The Conversation Prism debuted in August 2008 to provide a visual representation of  the true expansiveness of the Social Web and the conversations that define it. In thisshort time span, over one million people have crossed its path.When Jesse Thomas of JESS3 and I initially mapped “the conversation,” we recognizedthat the act of categorizing social networks within a visually rich graphic would bemomentary at best, demanding endless iterations in order to accurately documentevolving and shifting online conversations as well as the communities that promotethem.

The Eloquence of the Conversation Prism and Social Science
The inspiration for its inception derived from a consistent observation of top-downmethodologies and practices of brands, professional and personal, employed to create apresence on the social Web. Simply stated, brands focused on building presences in themost popular communities without regard to how they would attract inhabitants andultimately interact, let alone whether or not their core ambassadors were present.The Conversation Prism suggested a reversal in this approach, instead inspiring abottom-up strategy that promoted social research, mapping, and ethnography.

 You + Me + Mutual Value = <3
People aren’t lured into relationships simply because you cast the bait to reel them into aconversation.Sincerity extends beyond the mere act of creating a profile on Twitter or forming a fanpage on Facebook or a group on LinkedIn. The dual definition of transparency servesvery different forms of both genuine and hollow separated by intent and impression.Relationships are measured in the value, action, and sentiment that others take awayfrom each conversation. Talking “at” or responding without merit, intelligence, or qualitygrossly underestimates the people you’re hoping to befriend and influence.If participation were this simple, then perhaps everyone would excel as a Social Media“expert.”It’s the difference between community and a halfway house; one will flourish, while theother will shelter transients, never building a thriving citizenry.Identifying connected communities and observing the themes and culture of eachprovide entrée into the personification necessary to foster a genuine and equalecosystem for dialogue.
