Cool social media – Ford Fiesta Movement

I truly believe that social media does not just exist on the web. It takes virtual interaction + real interaction + real-world events/actions.

A great example of a company using this is Ford.

Facebook food for thought – No. 4

Facebook has sold a 1.96% stake for $200m (£126m) to a Russian internet firm, a move that values the social networking website at $10bn

$10bn for what? Access to a massive list of customers that engage with each other, that love your platform…

Lots of spin-off businesses will come from the alliances that are being formed with Digital Sky Technology’s (DST) and Microsoft. A quite clever, ‘traditional’ approach to business in the modern world. Where will this go. My predications:

  • Facebook announce another 2 or 3 aliances in the next 12 months
  • Joint spin-off products come out within 12 months
  • IPO within 18 months

Money on the barrel-head – let’s go…

Hold ’em or fold ’em?

Inside Social Games gives us a look at the top 25 Facebook games at the moment:

Texas Holdem Poker has a choke-hold on the top spot. So popularity is fed by basic human elements of needing to feel exhillerated by the win or the chase to fame, fortune and recognition. Let’s also look at the design of the app:

Profile pictures + simulated dealer chat (just as much personality as Vegas dealers if you ask me – lol) + real-time chat + competition + real-to-life game play seems to really work.

The onboarding process keeps this compelling through showing how many of the people in your network are already playing and offering advice and/or a shotcut straight through to the experience:


So what does this tell us about designing Facebook apps:

  • Real-world simulation can work if you keep it authentic
  • The social elements must be there – from chat to visual to audio stimulus
  • You are on a winner if you play to human psychological needs such as self-actualization
  • Building initial demand and then letting it go viral is important
