  • Tagged.com is a social networking site founded in 2004. Tagged is the subject of numerous customer complaints for sending deceptive bulk mail and is regarded as a phishing and spamming site and an &apos;E-mail scam&apos; by consumer anti-fraud advocates. <br /> <br /> A TIME magazine article called Tagged &apos;The World&apos;s Most Annoying Website&apos;. Tagged asks users for their email username and password, checks their email address books for contacts and repeatedly sends email invitations to people who are not yet on Tagged, stating that they have been &apos;added as a friend&apos; or that the inviter had sent them photos on Tagged. These emails were discussed as possible spam by Black Web 2.0. The resemblance to a virus has often been mentioned, including by urban legend site Snopes.com. The New York Times referred to the practice as &apos;contact scraping&apos; <br />

  • Friendster and the fakesters <br /> Make sure there is a &#x201C;there&#x201D; there. Give users a reason to rally. <br /> Why would someone come to your site? What&#x2019;s your social object? <br /> <br />
  • <br />
  • Term Social Objects coined by Jyri Engstrom <br /> <br /> The term &#x201C;social networking&#x201D; makes little sense if we leave out the objects that mediate the ties between people. Think about the object as the reason why people affiliate with each specific other and not just anyone. <br />

  • Enable a bridge to real life <br /> <br /> Let&#x2019;s put on a show = spontaneous gatherings, broadcasting of gatherings - enable, embrace location and mobile tools - and the crossover <br /> Hey Kids - Let&#x2019;s put on a show. The classic Andy Rooney / Judy Garland movies from 1939 involved gathering their group of friends together for a spontaneous show to raise money for something or other and then they would announce the show to everyone in town. The social tools that create a bridge to real life allow you to gather friends together, broadcast to friends, broadcast to others (public forum), plan real life meetups, and then capture the event and archive it for later viewing back online. <br /> <br />

  • Cargo Cult <br /> Wikipedia definition: any group of people who imitate the superficial exterior of a process or system without having any understanding of the underlying substance. The error of logic made by the islanders consisted of mistaking a necessary condition (i.e., building airstrips, control towers, etc.) for cargo to come flying in, for a sufficient condition for cargo to come flying in, thereby reversing the causation. On a lower level, they repeated the same error by e.g. mistaking the necessary condition (i.e. build something that looks like a control tower) for building a control tower, for a sufficient condition for building a control tower. <br /> <br /> Zoomr, flickr <br /> e out of name, tagline, source code <br /> AOL homepage - copy Yahoo including source code <br /> <br /> iPhone - Pre, Etc - other phones <br /> <br /> Patterns - used blindly without understanding context and need <br /> <br /> Erin <br />
