Social apps allow users to interact and communicate with each other in a variety of different forms. These apps are popular, and usage is only increasing—nurtured further by Covid-19—making these necessary communication tools to stay in contact. Mobile users now spend at least 50% of their total time using these apps, and 91% of social media users access social channels using their mobiles devices.
Like any industry, building and developing social apps requires several must-have features. They need to allow users to post updates, comment and like posts, share their profiles, and other social media integration is key. Notifications, news feeds, and customizable profiles are popular, as is the ability to chat with others in the network. It’s really about allowing users to create content so they can interact with each other.
