Twitter prompts “What are you doing?” Facebook asks “What’s on your mind?” Should we be surprised that people produce a stream of self-absorbed updates?
We are more connected than ever, but are we really connecting? What if we could organize people around ideas, rather than a stream of personal updates?

The Ecology model uses a tree metaphor to demonstrate a more effective social media structure that is more organic, visual, and organized.
