I'm developing a social media app and I'm currently mapping out the onboarding process.
My onboarding process won't include fulfilling profile information, adding profile pictures, etc. in order to keep it short and concise. It will include things like interests and suggested contacts.
In this case, should I have first time users land directly on their profile page straight after the onboarding is complete? (The profile page is not the usual landing page for existing users.)
My aim would be to prompt them to fill out their profile without forcing them to do so in the onboarding process (as customizing your profile would be more of an extension of the onboarding process, but is not required).
- Would this be a generally acceptable method?
- Are there any other methods to prompt users to complete their profile without forcing them through a lengthy onboarding process?
