I integrated social features into an online virtual world – Twinity. Twinity is similar to Second Life, only it models real cities, brings in real information (ie wikipedia, etc) and real locations/ places. Increased user sign-up and social interaction within the platform.
Tiny pictures was an early mobile social image sharing service. I did some work with them helping to define and design their early Mobile Web experience. It was acquired by ShutterFly in 2009.
