On social software

was working on my latest ‘production’ for audioblogging/podcasting and went to hunt down some definition of ‘social software’, gotten two good links:
1. My working definition of social software… by Tom Coates (with truly rich exchange in the comments)
2. Are You Ready for Social Software? by Stowe Boyd

Social software are built to:

1. Support for conversational interaction between individuals or groups

2. Support for social feedback

3. Support for social networks

(extracted from Boyd’s article)
