  • This talk has 3 parts
  • 1. The case for social objects 2. Five principles for building services around them 3. My take on the next wave
  • butterfly, butterfly fly in the sky butterfly, butterfly flies so high butterfly, butterfly lands on my thigh butterfly, butterfly motionlessly lies butterfly, butterfly gracefully dies
  • $580M
  • Is MySpace another butterfly?
  • The sites that fail are just ‘social networks’
  • The sites that work are built around social objects
  • Think about the object as the reason why people connect with each particular other and not someone else
  • Flickr did it to photos
  • Delicious did it to bookmarks
  • Amazon did it to books
  • The focal object on MySpace is music
  • How does one build a service around social objects?
  • 5 key principles
  • 1. Define your object
  • When we first launched Flickr, it was a Flash application that was mainly just a chat environment with real-time photo sharing. As we started adding features to the site itself, like pages that hosted the photos so that people could visit them at a unique URL, we had a lot more success with that. People responded to it, and the site began to grow. Eric Costello
  • Think about the objects on these services
  • 2. Define your verbs
  • Silent selling on Igglo
  • 3. Make the objects shareable
  • E-mailable permalinks http://www.flickr.com/photos/jyri/315809759/ http://youtube.com/watch?v=XhXvlLiVXCo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_network Thumbnails and widgets Actual files
  • 4. Turn invitations into gifts
  • PayPal example
  • Skype example
  • 5. Charge the publishers not the spectators
  • Habbo Japan example
  • Freemium business model
  • Quick Checklist 1. What is your object? 2. What are your verbs? 3. How can people share the objects? 4. What is the gift in the invitation? 5. Are you charging the publishers or the spectators?
  • What will be the Next Big Thing in participatory media?
  • Can anything disrupt blogs?
  • Preconditions of a disruptive innovation: 1) Simpler or 2) Cheaper or 3) Frees from need to go to inconvenient place
