# What is the type of your platform?

# For which community you develop this platform?

# What is the purpose of your platform?

These are the general questions which have occurred during the first stage when you decide the functionality of your project. If you already scan your opponent so can easily find the core functionality of a project and if we talk about the unique features you can also find out it from our competitors. Every person develop a new platform because older have some problems. So, find out that error, search their answers and put the solutions in your portal.

4. Technology: - Identification, Research, and functionality are used to define only a basic structure of your social networking app and after that, you can easily find out some technical companies which are expert in that stream for development but the most important part is technology. Not only the technology but Right Technology which helps to stand out your social networking site to next level. Technology evaluation is a tough task. Every technology has their own pros and cons, so which one is suitable for your platform and answer is given by only professional, who gives you the right idea for your platform.

A success of a software depends on it users who use that and a user are the only one gives you the right information about the platform. A great owner-customer relationship also helps to build a good image in the market. So customer relationship is the most important point. The second point is security. Data security is the only point which helps shows your clean image in the market. If you save user data so it's your responsibility to protect it and the last point is scalability.
