Social computing refers to digital applications that enable interaction and collaboration whereby value is created through contributions from users which are interconnected. Functionalities of such applications are, amongst others, social networking (e.g. Facebook), photo-and video-sharing (e.g. Flickr & Youtube); user-generated content (e.g. Wikipedia, Blogs) and sharing of experiences, taste, or Internet bookmarks (e.g. delicious). There has been a strong and unexpected growth in take-up and use of these applications since 2003.
