    I have an idea for a social media app that could actually be a big thing if done correctly

    I'm a CS student so It's not random to have projects like this

    But it's a SOCIAL media app. You don't get to a successful sm app without people actually using it.

    How do you get people to start using your app? Do you have to start with fake users so that the "first" user won't be the only one using the app?

    How do you get funding? One man can't build a successful cross platform app for masses. Of course I could (and will) try to create a draft, an MVP. But there comes the time when I need more help and nothing is free.

    How does all of this work?

    build it first

    Okay but the first thing I mentioned

    If I build a social media app that requires a lot of traffic to be useful and I'm the only one using it than it's not gonna take off

    Let's forget for a sec I'm talking about my project

    How do social media apps take off in general?

    Instagram would suck if it was only 5 people posting there
    Twitter would suck if it was Jack Dorsey and friends tweeting

    i mean twitter did suck back in 2007 before people were on it lol

    social media takes off because of network effects. they start with 2 people, then 4, then 16, 256, etc.

    just put something together. there's industry events and incumbators like Y combinator that introduce people to investors. tech bro investors love to throw money around

    True

    Start with myself
    Introduce it to my friends and go from there

    But you're right first I gotta have a product people would like to use
