What makes a good social object?

From Jyri Engestrom co-founder of Jaiku:

"Question: What makes a good social object?

…a few questions that might be useful to ask when evaluating the potential of something to be turned into an online social object.

  • How well does the potential object yield itself to breaking it down to structured data?
  • What data points to pick?
  • How often do people generate new instances of the object?
  • How much social gravitational pull does the object have? "
