    • THE SOCIAL GRAPH& the technology is here...
    • THE RECOMMENDATION ENGINESMarissa Mayer (Vice President, Search Products & User Experience, Google) “...card companies know with 98% accuracy two years beforethat youre going to get divorced...” (SXSW 2011)
    • THE RECOMMENDATION ENGINESWhether or not the previous claim is true, on-line retailers inthe past few years have been betting their future on the ideathat they can harness the power of their user-basepreferences & consumption patterns, to bring more relativerecommendations with a higher probability of purchasing.Netflix on Sep 2009, offered a grand prize of 1.000.000 $ fora recommendation algorithm that bested their own.
    • THE RECOMMENDATION ENGINESIt all ends up to answering a simple question: “What would you most probably buy?”...based on your own past actions & those of people withsimilar preferences and patterns to yours.
    • THE RECOMMENDATION ENGINESIn a similar way the Social Graph could benefit fromanswering a simple question: “What would you most probably like to share/ read/ watch/ listen to?”
    • SOCIAL MEDIA 2.0: THE INTEREST GRAPHthe network of people whoshare interests with you, butwho you don’t necessarily knowpersonally
    • THE INTEREST GRAPHThe interest graph represents the convergence of themechanisms behind the Social Networks & the PersonalizedRecommendation Engines.It analyzes yours & your friends’ interests, compares them toall the other users with similar patterns of behavior, anddelivers new recommendations on content that is closer toyour likings.
    • THE INTEREST GRAPHThe interest graph is the new way todiscover new content & people withsimilar tastes to you.It is the new way to get from yoursocial graph (& beyond), the contentthat will interest you personally, and notthe latest “cute little kitty” video, ormessage from a brand you wouldnever use.
    • THE INTEREST GRAPHOne of the first areas where it is being implemented, is that ofthe “Social Magazines”.These applications aggregate content from a variety of socialmedia, and based on specific algorithms, present to the userthe content that is considered more relevant to his/herpreferences.The more the user uses the applications, the more accuratethey become.
    • THE INTEREST GRAPHIt is already implemented in applications like ZITE & NewsMix and soon in Flipboard
    • THE INTEREST GRAPHAs brands need to engage their existing and prospectcustomers in a deeper level and with a higher accuracy, theinterest graph introduces a new challenge and opportunity:To communicate your messages to those people that couldgenuinely be interested to what you have to say.The interest graph promises to deliver your message to thosethat interest you.
    • THE INTEREST GRAPHIt is here to tell you: “I know what you did last summer, so let me tell you what you should do this one”
