Event Description Web 2.0 has brought a new generation of online tools that enable users to network, share resources and participate in discussions on a global scale. This growth in social media is indicative of its entry into mainstream culture and its integration into the daily lives of many. Even in its infancy,social media is having a profound effect on its audience, by offering them new and varied ways to communicate and create - changing their status from user to 'produsers'; breaking the traditional, more closed structure of mass media. New Frontiers in Social Media is an event that will explore how social media will influence our lives in the future. The event will bring together a mix of thought leaders, professionals and academics to answer the questions - How will these technologies evolve? How will they create new experiences for users? and how will they impact social changes? *The contents of this slideshow was presented at a Use8 event and reflects the views of the presenting parties ..

So what about the younger generation who are already used to an increased level of noise?
For a 10 year old, most web brands are already established For a 15 year old, social networks are just another form of communication For an 18 year old, it’s common to have published work
They’re used to having access to instant and free information
