Social networks enhance our real lives

Social networks enhance our real lives

In the 90s, Reid Hoffman built his first startup, SocialNet. He asked himself questions like "How do you form connections?" and "How do you bring people together around common interests?".

Even though SocialNet failed, he got this insight from it: "We're all trying to navigate our real-world lives. We're not trying to go to cyberspace. We're trying to have a rich and interesting life where we live and where we work. So we're trying to improve our real identity, our real relationships, and navigating the world around us."

Outlook on social networks

Outlook on social networks

Reid Hoffman invests in networks and companies that, as people get into them, the value is added to their life by the other people in the network. Examples of investments:

  • Flickr - photo sharing
  • - music sharing
  • Zynga - game playing
  • Facebook - social network

He works and hopes for a society and a set of networks by which we'll make each other better. We learn how to improve ourselves and each other through connections, dialogue, collaboration, and working together. He wants to build services and technologies that allow us to become our better selves as we help each other do so.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
