“Sagoon, not just a social media, but also social movement“. This statement is said by Sagoon’s Founder Govinda Giri at the launch event of Sagoon Mobile App. Govinda Giri a man with vision to create a social media where people can earn money while socialize. After 2 years of it’s official launch, Sagoon team has officially launched a first version of mobile app on 9th of December 2018. However, app was already uploaded in Play Google before the official launch.

As online engagement of the people has been tremendously increased, the number of people who spent on the social media also increased. Sagoon is a social Commerce Platform that helps its users build a rewarding life through the social path: Connect. Share. Earn. It is a multi-application platform available on Android smartphones – connected 4G/3G/EDGE or Wi-Fi.
Sagoon comes with three main features,My Day, Secrets Sharing and mood talk. Each product has unique features and a different customer presentation strategy; the purpose of each application is to strengthen true connections and be productive.
My day is tool that helps you to organize your day. But as I notice this does not have any strong point to be noted. you simply get three options
-To do list
-Reminder for yourself
Here, schedule is simply schedule for some work.But the issue or problem is I can not choose location.It says gives me message please choose valid location. I am quite confusing now what to choose. Anyway, this is not that best feature that Sagoon gave.
Lets talk about second option, To Do List. To Do List is simply a note that you need to do and let your loved one know. This features also did not grab my attention.Simply you list the things you do.
Now finally, last feature in My day is reminder. Reminder is kind of alarm which let you set your reminder. Extra option you get here is you can set reminder for others. Again this is not a game changer feature by Sagoon.
My day is not that unique idea which changes the social media revolution. May be some kinds of AI implementation which touches the emotion of the user might be new idea!But for now user will not feel that Sagoon has done new with this tool.
Secret is second feature that Sagoon has been providing. The story sharing is an information, experience, confession or incidence which you’ve never disclosed publicly in words. But, if disclosed, it can make people learn something significant. This feature is designed on the idea of building a transparent society and improving the quality of a personal life.
You are allowed to use 220 characters and up to three images to post a story. As a user, you can post your story (photos and video) under the “Open” category, allowing all of your contacts to view, like, dislike or comment on it.
You can choose story subject options like business, entertainment, sport, relationship, politics and confessions.While posting you can choose to hide your identity. You can also send one-on-one story messages which will vanish after they are read.
The most interesting and unique aspect of sharing a story is “tracking,” which means you can see the number and the names of locations your story has traveled to. I loved this concept.
The problem I got here is, while some story being seen, liked, commented, travelled and some stories are not seen. I don’t know how this happened?
MoodTalk is a simple chatting tool which lets your mood do the talking. You simply switch your mood happy, sad, sick, etc to express what you feel. As in real life where we do not record all things we say, in MoodTalk your chats also vanish automatically after 24 hours.
Why to use MoodTalk?
There can be days when you’re feeling happy, awesome, sad or plain sick. You don’t want to open an email/phone call or any other chat app to share your emotional state with family or friends. What happens? You stay alone and feel lonely. Here, with MoodTalk, let’s say you are sick, you can set your Mood to ‘Sick’, which will notify or send SMS to your loved ones who might start connecting with you and you can then express your feelings that re-establish your relation and remove your loneliness.
Sagoon introduces “Me page” a mix of personal and professional information, helping you network with others based on your mutual interests and needs. You can customize your profile with a photo, description, location and interest that truly identify who you are.
What Users Saying?
Users, specially from Nepal are quite excited at the same time nervous too. Some user have commented with some negative feedback that Sagoon is spamming the users detail through email. Most of the users are from Nepal and India. There are minor issue with app like changing background image, adding contacts, not boosting stories. Some users asking for increasing number of letter in the secret stories.
Anyway most of the users are positive about app’s future.
Sagoon is already doing so so late for the bringing product. From the time of first beta launching in Nepal, Sagoon is talking about only thee tools MyDay, Secret and MoodTalk. Only media coverage and hype will not lead to succeed in future.
In my perception talking about idea and doing nothing causes serious problem. As technology is evolving each and every second user’s perception is also changing. If we can not understand the user’s feeling the our product can not do well. Moreover, as Silicon valley alone capturing the world, Sagoon have challenge to stand up as success social media in the market.
Some points Sagoon should do in my perception is
- Sagoon should launch iOS version as soon as possible.
- Sagoon should bring frequent update for retaining users.
- Should focus on Social Smart Card as they are claiming it is a game changer.
- If no uniqueness then Sagoon will have tough time to compete with Social media giants like Facebook, Twitter.
NOTE: I am not an expert but I have tried to dig down the App functionality and given my thoughts. If you feel something else then you can comment in the comment section below!!!
