I’m a pretty heavy social media user, and I’m very curious about what’s up.
Nathan Jurgenson has done some very interesting work.

I’ve written quite extensively about my thoughts on social media on the ReferralCandy blog: Social Media. I wonder if these thoughts are a little dated, or if I could summarize them succinctly.
Social media is what happens when everybody gets the ability to publish information in a publicly accessible domain. It’s interesting to think about how Twitter started out as a microblog service, and Facebook started out as a social networking service. Neither could’ve foreseen that they would’ve become global nervous systems of information – that only came once the adoption was widespread.
