How to create your own social media app?
You’ll have to be more specific…is your question about the coding, the marketing, finding a niche to fill?
the coding --------------
like any project you need to plan it out. A social media app is a big thing that does numerous tasks and functions. Start with something small, like a blog or a tweet app. Just 1 user that can update posts.
Then add a functions like these
-add new users
-invite users as friedns
-accept users as friends
-view friends updates.
That would be a start. each one of these might take you a few hours to a fwe days to write depending on how skilled you are. Or do it as a group with others and you can each program a feature and get it done faster.
Since you are asking question about the coding part:
- Design your database structure. let’s assume there will be a User class, a Post class, and a Comment class.
- Write a web server in the language of your choice that exposes different API endpoints to your frontend application. Design routes with functionalities like add friends, view friends, view all posts per userid, etc.
- Deploy your database, server and frontend
Depends. Are you doing it because you want to learn, or do you really want to make a new social network? If you want to do it to learn about developing apps, then you have good answers here. If it’s the other reason, it’s better to not reinvent the wheel (unless you have a team, a budget, etc) so use some open source social network system and start from there.
CRUD, relational db’s, backend, ajax google it.
