Social Networking, the “Third Place,” and the Evolution of Communication REPORT

, United States

Abstract

This white paper discusses the premise that technology not only mediates interactions, but is actually changing the nature of communication itself. This release marks the first in a series of topical papers associated with the NMC’s Series of Virtual Symposia (formerly the Series of Online Conferences), which are designed to explore emerging topics in education and technology using social computing technologies to bring people together online in a way that offers many of the same affordances of a face-to-face conference.
