From Facebook in the U.S. to Renren in China the social web has become a part of many people’s lives. Social networking can no longer be ignored as a force of nature and will continue to develop for years to come, but the development of an online presence comes with its own challenges. When it comes to drawing the line between personal and professional, social networks are slow to offer up the necessary chalk. At the same time, social networks have provided an invaluable outlet for sharing information. Whether one is announcing a concert in Detroit or opening a channel for customer feedback on a particular product, the opportunities for better communication are abundant. Will social networks make us a better society or are they a challenge to personal privacy? How will social networks develop in the next 15 to 20 years?
