The Ultimate Social Media Diagram? by Tom Cunniff, 2008
What I really AM saying is that when media fragments into this many teeny pieces, it’s confusing as hell. It’s The Humpty-Dumpty Problem.
Which pieces matter? Which can we ignore? How can we re-aggregate the important pieces into a marketplace that’s large enough to be meaningful...?
And, on a very practical basis, how many individual conversations can we afford to support? How many can we hope to conduct without making each one so shallow that it’s hugely unsatisfying for everyone?
I don’t have the answers, yet..... If I did, I’d put up a simpler diagram.That's about what I have to say tonight. Now I'm going to post this, then write a few emails and, if I am still trucking, post an equally short (or even shorter) post on precarious faculty. That may even be the secret of training myself to write shorter posts
