The first will be launched before the end of the year, the latter – already in the near future.
Until the end of 2018, VKontakte will launch its own platform for publishing podcasts. Representatives of the social network told about this at the Moscow conference VK Media Day for authors, media and their publishers.
VKontakte marketing director Alexander Kruglov told that the platform for podcasts is implemented on the basis of an existing audio player. He noted that this will be a separate product, monetization of which will differ from the monetization of music in “VKontakte”.
The first time the section with podcasts in “VKontakte” will be available to a limited number of users within the framework of closed testing. Subsequently, the section is also built into the mobile social network application.
The administration of the social network also shared plans to present a new system of surveys in the near future. They will have the opportunity not only to vote for several points, but also to change their decision after the vote. New surveys can be limited in time, as well as adding covers. Also, personal polls will appear through the messages.
