Wow, ... Well, it's inevitable that subscribers may "disappear" from regular activity on any social web platform.
But it will be a common occurrence when the site's "environmental fire" is low.
I have been opportune to have been introduced to the web social society since 1999. By then only a few people, especially students and broadcast media links that really got involved in the cyber social world.
It was easy to develop a social site and have it fully functional in a short period of time, such that numerous social sites developed by the early 2000s and many subscribed to different sites at the same time for whatever reason.
I personally may have been subscribed to at least Five because of friends' referrals mainly.
The catch was, the [email protected]@K of the site when you accessed the site's home page, then the easy access to wherever you wanted to go around the site and how you viewed the subscribers' list, easy subscriber to subscriber interaction and the liberty to customize one's own homepage.
Some of us logged in to do stuff about designing our pages and some even hired or asked for help favors from people on the sites to design individuals' pages as theirs.
Or We designed each other's pages on request. Caz people got better and better with creativity. It was fun.
From then, one could easily get sucked in with what everyone else or the site was doing. Thus, accelerating rate of socializing and activity. And advertisers were evidently increasing.
However, in this era where numerous sites exist, the challenge is being able to attract and keep subscribers active.
Many veteran sites have revamped their web host platforms to enhance activity. Yet, still some subscribers can stay away from popular sites like Facebook, MySpace, Blackplanet, Migente, etc ...
I personally hardly ever log in to any of my old sites aforementioned, apart from Facebook where the whole world, and thus friends and associations are based online.
Yet there are times the importance to login thereof is null.
Hellohabesha has the potential to capture a greater audience and maintain activity ... If ONLY ... The websites Host Platform can be revamped to at least function and have an [email protected]@K like Blackplanet or MySpace in the very list, or even as Facebook, why not?!?
I wanted to get in touch with Web host platform designers of those older sites, to research and probably try to employ a project to revamp the site before I could introduce the idea. But still haven't been able to get time to do that research. The mention is due for now though.
Should admin have the time and see the value in employing this idea, it will help the site a lot.
Otherwise, it will just "burnout" like some of the hosting sites that have been. The signs of subscribers "disappearing" from activity or even not login in have come too soon. A sign of evidence that predics and even shows where the site is seemingly going.
I personally check in mainly by reason of supporting the cause and such a good and lucrative initiative. But not many people have that intent and time, should other reasons of engagement dissolve.
So after a few logins with nothing to attract them to stay, they may never return because their reason to check in is frustrated by inactivity.
I think admin can concur with me on this regarding login and activity statistics.
To be honest, I think the web host platform deal was a complete reap off.
In this time and era, NO ONE who cares about a client's success from the service can sell the kind of hosting platform Hellohabesha is using to ANYONE. Maybe just as a classroom notice board, or by instance of an outstanding coursework project assignment hailed and is being made lucrative. Which is Great, but ...
Am just being honest, and here trynna choose softer or sweeter ways to say it. But I wouldn't be fair to the one(s) Am trynna give an honest opinion towards improving the site if I keep flavoring up what Am saying so as not to sound offensive or discouraging a great enterprise.
I would just be like an inconsiderate insensitive salesperson protecting the advantage taker to knock out a quick sale
I will remember to venture into the research on those veteran web host platform designers from years back caz I know that those first platforms will work PERFECTLY WELL for Hellohabesha, but it will also be good for the site owner(s) to revise the setup. Otherwise, it's Reeeally hard to promote the site. I know "someone" recognizes this Eshi beka!!! that's what I gotta say for now.
