The Idea for Social Network
Almost all of us live now in the digital world. We read the news on the blogs, mostly type than writing by hand, a big part of our friends can be virtual. We want to personalize this world and make it more comfortable for a living. But can we personalize and manage our internet content? Every day we check mail and social networks, but is it really inspire? Did you have so that one comment, photo or message spoils your mood for the whole day?
Another question is it: we have a lot of friends on Facebook, followers in Instagram and Twitter etc and we share the best photos for them, the interesting news and articles. But how often we share our fears, feelings, those that are really important for us? Have your friends on internet with whom you can share your problems, even the most difficult, and they understand you and listen, and they're also be experiencing the same or have some experience in past? Is it important for you to have minded in that you like, hate or fear?
And the last question: how often you do something only for yourself? Write your impressions not for the like on Facebook, make a photo, not for the heart on Instagram, make the video, not for the browsing on Youtube. In fact, all we do in the internet world accepted to evaluate by the number of likes, followers and comments. Do you want to to have a place where you can be yourself, write about your concerns, share photo for yourself and talk with people about what you don't dare to talk to anyone? And no one has the right to evaluate you.
This application/social network can make your internet world personal and comfortable for you: search results, news, advertising that you want to see and what don't irritate you. Your own place with your rules and without evaluation. And the place where you can talk with people about everything, where can find minded and help.
This application is a personal cabinet with the customizable search, news feed from the other social networks, personal diary with notifications and the system anonymous chats with a wide range of topics for discussion, where the sides are selected on personal preferences and dislikes.
The principal rules of application are integration, customization and personal space. This is achieved by complete anonymity in the diary and in the charts, access to the registration to the other application (like as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube etc) and efficient personalize filter system.
The application focuses on all types of devices: PC, Smartphones, Tablets etc. Using all its functions requires access to geolocation data, the system of push-up notification and internet access.
The application takes the form of 3 tables, each of the table has its own function. Let’s look at each table individually.
The central table is a personal cabinet of the user. Here user can find own diary, notes, reminders and reblogged posts from the other social networks. Also here the place for the personalized search and news feed. User can attach the accounts from the video and music subscriptions.
The visual decision is very simple but has a few personal themes. User has a nickname, avatar and may have a name for the diary, epigraph and shuffle the elements of the table.
Let’s look at the elements.
Diary / Notepad element
The main rule is anonymity.
The posts in the diary and the whole diary can be visible for the other users of the application, or hidden. It's regulated in the settings.
Posts in the diary excluded from the search from the outer resources. Search is available only inside the personal diary.
Diary posts cannot be reposted by other users inside the application or reblogged to the other resources. Content cannot be copied or saved.
Posts in the diary can be reblogged from the other sources, for example from Instagram, Youtube, Pinterest etc.
Posts can consist of text, photo, video and audio, sketch or map. Posts can be added from the local device files or typed, recorded, drawn by the user directly using the application. Maps can be created using Google maps. Posts can consist of the combination of text, photo, audio and etc.
User can add properties to the post:
- make post open or hide for the other users;
- add a reminder, it can be connected with location or/and time;
- add labels (label system is similar to the Gmail label system).
In the text, the user can use hashtags for the internal search.
A published post can be edited, deleted or commented. Only user can comment own posts.
Post include the date, time and name. It can also include the location. Default properties can be customized in the diary settings.
A few examples. You want to bake a pie. So you find the recipe and reblogged it to your diary. Also, you add the property to it - geolocation - your favorite supermarket.
When you find yourself on the supermarket location, you receive a push-up message to your smartphone with the diary post. You can get it or save for the next time.
After your baking, you can add a text comment to your recipe post in the diary or make a photo and add it as a comment.
You can do it on the different devices: PC and Smartphone for example and they will synchronize when you will have internet access. You don’t need to have internet connection in the supermarket to receive the push-up message, all reminders will be saved on the application cache when it synchronized on the different devices. As a result, you have to ability to manage your actions and possibility to keep an eye on the results.
Another example. You're planning a meeting with friends at the pub on Friday evening but on Saturday morning you have very important breakfast with your Mom. You add the post to your diary with the audio message to yourself. Something like this: "John, go home! You're totally drunk and your Mom will wait for you at 10 o'clock in the morning in Charlie's Cafe."
Also, you add two properties to this reminder: time - 12:00 midnight, for example, and geotag for the pub.
If these two conditions will meet you will receive a push-up message at 12 o'clock in the designated pub. As a result, you have a flexible customizable system of reminders that is available from the different devices.
Communication with the other diary users
Despite the anonymity and the lack of evaluation, you can view other non-locked diaries. And if you're interested in the diary and its contests you can follow this diary. But all diaries haven't followers counters and availability of followers doesn't show anywhere, including the diary owner. You have a list of diaries that you followed, but you didn't know if someone is following you, so availability of followers doesn't influence your content. You can be free in your statements.
You can prohibit following your diary in the settings. For your privacy, you can change your nickname at the settings and ask about changing the link to your diary. After this, your diary will be deleted from the all followed lists.
If you like some individual post in the diary you cannot report it to your diary or to another application or copy it. But you can add this post to your saved quotes list. For your convenience, you can add hashtags and labels to saved quotes for the easy search.
If you feel the urgent need to talk with the other diary user you can send a private mail. You can receive the private emails defaults, but you prohibit it in the diary settings.
