Ratings and Reviews
Good way to connect with other educators
I’m in the educator community and it’s been fun connecting with others across the country. It’s more welcoming than “teacher gram”. Sometimes networking and advice can be limited because education differs so much from state to state, but everyone in the community has a common ground. When it comes to topics like behavior, or work-life balance, those are universal.
Some logistical things with the app bug me—like double tapping to add punctuation in a post will add a space between the final word and end mark. This doesn’t show until your post/comment is posted and as an English teacher that really bothers me. Characters in posts are limited—wish there were more! It’s also tedious to get back to the notifications screen after checking post updates. The back button will send you to the “bowl” instead of simply back to where you left off.
App is centered around gathering your contact information as well as those in your phone. It will then spam your contacts with invitations to the app.
Edit: I find the developers response disingenuous and misleading. I received a text stating I had been ‘mentioned’ in a conversation by a colleague. The app would not allow me to see this conversation until I signed up and allowed it access to my contacts, which is undoubtedly how the last guy got suckered into giving up my number to begin with. To make matters worse, I was never actually mentioned by the person Fishbowl referenced on the text message I received from them in any conversation. It was simply Fishbowls way of getting me to sign up. I believe this is called Spam.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your candid feedback. Fishbowl takes user privacy very seriously. During the sign-up process, Fishbowl has a Choose Who You Know feature that asks users to verify that they know someone at their Company. The platform operates as a professional networking service, and requires users to verify their place of employment. Similar to other social networks like LinkedIn, users are offered an opportunity to connect their contacts so users can share posts and direct message people they may know who are on the platform for networking purposes.
Times have changed especially with the #MeToo movement and it's necessary to challenge traditional and outdated workplace practices and regulations. Fishbowl is a place where professionals are finally talking about taboo topics like the wage gap, promoting diversity, gender representation, etc. It's only through initiating these much needed convos that we can stimulate change and better practices. I do hear convos from Fishbowl being talked about in my office now and hope it influences change down the line.
