This small, handset micro-app (or seed app) will be available on the iTunes and Android store. This super light weight foundation app for RUON will provide a basic app where later versions of RUON will be updated, as app updates are released. Early adopters of this app will first be able to provide us with a testing audience for beta developments versions as we launch more updates of the RUON app. However, this seed app has a bigger purpose.
RUON seed app will have a very basic Instagram-style profile page. Users can start to upload profile page information and images, plus search for, and add followers. The app will also have one basic chat room for all users for Q&As, an explainer intro video page, email and social media login, invite page and UIG profile sign up page, as stated below.
Users will download this app and start to build their followers from as early as February 14th, 2019. The seed app will provide the foundation from which RUON’S early users can start building their followers even before the main app is launched.
How it works. Users signup using Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Users have the ability to 'invite' all their social media contacts, who will automatically be added as 'followers'.
Through a partnership with CloudSponge, users have the ability to import all their email contacts, those who accept will be added to the users 'followers'. Users will be able to differentiate and group their followers into special category groups from their profile settings. From the full list of a user’s followers, they can move followers into different groups including 'inner circle' group, 'friends' group, 'family' group, 'business' groups. When posting, users will be able to select which group will be visible to the content post or choose 'all followers' visible.
Users are awarded RUON coins ('RUONS') for the number of email imports and invites sent and accepted.
'USER INTEREST GROUPS' ('UIG').
The aim of this technology protocol is to provide RUON users a large following with like minded people on the day of main apps launch through a signup process using 'User Interest Groups' ('UIG'). The aim will be for every new user to have at least 10,000 - 50,000 followers on day one of the main app launch. After inviting all their social media contacts, linked business contacts and email contacts then we rech 'User Interest Groups' ('UIG'). A user will be given the option to select 5 main interests from a list provided. The list will include groups like: Leisure, Holidays, Members’ Clubs, Internet, Movies, Sports, Fashion, Technology, Gaming, TV, Reading, Cooking, Romance. Each of these core interest groups when selected will have more niche subgroups with the main core group i.e the reading group split up into: hardbacks, romance, book signing, book groups, amazon books, top sellers, action/thrillers, mystery, adult themed, bedtime reading, blogs/articles, technology reading, spacetime readings, cookbooks, news reading, jokes/humor, business interests, TED articles, research and - add your own subcategory. As millions of pre-registered users signup to RUON, these interest groups will fill up with thousands of users joining these niche groups. Not only will this provide a powerful categorized targeted advertising tool, but RUON users will have every user within each niche interest group as a follower from the launch.
For example, John Doe signs up and chooses these five User Interest Groups ('UIG') which best relate and identify him. movies > Sci-fi (12,302 followers), Gaming > Command & Conquer (450 followers), Food > Hamburgers (1,055 followers), Sports > College football ( 4,539 followers) and Shopping > Shopify (40,320 followers). RUON SEED app and pre-registration technology will add all these people in his similar niche interest groups as his followers. The unique feature is that due to the fact there are so many interest groups and subgroups to choose from we know that the final interest groups he chooses are his most important interests out of all others. When RUON goes live John Doe will have a total of 7,000 followers who like and are interested in the very same thing he is interested in. This will be relevant when he decides to open his store or news channel as it’s very likely that he will choose a similar interest and therefore already have a built in audience of like-minded and interested followers sharing his interests. If John decided to create a news channel, TV channel or dedicated store which is not associated to one of his original interest groups well, for extra RUONs he can pay to add a related unique interest group (and all its followers) from selecting related groups within his settings. This provides a powerful way to instantly attain followers with like minded interests to your profile and services and store pages. As above, once an interest group has been added to your page with all their followers, users can easily go down and categorize each follower into friends, family, business contacts, leads and followers. When joining a UIG, users can elect if they want to be added to other peoples profiles via the UIG protocol, they can also elect if they want to receive notifications to accept a group follower request from one of the groups. No user is added to follow another user without the request being accepted or permission requested when joining the group.
RUON will work with Surkus and InstaBrand to get influencers to promote the RUON micro app across influencers channels, and market downloads across all social media channels. PPC advertising will come into effect with explainer videos on how RUON and the SEED app works, explaining to users that they can now earn real money from all their social media post by signing up to use RUON. The RUON seed app will have full videos and a working frontend prototype within the app so users can see exactly how it works.
RUON seed app is updated with user chat rooms and a Q&A room. Every interest group or UIG has its own chat room on RUON. Users can also create their own chat rooms to build their followers prior to launch. If a user hosts a chat room they can then automatically add all these chat room users as followers within their chat room admin settings area.
Downloads estimate: 250,000
RUON will update the app with a detailed Dating and Romance profile section. Just like the User Interest Groups 'UIG' RUON will provide 5 key interests and categories users look for when seeking their perfect match. i.e. Users can choose blonde, tall, athletic and a handful of interests. The best thing of all, users can then add these niche group attributes to their profile and if their followers accept the request have thousands of their perfect type follow them.
RUON's Beta version will update on the seed foundation app. By this time, there should be a large user group already using the seed app for vigorous beta testing.
RUON will release its API's for all developers to start working and building bots, add-ons, advanced features and open source code, pages and services adding to the RUON developer community.
