Although the matter of fact is that this segment is concentrated with dominant players but this platform has welcomed up new opportunities in order to realise new ideas. In case you are looking to create a social media, it is quite essential to understand that you must readily dedicate considerable finance to create a mobile app which is regarded as a prerequisite for a successful project.
Although there are two options available in case you will be developing from scratch or can be added up into the web version. But there are few considerations which are achieved by Fluper after creating the most engaging social Media app, without which, it would really make your app inexistent.
Establishing connection with social media
Although a user already left their credentials in a number of social media apps which really manifest the fact that the lesser steps separate the user from the mature interaction with an application, the better. It does not leave with any reason to do it all over again. So, it would be rather beneficial to reduce the way into one button “connect with”. Although the essence of social media apps are intensifying day by day since it offers greater connectivity with acquaintances all across the world. Existing social connection will raise social graph which can be leveraged with the existing connection with social media.

Favourable circumstances for self-expression
Reputation in social groups are quite a matter of concern for any user as far as social networking is concerned. Here self-expressions come into the picture since it would define one’s individuality hence every user wants to feel unparalleled in order to show the world his level of creativity, extraordinary as well as outside the box he or she is. There are few features that must be supported by social media app for instance customisation of profile picture, status, mood as well as occasional uploading of videos, audios and all other related stuffs in festivals, events etc. hence user id, bio data, customisation of profile picture, catchy slogan etc. help to enhance not only the user’s credibility but identity as well.
