Where is Steemit.io and why we need so many??

in steemit •  20 days ago

Steemit , the name , the brand and the identity. An amazing social platform develop on Steem blockchain for Blogging and Sharing. When , I was introduced into Steemit in Oct-2017, I logged into Steemit.io to Sign up also my first interface into the beautiful community was through Steemit.io.

Now over the period of approx 1 year (330 days) that i spent on this platform, i feel slowly and steadily Steemit.io is loosing its charm and at same time identity. Its not about falling Steem prices and low rewards.....May be I am wrong, but a question keep coming in my mind

How many of us , use Steemit.io to access Steemit ??

Us including me, i too hardly use the web interface to login into my acxount. Even every day i see new interfaces being developed on Steem connect to access Steemit for Blogging and Sharing. I have now a list of few which i know, even if we exclude @dlive and @dtube as both of them are videos platform.

  • Busy.org
  • Steempress.
  • Steempeak
  • esteem
  • partiko
  • Appics
  • Steepshot
  • zappl

Even I have excluded, @steemhunt @utopian.io, @dlike as these are outside the scope of blogging and sharing .

Now why we need to so many Steemconnect platform for Steeming? Even there is no nees to have multiple api interface, everyday there is new platform introduction .
The web interfaces are pulling up the user through their own rewards program, with each post from their steem interface they rewars the contents. So that to keep the userbase.

In contention to achive more userbase they are reducing the steemit user access. People in in search of few rewards started valueing other interfacea rather than using Steemit.io. help me with some insight into need of so many option that people are using rather than Steemit.io.

What is the harm, if we keep using Steemit.io to login rather than other interfaces.

These are few question that keep popping up in my mind. Please help me with the Answers in case you have insightz on it

Stay Calm....

Keep Steeming...Steem On !!!

Namaste from @steemflow

I've used busy and steemkitchen to post but have stuck mainly with steemit, don't really see the need for so many. Just my humble opinion :)

·

Whatever be the case..i love your veg delicies 😉

I'e been testing out Steempeak, and it provides a whole lot moreof useful features...

·

Agree...but why we cant socialose with steemit.io and why we need so many other interfaces?

Sorry for my late reaction, @steemflow, but I had a really busy weekend. I'm glad to see @paulag jumped in and answered your questions.

Ohh so nice of you...Thank you👍

I have hear this is good, need to try it

Hi @paulag but why we need so many different interfaces ?? Cant we have a single window Steemit.io to access....??

Posted using Partiko Android

its not that we need them, it just we have the ability to create them. Steemit Inc manage steemit.com, but the steem blockchain is decentralized. Anyone can create a front end for steem if you have the skills then why not? Developers often (not always) charge for using their interface, but tend offer different/additional functionality.

·
·
·
·

Ohh i see....👍completelly make sense.... just pops in a new question....why developers not enhancing steemit.io as they are putting up in their interface? Why not to make steemit.io more friendlier as they develop their own.....i think the number of new app keeps on adding evryrday...andnumber of steemit.io user decreasing.

steemit Inc that own steemit.com are more concerned with developing the blockchain over the user interface. This is where there skill are, they are a blockchain company not a social media company. steemit.com is basically an example of what can be done. the steem ecosystem is rather complicated and is very very young

·
·
·
·
·
·

Ohh..this make sense👍 I was totally confused with so many options, and new development every other day. It was bit difficult to make new user understand... Thanks for helping me out.....👌

no problem, any questions just ask :-)

Some interfaces take a chunk of the rewards. I am sticking with busy.

·

But the question why we nees so many interfaces???

Posted using Partiko Android

·
·

We do not need them. Some people like one over another. It is a matter of choice. Steepshot for example, takes a high percentage of your reward. I am not using it anymore.

·
·
·

There are many who take rewards...steepshot esteem steemhunt utopian. I find busy good and now the partikp mobil app both. Give 100 % rewards back to user

To new arrivals all these options may be confusing as well, I think one or two gateways are good but not sure so many are needed

·

Exactly..wondering whom and where to go..every other gateway is offering user with lucrative reward...thereby erasing tye identity of Steemit

Posted using Partiko Android

·

@steemflow thats why anyone new i bring in I just tell them a couple of the options
for the most part I use Busy, Steemit and fast reply, but I may look more into Steempeak

Nice topic.

