  • “Social Impacts”: Workshop Oct.18th

    What is characteristic for a social impact?
    *Change
    *Condition to reach it: got to connect
    *They always want an offline impact
    *To reach change in the real world online activism normally isn’t sufficient
    *Problem and big challenge is to reach people who are not digital – got to be accessible
    *Change happens somewhere else but not in Social Media
    *Got to go to events, connecting, networking, go to the streets …

    Dimensions of change/social impacts:
    *Virtual
    *Real
    *Institutional

    Because:
    *Social Media is just a part of the life but not a mirror of the world

    What is social media good for?
    *Networking, Crowdsourcing, consensus (level of relationships)
    *Visualizing (objective level)
    *Get in action (with own body, get hurt… being a subject)

    But: Social Media or platforms do not include basic democracy!

    Values for new and good social media:
    *Transparency
    *User-friendly
    *Autonomy: need to know about the possibility to change the alternatives to Google and Facebook
    *Possibility to scale up but also scale down! Part of the autonomy – For security and organization reasons

    To have the right technology is not enough to create an alternative (like Diaspora) – at the moment
    *Which kind of audience am I looking for?
    *It´s a question of organization and linking to reach an audience

    Problem: To find the right platform for your audience
    *Got to know what you are exactly looking for and which tool to use for what
    *Somebody should give input: We need to know which kind of information already exists and where it is

    Input after finding a good alternative:
    *How to define success? Data, people?
    *What happens then?
    *How to evaluate the right information? Users normally pick up and share information without checking it

    To create an alternative to Facebook, we have to take a look at what we can learn form this social network:
    *Fact that you can easily get and see information about other people makes it interesting for the users. (non-privacy)
