Hi John! What's it like not only having your name, but a 4 letter twitter? What's your social media journey been like? Also, what's your favorite board game? 🙌

john shahidi@john · Co-Creator of Shots Studios
@jsneedles Having my name on social media is a funny conversation starter / icebreaker. I got the name back in 2009 and really wanted it because I knew from day 1 that I would love the Twitter product. I still do.

john shahidi@john · Co-Creator of Shots Studios
@shotscrewbr Sam is obsessed with both robots and bots and showed me the icon for a bots section coming to our messenger section. I loved it and said, let's change the entire icon just for the heck of it. That's why we made this video -- it was all Sam (Shahidi)

john, first off, i wanted to thank you for making such an incredible app. i have been a victim of bullying from elementary school, straight on to highschool, and then online. i really hope one day we could just go for coffee and talk ! but on the subject of shots, quick top 3 questions: 1)what has been your favorite part of creating the app ? 2) what are your favorite past times (when not working your butt off!) 3) would you please be my friend on shots, i have a message i'd really like to deliver to you and we should be best friends <3 (SHOTS ID: sabrinaashley) all my love, sabrina. keep empowering, keep smiling, and thank you. (for all you do)

@witchhsabrina Hey, I am sorry you've been through that. I gave a bit of advice in the BuzzFeed interview today that is better to hear out than to read http://on.fb.me/1Qoamnc. I said it about 1/2 way through the interview. 1. I love coming into the office. Everyone here is as excited as I am about what we're creating so that energy combined is something that I love and crave when I am not here. 2. I went to high school in Mission Viejo and I have some great memories from HS and those friends are some of my best friends still. 3. Just added you.

Nik Sharma
Nik Sharma@mrsharma · Director of Performance Marketing, hint
Hi John, thanks for doing the chat & appreciate the follow on Twitter, too! My question is: Why do you think YOUR influencer marketing (and mainly with Justin Bieber, King Bach, and Floyd Mayweather), was able to out-perform TIDAL so much? They not only had Jay Z, but Kanye, Usher, Beyonce, Daft Punk, etc. on their roster, had full access to their social audiences, and yet still TIDAL failed. Appreciate the time, and since you're in SF, would you like to grab coffee? DM me!
john shahidi
john shahidi@john · Co-Creator of Shots Studios
@mrsharma Hey Nik, are you sure Tidal failed? I haven't read any news on them recently. Justin, Floyd, Bach, Rudy and all our partners helped get the word out for the Shots app but at the end of the day, the product has to be something everybody needs. I haven't looked at Tidal much and the reason why is, nobody has given me a real reason to get it. I've had Spotify since 2011 and I am happy with it. People told me to switch to RDIO awhile ago because of it's slick design but content will always beat design. Laughter is our "reason" and comedy will differentiate Shots from other apps who ended up allowing selfies after we launched.

What was your inspiration to make this Shots app, and what was your inspiration for this new update?
john shahidi
john shahidi@john · Co-Creator of Shots Studios
@ibieberauhlls Sam and I always do things that make the young John and Sam happy. I made a promise to myself when I was around 8 years old that I would never make anyone feel the way some kids at school made me feel. So I do things these days to keep the promise to myself. Sam is the same.

John, why am I so happy that I'm an investor in Shots? :-) But really, what's the #1 reason people on PH should give Shots a shot?
john shahidi
john shahidi@john · Co-Creator of Shots Studios
@benparr #1 -- Because you're full of love and passion. That's why I enjoy eating bar buts and drinking tea with you. #2 -- It's an app that will put a smile on your face. Something we can all use.

Erik Torenberg@eriktorenberg · Former Product Hunt
John can you talk about your experience in gaming a bit. in 2009 - how did you build those crucial relationships that would help fund / launch Shots?
john shahidi
john shahidi@john · Co-Creator of Shots Studios
@eriktorenberg We kept our games very simple. Our goal with RockLive was to recreate original Nintendo games on mobile since almost all mobile and console games are complicated. Our simple games attracted a young audience that never experienced original Mario or Sonic. LA is similar to SF, it's a small world there so if you make something good and easy to understand, word will travel.

