Gen-Z does not want to be monitored and manipulated by algorithms that seem to be getting more aggressive by the day. Therefore, they are regularly looking for the most natural platforms.

However, there are some concerns about Hive Social that are being reported that readers should know about before trying their hands on the platform.

The app often crashes with varied usage patterns. Some have reported that it crashes when loading their avatar, while others experience it when scrolling through posts.

Earlier, some assumed that Hive Social is down because their servers are unable to handle the influx in traffic.

But the prevalence of this problem over the past 4-5 days indicates that there might be something wrong with the Android app.

I suppose everyone saying positive things about Hive Social has an iPhone, because I try it on my Android phone and the damn thing keeps crashing! I thought it was only when I was trying to set up my profile that it would allow me to post, but no!

First impressions are good. Some of the big Android stuff are some jitter when scrolling, the app freezes and then crashes when refreshing the feed, and the dark mode seems to reset when the app is closed. Keen to see how it grows from here!
