Our soft launch is in February 2022.
During the soft launch, you can:
- Get used to the platform, and provide any feedback before launch.
- Invite other Experts/Professionals that you feel would be a great fit for this platform (thanks a lot for that!). It benefits the Community, but also directly benefits you (see RNE below).
- Invite friends, family, and colleagues, so they can be the first set of Users to get familiar with the platform, secure their handle, etc. We will let them in over the course of the soft launch (slightly after you), and conduct a few sample chats they can attend.
- Upload new or repurposed content to your profile, so that when people join, they can view your content, engage with you, and follow you.
- Schedule audio-chats that you want to run at launch.
Our full launch is in February 2022.
Yes! Those in by February get boosted/promoted during launch. Much like other networks, the earlier you join, the more engaging content you have, the more you invite others, the more you grow and your message can be shared to more people.
If you know someone who would be a great fit, please feel free to share the following link: goodself.com/experts. They can view a brief video around how the platform works, sign up to be part of our launch and/or join a brief info session to learn more.
During the soft launch (thanks for that!).
Not at launch, but it is a feature we will develop over time!
Users will discover Expert’s profiles, like yours, as they interact with and rate similar content! Feeds are tailored to user’s interests and engagements, connecting them to the profiles, live chats, and other content they will find the most helpful.
Every user on the platform can attend live chats, interact with profiles, and rate content. As a vetted Expert, you are recognized as a credible source, granted exclusive access to host live chats, and are able to sell your products on our marketplace (coming soon)! Experts can only upload content within the category they are vetted in.
All multimedia formats are accepted on the platform, including but not limited to: audio, text posts, pictures, short clips, and long form video uploads.
Yes! You can re-purpose your own content from any other platform of your choosing. Obviously, we’d love to have exclusive content, and that would help increase your engagement and following even further; but that is completely up to you when you would choose to do that.
Experts will be identified with a halo icon and their professional title, as pictured below.
Your Expert-status profile page contains your name, professional title, education, and a short bio to introduce yourself. You can also include a link to your website or other relevant social media presence.
Yes. you can store your content in different folders/playlists!
Every piece of content posted on the platform can be rated — a rating breakdown will display the contribution from both Users and Experts. As content is positively rated, it will appear on more feeds and gain exposure. Posts that fall below a certain rating threshold will be removed, to optimize the user experience.
Experts will be vetted based on one category. Any other areas of specialty can be included on posts through hashtags for the rest of the specialties.
- Alternative Medicine
- Chronic Disorders
- Chiropractic Care
- Dermatology & Aging
- Immune Disorders
- Meditation & Yoga
- Mental Health
- Motivation & Support
- Musculoskeletal Disorders
- Neurological Disorders
- Physical Rehabilitation
- Pregnancy & Parenting
- Reproductive Health
Your feed is made up of Live audio chats, photos, videos and text posts. These come from People you follow, Experts in Categories you follow and suggested topics of interest. Everything is presented in order of relevancy!
The main timeline that users see is not in chronological order. Rather, content will be shown in order if what is most to least helpful for you. Through an analysis of engagement, we will determine what posts are more suited for the user, and will show them first. We take into consideration the Users, Experts, hashtags and categories that are followed to determine how content will be shown.
Live chats create a space for Experts and users to engage in meaningful conversation and interact with their communities. Live chats can take the form of info sessions, Q&As, panels, and more.
Live chats can be easily scheduled ahead of time or started immediately. Your followers can view your next scheduled event and will be notified when one begins.
Experts have the ability to invite people to speak, mute speakers, assign individuals as moderators, and shut down a room. They can also leave a chat if an additional moderator is present. Moderators allow for an easier flow between User and Expert, managing Q&A, etc. However, chats do not need a moderator, and many chats we envision being moderated by the speaker themselves.
Through an application process, Experts are put through an application process that vets and reviews necessary qualifications that are relevant to the applicant’s area of expertise.
Yes! Within the app's settings, you can apply for Expert status if you feel that you have qualifications that meet our minimum qualifications. Users can email us to apply.
How would I know if someone is verified? How do users know what is a quality or “vetted” post or influencer?
Expert profiles will be identified with a halo icon and their professional title, and will be reflected in their posts. This halo determines whether a user is a qualified Expert. In terms of post quality, ratings are assigned to posts based on other Experts’ or users' opinions.
Every user on the platform can attend live chats, interact with profiles, and rate content. Vetted Experts are recognized as reliable sources, granted exclusive access to host live chats, and are able to sell products on our marketplace (coming soon)! Experts can only upload content within the category they are vetted in.
What is different about this app vs other social media apps and Experts on there? Why do we need a Health and Wellness platform?
This app aims to be a healthy social media platform for people that are looking for health, wellness and lifestyle information! We are building a community that makes it easier to find the right set of Experts, information and people that can help you with your health and wellness, while cutting through the clutter and the noise.
On Goodself, you can invite your community to our platform, so they can meet like-minded people and share their own experiences. Anyone that follows them, will also be encouraged to follow you, helping you grow your base. You’ll grow exponentially, capturing more like-minded people with a similar interest, as the platform organically grows. That’s the RNE Effect!
No! We will not require you to make any payments to use our platform. We are a free social media platform focused on health, wellness and lifestyle. We are building a community of like-minded individuals to provide support, help, and information to our users. All users will be able to view live content, talk to Experts, see posts and more for free!
Yes, we do need the two to be able to verify your account. We will need your number and email to verify and log you in to the account or in case you need to change your phone number. We will not use your phone number or email for any other circumstances unless permission is given.
We are currently only offering access to this app for individuals who are 18+.
