Sociable Labs (A)

By Arar Han, Russell Siegelman
2012 | Case No. E435A
Sociable Labs was conceived as a start-up business attempting to use friend recommendations to curate and recommend purchase opportunities on the internet. Much as his Facebook social events app helped friends discover events based on their friends’ events, founder Nisan Gabbay wanted to show users what their friends were buying or “liking,” in the hope that such knowledge would help guide their purchases and even enable merchants to use Facebook to help grow their sales. How would he discover what his customers needed and what they were willing to pay for? This case is available for purchase from ECCH.
