Can I come in? – social media spaces

I noted this post on Matt Locke’s blog which I think is a useful way of examining the social spaces that characteristics we find ourselves in in the Web 2.0 environment.

I think this is particularly interesting in the light of a comment Nick Baylis  made at Channel 4’s In The Wild event back in May. (I paraphrase) “Privacy/anonymity will be one of the most valued commodities in the next ten years.” The spaces where we interact and intersect feel as if they should be controllable but increasingly we become aware that they aren’t. Understanding exactly where we can intrude on the lives of strangers, where we can but with caveats and where it is best we don’t, will be key skills in an increasingly unfocused media environment.
