Hello all, I was thinking it may be helpful for us to build a tool that would easily let couchers transfer data from couchsurfing and potentially other similar platforms to their coucher profile. Ideally the tool would take downloaded data (about, profile photo, interests, gender, address etc…) from couchsurfing and automatically fill the relevant data fields on couchers. This data is currently available for download in a json file.
I think it would decrease a lot of the friction that comes with completing profiles on a new account. I’m sure many of us have profile completion fatigue. At least I do , so a tool that could reduce this friction as much as possible would not only be useful but could become key in gaining more users from the couchsurfing platform. Convertkit used this strategy to gain users from mailchimp although it was done manually. This seems a lot simpler to implement. Just a thought
