What's the best platform to find ideas for building things that people actually want/need?

I've seen several Tweets where folks ask for a product/service that doesn't exist yet. Is there any platform listing "Requests for Startups" that have been validated by a real audience?

    Share and discover great startup ideas people actually want

    Here's a project that scrapes Twitter for startup ideas; however, I'm not sure this is the best place to look for inspiration. Instead I might try to solve problems you experience in your life or try to identify a pattern of inefficiencies that you might be able to improve upon (e.g. Taxi --> Uber).

    I think PH is one of the best places to hunt for Product Ideas. I am not saying to exactly copy what others are doing, but just tweak a bit or take inspiration & create something unique, innovative & better. For example: "News in Shorts" keeps your updated by sharing a news in just 60 words. You can come up with something similar, like, News for Cricket lovers in max 100 words or 50 words, or whatever. Hope it helps :)

      Product Hunt 4.0 is the best that has happened to Product Hunt yet. Easily one of my most favorite websites these days, and I see myself coming back daily to maintain my streak. I am at a 20 day streak now and I hope to see badges evolve with daily streaks - some sort of perks for people coming more often?

      This update is super useful for people deciding whether or not to use a product. Sometime you want to do a deep dive into a product before deciding whether or not to use it.

      The "😻 reviews" feature, as well as the "πŸ”— Around the Web" section makes this deep dive super easy.
