LinkedIn Today: Has It Avoided The Ping Effect?

The acronym “YASNS” is well-known in web geek circles. It stands for Yet Another Social Networking Service. In 2011, perhaps the acronym should be “YAUSNS”: Yet Another Useless Social Networking Service.

Even large, otherwise successful tech companies aren’t immune to YAUSNS. In September last year, Apple launched a music social network called Ping.

It’s basically ‘Twitter for music,’ however it’s been a fizzer – despite being imbedded right into iTunes. Another company at risk of what I’ll now call The Ping Effect is Amazon, which released Kindle Profiles in March of this year.

It’s a social network for reading, but so far it hasn’t set the world on fire. A commenter on my Google Plus profile called it “The Ping of Books.”
