Doing More With Less Since 1972

Facebook Product Development Process

  1. Get on Twitter and find 10-12 things that are successful (Instagram, Snapchat, Google Reader, Vine, etc.)
  2. Write these onto slips of paper and put them in a hat
  3. Pick a slip of paper out of the hat
  4. Try to buy that thing
  5. If you can’t buy it, build something kind of like it and sloppily integrate it
  6. Go ahead and start a group people can join to complain about the change

I will give them credit for trying out some new things like Timeline and Home for Android. Maybe not the most successful features, but at least they were different and showed some creativity.

I will also admit that for creating videos, Instagram>Vine. The problem is, for consuming videos Vine>Instagram, and most of us (especially me) should stick to consuming video instead of creating it.

The Facebook UX is an absolute train wreck.

Daily Reading List — January 11th

A Runner’s Rules – "You can't plan for great runs. They just happen." Hells to the yeah.

A Parent’s Take on Snapchat – It's actually pretty genius–make people think what they are doing is being wiped away forever. Sell them that story. That's the story they want to hear. Doesn't really matter if it's true or not, right?

Google+ is not a Social Network, but a Social Layer – Will go ahead and say it again, but I think it's a conclusion people are going to have to come to on their own…unfortunately for them.

Google+ Photos Get Pan And Zoom Functionality, Letting You Really Explore High-Res Photos – They're adding stuff at a break neck pace. I know you don't use Google+. I also know you are using it all the time and just don't realize you are.
