LinkedIn and Facebook Prediction Market November 19, 2007Posted by Bernard Lunn in social networks.
I posted Read Write Web about recent LinkedIn momentum from my personal experience and then responded to the Facebook fans with a Poll where people can predict who will win this game.
Seeing the results will be interesting. I have made a note in my Blackberry calendar to check what has happened.
The data from these kind of prediction polls could be valuable if done on a big enough scale. People will tend to contribute as everybody has a secret Nostradumus just itching to show how they can foretell the future. In a market where the prediction of enough people actually impacts the prediction that could be interesting.
