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.
