that the focus on making things easy for common users -- make it work for grandma, as I frequently advocate -- could be misguided. Since power users make the majority of searches, a search engine that targets power users could attract a majority of searches without attracting the majority of visitors. However, there is some debate in the comments to John's post about whether Jeremy measured the right thing. What matters most is not the number of searchers, but the ad revenue from those searches. It is unclear whether these power users who are making the majority of searches are actually the most profitable visitors. Some ...
We Are Living In A Free Love Society « ambercanales
In a rather illuminating article in the latest Trendwatching brief, the discussion is about FREE LOVE. It’s about businesses offering goods, services or experiences to consumers for free and making their money from other things. Prime examples that come to mind are the home printers that are dirt cheap but where you have to take out a second bond on your property to pay for the ink cartridges. Although the Trendwatching brief works through various examples such as free-sheet newspapers, magazines, free landline, VoIP or mobile calls, free airline travel, free car rental and much more, the one most interesting to me was the ... market research, surveys and trends
Blizzard's Real ID System: The Aftermath « Virtual Navigator
from its plans to implement a requirement that all posts on its discussion boards be signed with the author’s real name.  The Real ID system, the company claimed, would be a way to reduce harassment and spam by trolls (people who ‘troll’ through discussions and post defamatory, inflammatory or otherwise disruptive comments, using anonymity as cover).  I’m certainly not the first to cover the story, not by a long shot , but I wanted to take an opportunity to examine why Blizzard felt that this move was prudent and why the movement toward a unified identity online probably won’t die out, no ... market research, surveys and trends

" -- so there were several attempts to come up with a compact understanding for what is and is not "collective intelligence". The simplest definition came from Kim Rachmeler at the end of the second day: The network knows what the nodes don't. This nicely captures the idea that the sum has to be more than the parts. There is an emergent property to collective intelligence where problems can be solved that might be difficult to solve any other way. More detailed definitions came from some of the other sessions. One interesting question was whether massively parallelizing a task across many humans -- ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Facebook Got Its $15 Billion Valuation
When a startup shows an estimated $150 million in revenue, isn't wildly profitable, and doesn't have a clear revenue model, no company in its right mind would give it a $15 billion valuation -- except, it seems, if we're talking about Facebook. Could Facebook defy business norms? Could it really be worth enough to give its founder, 24-year-old Mark Zuckerberg, a fortune estimated at between $3 billion and $5 billion ? It all depends on the company's success at building an advertising network, details of which the company is expected to announce on November 6 . With all the dreamy-eyed developers and ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Advertisers offer new way to opt out of targeted online ads
search. Then, you read some reviews and check prices on shopping sites. Suddenly, you see ads for computers while reading the news or checking movie show times. Or, how about this one: You're on a national news site. You only see ads for events and businesses in your area. Situations like these are not mere coincidences. Advertisers are increasingly using targeted advertising to serve online ads. They check Web browser cookies to see what sites you visit. They use your computer's IP address to learn where you live. They may see your Facebook groups. They can get a large amount of data from a variety of sources. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How effective is link building through Twitter and Facebook? What ...
In my opinion mouth to mouth is still the best branding a company will ever get, so if it was in some way possible to reward or motivate customers to advertise in some way through sites like facebook, I suspect it would give very positive marketing results. However, the costs of tracking and setting up a marketing push like that would most likely demand a lot of expence and research.
