Monday, January 8, 2007 : The Jungle Makes Money

Recently I read a lot about MySpace. I even visited that jungle. Yeah, it's the most famous jungle with its users climbing to reach 100 million in the near future. If you read results from a related survey you can find that most of the teenagers use that jungle to play and communicate with friends. May be, some of you are wondering why I call it a jungle. Well it won't be difficult for anyone to randomly browse 5 public profiles and see that at least one of them is so so ugly, but who cares? It's popular! Some people even claim that myspace is even more popular than Madonna and Beatles. Do you think so?

MySpace is even in the top 5 of the most poor sites in some competitions. In fact, what do you think means to be thought for totally bad and at the same time to have millions of users. Well in my view, it's just good politics. There are so many "poor pages", that is because every one can easily make his page as his bedroom and invite there whoever he wants. Even without worrying how big are his friends` heads (most social web pages limit avatars/pics to be as big as 100x100 or smaller).

Well it looks like giving all the freedom to your clients/users is a great business strategy. If you browse the web you will find a lot of people talking against myspace. Yes, myspace could be called a jungle, however it's the jungle where every one is free. And as a result making millions of dollars. Are you an entrepreneur or just a manager of a service ? If yes - take into account the freedom of your clients.

Besides giving the user freedom, they should be given an opportunity to imagine. I mean meny options should be available and the combination of them should be countless. This way more users will find what they look for.

In this day and age, businesses are afraid of freedom that the customer already has.
