Twitter is a microblogging social networking site that has reaped over 332 million active users as of 2015. It has taken the world by giving it an additive platform and feature swags for social interaction and information exchange. Be it your role model or just the guy next door, you can find everybody on Twitter.
The users on Twitter can write short posts of 140 characters, famously known as ‘Tweet’ while others can like, comment and retweet the post in order to give credit. To be an active part of the social streaming world, the user should follow and be followed on Twitter, the higher the number is on either side (followers & followings), the more involved you are on the social rampage.
That’s not all, the Hashtags (#) used in the tweets are the best way to search for public opinions and ideas in related topic mentioned on Twitter, undoubtedly useful to the society at large.
Twitter being the diversified platform, has around 350,000 tweets swarming in every minute, that’s a lot of information! In order to be a part of the pep rally on Twitter, users have to put up with flooding social noises and frenzy distraction. With Twitter, it is nearly impossible to escape the massive information clutter.
However, it is undeniable that Twitter has several well-versed features that can connect people at any levels. If only there was a way to insulate the nifty environment from the trivialities.
One of the few ways is having a social networking site that is confined to a particular circle. You can use Radar, a Twitter Clone Script to create a self-hosted, closed social network for all most everything.
We suggest an Alumni Network, to reunite your old friends from back in times. A platform only for the alumni of your school and college to be in touch and talk over the reminiscences, they are going to love it!
With Radar, we have created Twitter like interactive platform without any disruptions by the outer world.
You can ‘Blip’ about memorable and funny past event with pictures, while others can ‘favorite’ the posts, ‘Echo’ or comment on the posts. Use Hashtags and @username to mention the user in your posts and comments. You can follow your batch mates, seniors and juniors, probably your professors too. Through this missing link, you can get feeds on what your friends and acquaintances are up to recently. Also send personal messages to your mates through ‘Ping’.
You will be surprised to see how the platform could come to your rescue in numerous other ways. For instance, if you looking for a job change or other opportunities, you can ask alumni for the recommendations. You can discuss and seek suggestion on work related ideas or even issues. You can start a sideline business with your alumni friends. Alumni, who are entrepreneurs can interact and meet each other’s business requirements.
Or let’s say, when you move to the new city where you don’t have friends, alumni can get you connected with their friends and acquaintance residing nearby, who could help you out in the new place. You can also share your recreational interests like sports, movies or arts, plan events likes small togethers and reunion.
And if your children want to get into the same alma mater, who else can help you better than the alumni themselves.
Since every venture must have a good monetization model, here are some idea to bring in decent capital from the product. You can set a membership cost for users to use the platform, alumni will be absolutely fine paying a minimal price to stay connected. This model works for most of the private social networks. Or you can float various advertisements and convert the existing visitors into a source of revenue, which proves to be a beneficial step to generate money for all the websites.
