    • Wikipedia best know – great example of development of “community of practice” – “Darwikinism”
    • Policies, guidelines etc developed by users - All volunteers
    • 2 million + articles, quality issues, mirror sites & google rankings
    • Often discussion pages & wikiprojects most interesting
    • Ability to track changes – recent deletion of (referenced) details of MPs expenses by MP concerned
    • Other wikis eg WikiLeaks
  • 6. Usage
    • Massive growth in use of Web 2.0 applications
    • ? Due to lack of trust in govt/ organisations/professionals
      • Edelman cited a new trend in its 2006 Trust Barometer: the steady decline of trust in traditional figures of authority, and the increase in the credibility of the "average person." The beginning of the trend was a huge spike in trust for a "person like yourself or your peer" from 22% in 2003 to 68% in 2006.

    • “ Realistic evaluation” & other data collection eg Patient Opinion & Rate my Doctor
    • Individualised support –& needs of the use truly personalising to the language & needs of the user(s)

    • Instant messaging/chat & “time wasting”
    • Blocking by NHS Firewalls

    • Identity theft
  • 9. Implications for Health & Social Care
    • Presenting quality information in appropriate formats eg H&SC in NI on wikipedia & monitor discussion forums (not just Engage )
    • Wikis for shared document creation
    • Social networking tools for staff collaboration & education
    • Guidance for staff on use of web 2.0 tools – risks and benefits including reputational aspects
    • 24/7 society requiring support for H&SC needs
  • 10. Conclusions
    • Social Networking is current “flavour of the month”
    • Massive growth & large audience – Issues around demographic profile & socially excluded
    • Potential in individualised health promotion, sharing & representation of data, realistic evaluation
    • Risks of exposure (individual & organisation), quality issues
    • Undue weight to minority views
    • Change in culture
    • Need to embrace news “ways of working” – while being aware of risks
