LeoFinance Threads?

The LeoFinance Engagement update was out and there's a significant drop in numbers in the overall engagements in the den. It was expected because it had been a bit quieter in the last few days, might be that most of us took a little time off to enjoy the things off-screen or we simply needed a break.

But that wouldn't mean that the grind stops. It goes on.

That brought me to the "threads" that Khal talked about in their recent podcast which kind of confirmed that LeoFinance is gearing towards the direction of short form contents.

Good or good?

Accordingly, "LeoThreads" or "Threads" (not the name but let's just put it that way for now) is a version of ProjectBlank built on LeoFinance ("almost ProjectBlank but not exactly") and we might see it before the fall of 2022 per Khal.

So how does "threads" work?

Will work a lot like Twitter and is basically creating ProjectBlank on LeoFinance to test the lightning to see how our structural system works.

"Basically what threads does and is part of the lightning update is pull comments from LeoFinance and use them as top level feed posts. Like you go to a page in LeoFinance that will look like Twitter where there's a comment that shown as a top level tweet and shows all the replies to it and kinda creates a thread of a discussion." - Quoted from Khal [1:29:00 on the podcast]

It sounds to me that the coming of "threads" in LeoFinance will be a good practice ground especially for those who prefer to read and create shorter contents. And perhaps, threads will also encourage more engagement among users.

We shall see how it goes when it comes out.

Per Khal, ProjectBlank is a full-scale platform where everything is in short-form. Personally, I think this will be a game-changer and is going to drastically change how we create contents. Shorter contents will surely become a trend if ProjectBlank comes out.

It is now obvious that LeoMobile was launched in preparation for these upcoming changes in the LeoFinance ecosystem especially on its goal to bringing in more users to the platform which will benefit the whole Hive ecosystem.

What are your thoughts? Are you up for short-form contents?

Seems like a great way to run a test for Project blank and get things ironed out as best as possible for the release of it. Also a way to spark engagement between people.

Yes, it seems so, also think the same way. Hope it will come out in time. The word I heard was "sooner" so we'll see :)

The focus on Long form essay style posts on Hive is a huge turn off for those who aren't and don't want to be authors when they grow up.

Especially when you include the "Quality Content" narrative, flags etc.

A lot of people just want to make a quick comment, rant, ask a question, make a statement or post a meme, but we have a small group around here that has made that fairly impossible without being demonized. *imagine thinking a post is valued on number of words and grammar, vs, being relevant, interesting, funny or thought provoking.

Hopefully Project Black or Threads can give us the ability to those who would like to communicate in a more casual manner.

That is true. When we try to invite others and say it's a blogging site, they most certainly say "not my type" or things like that. But perhaps with the coming of ProjectBlank, it will change when people will see it as Twitter-like where they can as you said "make a quick comment, post or statement."

This might be challenging initially, especially for some who are used to thinking "longer form" are "the" quality contents so it will be interesting to see how "threads" or ProjectBlank will be received.

I also noticed that engagement was down this week. I felt I slacked off in the last few days and I still finished higher than expected in the leo engagement table.

This leo threads initiative seems interesting. It'll be great to see it's hopefully positive effects on the engagement in leofinance

Yeah, it's great that you still kept your engagement up. I slacked a lot to be honest hehe but will try to do better this time.

The "threads" are definitely interesting and yes, hope to see it will have better impact on interactions in the den.

We somehow slowed down for some days but it's good to be back to it. Great that you are keeping yours up :)

And yes, hoping for that too. The devs might be testing things out because the interface is getting wonky hehe.

I'm looking forward to some short form options here. Looks like Threads will be the trial run, which will be interesting.

Threads built in to the community page, where you can go and chit chat with people interested in the same project could be interesting.

Looking forward to seeing what it all looks like.

It will be useful for mobile. Short content can be very informative as well. Can go straight to the point and allows discussion to happen.

Yes, that's true. And since people are getting busier by the day, most would probably prefer short contents that gives value.

Short or long, it doesn't matter. I mean to me hehe. It should speak to your reader's wants and needs, rather than simply typing something you felt like talking about. I too, prefer humor over "thesis-like" kind of blogs. ( I mean that's just me) hehe. Happy weekend, sis!

I can't wait to see this launched soon.

Hopefully we get it this year, short form contents can boost a new mode of interaction on Hive.

The "threads" are said to come out before the fall so that would probably be around September (just my guess though)

I have write something about this in my previous post,some people don't have the ability to write longer post,some just want to have fun with small reply ,makes just on small engagement but it can't be done because you must write at least 300 words before you can be take serious

Yes but I think that could change with ProjectBlank :) We shall see how it will work when it comes out. And just like what namelessnameless said, even short contents can be informative too.

This won’t be a bad idea actually. There are lots of people on here who can’t cope with bourgeois long content posts on here which makes engagement a bit difficult. I guess with the introduction of Leofinance threads engagements on here will be more fun . I for one can’t wait for this to happen in earnest.

Well I have not been on Hive much this week so I know my engagement will be down, that is a given. I have not look at the LEL post, I am guessing it is out, so cannot comment about others.
As for the blank or threads or whatever it is. It seems like comparing apples with oranges. Both are good but can't replace each other completely. You can enjoy both.
In saying that there is dbuzz I think it is called.
Personally speaking if I want short comment engagement I will do it on a post or if truth be told, go to Twitter!

Yes Tito Ed, we all are less engaged this week which is of course not a crime, lol!

And true what you said, both short and long form contents are good and can be enjoyed. Happy weekend

I found that staying offline and continually hearing about crypto prices was a better choice. It's tough being constantly bombarded by Bear Market News.

For most of us, this is a vacation time around the world, so it might be a reason of low engagement.

It's a great new for everyone who love micro-blogging platforms, let's see how it works and the way it works.

Best Wishes to Leo Team. All the best.

Yes, that's true. Some are in their getaways enjoying places.

The feature is something to see how it works when it goes live. For now, we just have to bear with the glitch from time to time as they test it on the background :)

ProjectBlank would be greatly welcomed, especially for days one falls into the mood for short stories.
