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

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?

“The future’s here, it’s just not evenly distributed yet.” Is it free? Is it quick & easy? Is it cross-device & multi-channel? Is it everyday? Does it bring people closer together?
