Social Networks in the History of Innovation and Invention

Social Networks in the History of Innovation and Invention

The book provides evidence that exponential growth in technical innovation is linked to the growth of historical innovation networks. This book integrates history of science and technology with modern social network theory.

This book integrates history of science and technology with modern social network theory. Using examples from the history of machines, as well as case studies from wireless, radio and chaos theory, the author challenges the genius model of invention. Network analysis concepts are presented to demonstrate the societal nature of invention in areas such as steam power, internal combustion engines, early aviation, air conditioning and more. Using modern measures of network theory, the author demonstrates that the social networks of invention from the 19th and early 20th centuries have similar characteristics to modern 21st C networks such as the World Wide Web. The book provides evidence that exponential growth in technical innovation is linked to the growth of historical innovation networks.

The Web has been with us now for almost 25 years. An integral part of our social, cultural and political lives, ‘new media’ is simply not that new anymore. Despite the rapidly expanding archives of information at our disposal, and the recent growth of interest in web history as a field of research, the information available to us still far outstrips our understanding of how to interpret it. The SAGE Handbook of Web History marks the first comprehensive review of this subject to date. Its editors emphasise two main different forms of study: the use of the web as an historical resource, and the web as an object of study in its own right. Bringing together all the existing knowledge of the field, with an interdisciplinary focus and an international scope, this is an incomparable resource for researchers and students alike. Part One: The Web and Historiography Part Two: Theoretical and Methodological Reflections Part Three: Technical and Structural Dimensions of Web History Part Four: Platforms on the Web Part Five: Web History and Users, some Case Studies Part Six: The Roads Ahead

Analyzing the Social Web provides a framework for the analysis of public data currently available and being generated by social networks and social media, like Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare. Access and analysis of this public data about people and their connections to one another allows for new applications of traditional social network analysis techniques that let us identify things like who are the most important or influential people in a network, how things will spread through the network, and the nature of peoples' relationships. Analyzing the Social Web introduces you to these techniques, shows you their application to many different types of social media, and discusses how social media can be used as a tool for interacting with the online public. Presents interactive social applications on the web, and the types of analysis that are currently conducted in the study of social media. Covers the basics of network structures for beginners, including measuring methods for describing nodes, edges, and parts of the network. Discusses the major categories of social media applications or phenomena and shows how the techniques presented can be applied to analyze and understand the underlying data. Provides an introduction to information visualization, particularly network visualization techniques, and methods for using them to identify interesting features in a network, generate hypotheses for analysis, and recognize patterns of behavior. Includes a supporting website with lecture slides, exercises, and downloadable social network data sets that can be used can be used to apply the techniques presented in the book.

This volume examines how social media is evolving as an industry—it is an extension of traditional media industries, yet it is distinctly different in its nature and ability to build relationships among users. Examining social media in both descriptive and analytical ways, the chapters included herein present an overview of the social media industries, considering the history, development, and theoretical orientations used to understand social media. Covered are: Business models found among the social media industries and social media as a form of marketing. Social media as a form of entertainment content, both in terms of digital content, and as a tool in the production of news. Discussions of ethics and privacy as applied to the area of social media. An examination of audience uses of social media considering differences among Latinos, African-Americans, and people over the age of 35. Overall, the volume provides a timely and innovative look at the business aspects of social media, and it has much to offer scholars, researchers, and students in media and communication, as well as media practitioners.

Social media have accelerated communication, expanded business horizons and connected millions of individuals who otherwise would never have met. But not everything social media touch turns to gold—much of it is brass. Social networking sites are used by scammers, criminals and sexual predators, and many people now self-diagnose illness based on misinformation shared online. Businesses make great claims about social media as a marketing tool but few show any real returns. We communicate through social media but are we really saying anything? Is social media doomed to be a conduit of narcissism or can it become a channel for responsible communication? Can social networking overcome its manifold violations of privacy? Must we sacrifice our identities in order to tweet or “friend” our associates? This book examines some of the legal and ethical issues surrounding social media, their impact on civil discourse and their role in suicides, murders and criminal enterprise.

Web 2.0 is the evolution of the Web towards greater simplicity (requiring no technical knowledge or computer for users) and interactivity (allowing everyone, individually or collectively, to contribute, share and collaborate in various forms). The term "social media" is increasingly used and tends to replace the term Web 2.0 and covers the various activities that integrate technology, social interaction, and content creation. Social media uses collective intelligence in a spirit of online collaboration. Social media uses a lot of techniques, such as RSS feeds and other web syndication feeds, blogs, wikis, photo sharing (Flickr), video sharing (YouTube), podcasts, social networks (Facebook ), collaborative bookmarking, mashups, virtual worlds or microblogs (Twitter). A social network is a set of brands, such as individuals or organizations, interconnected by links created during social interactions. It is represented by a structure or a dynamic form of a social group. The analysis of social networks is based on network theory, the use of graphs, and sociological analysis. It is the field that studies social networks.

Written by Matrix Thompson & Sarika Khambaita and published by the Pamper Me Network, "Social Networking Is The Greatest Con In History Or The Greatest Opportunity" is the first installment in “The Greatest Con In The History Of The Human Race" ebook series. The three part series takes a fresh look at social networking, crowd funding & Internet-based marketing systems, with a focus on teaching individuals and small business owners how they can level the playing field, share in the bounty the Internet offers and market like multinational corporations. Social Networking Is The Greatest Con In History Or The Greatest Opportunity encourages individuals and small business owners to open their eyes and question the motives of Internet companies, especially social media networks, game developers and crowd funding portals that launch self-serving user-generated content business models. Although the title of the book is provocative, Social Networking Is The Greatest Con In History Or The Greatest Opportunity is an instructional manual for individuals and small business owners that want to share in the bounty that the Internet offers. This book revisits the techniques used by successful Internet companies including Whats App, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google, Linkedin and others to build huge opt-in databases as well as create generational wealth. Having explained the origins and founding missions of the World Wide Web, Social Networking Is The Greatest Con In History Or The Greatest Opportunity and subsequent volumes in the ebook series goes on to explain how the Internet has changed—and how it has been corrupted to create a state of instability where some Internet stakeholders are enslaving others. The ebook then demonstrates how the enslavement has expanded into social gaming, mobile gaming and will soon include crowd funding. While the ebook is extremely critical of some Internet business models and Internet entrepreneurs who are described in “Volume I” as the “Forces For Good” and the “Forces For Evil”, Social Networking Is The Greatest Con In History Or The Greatest Opportunity was written to demonstrate that the original noble and achievable goals of the Internet have somehow been corrupted by a new generation and self-serving entrepreneurs—and explains why content creation as well as new innovations like crowd funding must be a true partnership between Internet users and businesses for it to be sustainable, and supporting the growing trend towards social entrepreneurialism. THE EBOOK SERIES IS A ROAD MAP UNVEILED IN EACH VOLUME The Greatest Con In History Or The Greatest Opportunity ebook series provides a road map that can be used by anyone to transform their own personal network into a powerful source of revenue. Read the ebook series if you want to find out the secrets behind the “Greatest Con In The History Of The Human Race”.
