, and the platform could look quite repetitive. Especially in the early days.

Yeah, then you run the risk of creating user silos where early adopters support other early adopters and leave the rest behind. We certainly wouldn't want to create an aristocratic echo chamber. I don't think it would serve the platform well. @Emily Barnett , that's a good point. I think it could end up looking like a content farm, especially early on, if we're not careful.

Yeah, the thought literally had never occurred to me until you asked the question, and then I realized what a responsibility it is as a content creator - and as an owner and moderator - to build relationships to foster mutual success. Those of us here in the alpha who actively post here in the community forums (or at least commenting on suggested niches) have a bit of a head start on the whole thing. If I was torn between several niches for my third niche for any given piece of content, I...

@Garden Gnome Publications It's human nature. But I don't think the risk of an echo chamber is really that high. We all have a fixed limit on the number of niches we can own, and most of the time, we're probably not going to have the luxury of "knowing" the relevant niche owners, even one out of three.

With regard to photos, I'd like to be able to right and justify them. Also, the ability to include tables would be nice. And a place to include a footer so that all personal journal entries can have the same footer material without having to copy/paste it every time. In fact, being able to store multiple footers (one for each different type of post, for instance) would be nice.

I'm not sure if this has been addressed already, but if it the system doesn't, I'd love to see a Narrative Original Content checking tool. I'm sure a lot of people might re-upload content from their own blogs, and while I don't have an issue with it (as long as it's still relevant) I'd also been concerned if people are uploading content from other people's blogs or online articles and claiming that content as their own to earn NRVE. I imagine some moderators will do plagiarism checks, but...

This is a great suggestion. Some niche owners may not want duplicate content even if the content creator owns that content. This would give them the ability to check it quickly and reject content that doesn't meet Niche guidelines.

Having used Copyscape in my work, it's untenable to expect owners and/or moderators to run every piece of content through Copyscape - which won't help with visual content that requires a different online tool. Some people already own 5 niches - and may soon own 10 - and have applied to be moderators on even more different niches. Not to mention that many of us intend to be content creators as well, and have actual day jobs too. Copyscape also isn't perfect, especially if you're writing an...

Agreed. If someone sends a DMCA notice for stolen content, Narrative will act on it in whatever manner they've determined, which likely won't involve the niche owners or moderators. It is not within the scope of owners or moderators to run plagiarism checks.

How should a normal niche owner be able to check if the content creator created the content himself or used someone else's? It's simply impossible to do within an acceptable amount of time. In my opinion every content creator must be held responsible for every upload, there is no other realistic option.

I agree there need to be safeguards for blatant plagiarism but pictures have a lot of contingencies such as art curation. I've seen the power of much more popular pages crediting and re-posting another persons art that resulted in real world sales and commissions for that artist. I for instance, own a high end fashion niche. Unless I'm flying to Fashion Week or get invited to every personal showing there's no way to take only original pictures. In fact, I've had designers thrilled I posted...

I agree with the sentiments above about needing a copyright check for content / images. It should definitely be high in the priority list since it seems like a ripe opportunity for abuse since people can easily earn rewards off of other peoples content. Along with that, if someone is found to have plagiarized, their reputation should take a serious hit to discourage it from happening again.

Yes, that's a good idea. This would also go a long way to recruiting academics. Being able to cite a source with a mouse click and choose the style (Chicago, MLA, APA, AP, etc.) would be an incredible add-on.

Some of us will need to stock pile posts, especially niche owners, therefore it would be great on the draft page if we could have a few category separators in order to have some file management systems. For instance I may start drafts when a thought strikes me, like a title and a sentence or two, but need to finish it at a later date...it would be nice to stick that into my Equality niche folder in drafts along with the others, to keep them more organized. Like wise my Vintage Style, and the...

Change publication date

Slaz ·
Would it be feasible to have a feature to change the publication date to either a future, or a past date? For a future date, a drafted post could be auto-published when the specified date is reached. And a past date could be handy when (manually) bringing over a post that was originally published on another platform, perhaps with an “original publishing date” and an “actual date” on Narrative. Any thoughts?
Reply

Re: Change publication date

Malkazoid ·
+1 on this. It would also allow the network to keep stats - whether internally or publicly - on how much content is being generated fresh for Narrative, and how much of it is recycled. I also think we should consider allowing people who are republishing their own work on Narrative, to provide links to where it was previously published, and check a box as to whether or not they are removing it from the other locations. This would help the Tribunal figure out cases of alleged content theft. If...

I definitely support a publishing date feature. I am undecided about the idea of having the previously published date, as proof of authorship. I have concerns that some people will vote negatively, or more likely decide to not vote at all, on content that was not originally posted on Narrative. In otherwords, a standard emerges that "Narrative only" content gets more highly rewarded. I think if you posted your content elsewhere, and it gets brought up to the tribunal as plagiarism, it is...

I plan on re-using content I've posted elsewhere, but it will be fairly easy for me to prove that I was and am the original author. For old Facebook posts, I'm not going to bother providing a link to the original post - because I don't necessarily want everyone heading to my FB profile and trying to friend me or whatever - but if I'm re-working something from my blog, I'll probably be linking back to the original post.
