Future of Facebook Project Wrapup

Comment

Thank you everyone for participating in this Future of Facebook pilot project as we fleshed out Open Foresight, 'a new methodology for public futurism.' 

We've just put up the last blog post and videos for the project, and are calling it a wrap!

7 Visions Video & Future of Facebook Wrapup

We hope you've been inspired to create your own projects to crowdsource the future of any given topic, and raise the bar on critical thinking and public discourse. 

Thanks again for helping make this happen!

Update #6

Future of Facebook :: Environment

Comment

Hello everyone!

We've just uploaded the fourth video in the six part series, focused on Facebook's role in our interactions with social technologies & the physical environment: 

"Will the distinction between the online world and the offline world soon dissolve? Might our physical world soon have a Facebook-powered augmented reality layer? Will we become nodes and sensing objects in a new kind of location-based web experience? And what role will social networks play in climate change?"
