Hatena-Tube

My maimiku Ben pointed me to Hatena-Tube in his diary inside mixi. YouTube popular videos rated by bookmark inside Hatena, the social media services, somewhat like del.icio.us, in Japan. Doubt if all the videos here not copyright infringing. Among them,

The way toward my mixi request (a.k.a., maimiku request)

In mixi, people get to know each other gradually. Like any other SNS, in MIXI too, somehow it is important to express the self by uploading photo, decorating profiles, and joining communities, and exchanging messages with the new friends. Ashiato

MIXI account setup

Update^3: Sorry folks Update^2: Someone, actually one of my maimiku, told me that such mobile mail address restriction applies only to IP address allocated to Japan. Hence no such restrictions to apply otherwise, it seems. Update: For those who are

mixiGraph

While I have not been explicitly conscious about mixiGraph until a few days ago when one of my MAIMIKU, Ben, introduced it in his diary at mixi, I would say mixiGraph is such an amazingly powerful tool. It shows the

A proposal for MIXI

Since I started reading Naked Conversations by Robert Scoble (not yet finished, because I am very slow), I have been wondering how a blog can be used as a corporate communication tool, especially as a customer contact center. One of

What can mixi do for you?

MIXIについては、ずっと懐 疑的であった(っていうか、今でも)僕ですが、つい最近、”退会予告通知”のようなものをもらいました。なんでも、一定期間以上にわたってまったく活動が ないとか。そう言われると、向きになる性格で、活動してみました。(←実際、うまく乗せられました) ようするに、マイ・ミクシイというお友達登録が0だったんですね。ずーっつと。で、もともと紹介してくれた人となかなか連絡もとれずに、なんとかコミュニティに参加して、そこの人にマイ・ミクシイにしてもらい退会は免れました。 それにしても、紹介制度という心理効果なのか、みなさんすごーく積極的(特に女性)というか、びっくりしました。たしか200万くらい会員がいるとかなんかで読みました。 そのなかでも、気になったコミュニティをいくつか(会員数): -B型至上主義(5,035) -ラーメン二郎 (4,111) -自由が丘 (3,319) -WBLS (83) -Quiet Storm-WBLS 107.5 NYC (23) -ジャックラッセルDOTん◎(11) まさに、いろいろな”切り口”がありますねぇ。とてもロングテールなものを感じ(↑ぼくと全く同じコミュニティに入ってる人は200万人中2人といないです)、つくづく感心してしまいました。人気の理由に納得いたしました。 でもなぁ、ただ、Mixi内側ならばオープンで積極的になるけど、外側ではなれないというのは、幻想だとは思うけどなぁ。かえってあぶないんじゃないかな内側のほうが。。 update: こちらはPart IIです。(英語) Squidooで”What can MIXI do for you?“というLensをはじめました。 Technorati tags: Mixi squidoo orkut Social Networking SNS ミクシィ gree ashiato maimiku
