Open discussion on the best format to interact between users.
We want to add discussions, conversations between the followers of a channel. We have the following options :
People comment on a specific posts mostly like facebook, twitter, instagram.. Comments are hidden within the posts, and specific to a post in a feed. The issue with comments is that older posts comments are difficult to access.
People talk in a general chat for the channel with a simple conversation interface. The issue with chat is that it can get messy very fast.
People open discussions on a specific topic, they can invite people from the channel and it appears on the feed. Like Reddit, Quora. The issue with discussion is a heavier process with opening a discussion, setting a topic and eventually invite people to talk about the topic.
We would like to have your thoughts about this important feature.
