Can you name me one more incompetent company than this? I've never seen market so ripe for victory, and yet they just can't produce a platform preferred by people, like Youtube is right there, just do what they did in terms of GUI but better, how is this so fricking hard?

        Because they're rigid and uncreative and kind of stupid?

          Is it really this simple? Because it is not hard to study your competitors and do what they did right, while improving on what they are doing wrong. The incompetency that is required to fail at this is significant. For a multibillion dollar company, I chalked it up as disinterest in users, simply taking users for granted, "they will use our service anyway, why spend money on improving it", which is typical for conservatives who only think about their bottomline

            YouTube alternatives are too expensive to attempt without a strong ideological motivator, such as being a rightoid, to blind oneself to its inherent and onvious financial doom in the current market landscape.

            Leftists typically don't violate TOS then cry & b***h about being "silenced."

            Anne Frank's family broke the law, got punished, and people are still "bitching" about it to this day. But I guess questioning and resisting authority is "rightoid".

            there have been many apolitical alternatives but the moment rightists take an interest in those services they start to suck. Curious, isn't it

      Does anybody know who bought Odysee when they were auctioned off by the SEC? I couldn't find out through online search. It's unfortunate since Odysee/LBRY is the best YouTube alternative by the metrics that are most important to me.

    the platform's clearly been a political project for a few years now. i have no idea if that was the intent when it was founded, but ever since it gained a bit of traction the platform has bent a certain way.
    a charitable interpretation is that they're trying to follow the american cable news model - i.e. they want to youtube what fox news is to other news networks. i.e. an attempt to segment and capture a market based on political preferences. i don't think that idea works because most people are going to youtube to watch 'apolitical' entertainment.

      Fox, however, improved on what its competitors were doing. They sought higher production value, more attractive hosts, "hotter" takes and so forth. Rumble is not trying to improve its UX, its functionalities, its model
      It is what Youtube is, but objectively worse, and the areas in which they're lacking are so trivial, it's infuriating. I'm talking about skip 10 seconds buttons taking years to implement and search not detecting typos (I need to use Google to find channels very often, it's not hard to detect if your query matches a popular query)
      Instead of focusing on satisfying their users, which would in turn put pressure on content creators to move (this market doesn't work the other way around), they are focusing on fighting court battles over free speech in the UK, as if the people's representatives in foreign governments shouldn't have a say in their own laws

      This company is doomed to fail, badly, because it's straight up incompetent and it's sad, because Youtube is fricking its content creators over royally, and yet they have no other good alternative. It's almost as if Rumble doesn't want to win

        imo even if they fixed their tech stack and somehow offered people more money than youtube (which imo is probably unsustainable), people would not move over because of the optics.

          >current featured on the rumble sidebar:
          The problem is that they have a "featured on he sidebar". They are pushing people they have deals with, which is bad UX. They shouldn't seek an audience that wants to watch Steve Bannon, they should seek a general audience. Bannon can be on the front page, but not occupy sidebar real estate
          >currently trending
          that's fine. few browse the trending

          Rumble would be good if the UX was better. You wouldn't mind the right wing slant, if it was user based, as long as everything else has YOU at focus and heart. Problem is the platform doesn't have you in mind, it has the content creators in mind, and like, who is supposed to watch the content creators. It's dumb that they cater to them more than the users, who are supposed to drive the platform....
