Conversation Prism: The Language of Human Connections is International

When Jesse Thomas of JESS3 and I started to lay the foundation for the Conversation Prism, we realized that it was a much larger task then simply categorizing social networks and placing them within a visually-rich graphic or chart. My goal was to observe, analyze, dissect, and present the dynamics of conversations, how and where they transpired.

We immediately realized that V1 would be short-lived and the need for continual iteration in order to document the evolving conversation online would emerge inevitable. As we work diligently on V2, as well as developing a supporting, scalable ecosystem, friends all over the world are simultaneously documenting the language and architecture of global online conversations.

In advance of our impending announcement, I wanted to spotlight the valuable work of those around the world. The Conversation Prism is now available in French, Chinese, and Japanese, with each localized to visually demonstrate the unique channels of online discussions materializing respectively.

    Very nice.Any plans to have a “Conversation Prism” for India ?

  2. Rebecca Caroe says:

    Reading Mayank’s comment – why don’t you allow download of the template so that niche areas / geographies / industries can make up their own prisms using your IP?

    I see the labels on each petal are different for each country. Why is this?
