Step 1 -- Good things worth to share - Getting inspiration by observation
I noticed that lots of my friends love to share their pet's photos or videos on social media platforms and also, most of my friends would like to repost the funny animals videos and photos when they like them because they want to share the recorded pleasant moment to their connections.
The clips of data research from Youtube
I browsed some funny animal's video on the Youtube according to the hot ranking. Those hilarious videos have stunning view numbers, which is proportional to the numbers of thumbs up. Viewers give generously of their likes to those videos because it is one very simple interaction that is clicking the like button. I got the inspiration to build one charity app to raise donations by applying same interactive mechanic. One click interaction is simple and easy but also could be tremendous and significance.
