Well Snaps is proving to be quite a popular feature.
Allowing Chippers to earn 2 points per Snap received, and sharing a piece of your life at the same time, its becoming a rather big staple for the everyday user.
This is so cool.
I remember when Snaps was hugely unpopular a few months ago. It had a ton of bugs and was slow and sluggish. Snaps sometimes literally took 30 seconds to send (largely due to our cluttered and unoptimised code).
People kinda gave up using Snaps and it just didn’t take off as expected.
Well times have changed. My friend’s list which is now only 24 people big (due to us testing huge amounts of features which requires me to spam my own friends list) is regularly sending Snaps to and from each other.
I love seeing the snippets of people’s lives and know that they are real people using a platform that I created.
I don’t mean this in an egotistical sense, absolutely not. I am just amazed that we have built a platform that, in it’s most archaic form, allows people to share a moment with each other - around the world or anywhere with internet. Amazing.
We know that visual media is the future and that’s a standout for JellyChip - as we grow larger we must take advantage of all the ways people can share their lives with each other - and obviously blend in JellyChip’s added benefit to change lives.
This is super. There’s only one thing I would change now and that is to declutter my Snaps list. Even with 24 friends, I’m receiving about 50 Snaps a day.
Sometimes I can’t read all of them and I don’t want this list cluttering up my UI. It’s not that I’m lazy or indifferent, I just sometimes cannot read every Snap - because I’m so busy. I’m sure this applies to other people as well.
Also this has come about because of our hugely popular SEND TO ALL Snap function we released two weeks ago. So I think we’ll build a new rule. Snaps will be deleted 24 hours after being sent - whether they’re opened or not.
If you want to read a Snap, you’ll probably open it before 24 hours anyway. If you’re not interested in the Snap or the person, you’ll probably ignore it and it’ll delete from your Snaps list in 24 hours.
This will keep Snaps clean and you happy. It’ll also keep the Snaps feature fresh. The JC backend team is working hard on this now and we’ll expect it to be in this week’s update.
I love how our community is evolving and starting to truly use JellyChip the way it was designed.
Yay. We love you.
