From Social Networks To Market Networks

From Social Networks To Market Networks | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

First we had communication networks, like telephones and email. Then we had social networks, like Facebook and LinkedIn. Now we have market networks, like HoneyBook, AngelList, Houzz, DotLoop and Joist.

You can imagine a market network for every industry where professionals are not interchangeable: law, travel, real estate, media production, architecture, investment banking, personal finance, construction, management consulting and more. Each market network will have different attributes that make it work in each vertical, but the principles will remain the same.

Twitter co-founder Evan Williams: ‘I don’t give a shit’ if Instagram has more users

Twitter co-founder Evan Williams: ‘I don’t give a shit’ if Instagram has more users | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

If you think about the impact Twitter has on the world versus Instagram, it’s pretty significant. It’s at least apples to oranges. Twitter is what we wanted it to be. It’s this realtime information network where everything in the world that happens on Twitter—important stuff breaks on Twitter and world leaders have conversations on Twitter. If that’s happening, I frankly don’t give a shit if Instagram has more people looking at pretty pictures.

The Future of Social Media Is Mobile Tribes

The Future of Social Media Is Mobile Tribes | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it
The first generation of social media touted "networking", but the next generation, raised in always-on connectivity, will embrace ephemerality and digital tribalism. Those users will abandon the major social networks and migrate to more granular mobile villages with simpler ecosystems. They will follow a small circle of close friends on Instagram, pin with a small handful of followers on Pinterest, message with a girlfriend or schoolmate on WhatsApp or Snapchat, or follow a co-worker's check-ins on Foursquare.

Käyttökokemus ratkaisee verkossa

Käyttökokemus ratkaisee verkossa | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

Viime vuosina käyttökokemus (user experience, UX) on noussut ratkaisevaksi kilpailutekijäksi, joka erottaa verkkopalvelun muista. Valta verkossa on asiakkaalla ja he ovat muuttuneet yhä valikoivemmiksi sen suhteen, millaista kokemusta he vaativat. Verkkopalvelun tulee olla miellyttävä ja helppo käyttää, kaunis, nopea ja funktionaalinen. Hyvä käyttökokemus koukuttaa käyttäjät palaamaan sivustolle ja suosittelemaan sitä verkostoilleen. Se rakentaa positiivista brändimielikuvaa, jonka arvo voi olla mittaamaton.


Mistä on hyvät käyttökokemukset tehty?

Ennen portfoliota tarvittiin lähinnä vain luovilla aloilla. Tulevaisuudessa portfolio tai blogi voi olla työnsaannin edellytys lähes kaikessa asiantuntijatyössä. Osaaminen pitää lyödä tiskiin tai muuten kukaan ei usko, että sellaista on olemassa. Läpinäkyvyys toimii, mystinen sumuverho ei niinkään

Verkkosuunnittelun trendit 2015 – mitä sinun tulee tietää? | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

Verkko muuttuu kiivaasti ja jo vuodessa ehtii tapahtua paljon. Mobiilikäyttäjien räjähdysmäinen kasvu, sosiaalisen median leviäminen verkon joka sopukkaan ja käyttökokemuksen korostuminen ovat suuria pohjavirtoja, jotka heijastuvat verkkosuunnitteluun. Jos sivusto on suunniteltu 3-5 vuotta sitten eikä sitä päivitetä säännöllisesti, se ei todennäköisesti ole enää kilpailukykyinen.

Verkkosivustolla on nykyisin merkitystä enemmän kuin koskaan, sillä ostopäätös tehdään yhä useammin verkossa. Mitä sinun siis tulisi tietää verkon kehityksestä? Mitkä ovat verkkosuunnittelun trendit 2015?
