Meerkat & ‘Slow Graphs’

Bootstrapping off another social network is “fast graph” -> you get quick set of connections but they aren’t specific to your use case

“Fast graph” also can lead to less commitment from users bec they put no time into actually permissioning, etc

“Slow graph” uses find friends, contact list, etc but makes user choose who to follow. Slower growth but a graph native to the service.

Snapchat is great example of Slow Graph. WhatsApp too. Meerkat can focus on Slow Graph — doesn’t mean slow growth, means native connections

Basically, w/o twitter, meerkat has smaller chance of going 10x in a week but IMO better chance of being 100x in a year.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
