    Engagement in social networks is moving away from a broadcast mechanism to more private sharing. It's important to support both chat and feeds.

      We might build this in as our main chat functionality for our community based electric vehicle sharing platform launching later this year. Assuming there will be a lot of chatting so this is great. Thanks for building it! #techstars

    • We are working with stream on this now and other streams for over a year now. We are loving it! It looks like they are launching with a higher and better product from competition in the get go and as I know them it will keep improving

      I've been using the Serverless framework for over two years, starting back when it was still named JAWS, in pet projects (online chess microservice), side projects (a mobile app's backend), proof of concepts, and two SaaS products. All but one where deployed on AWS. It works great.

    For social networks you typically have a ton of images. Resizing them on the fly with a proxy like imgix gives your development/design team a lot of freedom.

    By far the easiest payment gateway. I'd use this to process payments for ads, boosted posts, etc.
