THINGS I FORGOT I LOVED ABOUT BEING AN EARLY ADOPTER TO SOCIAL APPS
Years ago I used to be one of the first 100 people on any relevant new app and eventually got burned out. The List App is the first one I've joined in a while and it's refreshing.
- 1.Discovering the "personality" of said appWithin an hour of using a new app you can already see the behaviors and how the community on a larger scale will likely interact. Yes, there will eventually be less openness and honestly, but I think with this app it creates an environment that challenges people to think and inspires creativity.
- 2.InnovationIt's likely a type of interaction you've never seen before. For me personally, I get excited being on a new app because I start thinking of a million ideas on how to improve it or how it can impact the lives of others. As I mentioned before in the community point, it inspires. Innovation is inspiring.
- 3.CommunityIt's very easy to get connected with a group of people you would likely never meet otherwise. There's a sense of deep connection with other users and you're all in this together. It's like you're accepted into the cool kids club without actually having to be cool...or something...
- 4.OwnershipIt's a false sense of ownership because it's likely you don't actually have equity, but you still feel like it's "yours". You are protective, obsessive, and take pride in being there first.
