iConference: Social Media Futures, Why iSchools Should Care

Originally presented at iSchools Conference 2011, Washington D.C.


Social Media Futures was a 3-day "charrette" at a major university that brought together students with various backgrounds to consider the future impact of social media on business, and to think about what opportunities they might create. However, topics that arose touched on a variety of themes that included social media communities, ownership, privacy and governance of user-generated content on social networks, and how social media may impact education and learning at all ages. This paper provides our observations from this multi-disciplinary charrette, and articulates why iSchools need to be concerned with social media.
