Definition: Slow Product
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Slow
I was googling for a definition of Slow Product for my Slow stash.
"Our growth is organic, which means that our growth is driven by product quality and the evangelism of our users and customers, not by pure virality or broad public media-based sharing."
So a slow product is one that grows by word-of-mouth (examples: Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, Instagram).
Not one that grows by pure virality or paying for ads (examples: Groupon, Zynga). This happens on iPhone a lot: What are some methods used by viral iPhone apps to get installs?
