Some Unusal Features
Text Area (Ckeditor) in Comment Section Instead of a Text Box for Comment Section , a Text Area has been included which allows user not only to upload media files but also other files. I tried Uploading a php file and BOOM a Success message was Flashed.
There is Slide Show Section above the Top of the Body part.Except in the profile page , the carousel appears in every page.Possibly the Carousel is for the Advertisers Across the Platform.Currently the Logo and Advertisement Slides of NTC runs in that section.
Comment and Status Once Posted cannot be Edited or Deleted.
User won’t be able to Know who Liked their Status.
Some Reviews About Meet On Meet itself.
Yes, so many flaws left. They need to rectify them before the official launch. Also UI/UX need to be improved in regular basis like FB did , If meet wants to compete with FB.
This Meet should use professional engine if it is actually want to b professional. Status cant b deleted, couldnot see who liked the status., chat doesnt work, web sms not available in app., always need to log in even not logged out, very poor interface design, and there are many other problems. Not good site with very poor security.
It is too early to Judge Whether the new Social Media By Telecom Giant NTC is Ambitious or Ambiguous . We Let Our Readers to decide it 🙂
