At expoze.io we have been looking for ways to introduce our visual attention prediction platform to new audiences. One of the potential methods we have found and are investigating is to publish our platform on Product Hunt. But what exactly is Product Hunt?

For regular users, it can also be a great way to discover new and innovative products that you may not have found otherwise, the platform allows you to keep up to date with the latest trends in technology. It is a community driven platform, so the most interesting and useful products will rise to the top, so if you are someone who likes to keep up to date with the latest technology or are interested in finding new apps, websites and other digital products to use, then browsing Product Hunt could be a good use of your time.
Overall, Product Hunt can be a great platform for both creators and users/consumers. Especially for creators who are launching a new product and want to gain visibility and feedback from a community of early adopters, but it may not be the best fit for everyone. It's important to understand your goals and the stage of your product, and weigh that against the time and resources you're willing to invest, to decide whether or not it makes sense to use Product Hunt.
