X: Constant improvements to communities to attract more users
The community su X I am public and all users can see the post. However, to comment or post a reaction, you need to make one. If users want to interact with a community post sent by members to their followers, they can only quote it. It is unclear whether the social network will give community administrators the ability to block sharing of posts published with users’ followers. However, this is not the only innovation recently introduced by X. In recent months, Elon Musk’s platform has introduced some improvements to the communities and added new features, to be able to compete with Reddit e Facebook.
Last October, X launched a feature gatekeeping which allowed administrators of private communities to ask users to answer some questions before joining. Based on the answers to these questions, administrators can allow or deny access to applicants. Until now, X limits community creation to account Premium. However, also in October, X extended this functionality to users in Japan. X aims to create a more engaging and competitive social experience. With this move will it be able to make communities more attractive for its users?
