This morning, I set up an Open Phweet around the Future of Social Computing, triggered by Jan Chipchase’s paper called Future Social, and my subsequent feeling of reinforcement and validation around a study we recently did around the future of Mobile Social Computing. It’s been an interesting day, talking to a few people who joined my Phweet Cafe on this! Am going to keep it open for a few days more!
@whitelight007 on Twitter then asked me – what’s my take on the future of social networking. Had to keep the words to the bare minimum given Twitter’s 140 character limit so here’s what I said in two tweets and edited down here to:
“Networks based on & layered around location, access, presence & context. Those that enhance real-world interactions. Enabling choice, privacy and control”
Do you believe this is in the zone? Makes sense? What’s missing? Would you like to share your shot at describing your perception of the future of social networking in say 140 characters?
Come and discuss it! All you need is your Twitter ID and password to enter the conversation.
