Network Mindset“connect and collaborate” rather than “command and control”
Characteristics of Social Media• Participatory: It blurs the line between producer and consumer, media and audience.• Open and Democratic: It encourages comments, voting and sharing of information. For this reason it is seen as authentic and trustworthy.• Conversational: Two (or more) way conversation rather than one-directional broadcast. Is personal, specific, and engaging.• Communal: Supports formation, growth & strength of communities around a particular shared interest.• Connected: Thrives on being connected, rather than being territorial and proprietary.
