I have an interesting assignment at work. I am on a team who is building a new online social network. My duty is to flesh out the feature set and logically figure out how it all works so that the designers and programmers can build it.
I’m basically designing what the site is supposed to be and how it will work.
It’s going to end up being very web 2.0. We have some incredible designers and programmers who can pretty much build anything I can imagine.
This is an awesome project. I’m really excited about. We’re basically building a new myspace or facebook but with a major twist.
For those of you that use social networks (xanga being a social network itself) have you ever thought about what you would do differently? What features you would include to make it better? How you would completely change it?
I’m not asking for ideas. Believe me I already have a ton of them. And the client is paying serious cash for those ideas and giving us pretty much complete creative control.
I’ll keep you guys posted when the new site launches.
But I will say one thing. If this new site takes off, which it should considering what it will be. I’m going to have something really powerful on my resume. I mean imagine if on your resume it said you were the designer of facebook. The person who put together what it would be and how it would work. That would be a very nice thing to have.
