what is social software socialware
What is Social Software? (SocialWare)
  • “Social software enables people to rendezvous, connect or collaborate through computer-mediated communication and to form online communities.”
      • (From Wikipedia, December 2006)
social software definition cont
Social software definition, cont.
  • Broadly conceived, this term could encompass older media such as mailing lists, computer conferencing, Group Support Systems, and Usenet, but some would restrict its meaning to more recent software genres such as blogs and wikis and social networking sites.
  • We will focus today on the “newer” applications, sometimes referred to as “Web 2.0 and “Web 3.0”
social software definition
Social Software definition
  • Common to most definitions is the observation that some types of software seem to facilitate "bottom-up" community development, in which membership is voluntary, reputations are earned by winning the trust of other members, and the community's mission and governance are defined by the communities' members themselves
social software definition10
Social Software definition
  • Also social software systems create persistent links between users, and through these persistent links, a community is formed. The control of these links - who is linked, and who isn't - is in the hands of the user.
  • Thus, these links are asymmetrical - you might link to me, but I might not link to you. Also, these links are functional, not decorative - you can choose not to receive any content from people you are not connected to, for example.

slide21

Diana M. used Dodgeball to introduce herself to someone she saw on the subway, but was too shy to speak to. "I checked in to dodgeball," she said, and "I got an alert that 'so-and-so has a crush on you, and he is at X bar, go and say hi.'" she said. "I now had a valid and less-frightening excuse to meet him," McGunigle said.

"I can't tell you how many people I've met through this," said McGunigle. "It has not only simplified my socializing habits, but has allowed me to meet people I would not have met otherwise."
