    9. 9. Virtual Community A virtual space supported by computer-based information technology, centered upon communication and interaction of participants to generate member-driven content , resulting in relationships being built up. (Lee & Vogel, 2003)
    10. 10. Webb/Butterfield/Smith Model Based on Matt Webb , Stewart Butterfield ’s and Gene Smith’s writings
    11. 11. The Social Web is a digital space where data about human interactions is as important as other data types for providing value Community is when those humans care about each other.
    12. 12. Where is all this happening?

    14. 16. When do I have to do something about all this?
    15. 17. When? Are you waiting for Web 4.0?
    16. 18. Credits: Tim O’Reilly’s The Facebook Application Platform and compete, a a site for web metrics

    32. 36. Reciprocity
    33. 37. What's the motivation of behind these people actually interacting and participating? … people want to share with the community what they believe to be important …. and they want to see their name in lights. They want to see their little icon on the front page, their username on the front page, so other people can see it. Reputation
    34. 38. Increased sense of efficacy
    35. 39. Attachment to and need of a group
    36. 40. The New Third Place? <ul><li>“ All great societies provide informal meeting places, like the Forum in ancient Rome or a contemporary English pub.

    43. 47. Webb/Butterfield/Smith Model Based on Matt Webb , Stewart Butterfield ’s and Gene Smith’s writings
    44. 48. 1.) If you were going to build a piece of social software to support large and long-lived groups, what would you design for? The first thing you would design for is handles the user can invest in. Clay Shirky, A Group Is Its Own Worst Enemy http://shirky.com/writings/group_enemy.html
    45. 49. Identity <ul><li>Identity </li></ul><ul><li>Avatar </li></ul><ul><li>Profile </li></ul><ul><li>Activity </li></ul><ul><li>Collections </li></ul>
    46. 50. Identity is Context Based Facebook- Personal LinkedIN - Professional
    47. 51. Presence
    48. 52. Presence <ul><li>Presence </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Status </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>History </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Statistics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Signs of Life </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Company </li></ul></ul>
    49. 53. Presence <ul><li>Presence </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Status </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>History </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Statistics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Signs of Life </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Company </li></ul></ul>
    50. 54. 2.) Second, you have to design a way for there to be members in good standing. Have to design some way in which good works get recognized. The minimal way is, posts appear with identity. You can do more sophisticated things like having formal karma or &quot;member since.&quot;
    51. 55. Reputation
    52. 56. Relationships
    53. 57. 3.) Three, you need barriers to participation. This is one of the things that killed Usenet. You have to have some cost to either join or participate , if not at the lowest level, then at higher levels. … anyone can read Slashdot, anonymous cowards can post, non-anonymous cowards can post with a higher rating. But to moderate, you really have to have been around for a while. Missing block?
    54. 58. Groups <ul><li>Groups </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Norms </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>- Vilification </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>- Veneration </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>- Rules </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Jargon & In-Jokes </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Collective Choices </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
    55. 59. Norms Missing block?
    56. 60. Vilification <ul><li>Veneration </li></ul>
    57. 61. Conversations
    58. 63. 4.) And, finally, you have to find a way to spare the group from scale. Scale alone kills conversations, because conversations require dense two-way conversations. [Dunbar] found that the MAXIMUM number of people that a person could keep up with socially at any given time, gossip maintenance, was 150. This doesn't mean that people don't have 150 people in their social network, but that they only keep tabs on 150 people max at any given point.
    59. 64. Sharing
    60. 65. Presence Conversations Sharing Relationships Groups Reputation Identity Self Community Activity Rules & Repercussions Purpose/ Passion? Co-Creation? Planning? Caretakers? Collectively Rate? Publish?
