Social Networking service designed around Warrens instead of Plazas (Warrens vs Plaza) to try and counter BigWorld Pathological patterns.
Combo of ideas
- teens are leaving Facebook for Group Messaging, they don't want to be public
- Social Networking is toxic because it's all positive-feedback-loop
- Social Networking is dangerously toxic because they're a near monopoly, so "censorship" is a bigger deal
But if people move to more closed Group Messaging (Semi-Social), will they lose the benefit of "meeting" new people/ideas (InterestGraph)?
Is there a model that is "private enough" and not interaction-steroids, but still allows/supports "discovery" of "interesting" people/ideas? Because that's huge.
