This is kind of funny, but I was going to email Prose with this idea I have. What would make Prose a bit better than it is - audio communication during private messages.
It’s one thing to write a story or poem and have people read them but communication via spoken word said and heard, at least in messages would be an added plus and an extremely good feature. Of course, it could/should come with an option to use this feature on both sides of the aisle. Opt in or Opt Out. After all, everything is about choices made.
But it allows Proser’s to put a voice to a member, one who writes and writes well - or not so well. After all, this is a community of writer’s who express what is deep down to their very core.
We all come from different backgrounds, different cultures, beliefs and so forth. Audio cimmunication would also give us a better sense of who and what the Proser is about. There are people from around the world here with stories and emotions to express. Another way to do this is through audio. It saves time in typing, speeds up the issues and can make for a more enjoyable outcome for both sides.
Another aspect of audio, there is a Portal called “Spoken Word”. Make that portal audio as well where only spoken poetry or stories are left for the “listener”to hear; although I don’t know how much bandwith would be used.
This now gives Prose two options to work with and hope to see this happen. I have looked into what is called “voice centric” social networking. The long and the short of this is you are allowed around 40-50 second voice recordings. One can say a lot in that amount of time.
The pandemic has changed the way we communicate with people and voice centric style communication is a key element. In many respects, it is no different than Skype except for no visual communication. But people communicate via audio practically every day. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are but a few places that uses this kind of technology.
So, yeah, let’s join the big boys and be part of the next generation to follow.
