Hey, a Social Media book with NO CODE! LOVE IT!
The strategy for a SUCCESSFUL social web project is CLEARLY explained in “designing for the social web”.
Joshua Porter did a great job in each and every part of this book including colorful images to help convey key points so you can easily understand and create your successful social web strategy.
I work as a professional technology consultant and have been working the social web before it got all it’s cool buzz words. I’m sure you have heard them too, Web 2.0, AJAX, Rails, Social Media, E2.0, Enterprise 2.0, Gov2.0, Cloud Computing, & many more. Next time you hear someone talking about Enterprise 2.0 (E2.0) or any other buzzword of the day, ask them what it means. “What is Enterprise 2.0?” If they start talking about ajax, sharepoint, php, or other technology, then ask someone else. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love all these buzz words, they help get all our hard work in the voice of mainstream media. The buzz & hype of the social web force some things to market before they are ready or ever needed. This IS NOT the case with Designing for the Social Web. This book was carefully crafted for your enjoyment.
There are a lot of books, blogs, software, and other resources about the social web. Most of these are based on theory or focused a certain technology. Josh shares his expertise from the REAL WORLD with a focus on WHY! I hope you don’t make a mistake by not reading this book.
Please invest the cost of a couple cups of coffee into yourself and read this book.
