When we talk about social networks, we’re almost always talking about online networks: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, weblogs. Constantly changing and ever-increasing online media offer us unique ways to connect, collaborate, and express our interests and creativity. Yet, questions have been raised about the widespread use of social networks, revealing a complex picture of the impact these technologies have on diverse issues such as community, tolerance, marketing and promotion, political engagement, and trust. Does social networking isolate people and reduce the significance of their relationships, or are there benefits to being connected to others in this way?

    Despite the remarkably spare crowd (at a venue that holds almost 300!), I thought the five panelists provided great insight into the social networking question.

    Will the group be congregating before the discussion or getting together afterward, since, after all, Meetup was designed to facilitate, face-to-face social interactions? It would be valuable to discuss the panel discussion afterwards. Coffee after?
