I recently learnt about a term called "Social Liquidity", I was reading this awesome article on the different DeFi platforms and came across this paragraph.
Facebook is terrible, but we all keep opening the app because everyone is there. That’s also why no one leaves, even though we all wish we could. One could say Facebook has social liquidity.
It rang true for me in the context of Blurt, if we have all of our social connections on Blurt why would we use another medium? I'm not really that hooked on FB, but Discord is where all my connections are so for me Discord has the most Social Liquidity.
I think future iterations of the Blurt UI should include profile pages that are oriented to friends and team members, maybe Clan/Team tags, friend suggestions based on location and even interests and voting patterns etc, Blurt should work for its users to connect them to each other.
This will likely come in a future iteration of the frontend when we move away from the legacy Condenser. In the meantime however we should think of ways to improve Social Liquidity on Blurt and bring people here to connect with each other.
As an example, Blurt is uniquely positioned to capture the attention of the Raspberry Pi hobbyist community, which is vast. We have several enthusiasts already so why not bring in some more and teach them how to launch Blurt nodes and be part of our community.
We recently Tweeted an update with instructions on how to setup a validator node thanks to @dotwin1981.
Please share with me your thoughts on how we as a community can use the current platform and even Blurt related communication channels such as Twitter, Discord and YouTube to capture Social Liquidity.
