The Broad Stage

Stage 1

From the start, VSCO’s co-founders very intentionally didn’t include public likes or comments as part of the photo sharing experience, differentiating them from existing social platforms to date. Instead, VSCO is focused on letting users be human and create honestly, and part of that is limiting the pressure that comes with traditional social media channels. Joel can discuss how to successfully build the next generation social platform – one which focuses on the below ideas rather than public likes and comments: celebrating creativity, quality over quantity, valuing the details and process behind content vs. more consumable content, and the power of photographs to change perspectives.
