My 3 followers will eventually grow to many more followers...I hope. But as of right now, I'm not posting questions. I'll wait till I get more followers. :)

I'd like more as I have some poll ideas stored in my head, but don't want to ask yet with only 14 followers. Also, I know my screen name is a bit misleading about who I really am, so I understand and am ok with that. I'm looking forward to seeing how this "follow" feature evolves in future versions.

My 4 followers and I have seen the light and are accepting new recruits, if they can handle it.

Unfortunately not. I'm hoping to build up though!

Only having one lonely follower is motivating me to comment more now.

And there needs to be a way to see a user's quizzes by clicking on their name or something in their profile. The chronological setup in the Polls feed is too limiting.

It's on the 2.1 list

Tony, you're awesome! Why your app doesn't have more attention than Instagram and Twitter is beyond me. I guess people would rather scroll through pictures of duck-lipped teens, random objects, and food items than deep, witty, and intellectual conversations.

lol droo - thanks. I'm hoping we'll get there! 2.0 is hopefully the beginning of big things. The world needs more people asking questions and learning from each instead of showing you pics of their cat or telling you that they just checked in to Starbucks.

Seriously! Tony, great support! I didn't expect you to ever see that comment. I was thinking I should email the request in, but it was a long day and now I'm just too lazy.

Amen tony!!! I've been telling all my friends to download this app if that helps. I've been using this app when it first came out and I remember saying to myself then..oh this is a cute little app lol, not anymore. It's grown huge!

Tony do you have the figure on the total SOH users?

Tony SOH Founder
03/28/13 9:55 pm

The user count is around 300,000 if I count total downloads ever.

Hopefully it'll build. Needs to be featured on the news. Best outlet.

JollyMan93 Big Sky Guy
03/28/13 10:09 pm

I think another best outlet would be social media like advertising on Facebook

Jeninerd Hoth, AK
03/28/13 10:12 pm

Couldn't we target a more intellectual audience?? The reason I don't spend all this time on Facebook is to avoid idiot-induced headaches.

Tony SOH Founder
03/28/13 10:15 pm

The best advertising is you guys loving it and telling others about it, who themselves love it and tell others. I'm thrilled to have 2.0 in your hands, but it is still missing a couple key features (most notably, the full web experience for app-challenged folks)...

laliberal Baton Rouge, LA

It needs to be able to "cluster" a little more, ie tabs, all polls by a user when u go to their page etc. I told two of my friends and they downloaded it but I couldn't find them in the last version. I'll just ask them their username. I think tis version makes that easier. :)

laliberal Baton Rouge, LA

Also when you get notifications in the app, there's no way to go to that place unless you hit it before it goes away. It's not in the notification center when it's in app. 2.1? :)

Tony SOH Founder
03/28/13 10:26 pm

yep - both of those are in 2.1 as well.

laliberal Baton Rouge, LA

Idea: create a "poll" and ask what little tweaks should be in the update and then post a blog on all the updates after your poll closes. :) this is LITERALLY my fab app and I have hundreds. On here every day.

I'm a fairly recent user, and I already have three other friends addicted to the app. Props tony (: Loving the new version.

That's one of my highest. We also have the same agree/disagree demographics

How I agree with independents and not democrats, idk!

zman117 Ohio

Most of the usual lefties profile's I have seen say they agree with independents. I have only seen a few that agree most with democrats.

Lol this poll has become a support group for all of us with little-to-no followers to meet each other and follow one another. It's actually quite beautiful, really. :')

I share you feelings. I joined a little after it first came out, but I was here before all the big shots. I even remember the poll that was the rise of cowboy.

Given I expected follows from the few that follow me on Instagram + 1 more, the fact I have more than 5 gets a "whoa!!!"

I was expecting more than 10, but I am happy with those who have followed me. All good reputable people whom I have debated with before on SoH.

In the same way. Everyone who follows me I have has at least one solid debate with.

I was surprised more than anyone because I was sure that several of those people hated my guts. As it turns out, this has been a good question for gathering people together. Yay! :-)

Lol getting top comment a few times made me cocky enough to think I was gonna get a bajillion followers, and here I am. Not that it matters or anything.. Okay, maybe it does..just a bit! I'm a high schooler with nothing to live for but social-networking apps, what do you expect? ;D

Same here Emma! When I leave my iPad alone for more than an hour today my notifications are suddenly full of "______ is now following you!"
I'm not complaining or anything, but I'm very much in shock at how many followers I'm amassing so quickly!

It's making me feel a lot of pressure to come up with good questions, but also not to post too many and burn myself (and anyone following me) out.
