Check out my guest post on The Guardian’s Data Blog on the current state of social data applications. There are what seems like a ton of them but none of them have really taken off (yet).
While the post is more of an overview of what’s available, I’d like to start a little discussion here on why these data apps haven’t gained more popularlity. There always seems be a lot of buzz around launch time, but then it fizzles.
Are people just not interested in interacting with data or do we need to approach the whole social data puzzle from a different angle?
