Why the wait?
They’re putting people on waitlist for ever, the enthusiasm is slowly dying out. Now I see some people trying to sell the invite codes. Is that their endgame? 🤷♂️
Come on, guys! If you let some people in on the BETA version, why discriminate against others? Is there any serious technical reason why you’re keeping some people in the dark? Apple didn’t have to know me before signing me up for their Beta updates. They don’t have to, it’s a waste of time!
If it takes more than another month for me to get the invite, then forget this.
I smell a clubhouse-like death
Remember clubhouse? They took forever to let folks in, and then it just died. Look, I get exclusivity and trying to build buzz. I get wanting to gate-keep and build a good community first. But for those of us who have faded from/quit certain social media because of the toxicity, it’s really unfair to make those looking for refuge wait. Y’all have just waited too long to let some of us in, and we are very angry. We will not be quick to (or likely may never) forgive. Bluesky could have created a better way to let folks in who aren’t connected/have lost connection. It now seems EXACTLY like clubhouse. A lot of big names and elites there (I don’t mean elite in the derogatory way it has been used in politically charged discourse. I just simply mean folks with power, pull, celebrity, connections, etc.). But y’all only seem to care about making sure they are happy. But when you finally let the rest of us normal folks in, we’ll not care. And the elites will then have lost interest/found there isn’t a way to monetize/build real engagement. And, just like clubhouse, Bluesky will die. Y’all deserve this when it comes. I’m just gonna be grateful for the geeks and developers I interact with NOW on Mastodon. I’m over waiting. Deleting this app. I will now ignore any emails, from Bluesky, about an invite. Just like I did with clubhouse when they finally got around to us lowly, everyday folks.
Is this really a beta?
So full stop I’m not a tech person. Got invited to beta test bluesky off the waitlist. While there are occasional times the feed loading gets wonky- and I’ve experienced this a handful of times in the past week- it’s also very intuitive, and it evolves while you are using it. It has been hands down the coolest social site I have ever been a part of. Remember watching Star Trek? Or your first MySpace experience? When you were like-technology really can’t be that ‘human’. Scrolling through Bluesky is that kind of experience- where you feel connected to humanity. And yes- the users are pretty legit amazing. Being a beta tester I went in there without any connection or community- and was quickly embraced by so many. If you’re lucky enough to get an invite, don’t sit on it.
