Defining Social Network Sites We define social network sites as web-based services that allow individuals to construct a public or semi-public profile within a bounded system, articulate a list of other users with whom they share a connection, and view and traverse their list of connections and those made by others within the system. The nature and nomenclature of these connections may vary from site to site.

construct a public or semi-public profile within a bounded system,

articulate a list of other users with whom they share a connection, and

view and traverse their list of connections and those made by others within the system.

The nature and nomenclature of these connections may vary from site to site.

The conversation needs content

We discuss news stories, TV programmes, films, politics

Traditional media is a starting point

Can also keep the conversation lively

The commercial model is less obvious

We don’t know how to make money out of Web 2.0 either

A Free Content Movement? Like Free Software Develop code Give it away Make money on service, support and the rest Can the media work like this? Could it justify the licence fee or something similar? Will it attract advertisers?

Wm Gibson and Cyberspace

Minority Report and gestural interfaces

Imagine Tomorrow’s Media Growth of SNS Blurring of online/offline boundaries Destination sites less important Aggregators provide pointers to content Lose the home page Content sits on servers Available to all for linking and embedding Feeds the continuous conversation There’s no newspaper there, it’s everywhere.

Growth of SNS

Blurring of online/offline boundaries

Destination sites less important

Aggregators provide pointers to content

Lose the home page

Content sits on servers

Available to all for linking and embedding

Feeds the continuous conversation

There’s no newspaper there, it’s everywhere.

Be there too Join other people’s conversations In blogs and photo feeds and websites In chatrooms and virtual worlds Across the social network sites Be part of the debate Don’t try to own the conversation Don’t assume people will come to you Don’t look for simplicity We still don’t know where this is going

Join other people’s conversations

In blogs and photo feeds and websites

In chatrooms and virtual worlds

Across the social network sites

We still don’t know where this is going

Don’t forget to play Watch the skies Get there first with the cool stuff Experiment and take risks Move fast, spend little Join the sites Learn how they work Share your experiences

Watch the skies

Get there first with the cool stuff

Experiment and take risks

Making the unlinkable, linkable
