“Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.” — Eleanor Roosevelt
Nowadays there are social networks for every kind of “minds”.
“Small minds”, who want to discuss people, can join Arsebook network.
Arsebook is an anti-social utility that connects you with the people YOU HATE. upload blackmail material or publish lies • get the latest gossip from your fiends • post videos on your profile • tag your fiends • use privacy settings to hide your info from enemies • join a hate-clan to disturb people who live, study, or work around you
Following are the social networks for “average minds”:
Mashable has a post that briefly discusses about social networks for events. Another new social network for events launching at DEMO this week. This one is based around recommendations from friends. I like Attendio, but seriously, how many of these do we need? Rivals include MingleNow, ILCU and many more.
Spigit Event Platform: Spigit for conferences is an easy way to increase attendee involvement, promote speakers, improve feedback and create a quantifiable way to determine the successes at your conference. spigit is a smart, social collaboration platform that promotes interaction and is an easily configurable tool for capturing what your attendees really think about what is happening at your conference.
Social networks for “great minds” are the following:
Read/Write web has a post about Crowdsourcing and it explains about networks where people discuss ideas: At Cambrian House, people submit ideas for software products and then vote on which ideas are the best, commenting on changes or improvements they would like to see made. Development of the most popular ideas is then sourced to members of the community, who earn “royalty points” that determines how much each contributor makes. Cambrian House can be looked at as a commercial spin on the classic site, halfbakery.
CrowdSpirit is a very ambitious project that aims to utilize crowdsourcing to develop and bring to market tangible, sub-$200 electronic devices (think MP3 players, digital cameras, or game controllers). Community members will decide what the product is, from concept to design to technical specification, by submitting and voting on product and design ideas. Winning ideas will then be funded by members of the community – and after prototyping and beta testing, the completed products will be delivered to market.
Another such network is Spigit Innovation Platform:
Spigit for Innovation allows for entire organizations to participate in the process of innovation. spigit’s smart, social collaboration platform allows groups to build communities around targeted and firm-specific areas of interest, where employees can propose new ideas, share their opinions and expertise, and influence the best ideas for company consideration. spigit captures every interaction and calculates validity of content and reputation of users based on level of contributions, quality, and community feedback. Through technology, collaboration, and advanced analytics, spigit helps companies identify the best new ideas and key contributors, providing managers with deep insight into their organization and market tested ideas that can assist in making key decisions for innovation.
