“The Social Network” aka the Facebook movie is certainly generating debate about how badly girl geeks are treated, whether all nerds are robots and why the traditional media wants to portray social in a really bad light.
However, what the film is *not* addressing is the new social rules. If Twitter is about getting the best quip of the day or providing some useful info, Linkedin is about proving "my network is bigger than yours", and Facebook is about sharing that "I have a more interesting life than you" There must be some new rules for these new games, but what are they?
This mashup* event will present views from those who are bringing about change, focusing on the debate centred around the social norms of etiquette, safety and privacy. With technology moving forward have the old rules around these areas moved on and developed or have we got new social rules that lead our lives...
What impact is this transition from old rules to new rules and then to the new new rules having on our lives? What are these new new rules around location, revealing who/ where we are and what are the implications not only now, but moving forward.
Imagine the implications on your personal life if you were checked into a location you hadn't visited, and how that could resonate into your professional life. These are the areas we imagine will be discussed and more, to explore the impact of the New Social Rules
The next mashup* event is on the 24th November and we aim to debate, build on and clarify the new rules.
