  • The Perfect Local Media Company in 2014: A Composite Sketch Sebastien Provencher Co-founder, Praized Media [email_address]
  • Social Media: 2004-2009
    • Maturity of the blogosphere
    • Arrival of social Yellow Pages (Yelp, Qype, TrustedPlaces, etc.)
    • Arrival of social news (Digg, Reddit, Mixx)
    • Explosion of social networking (MySpace, Linkedin, Facebook, etc.)
    • Growth of real-time media (Twitter, Friendfeed)
  • Can We Extrapolate Future Local Media Features? Social Media Landscape
  • Activity Streams Display internal and external activities, some automated, some human, in a reverse chronological order Aggregation of activities, content and reviews Enabling interaction on the activity stream is important (like, comment, share)
  • Identity System & Social Graph Leverage an existing social graph with a friend system (synchronous or asynchronous)
  • Status Updates & Real-Time Conversations Enable status updates and conversations between users & merchants. Don’t forget conversation threading.
  • User Content
    • A basic social building block: ratings, reviews, comments, blog posts, citizen journalism, etc.
  • Trends & Top Lists
    • Trending topics/filters/lists will be needed to organize content and cut through the noise
  • Geo-Localisation & Hyperlocal/Neighborhood
    • Automatic detection of location is fundamental, maybe to the neighborhood level but is there enough content in smaller areas?
  • Questions & Answers
    • Internet users have a lot of questions and search engines don’t have all the answers.
  • Distributed Content, Features & Business Model (API, RSS)
    • The Web is fragmented. You need to deportalize your content and business model and integrate yourself where local conversations are happening
  • E-mail
    • Thought e-mail was gone? Think again. Useful to provide incentive to come back to your site.
  • Reward Systems
    • Human behaviours can be influenced by reward systems. "Reality is broken. Why aren't game designers trying to fix it?" - Jane McGonigal
  • Check-in
    • Checking in is now a required feature for
    • mobile local apps
  • Sharing and Short-form URLs
    • Sharing is a key social feature and a short-form URL is now needed to share in Twitter
  • Community managers Image source: http://www.pisitoenmadrid.com Not exactly a feature but a requirement nonetheless. Humans are needed to manage your community.
  • Summary
    • Many interesting new social features
    • Did I forget any?
    • Does this create a compelling local media story?
