The consulting unit of faberNovel has shared one of its social network research papers. The first part of the paper outlines some broad principles for understanding social networking websites, the second part of the paper provides case studies about online matchmaking websites Meetic and Match.com and the third part of the paper provides cases studies on business network websites Xing and LinkedIn.
Good to see faberNovel incorporate and build upon Fred Cavazza‘s excellent work on digital identity mapping. With Le Web 3 being held in Paris later this month it is timely and sure to provide a useful conversation starter at the event. A full copy of the research paper is available here for download.
