What Is Social Networking

What Is Social Networking Wikipedia: A social network is a social structure made of nodes (which are generally individuals or organizations) that are tied by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as values, visions, ideas, financial exchange, friendship, sexual relationships, kinship, dislike, conflict or trade.

??? Let’s start with talking on Web2.0

Web2.0 Wikipedia: "Web 2.0" refers to what is perceived as a second generation of web development and web design. It is characterized as facilitating communication, information sharing,interoperability, User-centered design and collaboration on the World Wide Web. It has led to the development and evolution of web-based communities, hosted services, and web applications. Examples include social-networking sites, video-sharing sites, wikis, blogs, mashups and folksonomies.

Web2.0 Everyone associates it with Tim O’reilly Next slides are taken from

Web 2.0 By Example

Web 2.0 Topics Web as a platform Harnessing collective intelligence Data is the next Intel Inside End of the software release cycle Lightweight programming models Software above the level of a single device Rich user experiences

Web as a Platform Netscape vs. Google

Web 2.0 Design Patterns The Long Tail Small sites make up the bulk of the internet's content; narrow niches make up the bulk of internet's the possible applications. Therefore: Leverage customer-self service and algorithmic data management to reach out to the entire web, to the edges and not just the center, to the long tail and not just the head.

Web 2.0 Design Patterns Data is the Next Intel Inside Applications are increasingly data-driven. Therefore: For competitive advantage, seek to own a unique, hard-to-recreate source of data.

Web 2.0 Design Patterns Users Add Value The key to competitive advantage in internet applications is the extent to which users add their own data to that which you provide. Therefore: Don't restrict your "architecture of participation" to software development. Involve your users both implicitly and explicitly in adding value to your application.

Web 2.0 Design Patterns Network Effects by Default Only a small percentage of users will go to the trouble of adding value to your application. Therefore: Set inclusive defaults for aggregating user data as a side-effect of their use of the application.

Web 2.0 Design Patterns Some Rights Reserved Intellectual property protection limits re-use and prevents experimentation. Therefore: When benefits come from collective adoption, not private restriction, make sure that barriers to adoption are low. Follow existing standards, and use licenses with as few restrictions as possible. Design for "hackability" and "remixability."

Web 2.0 Design Patterns The Perpetual Beta When devices and programs are connected to the internet, applications are no longer software artifacts, they are ongoing services. Therefore: Don't package up new features into monolithic releases, but instead add them on a regular basis as part of the normal user experience. Engage your users as real-time testers, and instrument the service so that you know how people use the new features.

Web 2.0 Design Patterns Cooperate, Don't Control Web 2.0 applications are built of a network of cooperating data services. Therefore: Offer web services interfaces and content syndication, and re-use the data services of others. Support lightweight programming models that allow for loosely-coupled systems.

Web 2.0 Design Patterns Software Above the Level of a Single Device The PC is no longer the only access device for internet applications, and applications that are limited to a single device are less valuable than those that are connected. Therefore: Design your application from the get-go to integrate services across handheld devices, PCs, and internet servers.

The New Yorker, July 1993 The New Yorker, September 2005 We blog Something has changed in the Web during this decade of online history… At the beginning it was all about being online; now it’s about socializing the online environment.

We Media - The citizen’s assault to Main-Stream-Media Participatory journalism is living its renaissance powered by the “credibility crackdown” of traditional media (MSM) and it’s reaching its own “technology perfection” through this new social media that are blogs, and that “vigorous communication subspace”, emerging within the Web itself, that is the Blogosphere.

Wikis: the ultimate collaboration tool A wiki is a web application that allows users to add content, as on an Internet forum, but also allows others (often completely unrestricted) to edit the content. The term Wiki also refers to the collaborative software used to create such a website. In essence, the wiki is a vast simplification of the process of creating HTML pages, and thus is a very effective way to exchange information through collaborative effort. (Wikipedia)

Social Software Social Networking Keeping your contacts online trough a web interface with a useful representation of them. Social Calendaring Shared agendas for events arrangement and meetings planning. Social Bookmarking Your links and references to different kinds of resources live online. Social Tagging (Folksonomies) An unintentional, collective effort of categorizing the Web, with added social significance. Socialware,, BlogMarks, Wists, LinkedIn, eConozco, Orkut, 43Things, flickr... always in “permanent beta”, offering open APIs and keeping certain level of ‘hackability’ as an enabler for improving USER INNOVATION.
