|Re: <nettime> Facebook|
|Similar example. |
I never had a Facebook account, either personal or with my projects in the fields of media and participative urbanism, but often had to lurk through my collaborators or intern in order to get to circles I wanted to access.
Now I am starting a new project curating the citizen’s involvement in a co-design process at territorial scale funded by EU. Our main social media channel will be facebook, because it is the only / more effective way to reach the general audience we expect to engage in the project.
It is quite ironic, as in the last 15 years (starting BTW from one of these Italian “revolutionary” squats Carsten was naming) I have been constantly challenged with the dream of designing a platform dedicated to collaborative bottom-up production of territorial atlases, with the idea that we need alternative tools giving communities the possibility to represent, discuss, manage and (maybe) change their socio-spatial identities. Now finally within my organisation we are getting to test online our first prototype, but we are far from proposing such tool as a full alternative to facebook or other social media. Currently, our best scenario is to amplify the publication of content in the autonomous platform through mainstream social media, with the idea at least of fostering a gradual transition towards decentralised and community owned models.
... sorry to be able to propose just a modestly reformist approach…
