Designing the Munday Application
The Munday app is video and image sharing application for iOS and Android mobile devices. The shared content is aggregated into feeds based on the user's location. The content is voted up or down by the users, which democratically filters less interesting content and promotes engaging content. This process takes place on a global scale too. Content with the highest engagement is shown in the Global Feed.
That's how our application works. It is sort of like a mobile first Reddit. A big difference is that users are only able to upload content created in real time through their camera.
The application was developed by a very small group of people. I think this is our greatest strength and weakness. Since I contracted out the coding development, I have had a 100 percent creative control of the app.
There are a lot of social networking apps on the market. Breaking into the market to create a social platform that millions of people love is hard. It's hard because networks like Instagram and Snapchat have their roots deeply entrenched into the world's user base. It's hard because people only use so many apps on their phone, and bothering to invest time into a new network requires energy that many people just don't care to spend. It's hard because designing a network that is different enough to be valuable requires a lot of time.
So why would someone want to try?
The risk reward ratio is good. At least in my situation it is. If someone can create a platform that 50 million people use daily, then they're looking at a very early retirement. Doing so is neither easy or impossible.
The ranking algorithm we have created for the Munday app is a step towards success. It is similar to Reddit's ranking algorithm, but it does not function exactly like it. news feed where the content is creating the next network can only be done outside of big companies. Big companies end up acquiring Munday social network from other apps on the market is the ranking algorithm
User created video and image content is king. People want to share their life and enjoy doing so.
