It’s the viral thing stupid!

Filed under: Social Networking — nogbad @ 21:18
I’m in a hotel, hooked onto my BT Openzone wifi connection and chunking through some mails. Twitter is burbling away in the background. I spotted a tweet from Laura about niche social networks.  That sort of stuff floats my boat so I clicked the link and liked what I saw. Of course I want to share that with a wider audience so I shared it on Facebook. Laura had included a Slideshare-hosted presentation by Lee Bryant, Niche Social Networks FTW!

and my point really is…………..

A network came into being to transmit  Lee’s presentation to a wider audience.I know the network was already there but the synapses snapped and this was deemed worthy of transmission – there is a decision process in here somewhere. There is an “added value” in that we (Laura and I) have implicitly said that we think this is worth sharing. The benefit to Laura and me is that if our readers think we’ve not wasted their time our status within the network is enhanced or, at the very least, it’s reinforced. We also benefit in that others will share this type of stuff with us because we’ve signalled that it’s of interest.

These messages are whizzing round the Internet and we’re creating/reinforcing our niche social network.
