Is it about social networks, stupid?

November 15, 2007 at 12:14 am 1 comment

OK, it is everywhere BUT actually I only connect to the people I already know from the real world. (Right, I have 2 friends on Facebook that I havn’t met, but that’s an exception). What we are looking for is to get to know people from all over the World who are interested in the same things as us, that’s when the tables are starting to turn. I found this great blog entry about Inbox 2.0 and Google/Yahoo taking on Social Networks, but what’s even more interesting is this comment. I cite some of it here:

I would give you my profile. I will tell you my likes my dislikes, my favorite books and movies. I want the Google computers to find me other IGoogle users or Myspace users or people on these OpenSocial sites with similar or identical likes and dislike and display them on my page. I will use Cooloris to sniffer through it quickly.

I want the list displayed by how close they match my profile 100 percent. I want to be able to say that I choose not to see any profile that is below 85% match.

If IGoogle finds someone that matches my profile 100% down to the same theme and same widgets on our IGoogle page, then this person is someone I should definitely meet. I would send these people friend requests and see if they accept. I could also use it to find people that are complete opposite of myself.

And yeah, that’s what this blog is all about: Now that we are all connected, what do we do next?

    You know exactly what comes next. We do what comes natural to humans, we scew each other over. 🙂

    Or, we get a shitload of commercials, directed at us based on all that personal data we’ve given away on facebook. It’s amazing how many Viagra pills and fake rolex wristwatches we appear to need.
