How Did You Learn About Nairaland For The First Time? by Babtunz(m): 2:17am On Jun 04
Here's a fun and an engaging question I'd like to ask all Nairalanders.

How did you learn about this platform the very first time?
Can you remember the very first time you visited this website?

Did you learn about it in an advert, a Facebook post, Twitter or someone referred you here?

I'm asking this because I can't forget how I learned about this platform.

To answer the question, I'd go first...

I came across this platform sometime between 2015 and 2016.
I was a secondary school finalist then, and the person I lived with happened to be an IT expert, he's always on his laptop and then I'd see him scrolling down a site with green text almost everyday. I was interested in knowing what's he's doing here and what really caught my eyes was the name of the site. NAIRALAND. What could this site be? I always wondered and I memorized the name from there. I think what helped is the name of the platform, what could he be doing on a site named NAIRALAND? I was particularly interested about the 'Naira' part because then I thought this platform teaches people how to make money (well, it does).

At that time I didn't have a phone of my own and I couldn't create an account, all I do was just borrow phones to view the site as a guest. I got my own phone after secondary school and since then, I've been an active member of this platform.

And jsyk, I am a silent reader of the Travel section (you probably know why, lol) it's one of my favorite parts of this place. Another favorite section of mine on this platform is the Programming section grin

The information and knowledge that I have gotten from this place is invaluable, and I'm grateful to the creator and management for their efforts.

From my observations, I think the management needs to work more on the marketing of this site, this platform isn't popular as it should be. This place should be the frontpage of most Nigerians ( is it Uraniums? grin) on the internet.

I hope to see this site become really popular as much as I hope it would.

Woah, that's a lot...
Can you share your own story with us? How did you get here? cheesy

I used to brag about naijaloaded of makinde as the best site in nigeria(tho it was new then), before a friend ask me to check out nairaland. I was a guest for a couple of years cos i was addicted to naijaloaded due to music download. But recently, i was convince that nairaland is another world entirely cos of variety of people u meet and the way they reason and comment.

Exactly! Google redirected me, though I've heard about Nairaland during an argument in comparison to Linda Ikeji Blog @ my Villa back then on Campus (`2013)

Couldn't recall exactly how I came to know about the website. But I know I used to visit nairaland and other sites for java games, like donprosperT, sefan.ru, waptrick, wapday, mobile9, getjar...(java and symbian users can relate).

I first heard about nairaland many years ago when I was having a discuss with friends about young entrepreneurs and one of them mentioned suen osewa and how he is a drop out and yet created Nigeria's no 1 forum

What really made me registered was because of one brother in church, I usually sit close to him in church, each and everytime when the pastor is teaching or the choir are ministrying, man is always on nairaland page (rccg P.O.R) I still don't known your name or have we spoken before, but if u see this post mention me grin

I had just finished secondary school and was working in my uncle’s cyber cafe. This IT guy will come and spend hours surfing the web, 1hr was N150, and back in 2006 N150 was something, And this guy spends hours. I could monitor what he was doing from my system as admin, so I decided to check out the website he’s always on (Nairaland). Soon I was hooked, registered 2007 and has been a member since then.

undecided

First time I saw this site was in 2007 grin grin

Then the text was not like this.

Though nairaland has undergone upgrades , it still lagging behind in many features that is common with other social media sites.


Nairaland should have a dislike button.

Site should be capable of video uploads

The emoticons should be upgraded to look more realistic.

When I wanted to find out the salary structure of the central bank of Nigeria
I came across the thread where some people were agitating for CBN job , maybe there was a failed recruitment, the leader of the agitation suddenly went cold and it was rumoured to have been employed
