The growth trap

 One product I really like is Moov. The idea is amazing, but now when I checked their app store and social media, they seem to be abandoned.

No new posts since 2018 and no new app updates for over 2 years. What does it mean for me as a user?

My confidence in this product is shaken. Would there be an adequate support? Will I receive new updates?

Another great product I enjoy is TypeMatrix. They seemed to share the same social media silence.

How come good products gave up on being noticeable?

Posting is for free, but people judge your products by the amount of engagement you have.

Maybe they had created their tribe of fans buying their services and they don't need additional market share? I doubt it.

Companies are hurt when they lack UX Content Strategy. And this is something we can all take away.

You might have the best product or service, but if you are unable to promote it daily and reach out to your target customers, it will be very hard for you to be successful!

To forget is the ultimate sign of lack of focus. You need to focus on what you do to be able to achieve the next level.

Twitter is a dead long live twitter

 Corporate rebranding takes time. It is carefully calibrated and represents the new directions of the company. Unless it is Twitter. Then the change can happen in a matter of a week. The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
