  • 19. What went wrong with  Beginning: Finding "lost" friends was a fun game but it was not meant to last  As it evolved, people did new things with it. myspace.com allow users freedom to create.  Was launched in 2002 when economy was slow and many web-minded 20- somethings slacking at work  Was seen as a dating site  server slowness discourage members to log in regularly  Did not grow with users, restricted its users notably Fakesters and those with more creative non-photorealistic profiles  Did not try to understand its users WWW.F5DC.COM
  • 20. Background Info  Set up in WWW.F5DC.COM
  • 21. Case Study: Why F1GPSG did not getthe ‘hoo-ha’ that was expected?Relating to the success factors of social networking website, f1gpsg.com did achieve  - Content: Yes. Updated news on F1, relevant and informative details on Singapore Grand Prix during the race season. Clear text, images and links.  - Design: Yes, pretty cool and stylish.  - Navigation: Not really, gets pretty confusing on 1st visit. There’s no presence of directed surf/exploration routing.  - Community: f1 fans scattered but exists. Where do f1 fans in Singapore gather before Singapore Grand Prix?  - Technology: forum based, stable but has yet to establish other more interactive applications. WWW.F5DC.COM
  • 22. Contrast with the Steps of setting a socialnetworking website" Failed to capture good 1st impression" Didn’t entice members to refer others" No objectives for members to make repeat visits. Current member size is <400. Regular contests are set up but only a couple of active members are participating. No value add for passive members" Blocked out intrusive advertising." Did not source out existing f1 fan base and tap from them" Lacked entertainment, only forums to let them express their opinions but lacked visual and audio stimulation." Invited the right people. Start from outside circle and still remain outside. Where is the core?" keep it small and private" viewed members as advisors to the community" Social glue is missing after race season" Managed in sporadic functions; lacked control and planning" Focus on building the portal this year on, with goals and objectives set across and resources allocated." Rewards and reciprocity; but doesn’t encourage community building WWW.F5DC.COM
  • 23. Recommendations  Create a purpose. If forum is the core activity, it should be positioned at a ‘eye-catching’ location.  Currently, the ‘forum’ link is hidden under ‘community’ tab  Create a logical navigation flow. Current site is too ‘haphazard’ & ‘crowded” & confusing, 1st time user is ‘lost’  Statistics doesn’t reflect well on the site, affect visitor’s judgment. WWW.F5DC.COM
  • 24.   Design & layout of site is not visually appealing (maybe a bigger font size)  Element of ‘Personality’ is missing. Other than posts by members, the site seems to be merely ‘copy & paste’ or feeds from other site. Can have a section on f1gpsg activities.  Assess the needs of functions such as inbox, search, member list, user groups as they are not optimized.  Gallery should be organized.  Pre-requisites for downloads should be made known.

  • 26. API based sales  eBay allows members to trade on their own sites rather than forcing them to set up their stores on eBay. Their revenues increased by 86%.  40% of Salesforce revenue comes from external sites that use their API, not their own website.  $490 million per quarter comes from Amazon’s API, not their site.Virtual Worlds  Gigaom forecasts Virtual World revenues to be $6 Billion by 2012. Anything from Virtual goods, virtual real estate, & product placement and endorsements can be a great source of revenue. http://www.webgrrls.com/blog/2008/12/11/monetizing-social-mediabeyond-the-ad-model/ WWW.F5DC.COM
