    I learned about your site after visiting the Stanford “Creating Apps For Facebook” group on Facebook. After learning more about the course and apps that the students developed, a central theme is clearly the use of metrics to identify and trigger iteration points.

    I’m curious as to what metrics proved to be the most valuable. Did the students identify any metrics that really provided them with great data for making specific changes to their applicaitons?

    All the best,

    @Sarah — yes, that’s exactly right. We really emphasized the use of data (both quantitative and qualitative) in guiding product decisions. I think a core lesson about social apps and viral engineering is that there really *isn’t* a single “silver bullet” metric that app publishers can/should focus on. Instead, we tried to present virality as the product of many discrete variables that each need to be measured and collectively optimized.

  3. Hey, I learned about you after reading about your disasterous Skype situation within the NYTimes. I am sorry, they treated you wrong, and there is no excuse. I wanted to ask what’s your next venture, and did Skype atleast give you a decent salary before you left?

  4. Yee, I have dealt with the managing partner in silverlake on one occasion and all I heard spewing from his mouth were 4 letter words and crass language. Its a reflection of his upbringing and disrespect for people. I am hardly surprised with your views.
