I agree with this. I think a better way of thinking about MVP is by calling your V1 a "minimal compelling product". Your first version really needs to be minimally compelling so you get good usage which leads to good feedback, like you did. It's really a hard thing to decide but it's very important. Go to minimal and you will fail prematurely - too much and you will never launch. More thoughts here: http://www.stevoyoung.com/post/32933259890/forget-your-mvp-b...

The nice thing about failing too small is that you have plenty more chances to get it right. The trick is to do your small failures with small audiences and with minimal brand impact.
