Collaborative Organizations and Social Media Conference via Tweets

On April 12, 2013 I ran the Collaborative Organizations and Social Media Conference (#2013COSM). The conference considered the ways in which the developing scholarship on social media and social networking might be incorporated into thinking critically about how social computing may be affecting and even forming organizations.

Among the questions and areas raised were:

·       How do we evaluate the utility of social computing technologies to virtual organizations?

·       How do social media and social networking technologies shape organizational structures?

·       Can social media and social networking enhance trust relationships within organizations?

·       How do we identify and understand social media cyberinfrastructures within virtual teams?

·       What can social network analysis tell us about how social media affects collaborative organizations and processes?

In the spirit of collaborative social media, the event was LiveStreamed and had a strong engagement on Twitter both by attendees as well as LiveStreaming participants. Below is a graph of Twitter activity, which included 45 Twitter participants and 191 unique tweet actions (i.e. edges). The average geodesic distance was 1.94, making this a pretty highly intermeshed group!
