We Have Only Scratched the Surface of the True Value of Twitter. Here’s What You’re Missing

We Have Only Scratched the Surface of the True Value of Twitter. Here’s What You’re Missing | Psychology of Consumer Behaviour | Scoop.it

Here’s three important things to know about Twitter’s future that are more nuanced than “what am I eating for lunch?”

1. Identity
Who are you on the web? Historically you are your email address. You meet somebody and they want to get in touch with you, you have always given out yourname@company.com. That’s one form of identity. But for many public figures that’s not practical. Think about your local news anchor saying, “if you want to get in touch email me at xxxx.” Sure.

And yet Facebook also hasn’t filled the identity space. The reason it didn’t was that the follower model of Facebook started out as symmetrical, which basically means that if somebody friends you, you needed to friend them back. So again your local news anchor doesn’t exactly want to follow back all of her viewers. Not practical. Let alone for Oprah Winfrey.

One of the biggest innovations of Twitter was asymmetrical follower model in which many people can follow your updates and you don’t have to follow theirs

Tweet Beat: Twitter Responses Don't Mirror National Polls - 03/05/2013

"At times, the Twitter conversation was more liberal than survey responses, while at other times, it was more conservative, according to Michael Dimock, director of the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press. Often, however, it was just the overall negativity that stood out for Dimock.
 
Much of that difference can be attributed to "the narrow demographic of the public represented on Twitter," notes Pew, as well as who partakes in the conversation..."

"those who get news on Twitter -- and particularly those who tweet news -- are very different demographically from the public, according to Pew."

"

Q: So what are the biggest differences between the younger end of Gen Y and their older brothers and sisters?

A: They’re moving to Twitter, especially the 15 to 18 crowd. It really seems to be exploding all of a sudden with teenagers. They say, “We’re all transitioning to Twitter, because our parents are on Facebook, and we get a lot of spam on Facebook.” Of course, the numbers are huge for Facebook, and these kids know they need it. They have to check in there; you can’t avoid it. But their intimate conversations? Those are now happening on Twitter. They talk in code a little bit more there, and there’s less pressure to friend your entire school there...'

Thought Leaders Discuss The Future of Curation & Social Media | Psychology of Consumer Behaviour | Scoop.it
We asked Mark Cuban, Dennis Crowley, Gina Bianchini, and more than a dozen others. Here's what they said.

 

This article by Dan Frommer and Jen Ortiz for Business Insider links to a slideshow with quotes from major Social Media company CEOs and co-founders, intellectuals and a Curated Twitter persona, among others about their takes on the future of Social Media. 

 

Here's just one of them, from Dae Mellencamp, CEO of Vimeo:

 

**** "The future of social media is the loss of the distinction between media and social interaction online. Mass media and social media will be seamlessly integrated across devices and platforms to offer relevant, dynamic, personalized experiences for people anywhere.

 

**Discoverability and the import of editorial curation will not be lost, but rather inherently incorporated into the environments for richer and more customized experiences."

 

The full article has many more gems and is well worth a few minutes of your time!
