LiveCode presence on Quora

Post by CrisRich » Sat Sep 30, 2017 1:29 pm

I receive many messages from LiveCode sales offering different types of subscriptions. I'm OK with that but have the impression that LiveCode is in need of many more users than it has now, so they are trying out different models.

I also receive digest messages from Quora every day and notice that many people ask about what's the best program to use or to learn if someone is a beginner or wants to create apps and so on. And I noticed that LiveCode has 0/Zero presence on Quora. Why is that?

So I wanted to recommend to the LiveCode managers to also use Quora as a strong marketing tool.

What do you think?

Not sure what you mean by "zero presence" ? Typing livecode into quora's searchbar does bring up actual livecode related questions...
...and they have a section on Stack Overflow as well.

Social media is vast.

In addition to Quora there's the Facebook group:

...and the less active G+ group: ... 0269230218

...and the largest LC group in social media, on LinkedIn:

...and LC Q&A on Stack Overflow: ... ageSize=50

...and the LiveCode sub-Reddit:

...and the Gitter discussion:

...and various groups for non-English speakers, like:

LiveCode Latino America

LiveCode Italia:!forum/livecode-italia

...and many in-person meetups:

...and of course the company-sponsored venues, like this forum and the user-livecode discussion list:

...and those are just the ones I happen recall off the top of my head. I'm sure there are more.

As we see with much of social media, most of those are organically community-driven. The company sponsors a few venues like this one, but the scope of all possible online venues for discussion is too vast for them to manage them all. And thankfully they don't need to: social media sites are relevant when they're where things naturally happen. LiveCode discussions appear wherever LiveCode developers want them to.

If you'd like to see more discussion on Quora, make it so. It would indeed be nice to see more there too.
