This is one of several belated posts from the past week.
The recurring theme of advice, or new potential markets to consider, from the class this past Monday (2/27) was that of social networks. Now we realize that it is futile to try and create the next big social network. However, the use of a niche social community to act as a means of increasing user engagement and retention, and to enhance the core value (increased happiness/awareness), was an interesting idea. Although we had already incorporated certain social aspects through game-mechanics (social pressure), we did not consider the larger effect of connecting diabetics.
Therefore, in addition to testing the revenue streams, we will also be testing the idea of a diabetic community to exchange knowledge and experiences.
