In a three-part series Joshua-Michéle Ross explores on O’Reilly Radar a series of questions on the value and function of social media (a.k.a. social technologies).

“I will not be arguing that social technologies are a bane or should be stopped. I don’t believe the former is true and I believe the latter is impossible… I will not be arguing against technology. Rather, I will raise questions about the potential abuse of social technologies and the steps we might take to remedy them. The more discussion this prompts within the Radar community the better.”
