This is a wonderful talk!
I don't have the tools to judge if this is true, but seems like GOLD!

Guessing this goes into my conversations... :-)
Thanks for this!

+Paul Adams Haven't read your book yet...listening to this interview lead me to a question. If you deny the concept of "the influentials", how do you explain the Oprah effect? Also, I agree that people do tend to be influenced by the people closest to them. However, I feel that while being influenced by this group, at the same time, we try to set ourselves apart and be different then that same close group, finding our own unique influencers. Agree? Any thoughts on this and how it fits in your models?

A book is never done

Writing a book about social interaction is a strange experience because the minute the book hits the printing press, you start to uncover more and more new material that could have been included and you start to think about new things...

First post (linked below) in a series describing five huge shifts that all marketers and designers will need to understand.

The five shifts:
1. The amount of information we can access is increasing exponentially.
2. The web is being rebuilt around people, rather than being built around content.
3. For the first time in humanity, social interaction, and influence, are measurable.
4. Technology is driving a large increase in understanding how we make decisions, and it’s not how we assumed.
5. Mobile technologies (phones, tablets, etc.) will change society in ways we can’t yet predict.

Story
Introduction
Author of GroupedFull bio here.

Hello. I'm Paul Adams. I find out what things people need and care about, and help other people design and build those things. I've been doing this for the last 10 years. I focus on designing for the social web and talk about it on my blog  I work at Facebook and used to work at Google.


I'm from Ireland but currently live in San Francisco. One day I'll move home. I'm obsessed with the Irish football team. I also follow Sligo Rovers and Arsenal, but not nearly as obsessively.
