Objective: Conceptualize a new social community platform online.
ViewTalent is a social community platform that connects people around the world through different skills, entertainment and competition. It aims to provide people the opportunity to show off their capability of doing and making things using their amazing skills. Sharing their thought on how some skills are done and challenging others to see the best of the best.
The idea came from different shows released in Hong Kong recently that focus on challenging people’s skill on something.
One of the shows is “Minute to Win It” which is released in America in 2010. The contestants participating will have a countdown of 60 seconds where they perform challenges that use objects commonly found around the house. It is like other money game shows where the participants bring prizes and money home. The show gained popularity and now it is played internationally.
Another show “The Showoff Show” premiered in Hong Kong this year. The contestant challenges on other contestant something they are talented upon and show off who has the best trick. Interesting enough, it gives audience the chance to understand the world of challenging skills these contestants provides.
Are you good at something? Show and tell! Everyone have their own skillset on making and doing things. Some people are really good at something, some people are really bad. This platform let people share their skillsets with their friends, family and the world. The world has a lot of crazy people that can do crazy stuff but they really need to show it to the world and see if anyone can beat their record. Some people don’t even know they had such skill and the platform provides ways of discover their own skills. Let people show off what they are best at doing.
People can challenge their limits of impossibility. It will become the main feature where users can challenge different people to do a particular skill. For example, stacking five eggs on top of each other in one minute will be the challenge. The user will be able to gain rewards and rankings in their profile.
How it works?
The platform will be based on a social network website featuring profiles to form different connections in the world. A list of categories of different skills will be set and organized so users can navigate easily. Users can request new categories if they find something that are particular different in a way. Under each category, there are postings of the different skills by all users. There is some options they can do like giving a comment, like it, share it or challenge the individual. The website will automatically sort which categories you like the best and updates the newest posts from friends. To post, the user can select photos or videos and organize it into different steps. This is useful if they want to teach other users something. Under the challenge category, in order for the skill to be true meaning no editing allowed, a feature on the website will record the challenge instantly and upload it to the web.
This platform will be particularly attracting to teenagers who is still finding their way in life and likes to accept challenges so they can show off to their friends.
