  1. Designing Social Interfaces

    Jared Spool interviews Erin Malone and Christian Crumlish, authors of the new book, Designing Social Interfaces. An outgrowth from creating the Yahoo! Design Pattern Library, the book is a perfect repository for anyone planning, designing, and building social aspects into their applications.

    Jared discusses several points with Erin and Christian, including,

    • How the book became a huge collection of social design elements and how people are using Designing Social Interfaces in the wild
    • Could a better understanding of social design patterns have helped Google launch Buzz with less blowback?
    • Expecting to build a community on your site, versus leveraging existing communities (for example, Facebook Connect)
    • The growth of social in new contexts (mobile, new audiences)
