453626 Website with Groups Calendering and Recommendations

Working Title:


Our Goal:

For people to make informed decisions based on the tribal knowledge amongst their trusted group and enabling them to act upon these decisions.

An Intuitive User Experience

This front end needs to be clean and crisp. We need an intuitive, well designed ‘Web 2.0' interface that is ‘natural' to use.

o Simple layout.

o Centered orientation.

o Subtle gradients.

o Soft, neutral background colors.

o Plenty of whitespace.

o Nice big text.

o Big buttons.

o Consistency

o Integrated with other key social platforms

Basic Site Functionality

1) Basic Site Functionality

- Search and Browse (on multiple defined data elements)

o Criteria of search

 Activities

 Recommendations

• Site wide

• Within own groups

 Tags

 Tag Cloud search (?)b

- Create / Edit / Delete Personal Groups

- Rate

o Share rating only (Broadly – With entire site)

o Share rating and comments (Specifically – to trusted group / s)

o Share rating with other social platforms (Twitter / Facebook)

 Integration required which brings people back to the TK

- Rating Approval:

o A system of gaining points for your ratings and thoughtful comments from your friends and the broader community

o Should have layers of status – e.g. Four Square has Mayor, Sheriff, etc. We could use the tribe paradigm for Chief, Founder, Leader, etc. Perhaps allow people some monikers – like American Indians did? “Flys like the wind”, “loves animals”, etc.

o Ratings by key data types:

 Cost

 Quality

 Cleanliness

 Fun

 Safety

 Accessible to Public Transport

- We need to factor in the “proximity” of services. So that services within the specified (5, 10, 20 miles) radius are shown first. Once all of them are shown, then there is a prompt to “widen my search”.

- Need to include maps (which will probably come with base data) and directions and allow the services that we use to be stored in their profile. User shd be able to say “use my current location” to get directions to the activity business.


People should be able to create more than one trusted group of Friends.

2) Admin dashboard for site management

- Link / Unlink accounts to groups
