Time To Make STEEM A Huge Success By Dropping The Focus On "Quality"

To be fair, I see plenty of "shit posts" that do well so I would have to somewhat disagree with your opinion. It is a social media platform and people post what makes them happy or what is happening in their lives already, good or not. I see abusers of the platform and plagiarism getting flagged but not regular shit posters that use their own content or thoughts, they may not get a lot of votes tho, that's the whole point, each of us can decide what we upvote and who we want to support with our SP no mater how little or large. If users want to be that attached to $$ value of their post then maybe they should post what people like. That being said, The platform is already doing what you re saying would like to happen just fine, that's the whole point of uncensored social media environment I believe steemit sustains. The reason I suspect we are not retaining users is because the way it was advertised as a get rich quick platform by some and people got the wrong idea when they saw that wasn't the case like false advertisement. Maybe advertising it a social media platform instead of a money maker and then it can become the next big thing. Frankly my posts are hit and miss even if I put a lot of work into most of them and so be it, at the end of the day it shouldn't be about money but about the social interactions and connection we make like on the other platforms. I think steem has a bright future with all the apps sprouting and all other social media cracking down on censorship to please their advertisers. As long as steemit doesn't support such behavior and remains free of censorship it will do well. Rome wasn't built in a day, it just takes time.
