  10. 10. 007 Trivia Challenge Evolution to AskMyFriends… - Wall/Publisher/Notification based interactions to accommodate for redesign - Daily 007 trivia questions - Individuals respond, but need friends to do so as well to unlock correct answers - Users invite friends (active virality) to assist - Notifications and wall posts alert friends (passive virality) of the question - Unlocked answers “rank” the ad hoc team‟s performance
  11. 11. Some Quick Lessons Learned… • These platforms change frequently, and can be very disruptive and unannounced – be vigilant in maintaining your presence and updating your strategy • 3rd-party app networks can deliver efficiency and flexibility • Get beyond the “Build it & they will come” mentality…because they won’t just come • Keep it simple and intuitive – fewer objectives is better, and shorten users’ paths at every opportunity • Silly to start from zero… • “Viral” shouldn’t BE your strategy – just part of a comprehensive plan • Clear the Legal hurdles first – we underwent churn and re-work due to multiple review cycles with counsel • Always work with pros…There is no “just sticking your toe in the water”
