I am a product designer/developer/engineer/embedded systems. I pretty much take interest in all sorts of form of programming, technology related stuff. Initially, when I came across Product hunt, I was so excited to notice such a website.
It was meant to solve a problem of discovering products easily, and I was caught up for the first few months to discover and read about it’s products.
However, I have realized over time, nearly all the products suck! Either they solve a very niche problem which only select few people will only use once per year or it’s just a badly designed product. When I say, badly designed, I specifically mean around the end goal of product e.g. endless todo, email apps. The sad part is that people upvote them to the top.
A good test would be to figure out what all prouducts are actually active after a period of 6 months.
The community sucks too. The comment sections reeks so mutual mental masturbation around ideas, thoughts in/around the product
Going to product hunt seems like such a useless thing. Most of product don’t have a utility value at all.
