Zara is on a distinguished road


The design is rather empty, to be honest... Too much white-space, a rather poor presentation, and not really anything to catch my attention. I looked at the site a few days ago and closed it within 1 second. I only opened it back up today to have a fresh look and give you a review after hearing the idea behind it...

Unfortunately though, this has kind-of already been done before... It reminds a lot of

TocaChat doesn't seem very intuitive, and there isn't anything telling you what the site is. Go to Facebook, and it tells you "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life." Go to Quora, and it say "Quora connects you to everything you want to know about." While both are rather bland statements, they give you some perspective.

Also, how do you find topics you're interested in? Simply by the tags alone? The inconsistency on the tags gives off a less-than-professional feel. Perhaps converting them to Capital Casing (Like This) or all Lower Case (like this) would help?

You're plain-text logo leaves one thinking it's a 5min site thrown together. While your page title says Toca Chat, you're logo says TOCACHAT. While I don't know what either one means, Toca Chat is easier to read and gives you some-what of an idea that it's a community driven site...

Please don't take any of this personal, I'm not trying to be rude or disrespectful. You asked for a review and suggestions so this is my critical critique. I'll give you props though on having as many posts as you do. I'd never be able to populate a site like that in less than 7 months...
