    • Outline Wikinition Wikimania Wikingenious Wikinonos This is a huge part of the explosion of content. We previously explored the world of social networks where the content primarily focuses on, and is organized around, the individual. The communities on social networks are similar focused on the individuals within that group. Wikis are another powerful community platform, but the most clear dierence to me is the focus and organization around the content and information, not the individual. But, like social networks, the wiki is primarily build by individuals.
