Am a huge fan of Nairaland, I have been a member since 08, That’s almost 10years ago.
This morning I read a topic on Radar where Nairaland was mentioned the I asked myself "Why aren’t you using Nairaland anymore? ", This seem somehow because I read Digests like hell, Especially when am in Lagos traffic.
Here are the things that I think helped other forums that Nairaland doesn’t have in place.
Digests: Personally I read all my digests because I don’t have time to be scrolling across any website for the latest updates.
Design: normally forums are well known to look ancient, So many people has asked designers to leave Sun alone but I think a little twist will be fine.
Mobile App : Nairaland doesn’t promote it’s mobile app on the website not even on their footer. - I have no comments on this.
Features : I use Digital point forum on that forum you can remain on the same page and track your websites pageviews, Earnings, and Payments all at once. Nairaland doesn’t have a single Facebook like Button. - I mean even Google is having a hard time by not being straight with Facebook in the first place. FYI- They need Facebook data to give their users quality contents like Microsoft and twitter did .
Even Radar has better features than Nairaland (I stand to be corrected).