I use steemit.com to access my posts sometimes. I also use other interfaces regularly. I think everyone and everything should survive on this platform. A single entity cannot be allowed to rule the whole things.

·

There is one comon thing among all apps..i.e steemit...so why all those same deatures cant be developed on that are available on other app?

Posted using Partiko Android

·
·

If someone develops the most effective interface, what will others do? So, it is OK that we are having newer ideas and the nicest innovations.

·
·
·

Then why not to enhance the mother i.e.. Steemit.io

Posted using Partiko Android

Started to work my way through steempeak a few days ago ... seems to be a maximum upload limitation there, I think?! Still not sure if there are any useful alternatives ... maybe Elegance. Quite confusing for a Newbie like me :)

·

But why we need so many interfaces..cant we continue with steemit.io?

Posted using Partiko Android

·
·

Yeah, so true ... I don't really need anything new right now at this stage ... it's quite hard anyway to learn all about markdown ... this will keep me busy for a longer time ... for sure

·
·
·

Its not about markdown @anutu ....why we have so many different interfaces

Posted using Partiko Android

·
·
·
·

Yes, I know. I meant, I have to use my time to learn first for markdown before I get into any other adventure with something else (like any new steem app or addition) ... just wanted to say it takes a hell of a lot of time to find my way around here. More new apps means for me more questions, more time to invest and so on. I need nothing else ... missing nothing, don't need any more new apps.

So sorry I am German and I try hard to express in english what I want to explain. This can sometimes be confusing ...

Unfortunately this is not always that easy for me, very sorry for any misunderstandings ...

·
·
·
·
·

Haha..so sorry @anutu i didnt meant to point you . looming at markdown i thoight you must have mixed it with some other post..it may happen while replying.....great to see your insight.. I too only know few basic...there are many markdown article on steemit you can refer any of them

Posted using Partiko Android

·
·
·
·
·
·

All good! Yeah it is sometimes tricky for me to explain precisely. Missing so many words and have to look up many, so sometimes I lose half of a sentence when jumping back and forth ...

I LOVE the free markdown classes by @sumatranate ... I am very grateful for his great work and support!!!

For me, personally the look of my posts have to work with the story and from post to post I feel better and feel more comfortable. (I am artist/designer and writer and crazy on aesthetics :)

I have everything I need here on steemit to write nice posts.

Have a great weekend!

Well, I did not know all those interfaces, except for Steempress and Busy.

The more you know.

·

Strange....arent you aware of steemit.io?

Posted using Partiko Android

I've looked at some of the other interfaces, and still keep coming back to the old steemit.io. If some folks like to change things up a little I don't see the harm.

·

@rwedegis i agree..why people keep coming with all new interfaces....that keep messed....

28 comments ke baad bhi answer nahi mila @steemflow! 😅
Why we need so many interface apps but? Himalaya mein ja kar sadhna karo, uttar Apne aap mil jaayega vats! 🙃

Now i doubt in my english.😯..can you check...i thought i asked correctly.... Still not even a correct answer....😒

I don’t doubt your English . I understood your question . I was amused how you are repeating your question on every comment so I also repeated your question. It was all in good and jovial faith.

Hahaha...i dont mean that..i though i dont ablebto put up my question in better...no one answered mybquestion however keep putting their insights

Steemit walo ko himalaya le jaunga..😝

Posted using Partiko Android

I wonder the same thing too.. each have different features to offer..its like im steeming using different interfaces..

Like when im posting my ulogs, i have to use the ulogs.org/busy.org. When it comes to Photography post, I use the @esteem version. And in my commenting splurges, its @partiko! It makes commenting so much easier and i can keep track of my notifications too..

Sometimes! I get confused and used the wrong interfaces! Hahaha..

Great insights! For posting, will it be easier for you to post using Paritko if we support multiple photos? Is that the only thing that's missing?

Posted using Partiko Android

·
·

Wow! Really you'd do that @partiko??? I would very much appreciate it if you would.. its really hard to post with just one picture. Most people find it amusing browsing to several photos as the author narrates his/her story..

For posting own photographs or through camera...its a bit lack behind...hope @partiko will get back the feature asap

I hope they working on it now.. its one of the top problems..

I think in case you are using any sourced images then it is possible to upload multiple images but in case we need to upload from mobile memory then there is any issue...but can be possible but take time

Partiko is very much helpful in community engagement.....posting is easy when we have sourced images
