Social Networking and Google+: A Historical Perspective

Social Networking and Google+: A Historical Perspective

This video was recorded at 6th International AAAI Conference on Weblogs and Social Media (ICWSM), Dublin 2012. This talk explores the early origins of (offline) human social networking for clues into what the future of online social networking will hold. Andrew will distinguish between tools for lightweight maintenance of social connections versus tools for completion of tasks. He will give a concrete example of this distinction in the context of Google+, and finally, will walk through some classical and some new problems in the field.
