The best idea start-up can have is solving somebody’s problem. It is much better when the idea happens to bother a lot of people.
The many people are bothered with the same problem – the much money you can earn by implementing the solution.
So, where do you have communities of bothered people? :)
Right! I am talking about life hacking sites!
Good luck and have a great problem solving!

Facebook is not an ultimative viral mechanism. It is just a transport layer for you smart ideas worth spreading.
Idea – first, social – next.
Answer by Andrey Petrenko:
There's nothing to do with Facebook features – this is the biggest mistake.
Facebook brings nothing.
Your business idea is the only key for virality.
Facebook is just a convenient platform for sharing to public.
All of the features you may implement give similar results, or let me put it differently – any of the feature will do the viral job for you if the following conditions are met:
- Your Web service gives cool feeling to a visitor
- The visitor feels cool about sharing the service with friends
- The visitor's friends are potential users of your site's coolness too.
A site that sells diving supply will receive nothing from Facebook shares. How many friends of yours are into diving? None!
A site that provides good deals on restaurants will get huge viral support (in case these deals are true and unique value).
Don't waist your time on Facebook if you don't feel friends of your friends might be interested too.
GlassDoor is not followed because of "aggressive" sharing but because of unique value it gives to customers.
