Here’s something that I need to put on my reading list. (I have my Project Management exam next Thursday so won’t read it just yet). faberNovel Consulting has just issued a Research Paper on best practices from leading social network websites, which covers MySpace, FaceBook, LinkedIn and all the other usual suspects. Here’s some blurb about it:
Social networks have numerous specificities. A company’s ability to identify and understand these specificities, and offer suitable answers, results in major success within this field. Today, this sector appears mature enough to enable a study of the market’s leading firms’ development in order to identify their “best practices” and to propose a specific framework analysis for each type of website.
I picked up the link from Read/WriteWeb which shows some of the results in the study:
Some other websites have picked up on it and it’s mentioned on Techmeme, but as it’s Sunday, I don’t think it’s spread much yet. Pretty compelling stuff I thought. Get your hands on the research paper here.
