Without any provision for users to create their own content, ShareChat initially operated solely as a platform for content sharing. ShareChat made it possible for users to share their original posters and creative content in April 2016 by enabling user-generated content production on its site. Around the same time, open tagging was made available to users, allowing anyone to come up with their own hashtags based on the content. [7]
