  5. SOCIAL, NOT INTERACTIVE, NOT VIRAL 06.29.2010 | P5 © MSLGROUP
  6. This list is focused on “social” platforms and programs. “Social” is 1 not the same as “interactive” or “viral”. 2 In “interactive”, people interact with the website or the application. In “viral”, people merely share a pre-produced video with other 3 people. In “social”, people interact with other people, and the interpersonal 4 interaction forms the core of the website or the application. So, games and immersive web experiences are often interactive, but 5 not social. Similarly, advertising, applications and web serials on social 6 networks are often viral, but not always social.Social is not the same as interactive or viral © MSLGROUP
