*SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES*
Social media, social computing, new media and networks have become major
areas of research, applications, and development in recent years.  The
adoption of social media and their applications have expanded in kind and
size to unprecedented levels and continue to grow at accelerated rates.
The creation and deployment of Social Media is one of the main forces
behind the evolution and expansion of the Internet, the Web, and mobile
media.  Social media account for the majority of Internet traffic while its
content comprises the greater part of the daily published multi media on
the Web.  These technologies have a profound impact on society and on
private life.  Furthermore, there is a great diversity in the communities
of people interested in social computing: researchers in computing,
communications, and social sciences; industrial practitioners; wide range
of businesses; software and online game vendors; web entrepreneurs; digital
government organizations; political analysts; educational institutions,
etc.
