  24. 24. Why  students  should  care  about  Social   Media   “In-­‐forming  is  the  individual  person's   analog  to  open-­‐sourcing,  outsourcing,   insourcing,  supply-­‐chaining,  and   offshoring.  Informing  is  the  ability  to  build   and  supply  your  own  personal  supply   chain—a  supply  chain  of  informa?on,   knowledge,  and  entertainment.  In-­‐ forming  is  about  self-­‐collabora?on— becoming  your  own  self-­‐directed  and  self-­‐ empowered  researcher,  editor,  and   selector  of  entertainment.                –  Thomas  Friedman
