I circulated my prototype on Reddit’s /r/graffiti today. I didnt get any upvotes, but I believe I got traffic from the site. I wasn’t able to get Google Analytics to register my new site, so I didnt get any hard numbers.
Based on my posts in /r/graffiti, I am starting to believe the audience is not inline with what I am trying to do. They are a passive photo browsing group. I am looking for a group who will actively engage with my product.
Without analytics, I do see a positive level of engagement from users. Based on the leaderboard activity, I can see that at least 8 people were using the service. Additionally, it looks like they were engaged and browsing pages.
The leaderboard shows that people have scores above 5, which means they submitted at least 5 answers and saw at least 5 images. This is a positive reflection on engagement.
