Social Media/Social tools

Stowe Boyd talks about the 4 C’s of social tools(aka social media)as
“Communication: instant messaging, e-mail, Web conferencing, streaming video and voice tools, and other messaging solutions
Coordination: calendaring, task and project management, contact management, and related technologies
Collaboration: file and application sharing, discussion, wikis, blogs and other shared-space technologies
Community: social networking, swarmth (digital reputation, also called karma or whuffie), group decision and other explicit community supports.”
Boyd uses these definitions as the jumping off point to imagine co-workers subscribing to one another’s RSS calendar newsfeeds, interlinked project blogs, and multiple-category individual profiles, the view depending on interest or role.
I agree. Things are definitely trending in this direction.
Neat essay.
