Fanbase Goals

  • Enable users to create their own communities where fans can easily communicate with the broadcasters and other users who shared the same Fanbase.

Product Feature

  • Fanbase settings & management (channel permissions, notifications, invite user to join fanbase, ban users, leave/deactivate fanbase)

  • List of joined fanbases & quick switch, allow users to switch to joined fanbase without going to the creator’s profile page.

  • Manage messages in chat channels (allow users to react to a message sent from others; enable creator to pin/unpin a message in a fanbase.

  • Recent activities of the fanbase (users join the fanbase, users sent gifts, users just up-voted)

  • Text composer (a member of the fanbase wants to mention someone in a message) send emojis, text messages, urls, and gifts.)

  • User profile in a fanbase (a users wants to see another user’s role in a fanbase, basic information including Avatar, Username, Role - creator/member, and Status/Level)

  • Inbox from Team LINO, following users and Others. (LINO message and Messages from the following users will be delivered to inbox; Messages from strangers will be delivered to “Others” inside of inbox with no notification.



Fanbase should allow users to see a list of members within the same fanbase; a way to switch to different fanbase with ease; Easy management message systems as well as private chat feature. With these goals in mind, I explored different user flows, user interfaces. Figuring out an intuitive way to enter fanbase from current website. How to embed fanbase inside the current system without making user feel lost of where they are currently at within the site.
