Seberapa Jauh Anda Mengenal Nama-nama di Buku Alamat Anda?


JANJI dari networking di era web 2.0 adalah kesempatan untuk mengenal lebih dalam dan kesempatan yang setara bagi setiap orang untuk mengenal “dunia kecil” di sekitarnya. Juga kesempatan untuk ikut membangun, membentuk, mewarnai, dan mempengaruhi “dunia kecil” itu secara keseluruhan. Ini adalah dunia yang sangat dekat dari Anda. Just a few click away. Bukan “dunia besar” yang diberitakan di media-media nasional, cetak maupun elektronik, yang berjarak dengan Anda. Bukannya tidak mempengaruhi kehidupan Anda, tetapi berita-berita dunia besar tersebut nampaknya masih jauh dari jangkauan kendali Anda, saya, dan orang-orang biasa lainnya.
“Dunia kecil” ini merupakan “tempat bermain” yang menyenangkan. Kita diundang untuk saling bertukar segala macam informasi, bahkan tentang bagian dari diri atau mimpi kita yang paling sepele, dengan “kita” yang lain dari segala penjuru dunia. Hanya dengan menekan tombol rss feed, sharing, rate it, link it, dsb, Anda bukan hanya mengaitkan diri secara pasif dengan “dunia kecil” di luar Anda. Dengan memanfaatkan tombol-tombol tersebut Anda telah mengetuk pintu rumah tetangga Anda dan siap untuk masuk ke dalam sebuah percakapan panjang.
Dari seseorang bernama Ilker, misalnya, yang saya temukan secara tidak sengaja di technorati.com, saya mendapatkan informasi tentang social networking website bernama Peopleized. Berikut review Ilker tentang website tersebut yang saya kutip langsung dari thethinkingblog:

Are you bored of current social networking sites which offer more or less the same common features? Are you looking forward to find a more sincere way of communicating with bloggers all around the world? Do you like the idea of being promoted by promoting others? If you answered yes to the questions above, then here is good news for you because the way you look at social networking websites is about to change.

Peopleized is a social networking thinking website which is based on a very simple yet genius idea; connecting people by encouraging them to make interviews with each other. This way users develop a better relationship than any other social networking sites. They ask each other any questions they want and share the interview with others.

After the interview is finished, it is published in Peopleized. All members have the right to vote on each interview. The most favored interviews are highlighted. Users are free to copy and paste the HTML code of the interviews they like and publish them in their blog. Similar to link exchange for SEO optimization, this is another way of exhanging links for both sides.

Top 10 Benefits of Using Peopleized:

  • There is no star blogger in Peopleized. Every member is unique and has the same rights. Peopleized’s motto is “todays small fishes are tomorrows whales.”
  • It is a real niche opportunity when compared to other social networking websites because it is based on developing relationship by making interviews and sharing them.
  • The more you make interview, the better and more popular blogger you will become.
  • Develop close relationship with bloggers all around the globe by promoting them. This is a great way of creating a win-win situation.
  • Select remarkable and interesting characters to make an interview. Invite them to Peopleized and ask them great questions. Chances are you will then be listed in the “Most Favored” list drive a lot of visitors to your site.
  • Accept interview requests. Be sincere and open when replying the questions. This will build trust with you and your audience.
  • Copy and post the interview in your blog. Kindly ask the other side to do the same. This is the smartest way of exchanging links.
  • Kindly invite your readers to sign up with Peopleized and ask you questions. This will spark good quality communication within your audience.
  • Use this opportunity to build trust amongst your community.
  • Play Truth or Dare?

Dan, sejauh ini, saya menemukan beberapa hal menarik di sini. Salah satunya adalah Adria, seorang mahasiswi dari Massachussetts-US, yang sedang mengembangkan art community project yang disebut In Cinq. Dalam wawancara yang dilakukan oleh pengguna lain di Peopleized, Adria menjelaskan tentang proyeknya itu:

I’m building a virtual international photoblog of poetic self portraits called “cinqpics.” (9 words + self portrait = cinqpic). Everyone is invited to participate. My goal is to build the most unique collection of self portraits in the world.
