Social Media and Social Computing:
Progress, Opportunities, and Challenges ****

** **

Summary Due: 24th November 2012 ****

Article due: 1st February 2013 ****

** **

The rise of social media and its use has been phenomenal, and yet to reach
its plateau. Social media is now overshadowing traditional media and
communication and is substantially transforming the way organizations,
communities, and individuals interact, gather information and perform their
routines. Encompassing a wide variety of information technologies, it
connects not only users but also other objects in ways that were
unimaginable till a few years ago. It also spans a large area of activities
that differ in content, purpose, and user profiles. ****

Reports on real world events are propagated much faster within the network
of social sensors and social media continues to play a substantial role in
supporting collective actions. The ubiquitous availability of portable
devices that are always connected to the Internet, and easy-to-use social
network applications make it possible for us to get connected to - and
continuously contribute to - massively distributed online information. ****

Social media brings a host of opportunities as well as presents some unique
challenges. Social media is being harnessed innovatively in business,
education, healthcare, government, law enforcement and more. The next
generation of social media will be more sophisticated with rich features
and innovative interfaces and will enable collaboration and
interoperability. We yet don’t know the full potential of social media and
how we can exploit its untapped potential. We also need new models of
computing, called social computing - approaches and methodologies to
process vast array of information scattered in social media and to
satisfactorily address some of the growing concerns on social media
applications. Further, effective mining, analysing, aggregating and
exploiting information sourced from social media is an open and exciting
challenge. To better exploit the power of social media, several technical,
organisational, societal issues and challenges needs to be better
understood and addressed. ****
