Has the innovative race of creating the next useful social website come to a stop? why? and how long?
The last known Social site that has made an impact is over 4 years old. So there is no social site that has been invented or created, no idea has come to anyone’s creation table since 06. There have been evolutions and “reinventions” of websites, but nothing that can 100% be called creative or new. We have seen Social websites pop up that are clones of or hybrids of other websites, but that isn’t quite creation or new.
Twitter and Jaiku. That’s it. Jaiku is older than twitter. So Twitter it’s self is in theory a rip off of Jaiku. Before that was Joost. Joost of course came out with a messenger when it was first created. You would install Joost so you can watch movies on your computer, but there was also a movie voting system, along with the movie voting system there was also a messenger/chat system. So you could talk to other Joost users who are watching the same movie or tv show as what you are watching.
Today there is one. Only one social network out there that everyone still uses. That social network is the one that all tech people were certain would flop. Facebook. Facebook of course is the website that really wants you to only add people to your friends that you already know. Now that isn’t very social. Is it? It’s more of an address book. Some modifications to Facebook have allowed you to add more features and add more friends, and add annoying nagging video games.
We did see Myspace fall recently. We just saw Myspace build it’s self over again. But no one came to see the new place. The few that looked hated Myspace. because well, Myspace was over bloated.
Chatrooms are completely gone. Forums are all trolled up and spam flooded. Unless someone reinvented the chatroom, that venue seems to be dead.
Revision 3 needs what techtv had. A Live show that people could interact with. like Chris pirillo’s show. Live.Pirillo.com . That would save Revision3. Especially if they did this with diggnation. Maybe once or twice a month
Is communication dying?
If anyone knows of a new social network that seems to be ground breaking or potentially ground breaking, tell people about it. Post it here. I would love to try this social network/ social media.
