About the Project

The Team:

Dana DiMaggio, Gita Ram, Amanda Boyce and Tim Neff

The Project:

Failed Networked Collaborations

About the Project:

Why did MySpace fail? Why did Friendster collapse? Our project will take a closer look at networked collaboration failures through the lens of these once-popular social media sites. By applying course materials, we will dissect the causes of the collapse of these social networks. Lessons learned from this examination will be applied to Google+ in an attempt to answer the question: Will it succeed where others have failed?

The project will use this associated blog, where project materials such as videos, sound clips and other media will be posted. In addition to this blog, the team will use regular Google+ Hangouts to collaborate. A PowerPoint presentation will also offer an overview of the team’s findings.
