The Value of Steemit Communities

One future plan on Steemit I really look forward to is communities. There is so much value with having this apart of this platform and in my opinion, crucial to the growth.

There are so many people with different interests and large communities can be made up of various parts of different interests. As adding communities is the next logical step, this will create more economic and social opportunities for users and businesses.

Social Opportunities



We already see the social opportunities form on Steemit with interactions with one another on different interests and topics. These have become more interpersonal where we share our ideas and help one another beyond Steemit. Having built relationships on Steemit and in real life have created connections that continue to grow and strengthen.

With a mass influx of new users, having Steemit organized into different communities only makes sense. Not everyone is interested in the same things and at times are looking for something specific or place to belong and that can lead to new communities being developed and create stronger cultural value.

Having communities on Steemit will allow groups to have their own space and preventing a centralized dominance while creating more competition in social groups.

Business Opportunities


With a strong online community, businesses can take advantage of building better relationship with their customers. We see this happen on Facebook and Twitter of businesses having their own official page. Having consumers interact with each other and with businesses can lead to customizing services and products to meet social and commercial needs. This can build loyalty and in return can generate strong economic returns. This can also cut the costs for businesses of running their own customer support services and make things more convenient to customers and the company.

With businesses involved, a separate market place can be integrated to buy and sell goods and services across communities to generate revenue from transactions and possible advertising. Communities could strike deals directly with vendors and become distribution channels for products and services to generate revenues.

With the addition of User Issue Asset(UIA) tokens later in the future, the combination with communities can generate large amounts of revenues and create competition and partnerships between communities and businesses.

Just sharing some my views on this. I'm excited and very interested on how Steemit, Inc will have communities work.

Great Post @bitcoinparadise.
A myriad of small groups and communities cooperating will bring more democracy to Steemit.

The community and the developers make Steemit an awesome place. Thanks :)

Different communities would grow differently and the dynamics between them would be a very interesting organism. A live look derivative of human emotion with fractal price discovery.

That's interesting. I thought you were part of the ESteem app... I'll check it out.

·
·

Nope! Sorry for the confusion! The "e-steem app" and the ESteem Network are completely separate!

That is a very good post thank you :))

·

Thank you :)

It's okay for you when I resteem this ?

·
·
·

Of course it's okay.

Well, I'm new to Steemit and cryptocurrencies/blockchains, so I'm not sure my opinion is entirely informed. Having said that, Steemit having better defined communities seems like a great idea. The involvement of many corporations, on the other hand, sounds a little iffy to me. I wonder if they could dominate in a way that makes the whales here look like redfish. So I'll take a wait-and-see approach on that.

·

Well if corporations get involved that should increase the price of STEEM, increase transactions and that's a good thing.

·
·

I understand where you're coming from. What I understand very little about is the interaction between Steem and Steemit, although I'm trying to learn what I can as I go along. How much does Steem depend on Steemit, I wonder. Like I said, though, I'm taking a wait-and-see approach since there's so much about it I don't know.

·

·

In time you will.
Don't wait too long before STEEM becomes more expensive ;)

·

I understand :)

Great Post. Thanks. Upvoted and Followed. Would appreciate the same. :C)

The future of social media will have blockchain model like Steemit. Tomorrow there won't be a facebook or G+, it will be replaced with drivers like Steemit. It surprises me still how few people know about Steemit, but I guess its still the early part of the trend. Twitter might be savvy enough to adopt something similar, as Steemit isn't quite the 140 Char type. But I can see nearly every other social media type venture following this track.

·

Oh there will be also a seperate fronted like the 140 char type https://steemit.com/zappl/@zappl/zappl-website-development-teaser. This will join https://busy.org/, https://beta.chainbb.com/, and many more frontend UI's.

·

Cool! Thanks for sharing. I will keep tabs on this for the future.

Yes we have a lot to look forward to.

·

This is going to be huge! :P

·

I do too but this post was more about a new feature to be added to the platform.