In private mail conversation, such variants are possible: you can answer the mail and continue dialogue; no matters answer you to the mail or not, you can do these actions:
- - flag this mail, mark the mail such way you marked that it is an offensive message or contains spam. (Users, who send spam or offensive emails will be blocked);
- - block this person, you just don't want to continue the conversation;
- - send hugs, you can express your sympathy by sending hugs.
You can use the different combinations of the actions. For example, you can send hugs to appreciate the message and then block the conversation, show that you don't look for the communication.
Search element is Google search with personal filters. Read more about the filters lists in part 2 and 3.
Just one example. If you have in your "sad things list" active element "child", and in your "happy things list" active element "rainbow" so when you searching in your customizable search "knitted hat" you will receive the rainbow-colored hats in the first and just hats for the men and woman, no hats for the children.
News feed element
You can read all the news in your personal cabinet gathering from all linked accounts and filtered according to your "sad things list" or manually.
For example, you don't want to see your ex-friend photos and updates so you mark his nickname in the Facebook and Instagram settings. Also, you don't want to read about IOS news in your favorite blog because you have an Android device so mark IOS in the setting for this blog. As a result, you will receive clear and not-irritation news gathering at one, and you don't waste your time and don't spoil the mood from the news.
The table on the right - "Happy list"
The right and left tables are the main instruments for the customization, filtering, and personalization of application. The right table "happy" inspire, it's the list of all things that can bring joy to your personality and cause only positive emotions.
This table consists from the three main elements.
In this part of application, you can chat with other users about all positive things. You can read started threads, participate in them or start a new one. You can search for the existing threads using the keywords, search for the "hottest" threads or search for the "newest" threads.
You personally can react to any comment in the same manner that you react to the private emails. You can send hugs to the user, block the user's comment (in this way you will not read the comments by this user but blocked by you user will write without any restriction), or you can flag the comment (in this case you mark this comment as an affront or spam).
You can follow for the interesting chats with or without participation. The list of the followed threads also displays the availability of new comments in these threads.
If you want to talk with the other user closely you can go to the private conversation, it's not private mail. All the private conversation views show on the according to "happy" or "sad" table.
In this part, you can find inspiration and a good mood from the linked accounts and the whole web. It's the search in the news according to the "happy list" preferences. The inspiration can get from the whole accounts and from the separately selected account.
For example, you have "kitty" and "rain" in your list, that things always brings you the best mood. Get Inspired will show you video from Youtube, photos from Instagram, arts from the DeviantArt etc., everything connected with these tags and sorted by the newest and the most related posts.
It's not a search in your news feed, this inspiration search is in all contest without preferences for your friends in social networks.
This is the most important part that affects the whole application. Here is the place for all things which can inspire you, give you the best positive emotions. These things you prefer to the first in your search and you want to talk about these things because they are important.
Such "happy list" makes the daily joy more significant and noticeable and prevents depression.
Table on the left – "Sad List"
This table shows everything that can bring sadness, things, people. It's a personal "sad list". This section is structured similarly to the "happy list".
It's very important to divide "sad" and "happy" charts. Because the same things can make to different people different emotions. In the thread dedicated to the spiders can gathered people who have spiders at home, like them and care for them. Also, it can be another group of people who have agoraphobia and they don't want to meet with the people who like spiders. Even so innocent category as children can cause opposite emotions. In the "happy talk" section gather people who have, love and raise them. They want to talk about schools and kindergartens, parenting practices. But there are people who can not have children for some reason or lost child. They don't want to meet that "happy group", they want to speak with the people with the same problems who can help them and support. The people who will understand them.
The "sad" talk section is organized in the same manner as the "happy" section. With one exception. In these charts can write people with real huge problems: in depression, close to the suicide, raped, tortured or with an addiction. It very hard to speak about bad things with the real people, and not all have someone to talk to. Speaking on the internet is easier. And it's easy to help. So I propose a system of volunteer mentors who will view the chat and real offers to help (phone numbers and addresses of help centers) and advice.
Here you can manage your news feed, you can customize all your news in your accounts excludes the things and the peoples that you don't want to see and read. Also, you can customize the separate account.
And here you can disable the filter corresponding to your "sad list".
As well as the "happy list" this is the most important part that affects the whole application. Here is the place for all things which can upset you, give you the worst emotions. These things you prefer don't see in your search but you want to talk about these things because they are important.
Such "sad list" helps people with problems to speak about, help to find help and support. It gives confidence that you are not alone in your problems.
This application can be used by commercial and social services. Without anonymity and filter lists, just as an open diary. Users can follow these commercial and social diaries according to their location and preferences. Because the application uses geolocation and push-up messages, commercial and social services can use this application to promote or inform the specific local and concerned users.
For example, you have a bakery and every day you publish news with the fresh baking, and everyone who follows your diary receives this news, also everyone who has baking in the "happy list" and is located near your bakery receives your news with the "get inspired" service in the application. Another example. You like pets especially dogs and have it in your "happy list". So you can follow your local Animal Sanctuary or Organization for Animal Protection and give your help.
And also an advertisement in the search and support services of this application will be more effective because of the filter system. Users will not receive advertising of those products, that they are not interested in, and get the advertising that is associated with their "happy list".
This application can be used very widely. This place is just for you, here you can be honest with yourself, there are no ratings and play to the audience. This application can bring real good, it can help people understand themselves, help in communication, assist in overcoming the difficulties. And of course, it can make your life easier and comfortable.
That's why I don't want to sell this idea I want to be a part of it, I want to work for you. I know all about this project and see new and new details every day. I'm not a soft-developer and I'm rather creator. I cannot write the code so I need the friendly team.
