  • Podcast Example –  Founded by Leo Laporte, radio/TV host.  Started off with one show, grew to many.  Various ways to have remote participants.  Video added later. 33
  • How They Work – Video/Photos  Users create videos or take pictures and upload them to their respective sites.  No cost to upload. Can store a limited (but not restrictive) amount of media 34

  • Aside: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) 45
  • Google Dominates Search 46
  • How SEO Works  1 Generation Google Algorithm: Links  Unethical marketers or Black Hat SEO marketers would create sites with nothing but links to hack the system. 47
  • How SEO Works  2nd Generation Algorithm: Links + Content  Black Hat SEOs practiced ―keyword stuffing‖ and hid keywords to improve ranking. 48
  • How SEO Works  3rd Generation Google Algorithm: Links + Content + Activity (traffic, RSS subscriptions, comments, updates, etc.) 49

  • Strength of Weak Ties  Based on a 1973 paper by sociologist Mark Granovetter.  Significant percentage of people get their jobs as a result of information provided by a weak tie or friends-of-friends. 74
  • Strength of Weak Ties  150 member is typically the most that can be maintained.  The size of the tribe. Consistent across times and cultures. 75
  • Strength of Weak Ties  Now with social networks, you can maintain ―supernets‖ that have more than 150 weak ties, which you can trust more than mass media like TV or newspapers.  The average number of Facebook friends is 130, slightly less than the observed 150. 76
  • Strength of Weak Ties  There is some evidence that sharing information on social media networks:  Makes you more likely to be liked in social interactions. 77
  • Strength of Weak Ties  There is some evidence that sharing information on social media networks :  Builds "social capital" - a sociological measure of the value of beneficial relationships. Social capital is linked to increased well-being and self-esteem. 78
  • Strength of Weak Ties  There is some evidence that sharing information on social media networks :  Increases influence. In a color picking experiment, the people who could see the choices of more participants (in other words, were better connected) persuaded the group to pick their color: even when they had to persuade the vast majority to give up their financial incentive. 79
  • Strength of Weak Ties  There is some evidence that sharing information on social media networks :  Makes one more attractive: people with about 300 friends were rated as the most appealing, any more than that and their social attractiveness began to drop off. 80

  • How They Create Connections  Wikis have talk pages where contributors discuss what can be included.  Those who contribute more have their name in front of more users.  Contributors can be accredited experts or enthusiastic amateurs 88
  • How They Create Connections  In Open Source, those who add more features and fix more bugs can shape what appears in new releases of the software. 89
  • How They Challenge Existing Players  8th most popular site on the web.  Wikipedia has helped kill the traditional Encyclopedia and Microsoft‘s Encarta. 90
  • How They Challenge Existing Players  The users highlight what they think is important about a company not what a company thinks is important.  Example: Nike‘s page has a section on their alleged human rights abuses. 91
  • How You Can Use Them  Wikipedia is highly ranked in search results.  Wikipedia discourages companies from creating and maintaining their own page, but it does allow them to make factual corrections. 92
  • How You Can Use Them  Wikis are open sourced and free so companies are creating them as an alternate support system for their customers. 93
  • Class Examples 94

  • Participation  20% of online Americans participate in forums.  25% of online Americans read ratings and reviews. 101
  • How They Create Connections  Forums are slow motion conversations.  By responding to each other, participants get to know each other and build new connections even though they‘ve never met. 102
  • How They Create Connections  Forums are a success because they let the participants ―show off.‖  Example: Harriett Klauser was Amazon‘s top reviewer. She reads two books a day and has 21,000 reviews. Publishers send her 50 books a week to read. 103
  • How They Challenge Existing Players  Takes commentary from the hands of ―experts‖ and gives the customers the opportunity to have their say.  A single customer can criticize any one thing that has gone wrong (e.g. there‘s a fly in my soup, the hotel smells funny, the video is boring). 104
