A USER PROFILE PAGE! - What Steemit.com NEEDS.

in steemit •  4 months ago 

I still believe that Steemit.com as the leading front end (website) on the Steem blockchain can make a serious BOOM by doing a few straight forward additions.

What I feel to be THE MOST IMPORTANT of all additions that Steemit.com needs is the following:

A USER PROFILE PAGE!

Simple as that.

Believe it or not, all the reputable and well known of social networks out there have accounted for the fact that we as people like to know about the people we are dealing with. They have made this possible with a click of finger to all the people on the network.

Now, some may say that this doesn't mean much, but ask yourself, do you prefer to know a bit about a person/user prior to interacting with them?

Let me put it this way, Would you feel more comfortable interacting with someone if you were able to know a bit about them prior to interacting with them?

Wouldn't you like to see how they present themselves without having to scroll through pages and pages of links and posts?

I believe that it is more than safe to say that for the majority of us the answer would be YES.

So if ALL the reputable and successful social network sites out there have this, it is safe to say that we too shall have to accommodate to the needs and wants of the market that we have tapped into!
Remember, THE CUSTOMER GETS WHAT THE CUSTOMER WANTS!

Now, I have slapped together a simple graphic of what I am talking about:

PROFILE

So with one click on this MENU BUTTON opens up a page in the existing template that we have, a page in which is everything that the user has written and made available to share with the public about themselves as an individual!

Talk about taking over the LikedIn market with one hit and making Steemit comparable to any other social network out there as far as user friendliness goes.

Talk about making Steemit a platform to go to when wanting to find out information about a user who wants to be seen on the internet!

Alexa, Google and what ever other relevant services out there shall see Steemit jump to the top of all the rankings in record time!!!!!!

Business people, Artists, Actors, Potential Employees, Employers, Writers and countless other people who want to be found on the internet shall be found on Steemit!

WOW, BOOM, WONDERFUL, UNBELIEVABLE

&

SO SIMPLE!

I originally posted about this about a year ago, spoke with various Steemians about it back then but as usual, well, you know the rest.

So here I am again, copy pasting a part of the original post from back then, again asking for those who can relay this notion to the right people in Steemit Inc to do so and to consider ALL the benefits that this can ensure Steem and the future of Steem as a whole.

I will also stress that we do not yet have a direct KYC option on Steem, our only KYC option for Steemians is via our attested Steemian user accounts on Obytes (formerly known as Gbyte).

ref: KYC For Steemians? HOW?

So a "Profile Page" could be a great step in the right direction for a lot more than just what meets the eye at first glance.

Had to throw that in there.

Thinking out of the box!

Where it might be harder to convince Steemit Inc to do this kind of thing when they have already been paid. It would be easier to convince say another site maintainer (@leprechaun) who is just looking for things to do.

My proposal, is the profile information is and would continue to be stored in the blockchain but in Steemfiles you would be able to pull it up other Steem condensers will be able to follow suit or Steemfiles will get popular if I could get just earn a small amount from perhaps votes or ads, so that I can cover my VPS costs.

Right now, I only have the test site up. It used to be a way of downloading files for a fee but there were not enough downloads for me to continue doing that.

I am sure that there are ample options out there for each front end owner (private business) to incorporate various features to their "websites".

Your suggestion could very well be one of those options that they should look into.

Again, I don't wish to suggest how anyone should go about their business as far as their economical planning goes, the goal here is as was stated between the lines and somewhat directly, to ensure the customers get what the customers want and need. In this case we the people, who make up a social network being the customers.

We have shown how valuable we are in the past, i.e. when Steem tokens needed to be listed on various other crypto sites/services. So the number one asset of Steem is US, the people that make up the social network and this is what needs to be expanded and diversified so as to include all sorts of investors such as yourself, myself and millions more like us!

Have you approached someone from steempeak or busy about this idea. I really think youd get a better response as Steemit has more important issues to focus on than this, but this idea would fit in nicely with what it seems those other 2 projects are working on improving the interface.

I hear you, however the reality is that Steemit.com (the website) is still the number one ranking site that is hooked up to our blockchain, hence it is of vital importance that this website have this feature added to it. I am sure that other front ends will follow suit.

I guess my focus is on the overall expansion of Steem and I tend to look at the reality of things instead of "the easy way out". Where we can get the most achieved for Steem is what matters and as stated, as things stand and probably will stand for many more moons to come, the website www.steemit.com owned by Steemit inc. is the most influential entry point to the Steem blockchain.

Not to say that other front ends shouldn't do this, just stating the facts that stand behind my logic for singling out www.steemit.com.
