Hey, I want to create a social site with discourse
I don’t want to create a social site like facebook because it’s not possible.
But, I want to create a community of fan following means let’s say “Rock” fan following. I will invite all rock followers to discuss on community.
This is just an example because I want to create multiple category for everyone.
Is it possible. I know it’s possible because I am using discourse on already two my community.
But, those community are not social.
ohh, hard to explain. May be some of you definitely understand what I want to say.
It may be a dumbed idea but I am thinking about implementing this strategy.
What you think and what should I use for the implementation of this idea.
We’re going to need a bit more information on what you’re trying to achieve here. I’m with @8BIT on his comments. Discourse is meant for discussions. There’s no following, friendships or anything as such. People can like topics, discuss on topics and share content, media.
Reddit also isn’t discussion, but rather “submit video or picture or link and comment on it”. The difference is not subtle. Any “discussion” that is dynamically reordered by votes is not really a discussion in the traditional dictionary sense of the word any longer.
It seems to me that the following material is interesting in this topic. Social networks, communities. Sometimes it’s functional. Discourse is more of a community than a social network. . And it’s great!
