A Social Network, Part 6

by The H.E.A.T. Exchange

Deciding on a platform for a social network (the constraints on the behavior of its members) is just the first part of a challenging situation.

There must be encouragement and enforcement.

Claiming to subscribe to a particular platform and then acting against that claim is something comically associated with the actions of politicians. As evident, this is not a good thing.

Since interaction amongst members is the most important part of a social community, community leaders must first foster an atmosphere of positive open expression. How people express themselves is a secondary concern.

Getting people to interact and communicate creates opportunities to develop different ways to communicate.

Without communication and interaction, blogs, photo galleries, video channels, and the like will become nothing more than barren wastelands of content.
