Expressive Social Network 'SharePlace'


Social Network (also called a "Sharing Network") that Solves Many Problems of Social Networks
This might be the best idea since sliced bread, twitter, and facebook.

  • Users log thoughts and shared posts. 
  • Users create structures of meaning between remixes and recombinations of their posts in a sandbox environment.
  • Users easily agree and confirm a multitude ideas
  • User find new nuanced commonalities and differences
  • Users find new abilities for nuanced expression and opinion
  • Meaning is discovered
  • Expression is preserved and reusable

Most features have dual purposes:
  1. convenient, pleasant expression
  2. forming relational structures between information
The result is that the relational structures of information proliferate into added user value and benefits the more that the social network is used.

In addition, all of these features facilitate monetization competitive with any other social network.

Graphical Modes (Phases)

Two separate meta data structures exist for the same data, enable adaptation to various phases of a creative process.

There are 4 primary graphical modes.


  1. Brainstorm (Phase 0)
  2. Analysis (Phase 1)
  3. Synthesis (Phase 2)
  4. Refinement (Phase 3).
  1. Wiki style
  2. Tweet/Post style
  3. Storyboarding Style
  4. Blog style
 Phases facilitate the creative process in addition to acting independently.


Phase 0: Create (like a Wiki)

  • entering raw thought
    • text formatting
      • tables, bullets, lists, etc.
    • embedding widgets
      • videos, pictures, gifs, memes, sounds, webpage preview links
  • refine information
  • highlighting and creating containers
    • selecting tags
    • creating tags
    • defining and redefining
  • searching information
  • reducing redundancy
Phase 0 can be ignored completely.

Phase 1: Send (much like Twitter)

  • interact with components that behave like tweets
  • accept components defined externally
    • shares from youtube
    • shares from websites
    • shares from urls
    • shares from widgets
    • shares from anything externally defined
  • copy embed links
  • have conversations about
  • copy application's  ID number
  • defining component
    • person (absolute and irreducible)
      • group
    • thing
      • entity defined by set of things
    • time (absolute time)
    • place (more specific)
      • locale or area
    • event (combination of specific time and place)
      • sequence of events
Phase 1 can be ignore completely, or it can be used without any interaction with other phases, much like one would use Twitter.

Phase 2: Relate (guided storyboarding)


  • construct macro connections
  • interact with form data drop-downs and option menus
  • select conjoining terms
    • :: and ::
    • :: but ::
    • :: or ::
    • :: is true however :: is also true
    • :: is still true acknowledging :: must improve
    • while :: is true :: is not necessarily true
    • :: is example/s of ::
    • :: is like/unlike :: 
    • :: resembles ::
    • :: is true as well as/and/in addition to ::
    • :: is parallel to ::
    • :: is the opposite of ::
    • :: causes ::
      • (caused) (will cause)
    • if :: then ::
    • Perhaps :: but ::
    • :: is false
    • :: is true
    • :: is uncertain
    • :: makes :: feel ::
    • :: identifies with ::
    • :: likes/dislikes ::
    • :: about :: 
      • I can like something 'about' something
      • I can identify with something 'about' something
      • implies a sub-component or trait (I like <this> sub-aspect of <this> larger thing)
    • :: because ::
    • :: by way of ::
  • select emotion contexts
    • lots of emotions

    Phase 2 could be used independent of other phases, or completely ignored.

    Phase 3: Charm (like a blog)

    • create presentable information out of former phases
    • create dolled up presentation of information from other phases
    • this is a front-end final product of the other phase
    • Other information and relations serve as parsable web back-end for web data.
    Phase 3 could be used independent of other phases, to use more in the form of posting blog posts like posting Blogger posts on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+. Users can subsequently implement other phases onto your work in order to pick it apart and analyze it.


    Purpose of 1st Two Phases:

    The purpose of having these two phases is to create endless recombinations of information in one phase is to have the benefits of redundancy in one phase (phase 1), but to eliminate redundancy in the other (phase 0).


    Phase 0: is a substrate of ALL components and remixes. It is supposed to serve as the non-redundant, ever-present repository of referencable construction. Endless remixes of text and embeds can be made from recombinations of Phase 0 information.

    The user interacts with this Phase much like a very long set of blog posts or a very long word document separated and entitled by input date/time/instance. The user inserts images, writes text, embeds widgets, and creates tables and lists.

    Phase 0 has multiple rationales. It is about:
    • allowing users to input information in brainstorm form
    • allowing users to go back and change raw information
    • provisioning one single, simple repository of information
    • serves as a search-able reference document
    • maintains a sense of time-frame and history
    • facilitates version and history control in one source (like MediaWiki)
    Phase 0 allows users to highlight material as in a wysiwyg editor, and create tagged containers around any combination of materials.

    Although Phase 0 is foundational to everything else - it can be completely ignored by the user if the user so chooses. The importance of Phase 0 is to act similar in a way to browser history, but also in the way of a database.

    Phase 1: is a modularization of combined information bits from Phase 0 and the web. Unlike Phase 0, Phase 1 is supposed to be redundant.

    Nothing in phase one exists except as a reference to information in Phase 0. Everything is a substitution or transclusion of containers that are defined in Phase 0.


    User Component Equivalences

    Users can equivocate components to others' defined components.

    If a user uses the auto-create component feature of a video site like YouTube, where the video becomes a user component defined by the video's unique embed link, then all contextual relations constructed in phase 2 CAN show up as varied perspectives on that video to others who are consuming that video.

    • users can opt in or out of accepting universal id numbers for individual videos, memes, pictures, article urls, etc.
    • Users can opt into equivocating a component to another user's component
      • persons
      • places
      • events
      • things
      • videos
      • pictures
      • sounds
      • songs
      • anything!

    Derived Meaning and Plains of Meaning

    Because components in Phase 1 can be reused in multiple stories, and contexts created in Phase 2, multiple web-maps of relationships are created on multiple plains.

    Unexpected connections can be drawn from more use of Phase 2.

    In addition to derivations of meaning occurring for multiple components defined  by one individual, derivations of commonalities and differences can be drawn between the components of different users. Users can discover similar beliefs and tastes and perspectives and insights on share, overlapping similarities.




    Phase 0: Raw Expression Phase

    This is a timeline thread of raw information input by the user.
    Phase 0 becomes much like an opt-in history of web activity and thought.
    It is essentially one long document of anything and everything that you want.
    • long text
    • headings
    • bullets
    • numbered lists
    • expanding sections
    • inserted pictures
    • tables
    • data values
    • statistics
    • pie charts
    • embedded:
      • videos
      • pictures
      • memes
      • audio
      • webpage links
      • (anything you can tweet)

    Phase 1: Modular Component Phase

    • This is unordered components of information that look and behave much like tweets.
    • This phase consists of components created from Phase 0 and web buttons, which buttons would presumably be included alongside other similar share buttons for social networks. ie: Google+, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook
    • All components translate into references to Phase 0.
      • If data is sent directly to this phase, then it is created in Phase 0 automatically, to serve as a reference for Phase 1.
