Human behavior as it applies to social networks

this isn’t the story

this is

mostly true

Human nature doesn’t change. Human behavior does.

our needs are basically the same

technology doesn’t make us social

it influences our behaviors

media is micro

print radio broadcast digital from past revolutions

to present

how has our behavior been influenced?

we stopped consuming media

and started producing it

we’re sharing our ideas openly

and giving away our secrets Sharing our ideas openly

we’re building our personal brands

and becoming micro-celebrities

while celebrities become more like us

our social circles expand

from intimacy to ambient intimacy Source: Reach Cards Robin Dunbar’s threshold of maximum number of individuals “Ambient intimacy is about being able to keep in touch with people with a level of regularity and intimacy that you wouldn’t usually have access to, because time and space conspire to make it impossible.” ~Leisa Reichelt

as we manage our “friends”

and contacts

a perfect storm…

our worlds collide

my boss is on facebook

we’re streaming our lives

and deaths…

we experience collectively

…participatory Over 136 million pageviews More than 21.3 million live video streams since 6am 1.3 million concurrent live streams

our communication is becoming effortless

and instantaneous

micro-social economics are niche

nearly anyone can influence

especially within their niche

the social web thrives on it

social economics have equity

connections are currency

Whuffie has replaced money, providing a motivation for people to do useful and creative things. A person's Whuffie is a general measurement of his or her overall reputation, and Whuffie is lost and gained according to a person's favorable or unfavorable actions ~Wikipedia

currency gets spent

finding support in networks: micro- philanthropy

Over $11,000 in 2 days

566,144k members. 14,244 wall posts. 1 cause.

we relied on institutions individual institution

we rely on each other individual networks

networks as human filters

search provides information

networks can filter signal from noise

moving toward a people powered web

“I believe that people would rather have a conversation with a person than a brand.” ~Scott Monty, Ford Motor Company

humans not optional

are we coming full circle?

“more human than human is our motto” ~bladerunner

insights into behaviors lead to innovations

innovations help people

“Same as it ever was” ~Talking Heads
