Alright. We never promoted our page (actually never had one!) on MyBlogLog/SU/Orkut etc, with a strong belief that the best communities are the ones which are loosely tied and come together for a common cause.
To me, community isn’t about follower/following, but its all about creating engagement based on topics of common interests (no point in starting a group to discuss a broader topic like ‘what can we do to promote entrepreneurship in India’. Sorry, not for me!).
Given the interaction/insight that our reader-friends share, I was forced to create some of our social media footprints (actually a few of you kept suggesting us to have a Facebook page, for a better mode of communication).
And most importantly, collecting insights from the community is my goal behind creating these social media presence (we don’t want to create another walled-garden socionet, so lets use the existing ones).
Our social media footprint
- Facebook page
So why join this page? Well, I plan to share some of real life puzzles/questions here (for instance, why so many VCs have American accent?) and most importantly, a few design related stuff that I cannot publish at NextBigWhat.com. Why don’t you share some of your stuff?
Twitter is linked to our feed, but then we don’t want to be another media company (well, Indian Media still doesn’t get Twitter ) that keeps pushing our feeds and add no extra value. At twitter, we share a few interesting links/quotes and sometimes, even jokes.
- Google Friend Connect
The easiest one to connect, if you have a Google id (stop reading, if you don’t! 🙂 ). While we let Google figure out what next with Google Friend connect (what use cases does it cater to?), we do have a Google Friend Connect widget (embedded).
And ofcourse, a permanent page: Are we Friends?
