💊 Daily Learning: TheNTWKPill “What is a Social Network?”, by Jake Jenner

from TheNTWKTalk “Building Howbout, the social planning app”

Do you want to know what is a social network? Watch what Jake Jenner told to us:


  • It's basically any network that allows people to connect, share and communicate with one another

  • There are a number of different types of social networks that have emerged and this has exploded over the last 15 years. Facebook wasn't one of the first ones but it became the biggest one: it defined what social network was. But we saw an evolution from there

  • What we have seen over time is that Facebook and Instagram, have migrated away from the core point to connect with people I know. And now, people are getting bombarded with stuff from influencers’ Brand, and advertising: it's basically a public content feed

  • There are other companies now which are stepping up to disrupt and to bring back that original social network experience
