Summary
Drawing on his analysis of proprietary data from social media sites, Piskorski argues that the secret of successful ones is that they allow people to fulfill social needs that either can't be met offline or can be met only at much greater cost. This insight provides the key to how companies can leverage social platforms to create a sustainable competitive advantage. Companies need to help people interact with each other before they will promote products to their friends or help companies in other ways. Done right, a company's social media should benefit customers and the firm. Piskorski calls this "a social strategy," and he describes how companies such as Yelp and Zynga have done it, providing not only a story- and data-driven explanation for the explosion of social media but also an invaluable, concrete road map for any company that wants to tap the marketing potential of this remarkable phenomenon

Summary
Author Piskorski analyzes companies that are social media leaders. A basic understanding reached is that the successful platforms offer ?social solutions,? where a solution allows one to meet new people, or to share private information or social support in existing relationships. The social needs being filled online, he finds, are failing to be met in the offline world. Piskorski compares the functions, history, nature of traffic of different social media platforms--Facebook, Twitter, EHarmony, LinkedIn, OKCupid, MySpace and mixi. Then he investigates choices faced by LinkedIn in 2005, and studies the failures and solutions of that company in particular, along with others. In the end, he has developed as principles for thinking about social media the ideas of social failures, social solutions, and social strategies. Piskorski believes his key innovation has been to argue that firms can lower costs or increase customers' willingness to pay by investing to build social solutions that get people to interact and effectively undertake corporate tasks for free.
