Problems we ran into were caused by bad research at the beginning, because after development on the idea and prototype, we had found out there was another platform called tastebuds.fm which had a really similar idea and they had a fairly good active user base. To overcome this, we decided to make our platform open to ages 13+ because they only allow users over the age of 18.This is due to there site focusing on dating whereas ours is more for socialising and expanding our users social circles. We also have the group event gathering on our platform where people can join a group about a musical event and then can socialise within the group and then possibly meet up to attend the event together. This leads to a online social circle becoming a offline friendship between people of similar interests. We are proud of our ability to overcome the issues of finding a competitor to our service and staying confident in our idea and finding ways to be better which we believe we have done.
** We have learnt a lot during this hackathon, more than we where truly able to process. **
In the future, we hope to expand Musinex and make our platform much vaster and reach a global audience. We also want to make a mobile app which will run on all platforms make our platform more accessible to any user on any device
