Content You Create Needs Your Attention
So, you wrote a Comment. And that's your Content. Yes, you commented on someone else's article, video or social media post. But your comment is your own private property. When users comment on a topic, the creator of that post learns new concepts.
And these concepts have the power to become a video, an article and even a full-fledged business idea.
Thus, the text we type and the photos we capture are important. And even if you do not write a blog, you need to keep a record of your creativity.
Why? Because the ideas you record today might help you and others, on some another day.
Value of Your UGC or User Generated Content
I write blog posts, articles and newsletters. And many creators are active on social media, podcasts and video streaming platforms. So, how much content can you create in one day?
Do you see now? After all, everyone has the same time budget for the day.
Some creators have daytime jobs. Yet, others might be full-time creative professionals. And it is not just the tips, subscriptions, donations or commissions that matter to them. For many creators, the ideas and opinions coming from their readers are priceless as well.
In fact, a creative person can come up with new content ideas by sitting, observing or scrolling through your comments.
User Engagement Metrics? What are these performance goals?
As you know, every commercial email has some basic trackers. And through them, the content creators learn if you open their emails. Or, did you leave without reading the email copy? So, your likes and comments used to have a numerical weight a few years ago.
But now, you are aware of the social media handles with fake or superficial followers.
Thus, the number of comments is less important than the quality of comments. And the number of likes is not as important as a more active interaction. Of course, the likes and shares can become "passive" if you spend too much time on social media... and keep scrolling without thinking.
In the age of Comment-less Web | Prelude
Have you noticed that websites are removing the ability to comment on the posts? Well, the comment sections are not the most civilised corners of the web. Nobody needs any explanation for that, right? Still, you can encounter priceless comments on some sites.
In the future, I will discuss the various perspective regarding the comment section.
