Social Networks Editorial Brief (Initial Thoughts)
So these were my initial ideas on the social networking brief, after reading the article I was trying come up with some metaphors and realised it was pretty much impossible to come up with something that hasn't been done before, so I thought I'd just go for it. The web was a metaphor for the growth of the social networking sites, how they steadily get bigger as more members join. The different colours represent how the website is expanding.
The birds in the tree was a simple metaphor for members of the Twitter website, and the tree was another metaphor for a network in general. The other idea was very simple, emoticons (the little smiley faces) joined up in some sort of network.
