Gab.ai is probably the most popular, functional alternative social media site out there. Gab has a lot of potential to compete with big tech companies like Twitter and I can’t help but feel hopeful for the future of the site. I’ve been more active on gab lately than ever. Follow me if you haven’t already. While using the site I can’t help but think of improvements and features that could be added.
A photo album
Similar to instagram and facebook, having a photo album where we can save the pictures on our profile for others to see would be pretty awesome. Perhaps this could be similar to twitters “media” option on the profile. There are some memes and pictures I want to share that I know instagram won’t like. With instagram cracking down on “problematic” users, it would be a shame if all the beautiful pictures and memes got lost in cyberspace forever.
Similar to what Tweetdeck offers, having the option to queue posts for later would allow those who have busy lives to keep their gab profiles active while they’re away living their lives.
Gifting Gab Pro
Reddit allows users to gift Reddit gold to each other, and it has been very profitable for them. Gifting Gab Pro would give an incentive for people to donate to gab and make other gab users happy.
Hosting official contests will encourage more people to be active and get competitive! These contests should be once a month at least so even the busiest people can find time to participate. A meme contest, photoshop contest, or video contest would be pretty awesome! The reward could be a piece of gab merch, or gab pro for a month, or a little trophy on your gab profile.
