Alex Zhu, founder of Musical.ly and VP of TikTok, on product development

  • Make content light + production and consumption fast
  • Don't fight human nature
  • Get young early adopters
  • Optimize your product for early adopters
  • Interact with users
  • Starting a product requires convincing people
  • Early users should get a lot of value quickly, and become role models
  • Later, create a "middle class" of average users who have opportunity to advance, but get value from being average
  • If users become famous, they'll need revenue to stick around
