(15:38:35) Vanlal: we're having a discussion on how to filter content in a social network
(15:38:38) Vanlal: http://www.plurk.com/p/z0ph
(15:38:55) LJ: i want to start a blog - a collaborative blog on marketing
(15:39:02) LJ: i'm looking for - uh - collaborators
(15:39:43) Vanlal: cool. Got a hook?
(15:39:56) LJ: not yet
(15:40:13) LJ: dude, twitter has what plurk and pownce and all others dont have - momentum
(15:41:11) Vanlal: you're missing the point.
(15:41:20) Vanlal: people move with their social nets
(15:41:36) Vanlal: Mine has decided that Twitter doesn't work for us
(15:41:43) LJ: hmm
(15:41:43) Vanlal: and we've all de-camped
(15:41:53) Vanlal: which is true.
(15:41:54) LJ: well you have a good online social web, so it works for you
(15:42:21) Vanlal: twitter is great for the A list bloggers who have millions hanging on their every utterance
(15:42:49) Vanlal: Theycan broadcast freely. With Plurk you're forced to listen to feedback.
(15:43:29) Vanlal: I've found that most bloggers aren't concerned about feedback, they just want to publish their **ORIGINAL** thought out there ASAP
(15:43:56) Vanlal: original being a huge overstatement
(15:44:11) LJ: yup
(15:44:23) LJ: see thats why i am not yet hot on microblogging
(15:44:33) LJ: i dont see a real use in day-to-day life yet
(15:44:41) LJ: and i dont find it pervasive
(15:45:32) LJ: my linkedin network is best positioned to make use of such a rapid-conversation tool, but they dont have it
(15:46:07) LJ: plus unless twitter/ plurk can work beautifully on my mobile device it is virtually useless
(15:48:18) Vanlal: what'd make sense is a service that marries itself into an existing social network.
(15:48:49) LJ: exactly
(15:49:01) LJ: which is why i said, LinkedIn is crying out for one
(15:49:10) LJ: it is the perfect network - useful
(15:49:40) Vanlal: Take your linkedin example with plurk for example. Integrate plurk and you can have asynchronous conversation with your linkedin network
(15:50:01) Vanlal: useful for you - corporate stud/whore :-) Not for everyone else
(15:50:22) LJ: lol
(15:50:44) LJ: well, most of these soc nets have open API's - wht stops plurk from integrating with facebook!
(15:51:59) Vanlal: That's the whole point. Sell that concept to FB & Plurk
