Take A Step Back to Make Sense of the Present and Inform the Future
WikiCurve lets you have your say in a way that is easy for decision makers to understand
WikiCurve is a way for the crowd – anyone and everyone – to explore an issue at depth, to become more informed, share events and engage to build our insights into the topic. The WikiCurve provides a framework for the community to build the picture of events that have shaped an issue’s public acceptance. WikiCurve lets you have your say in a way that is easy for decision makers to understand.
There are so many opinions on issues in social media but without a context it can be difficult for organisations to make sense of them. WikiCurve enables each issue to be mapped, by experts or any member of the community, to produce a timeline of public acceptance of the issue. The map turns events into a pattern of steps to mark the evolution of an issue. The developers of the WikiCurve, consultancy Futureye, identified a 6-step sequence for how an issue builds from a radical concept that challenges the status quo to a part of the status quo. By the time the issue progresses to the status quo it has reached social maturation where the idea is a “norm” or enjoying mainstream acceptance and those who hold a view counter to it are sanctioned through poor reputation, regulatory or political action. Organisations need to know where mainstream opinions and attitudes are in the sequence to determine if their approach is appropriate.
Unlike a poll or a survey, which can be limiting, WikiCurve deepens debate by providing the history of events, opens up the debate by providing a structure for it and ignites conversations on the past, present and future. The insights produced are rich and the information meaningful. It’s your world, so it’s your turn to deepen your knowledge on a topic and engage more meaningfully in our society.
