Discord as a social network for gamers.
Let’s start by talking about what for many is the highlight of discord, and the reason why it is preferred over its competition (such as zoom and Skype). Discord is not limited to being just an app for calls, since it has become a social network. Since you have the possibility of joining groups (or servers as they are normally called). Dedicated to various themes or communities in particular. To give you an example, many influencers or streamers create their own discord server to play with their followers.
This gives rise to the social factor is increased considerably. Not to mention, it’s much easier for newcomers to find people to play and talk with. If you want to know how to join one of these servers, you only have to locate its access link (Generally shared by the YouTube or page in question). Or find it through the search engine that Discord has integrated; it also has the possibility of being invited by a friend who is already on the server.
Obviously within the server, it will be segmented into different rooms, each of which will have an assigned purpose. These purposes will depend on the role you want to give the STAFF (Server Administrative Team). As well as having the possibility to add the members with whom you sympathize in the community, and later make calls in private (if they wish).
