As developers we need to access people's personal information in order to create powerful social experiences. The thing is, that many of us are losing 5 out of 10 potential users because people, who are concerned about privacy, hesitate to click the connect button.
In this talk we’ll discuss the current barriers developers face when requesting permissions to access people’s personal information and how to overcome those barriers and build truly powerful social apps based on trust and transparency.
We’ll try to answer the following questions:
- Why did we lose the trust of users in the past few years?
- Are we, as a developers, currently respecting our users?
- What can we do to build trust and get ready for the next generation of trust based social apps?
- Why are we dependent on each other and how each of us affects the future of our whole industry?
