  • Social media is not a how. It's not an is, either. Maybe it's an are.

    In any case, I would scrap this slide: I don't let me students start out with a dictionary or wikipedia definition -- it's weak and lame.

    I think you want to start out with a timeline for social media relevant to your audience, starting as far back as you want, say, email on the original arpanet, but far emough back so that they can see and relate to the changes you are tryng to describe.

    E.g., you may want to start with the web ca. 1994, a place with one-way, static info (web pages in the 90's) that grew more dynamic (news, blogs, database queries) and more interactive (blog comments).

    Then you can talk about the social networking phenomenon. I think you should highlight the importance of metcalfe's 'network effect,' which says something important abut the difference between, say myspace and facebook on the one hand and friendster and orkut on the other.

    You also want to emphasize how social networks have changed the role of content -- content is no longer king, it's barely a serf anymore. Facebook still has content, but it's just a place to hang the important stuff: two-way and n-way communication and association.

    And then you can move on to twitter, in which the only content that remains is ephemeral snippets, pushed aside by dynamic multiparty communication and community building operating at internet speed.

    Well, that's how I would start out, anyway. \(^_^)/
