    • Social networks are nothing new what's new is how easy it is for a message to travel along them.
    • The speed of message transmission along the social network is dropping with each new technology Spoken language, Printing press, phone, email, cell phone, Instant message, SMS, etc.
    • The speed of invention of new technology is itself increasing - we can expect nearly frictionless communication.
    • This makes good ideas really contagious.

    • The goal of any Internet advertising campaign or product is to Go Viral - to catch on in such a way that the number of people it reaches grows exponentially.
  • 13. Going Viral : The Core Ingredient
    • Provide Value

    • Massive reach depends on value and trust .
  • 14. Going Viral : The Technical Aspects
    • Make it easy for someone to pass the message on.
    • Make it easy for the recipient to perceive the value of the message. Grease the wheels.
    • Provide every way possible for a person to
      • put it on their webpage,
      • integrate it into their existing networks
      • send it through email.
    • If users generate content, make sure the path from viewing content of others to creating content of their own is as easy as possible.
  • 15. Closing the Loop : An Exercise
    • A large Jewish organization focused on building leadership designed a web application that lets users create their own map of the Jewish world arranging mug shots of major players on a set of concentric circles, showing who they feel the important players are.
    • The way they set it up, a user goes to a website to 'play'. If they want to recommend it to a friend, they can send the friend a link to that website.
    • Why did they do this? How could they have done it better?
  • 16. Word of Mouth Automatic
    • Word of mouth has always been the most effective marketing channel.
    • Why? Trust.
    • Social networks show you what the people you trust are doing, what they support, and who they trust.
    • Word of mouth automatic and authentic.
  • 17. Word of Mouth Automatic: Example
    • PresenTense creates an open event on Facebook for their Thursday night panel discussion.
    • Ariel, Aharon, and Eliezer all invite a few hundred of their closest friends.
    • People who are attending RSVP in the positive.
    • Both people who were invited and people who were not explicitly invited are informed of the event if more than a couple of their friends RSVP that they are coming.
