Designing social spaces
Giving life and commitment from users can be an issue for most web sites, also our own. In constructing an effective and sharing web the design process is vital, as there is special issues that diversify it from normal web design efforts.
NRK (norwegian broadcasting cooperation) have a blog called NRKBeta where they share ideas and news from one of the content kings in the Norwegian landscape. NRK is developing a new intranet and asked via NRKbeta the readers to sugest nice features and social media inclusion on the intranet.
One of the comments was on the book “Designing Social Interfaces“. That book have an collective web page with a lot of goodies on how social medias are designed and how one can use the theories behind the social web to design other collaborative web sites.
There is a lot to read and learn.
