    I've heard of the app, but I haven't made an account. Everyone from Instagram started using it yesterday, but as far as I know, it's impossible to post anything because their server is down. It doesn't look that interesting though, just another Instagram knock-off.

    What really matters is if they can build an audience in time before the hype dies, if the hype itself was ever big enough.

    Personally i can't really see the appeal of vero.. i mean the chronological timeline only leads to people posting super often in order to get traction.. design wise its not as good as instagram

    only thing i like is that you can categorize ur friends way better and easier than in facebook. their security doesn't look good to me.. you can like as many posts after another as you want so it might already work for direct sales and brand building

    It has potential, but you know, once in a few years, there is a so call 'the next ...' social network.

    Look up 'Peach' and 'Saharah', they were onve hyped up like Vero now.

    yeah you're probably right.. i have the feeling people are mostly pissed with facebook and instagrams low engagement thats why influencers are looking for a replacement

    Hell yeah I agree with you. IG and Facebook are pissing people off because of their algorithms. You dont even know if posts are real. I post something and I can see my post in my app but on the internet nobody can find it...

    Everything was better in 2013

    There's is always something waiting in the wings that will be the next big thing, it's currently #1 on Google play store so that in and of itself interesting enough to spend a little time checking it out.

    What are you smoking, that's just wrong...
    Unlike Twitter which is popular due to celebrities, Facebook is popular because every average Joe is on it.

    Was reading about Bebo, a Facebook-type social network which saw major success in some pockets across the world, but remained in obscurity elsewhere.

    A new platform means a new market. I think if you can understand the platform and its audience, and tailor your approach according to that, you could capitalize on it like an untapped mine. Little or no competition, so a potentially huge ROI.

    ofcourse they joined because it was the "first" social media platform, at least that is what they say.
    most people don't take information seriously but its the most powerful weapon
    and the state of isreal is profiting through facebook.
    I know this sounds stupid but deep inside you know its true
    for example google would not be able to make their deep mind experement without us googling stuff.
    and facebook would not have all these information without us liking shit.
    now they are planning to make an AI without the knowledge what it can do
    I can't believe that people are not saying anything

    I created an account. Posted a link to my site where I sell social media services (likes, followers, etc).

    Started following people and adding to friends or whatever. Got many follow backs etc.

    Didn't notice a single visitor to my site. Maybe I did get a few visitors, but my analytics didn't show me where they came from. But I sure didn't make any sales. And I got a pretty badass site (in my own humble opinion).
