Product Stuff - Launch edition.
Hey there! Rob here giving you a quick update on how things are going at SQUAD SOCIAL HQ.
Many people have asked us how we're approaching the build of the product so this is the first in a series of posts I'll be writing about the build of our product. I hope you enjoy them and if you have any thoughts or comments, please send them my way.
Privacy Privacy Privacy
This week we've been focussed on privacy. In particular trying to answer the question of how to make users feel safe sharing information about the things they love with the community without worrying whether the information will get into the wrong hands.
As you can see, we'll be offering privacy settings covering who can see your content, who can search for you by username and who can send you unsolicited contacts.
We've also been playing around with verification of users and have settled on (for now) using mobile verification to make sure we don't get too many spam accounts. From the beta release we'll send you a short code to enter into SQUAD SOCIAL to verify your mobile phone number. Depending on the feedback we get, we'll look at additional verification steps if we think it's important.
Want to be a beta tester?
We're getting closer than ever to our beta release in the new year so if you're interested in becoming a beta tester please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Big love from the SQUAD SOCIAL squad.
