Social Networking Solution Case Study

 

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The client wanted to create a scalable Social Forum Application on Android Platform. The idea was to develop a mobile application which would be a forum for people to login, post their questions, get answers from other users and also answer the questions posted by other users of the application. The questions as well as the answers can have images, videos, text, audios, etc. For every action, say registration of his account, the user would get a virtual coin. But one would lose a coin for posting a question. This app required a web based backend admin panel, from where the administrator of the application can control and manage the whole app including all the image and video posts.

BUSINESS EXPECTATION

To Increase business revenue by sale of coins to users who need to ask questions through Social Forum Application.
