    This quote sums it up for me:

    Facebook isn't really the place I'll look for longform pieces - it exists more as a space for photos, life updates, and articles.

    I don't see the appeal of this feature for users, as Facebook is a place to get updates and life events from people you know. That being said, I am interested to see how this develops and what features we will see, as I do enjoy serious, longform posts. Instead of having your note only be viewable by 200 or so of your friends, it would be great if this Notes feature could be open to be viewable by the public. But I still don't see the appeal. Services like Medium are a great resource to blog quickly and simply and can be easily discovered by other people.

    As an English-only speaker, I personally would find it inconvenient to sort through French and English posts. That being said, since there is no specific French-Canadian tribe, then I suppose it would be fine to post French content here. Maybe if this tribe had a system where we would flag a post as [EN] or [FR], that would be more convenient.

    That's exactly how I feel and exactly how I am like too. It might be because I'm a natural lurker. I don't want to be the first one to talk or comment, but I am always happy to join in the conversation if it's already started. This is probably something I need to work on if I want to see Snapzu grow and be more conversational.

    I've done this many times with my posts and still no one comments on them. A few upvotes so I know there's interest, yet still no comments or replies.

    This is exactly what I have found. A lot of tribes act as standard news/link-aggregators. Sure, I like to read the articles once in a while, but I hardly ever comment on them. You rarely see text posts in tribes (unless of course it is text-post only). I really wish text posts would be the majority - these have always been my favourite types of communities on Reddit.

    From all the tribes I subscribe to, on average there's usually a new post once every hour to half an hour. Because of this low activity, I have very little incentive to comment on an article or visit Snapzu regularly. I will usually get 10 to 20-tops posts in the morning, and before I go to bed, another 20 or so.

    The one thing I noticed about Snapzu is that there are very little discussion-based tribes. So far, this site functions mostly as a link aggregator. You hardly see any text posts; most posts are are just links to an external article (nothing inherently wrong with that, by the way). I would love to see communities like Reddit's /r/eatcheapandhealthy or /r/running(https://www.reddit.com/r/running). These types of communities are incredibly positive and healthy, and where 95% of the submissions are text posts and 5% links to articles or other things. This is something I personally enjoy about some of Reddit's communities. I would love to see discussions posted here more often.

    Americano is my drink of choice, but when I visit a new indie shop, I like to try out their different types of coffees.
