Designing Social Interfaces:
Principles, Patterns, and Practices for Improving the User Experience
by Christian Crumlish and Erin Malone
This book presents a family of social web design principles and interaction patterns that we have observed and codified, thus capturing user-experience best practices and emerging social web customs for web 2.0 practitioners.
Can’t wait until September? Get a rough cut (and we mean rough!) copy now.
Contribute to the companion wiki with new patterns, comments, examples and your ideas. You’ll find most of the patterns and other related material.