With the evolution toward comedy, will Shots remain a safe space for self-expression that may not be positive/funny?
john shahidi
john shahidi@john · Co-Creator of Shots Studios
@slpearlman We will try our best. We can't always eliminate bullying. I can tell you that the Shots App will never have comments and we will never show how many followers/likes you have to the public. We don't want anyone to feel inadequate. Comedy can be edgy sometimes and we will be careful and make sure our community always feels safe. This is a good video to watch https://www.youtube.com/results?....

PLEASE READ JONH THAN YOU.make this message to Justin Bieber Please. Justin My name is Clara and I'm 19 years old. I'm a fan of yours since 6 years ago and I just wanted to tell you how much you mean to me. You helped me overcome my past, my life has not been easy my baby thank God for have you where you are now. When I was five, one man abused me sexually... I will not tell you this so you feel sorry for me. You with your music and God... I suffered these abuses for almost two years... My father was an alcoholic and my mother traveled to Spain to work and give a better life to my sister and me. The man almost always beat me until I was on the floor with a lot of blood.. But you know something? God and you have made me a strong woman. I do not want you because you're handsome or your reputation, I love you because I know what is the word "pain" and perhaps the other girls have not been through this, I know you're a good boy and I do not care what people say. God did not create perfect people,we are full of mistakes but you're a smart kid and you know you should do if people want to hurt you. justin do things that make you feel proud and not otherwise, if you're feeling alone just talk to God He will always listen.. I like to sing and actually made a song for you. After 6 years God finally helped me and gave me a job and I can see you in Purpose World tour. OMG. I recorded a video that will tell you that and more also I sing the song that I made you for you. The day of the concert will record the video on DVD and I try to do to reach your hands "Never say Never". I wish I could give you a hug every you make you feel bad. You taught me to say never say never and my dream is singing for many people as you do and fight for it until the end God is great and maybe someday we get to know in a billboar awards hahaha😂 (Canadá vs Colombia I'm latin girl). thanks for everything love . TE AMO. GOD BLESSED YOU.🙏 love you so much. [ Justin not asking you to answer me this message. but it would make me happy if you was said just " I read your message" want you to know I'll be here forever, If you reply to this message I promise I will not tell anyone or no up image of this message. to any social network] Att: Clara Andrade.💜

In Japan, shots is not popular yet, so what should I do for make it more popular? I've been made a poster and srickers and put it on streets for promotion in japan. and everyone who saw shots icon says like "I like this blue icon " I was so happy to hear that. And seriously shots is amazing app and it must be more famous! John, you're the best!

@jbcrewdotcom I thought of the idea in July when a group of friends came over to watch TV. We put on Apple TV and kept searching YouTube for funny stuff. We got so tired of searching that we fell asleep. The next morning I was literally spinning in a circle on one of those self balancing scooter things thinking of a better way and immediate way to find funny content on the internet. Then this feature clicked.

Hi John! I have some questions for you about Shots! 1. How did this start? I mean, since when you have been thinking about this app? 2. What did Justin say when you told him about this idea? 3. Why did you call the app "Shots" and what were you thinking of when you decided put that as a name and the logo? 4. We wanted to thank you because all you have done with all Shots' team.

@shotssupporters @shotsappfan 1. This new feature took about 6 months to development. There was a lot of thought behind it. We've been testing it since December and made a lot of tiny changes. 2. Yes, of course. We have 2 more major features related to comedy coming soon. 3. I love seeing my friends and family enjoy using and enjoying Shots. 4. Yes, all the time. I created a list on Twitter that has a lot of great supporting accounts and I get a lot of Shots news from there. 5. It makes me happy. I've had a couple "tears of joy" moments already today. Thank you.

