I feel very passionate about the way we’ve adapted to the explosion of social networks in terms of identity. Usernames are not universal and users of any/all platforms have reacted by displaying a string of icons on their sites/email signatures, etc. It’s become so messy to me. High profile users often fall victim to fake accounts. It’s sometimes difficult to know which accounts are the “official” ones for entities (individuals and organizations alike, regular and celebrity)… I’m creating a directory for usernames. One that relies on OAuth verification to ensure they’re all related to the same entity. It’s meant to be a reliable reference. Not a social network - does not pull in content feeds… it’s just about the usernames. It’s also not a personal homepage or portfolio. It functions like an online directory.
It’s almost ready to go live - I’ll definitely be posting here when it is since I built it fully on Bubble and am very proud of it.
Also - this isn’t based off an algorithm. It’s purely user generated. Obviously the more users who join, the more useful it is.
