Watch Davide Casali’s “Social Experience Design” talk at Interaction’13 | IxDA Conference

Too much focus on external metrics will harm in the long term the effectiveness of your social strategy as well as your company as a whole. Changing the focus to deal properly with social dynamics requires a deep understanding of a few critical factors. This talk will show a hands-on social experience design method to deal with this complexity and achieve the change projects need, plus some supporting use-cases supporting them. This presentation is an evolution of Social Experience Design without Hype, with more insights gathered in the last year where Casali presented the same concept to companies and startups.
