IxDA NYC requests the pleasure of your company at our November event, "Built
For Conversation: The Interaction Design of Social Media Networks" by
visiting speaker Will Evans. Our host for the evening will be the generous
people of HUGE.

RSVP: http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/1283042/?ps=5
Attendance is limited to 125 people.
Only those on the RSVP list will be admitted (please bring photo ID).

TALK DETAILS
"Built For Conversation: The Interaction Design of Social Media Networks"

Social Media Networks, because they are built on the collective
participation of individuals, can only be effectively guided by means of a
researched and learned examination of social psychology. It is the
interaction designer's job to understand how social media ecosystems are
likely to evolve, given the interaction of the application constraints with
users -- each of which with their own goals, prejudices, social ties, needs
for sociality and irrational decision-making.

Design choices affecting application design, functions, and features can
only steer individual and aggregate participation within the social network.
This talk will begin with the basics of social psychology as it pertains to
social media and networking sites and give a brief overview of identity
creation in the context of social networking theory.

We will discuss design patterns in social media site architecture and their
impact on human behavior, and why interaction designers engaged in building
social networking ecosystems must leverage sociology, social network
analysis, and behavioral economics to ensure their social media site is
Built for Conversation. Time permitting I will discuss two case studies -
why social media/networking functionality failed on Kayak.com, and why it
succeeded on Gather.com -- lessons learned the hard way.

Phillip,

I'm digitizing the video as we speak. We'll get it posted ASAP and
share the link here.

Thanks again to Will, HUGE, the NYC F2F organizing team, and everyone
who came out and who logged in to the stream.

Thanks,
JS

Will,

Will you plan to post anything to SlideShare, etc. for those of us
who were unable to attend?

Awesome, thanks. Wish I could have been there, but last minute
flights were a bit pricey. :)
