Search SIG Feb. 12, 2008 – The Social Graph & Search

January 31, 2008

Hey, I know it’s been a long time. But we’re getting back up to speed with an awesome event.

Dude, Where’s My Car?  Using the Social Graph / Social Platforms to Enhance Search & Discovery

When: Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2008
Where: Yahoo! Main Campus, Sunnyvale, CA –  Building C. Classroom 5.
Who: Dave McClure will moderate! (more to come soon)

topics to cover:
– platform overviews / highlight unique features of each platform (API overview / features)
– explore social graph search / friend list lookup — as API feature  (on platform vs embedded external)
– discuss targeted search vs serendipitous discovery (search box vs news feed)
– enabling friend lists / social graph lookup from email / IM / other data sources
– opportunities for 3rd-party developers — distribution / viral acquisition / monetization
– review privacy mgmt / data portability — high priority or not?  alpha geek issue, or mainstream?


Register for the event (these fill up fast!)
