Editor's Notes

  • Turning to social network MySpace and using publicly avail- able data, they searched for fellow bacon aficionados and found over 35,000 people mentioning bacon in their profiles (Qualman 2009). John and David reached out to these folks in order to gauge their interest in bacon-flavored salt. Their conversations ignited interest and, before a product was even created, people placed advance orders. Easily finding the right people in hefty numbers and leverage- ing social network communication tools, these guys created buzz that spread conversation outward; they remain committed to so- cial media today with presences on MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.[1]
  • While social media alone does not ensure reach, stories about this innovative project in traditional and digital media amplified project news, created awareness, spawned word of mouth and spurred participation. Ad Age reports that ‘in the two weeks starting Aug.3 2009, the site had 67,000 unique visitors who submitted 1,700 ideas, and more than 40,000 comments were posted on twitter’. As we write on October 18, 2009, the MIO site has garnered 6,683 ideas from 9,301 participants and 1,823 comments in seven categories – general, safety, design, propul- sion, ergonomics, materials and infotainment.
