3 Driving Forces
in *Social Media*


2  style:designer

Social media looks quite messy from technology perspectives

[image1]

3  style:typography

Why?


4  style:smallPicture

"We shape our tools, and thereafter our tools shape us"

[image1]

Marshall McLuhan, media theorist


5  style:designer

We are *reshaped*
by Internet


6  style:typography

How?


7  style:illustration

Driving Force 1:
Decentralization - Spirit of Web2.0

[image1]

Decentralization is about anti-hierarchy, weakening the authority in an unequal-power relationship. The more decentralized a system is, the more it relies on lateral relationships, and the less it can rely on command or force.


8  style:2up

Broadcast decentralized to Peer-to-peer

13  style:designer

Impact of *decentralization*

- Decentralized micro-facebooks for small tribes

- APIs for decentralized service mash-up and widgets

- Brands become media


14  style:illustration

Driving Force 2:
Re/action - Behavior in Social Context

[image1]

15  style:designer

*3R*'s in 3 generations of social applications

- 1G: *Relation* - who you know (linkedin, friendster)

- 2G: *Role* - who you are (myspace self-expression, facebook status)

- 3G: *Re/action* - what you do (facebook news feed, twitter, google buzz, foursquare)

17  style:2up

from Me to We

[image1] [image2]

18  style:highlight

from Proactive to Passive

[image1]

My friend's action (behavior) exposed passively in the trusted social context. I will react by checking out THE PIT movie.


19  style:designer

Impact of *Re/action*

- *"Follow"* the passive behavior - Followers count! Action url matters!

- *Viral* channel formed by acting and reacting

- Re/action *Beacon* disrupts advertising when privacy becomes passe


20  style:illustration

Driving Force 3:
Experience - the 4th Wave after Information Era

[image1]

What is Las Vegas actually selling? Life experience!
The destination of web is not merely information.


21  style:smallPicture

The 4th Wave is Coming

[image1]

In 1980, Alvin Toffler published a popular book "The Third Wave" in that he predicted the future by looking at the evolution of civilization. The 1st wave is about agriculture, the 2nd is about industrialization, and the 3rd is about Information Era. What's the next wave?


22  style:designer

*thank* google, wikipedia, ... and the whole Internet

for turning information into *commodity*

deprive the *privilege* of the information holders

finally, value shifted from human *knowledge* to actual human *experience*

knowledge is *power*?
not anymore...

*experience* is power!


23  style:2up

from Second Life to IMVU

24  style:2up

from Yelp to Foursquare

[image1] [image2]

26  style:narrative

AR (Augmented Reality)

[image1]

27  style:photo

[image1] [image2] [image3] [image4] [image5]

AR is hot in mobile web

Not necessary to tweak reality only

AR may augment experiences by blending virtual and real worlds

Hardware will shrink size eventually

The SixthSense augmented reality system lets you project a phone pad onto your hand and phone a friend -- without removing the phone from your pocket.
