Rise Of Community Driven Networks
With the rise in community driven networks and crowdsourcing initiatives, technology is providing answers to problems which were previously deemed complex at a social scale. Moreover, the proliferation of mobile devices and ubiquitous internet access has provided a medium for the masses to connect, collaborate and share information on the fly. From crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter to professional networking services like LinkedIn, the social technology landscape holds tremendous potential for growth through improving communication and media consumption experiences across the globe.
Data-Driven Social Apps
Data is at the heart of any social application. For instance, as per an estimate by SocialPilot.co, on Linkedin: approximately 25 million profiles are viewed every day, users conduct around 1 billion searches daily, and 94% B2B organizations use the Company Pages feature for content marketing. In addition, various interactions in the form of likes, comments, and shares of business content (LinkedIn Pulse articles, status updates, Slideshare uploads etc.) occur at high-speeds and high-volume, all the time. From an advertising perspective, the platform also enables marketers to serve ads based on various user attributes. Accordingly, the increasing number of user roles and features increases the structural complexity and the amount of data exchanged over social apps.
Back-End Processing For Social Apps
Likewise, the back-end processing of social apps needs to be able to handle the incoming volume of data. Identifying the right technology stack while keeping in mind future requirements of scale is essential for the success of any social app. Therefore, organisations who want to venture into the social media space must opt for software solutions which are:-
- Adaptable as per evolving user needs
- Scalable to accommodate rapidly growing user bases
- Interoperable with third party services
- Efficient in resource management

Featured Case Study
Social Canvas Cloud App
Given the multitude of social networking platforms currently being used, users face challenges such as: ease of organizing rich multimedia content based on event/topic, effective management of content, ease of sharing within interest groups, and automated promotion of content on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other social sites. A new cloud social app, Kanvz, overcomes these challenges by providing a single platform where users can join friends, family and peers in curating compelling stories, collections and events from multiple sources. The basic construct is a ‘canvas’ which can be shared with invited contributors.
