Venture advisor Christine Herron is one of the 2 top women in technology that knows apps / Web 2.0. (The other is Emily Chang). In her latest post, Christine writes up 5 Key Strategic lessons for App Developers for Facebook (complete with astounding stats).
I'm not a developer (and I don't want to be), but the lessons for me were as follows:
- Prepare for the worst.
- Remarkable or Fun.
- Make it Easy to Use. Period.
These are universal lessons. Creating a service? These apply. Run a business? These rules apply.
