Daily Thoughts 02/17/2013

I finished reading Design and Launch an Online Social Networking Business in A Week.  This book is about how to design a standard social network in a short amount of time using a service like Ning or Onesite to provide the back end technology.  It is for people who have an idea like having a social network for dogs, a dating network, or a network based on common interest like comic books.  It is mostly focused on the marketing side of the business and how to get customers.

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.

I am reading Building Social Web Applications by Gavin Bell right now.  There are two concepts that I have read so far that stand out.  The first is that there should be a single focus to your network; for example Flickr focuses on photographs, or focuses on music. The second is why do people keep coming back to your site?
