The stream of new products and services continues to flow this week… this time it’s Facebook with their newest offering aimed at helping you manage and share your personal photos. Their new “Moments” app is designed to help groups (friends, families, etc) share photos in private pools. That, in and of itself is not really new. This weeks discussion focuses instead on the rapid pace of these new apps and services… all with the goal of convincing you to use their products to manage your precious memories.
It’s no longer a matter of which app sucks less. They’re all pretty amazing, each in their own way. It has now become a matter of personal preference, and where the bulk of your relationships reside. THAT is the new battle. You’ve heard of the attention economy… now as the battle to getyour attention, and keep it continues to heat up — our personal photos are amazingly strong “superglue” that social networks and other companies are looking at to get you stuck to their services, and to keep you coming back.