PLEASE JOHN READ AND make this message to Justin Bieber PEOPLE PLEASE HELPE ME FOR JOHN READ THIS please.🔝 Justin My name is Clara and I'm 19 years old. I'm a fan of yours since 6 years ago and I just wanted to tell you how much you mean to me. You helped me overcome my past, my life has not been easy my baby thank God for have you where you are now. When I was five, one man abused me sexually... I will not tell you this so you feel sorry for me. You with your music and God... I suffered these abuses for almost two years... My father was an alcoholic and my mother traveled to Spain to work and give a better life to my sister and me. The man almost always beat me until I was on the floor with a lot of blood.. But you know something? God and you have made me a strong woman. I do not want you because you're handsome or your reputation, I love you because I know what is the word "pain" and perhaps the other girls have not been through this, I know you're a good boy and I do not care what people say. God did not create perfect people,we are full of mistakes but you're a smart kid and you know you should do if people want to hurt you. justin do things that make you feel proud and not otherwise, if you're feeling alone just talk to God He will always listen.. I like to sing and actually made a song for you. After 6 years God finally helped me and gave me a job and I can see you in Purpose World tour. OMG. I recorded a video that will tell you that and more also I sing the song that I made you for you. The day of the concert will record the video on DVD and I try to do to reach your hands "Never say Never". I wish I could give you a hug every you make you feel bad. You taught me to say never say never and my dream is singing for many people as you do and fight for it until the end God is great and maybe someday we get to know in a billboar awards hahaha😂 (Canadá vs Colombia I'm latin girl). thanks for everything love . TE AMO. GOD BLESSED YOU.🙏 love you so much. [ Justin not asking you to answer me this message. but it would make me happy if you was said just " I read your message" want you to know I'll be here forever, If you reply to this message I promise I will not tell anyone or no up image of this message. to any social network] Att: Clara Andrade.💜 MY TWITTER: 14ANDRADE1

@519nicolee I love going on walks in San Francisco. I walk everywhere, doesn't matter the time of day. The energy and culture is something else where. When I am back in Mission Viejo/OC, I enjoy just sitting on my parents couch or hang in their hot tub and have a couple of old friends over.

Hi, just wanted to say Shots is an amazing app. I love that it brings the joy of posting photos and connecting with others without having to deal with someones's negativity in the comments, cause life should be about being happy at the end of the day, not feeling bad about yourself.
john shahidi
john shahidi@john · Co-Creator of Shots Studios
@b_andrea Thank you and I agree. Unfortunately, it takes that 1 tiny negative comment to ruin your day. Even if the other 99 are positive.
Andrea Benz
Andrea Benz@b_andrea · Blogger
@john Personally, I don't get affected by a comment, more if someone around me is bringing negative energy then I'm like a sponge xP. It's quite funny to me to see how desperate people get to bring someone down. I just wish kids could understand that it's better not to give them a reaction or take their opinion to heart.

We should talk in dms on Twitter so we'll figure something out :) I'm going to meet Justin so maybe I should tell him about us meeting up. Just let me know in dms. Thanks John. Love you!

Hi John! First of all, the new update is awesome! Good job! Well, I have been a victim of bullying when I was in highschool so I know how it feels being criticized in person and via online. And that's why I love shots, because is social network that allows people to feel free to publish whatever they want without fear of cyber -bullying. I'd like to have a conversation with you in the future. You seems like a very smart and wise man. We should be friends! (Add me on shots: @bieberlife_20) Well, here are my questions 1. Do you have any plans to travel to South America in the future? 2. How is spend a day with Justin? 3. How is Hails? She seems like a nice and funny girl, I'd like to meet her one day Btw Sorry if my english is bad, I'm from peru and i'm still working on my english, come here one day and I could be your tourist guide!! Congratulations again for the success of Shots!!! All of you deserve it!
