Quick thought

Three most important (potentially game changing) social media concepts. IMO

Presence – the ability to immediately share my state of being, including my location, from anywhere.

Ownership – the ability to own all the data you are creating. Such as your social graph.

Moments – using the data you have been (or facebook as been) collecting to digitally travel back in time and get a keen sense for what was going on in that moment.

…ok, heading to the Funding Symposium.

  1. Yeah, from talking to you and reading articles on the interweb it def seems like those are the long term trends on the web…at least in the tech community. Who knows if those will translate into the wider market of ideas and usage, right?
    I went to the talk about trend forecasting I told you about, and there was definitely a process of trends being invented (or innovated), of people seeing those trends, early adopters and then wider or widespread adoption…and at every turn there is a ‘gate keeper’ someone who decides to adopt or not…and of course the book tipping point by Malcolm Gladwell…like what is it that finally tips the scale? Will twitter, or twitter-like apps ever attain the status of facebook?
    I don’t want to sound like an expert here I’m new to social media but even though it seems like such a niche its actually a vital part of the world in general and exemplifies other processes that are happening, mostly driven by technology….
    Anyways back to work. Interesting post
