On Defining 'Social Media'

Thanks to Michael for suggesting that the attempt to define our terms would be a worthwhile endeavor here. (And thanks to Vance for welcoming Michael while my attention was being diverted by the urgency of other matters here at Penn State.) I thought I might start to take up Michael's suggestion by reflecting on a question that he poses: [H]ow can discussion of the ethical implications of X be coherent when the nature of X is undefined? If I am right to identify this as a rhetorical question in…See More

Ike Sharpless commented on Mark Fisher's group Ethics and Social Media
"I agree that it's important to define our terms, but also agree that this particular discussion may be better suited for a separate thread...I don't really have much to add there.I also thought some of you might be interested in a lecture…"

Michael T Stowers commented on Mark Fisher's group Ethics and Social Media
"Thank you, @V,   One of the major problems with any serious use of "social media," whatever they turn out to be, has been the attenuation of ease-of-access with time.  Discourse is linear, at least presentationally, which leads…"

Vance A Ricks commented on Mark Fisher's group Ethics and Social Media
"Hello, Michael (if I may), and welcome.  I wouldn't dare speak for other participants, but I, too, regret the post-conference "droop" that frequently occurs when participants return to the rest of their lives and find it hard to…"

"Hello all,   A document-centered approach would be a good model for most affinity groups and is something sadly lacking on most 'social networks.'     Is there yet a clear definition of "social media"?  The…"

What is your professional position? (
Full-Time Faculty Member
Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
I am interested in the ways in which philosophical study and dialogue can be carried on across traditional disciplinary and institutional boundaries. I'm currently directing the social media initiative of the Penn State Rock Ethics Institute and the blog project for the North American Kant Society. I also serve as coordinator for teaching and learning with technology in the Department of Philosophy at Penn State, and as a member of the College of Liberal Arts faculty advisory board for teaching and learning with technology. In all of these capacities, I am working to understand the significance that new technologies have for the ways we (are) connect(ed) with one another in our pursuit of the traditional aims of philosophy.

Hi Mark, Thanks for joining the PPN! You can now also join the group that I created for the Rock. Since this site is still in its early stages, it would be a great help if you promoted the Rock and what we are doing there by posting a brief little write up.
