    -Logging in with the username should be possible; it’s more convenient.
    -It might be possible to add a cover image when sharing the main page index.
    -User suggestions (show users with at least one image in their profile and recent activity).
    -Hashtags (Following a hashtag seems almost unnecessary; those displayed have little activity and no posts.) It should adopt and improve the TikTok algorithm.
    -“Discovery” lacks activity, and what’s visible is stagnant and not dynamic. It should be like TikTok’s “For You,” showing fresh and popular content. Discovery should be unique for each user, displaying new popular content based on interests.

    So far, I see significant improvements that have been made. This is one of the best scripts I’ve encountered, and I appreciate the progress it’s making. Perhaps it could be stylized a bit more to look even more professional. Without a doubt, it’s a script with great potential. Nowadays, many people have given up on finding a good script for building their social media platforms. This one shows promise, although there might be some details to polish.

    I agree with the statement in principle. I have had social media sites in the past from several creators. Being honest, i found them all to be lacking in ambition. I also requested and promoted the idea of a ShaunSocial style site for 4 years with 3 of the top creative companies and got nowhere. searched for 3 years for a script like ShaunSocial. I used to have Moosocial aslo and when shaunsocial was released i swapped over and have not regretted it .

    ShaunSocial is original, small, dynamic in its own way and yes there are always things that can be improved. To do this all site admins need to play our part in embracing SocialLoft (shaunsocial) and help with ideas and direction.

    As far as discovery, i find that it is the users/members that make a site dynamic and exciting. (example: if members post normal insignificant posts or comments the site looks not interesting and not dynamic) So admin has to encourage excitement and drive dynamic posts. Admin can do this by creating dynamic posts and content to encourage members. Other sites do this by employing influencers / promoters and algorithms to promote certain posts and influence a members choice of what to follow or view and create feedback and posts of a similar content. and so creating trends.

    Those of us that dont have $$$$$ in the bank have to think different and be the influencer / promoter and create our own dynamic content and encourage members.

    To be honest, ive been on most other sites like twitter, insta, FB, WA and honestly, i find that most of all trends are not by the normal member, but by paid influencers and promotors and algorithms. most of the content i think to myself is Trash and garbage, and it is only made a trend because posts are pushed on to members to view and just because it auto plays like a video, it classes it as a viewer choice and a trend is created so other people look at it and the trend gets bigger. I mean… how funny is a cat falling into a box after 3, 6, 10 or 100 times of seeing it.
    Trends arent trends because the content is funny, Its a trend because the algorithms post it to all members and so the fake viewing count increases until it gets to the “golden number” (about a 1/4 to a third of the sites population) then people share it and the trend is created.



    Thanks Mikel, we already have plan to improve the Discovery section to make it more dynamic in next version 1.1. Thanks again for your very nice contributions so far.
