  • 15. SOCIAL MEDIA Life • Were usually invited to participate by people we know and trust. • There are specific things we want to do with the other people involved, • We get something back from participation • We have control over who sees our information. • The applications are intuitive • The applications are well-tuned to support the specific tasks we want to perform and their features are regularly rated and refined. Work • Often were instructed to use it by someone in authority • Little of what we actually get paid to do requires input from the majority of the network. • Participation feels like dropping pearls into a black hole • We have no control over who sees our information • The site is unattractive and requires a manual to get started. • The software is generic and requires a work-aroundSOURCE: TAMARA ERICKSON, HBR
