Pengsquare aims to be a social content platform. The content part might not be easy from a technical perspective, but from a conceptional point of view, there are no question that need to be answered. But what makes up the ‘social’ part? Hard to define, right?
Even without finding a strict answer to what ‘social’ is, it probably always includes getting in touch, exchanging ideas, is some form talking to each other. From a technical perspective, this is a basic problem – how to send and receive messages? And this is how our first attempt was designed and built… and of course it proved to be insufficient – an email-inspired messaging system, where you ping pong messages back and forth.
Both we and our beta users quickly determined, that this sort of messaging will simply not work. It’s impractical and does not perform well when thinking ‘social’. Communicating with others should be fun and easy. Hence, we are currently redesigning the whole message sub-system!
We can’t stress enough, how important it is to us, that user can create something new, a new network and leverage the communication devices we have in place. Hence, every hour of this redesign is well spent!
