First Fate Discover as a Promotional Tool for UsersInitially, supported by banner ads, after the launch of First Fate Discover, the company allowed the advertisers to post their advertisements in the Discover Feed. The company launched it with the option of Bid Per Day, spreading the message that advertisers are only paying a fixed amount per day, regardless of how many more users view their ad or express their interest. The Ads are scattered across the Discover Feed, which also consists of organic posts shared by the users. The advertisers can track how many users expressed interest to their post, and have the option of the "First Message" i.e. sending an initial message to the users who expressed their interest. Upon receiving a reply, they can chat among themselves. It was considered a new way to get leads, than existing mechanisms of CPC and CPI, which limit the reach of the ads depending on the budget.

The app uses Google Maps technology to list and suggest places to review.
First Fate Android App Launched
First Fate Social Network, or commonly known as First Fate, is an online social media and social network service that allows users to share pictures and videos either publicly or privately, with their friends and followers. It was created by Aman Gupta and launched in March 2016 as a mobile photo sharing application for Android Devices. First Fate lets its registered users share photos and short 10 second videos (known as Video Nanotales) with their friends and followers. Initially, First Fate was launched as an app for getting instant honest opinions and feedback about the content being shared, with the users unable to view existing comments and post ratings unless they rated their opinion first, hence the name "First Fate" was coined by its founder and current MD & CEO, Aman Gupta.
First Fate App Features are added in its first release
Video Profile IdentityFirst Fate launched its video profile picture of 5 seconds in its first release in March 2016. The users can film a 5 second video and use it as their profile picture. Currently, the app only allows real time videos as profile pictures i.e. users cannot use existing saved videos as profile video. These videos are paused by default and the users can view anyone's video picture by tapping on the play icon which is visible on their profile picture. Other Features First Fate allows use to track trends in form of most used hashtags on the basis of hour, day and week. The users can check popular photos and videos shared by users on Explore tab. Users can also chat with their followers using a private message system within the app, which also allows sending photos and videos.
Basic First Fate Concepts are conceptualized and Added
Two key features added: #FirstFateIt and Reputation Score.
"First Fate It"First Fate was launched as an app for getting instant honest opinions and feedback about the content being shared, with the users unable to view existing comments and post ratings unless they rated their opinion first. This feature is dubbed by the First Fate users, as "FirstFateIt". The post ratings and comments become visible once the user rates their opinion. To protect the honest feedback process, the users cannot change their rating once they rate, but they can freely participate and change their opinion after reading the comments.
Reputation ScoreReputation Score is a score which is calculated after adding all the post scores that users have received on his/her posts. Every user can rate a particular post in one of Five Ways - WOW, Heart, Laugh, Like, Sad, which are worth 4,3,2,1 and 1 points respectively. This post score is calculated by adding all the points received by the user for that post. e.g If a Post has 5 WOWs, 2 Hearts, 1 Laugh and 1 Like, the post score becomes 5*4 + 2*3 + 1*2 + 1*1 = 29, for that post. Reputation Score is the cumulative total of all the post scores of a user. It is used by users as an "Influence Check", with higher reputation score meaning more popularity or more influence, since the user cannot change their ratings for a post after rating it out of 5 ways, and cannot see the post score before rating it.
First Fate App Concept is Formulated
First Fate's origin dates back to October 2015, when Aman Gupta thought of developing a technology that could help people get honest reactions and opinions. In December 2015, after hiring Android and iOS developers, he officially began development for First Fate Social App, after considering making it a mobile-based photo sharing application. The name "First Fate" was coined after the initial purpose of the app, which was knowing the first fate or first reaction of the shared post or video.
