Social Networks: Is the Novelty Wearing Off?

Complete Premium video at: Panelists at the Churchill Club's annual Top Ten Tech Trends event debate whether or not social networks are beggining to develop an "uncool factor" among early adopters. Futurist Paul Saffo predicts a shift towards "meaningful social networks" and a growing trend towards being disconnected. "The cool thing will be to not be on LinkedIn and to not be on Facebook," says Saffo. ---- What new trends will emerge in the next several years? Find out at one of the Churchill Club's most anticipated events of the year: the 13th Annual Top Ten Tech Trends debate. Be sure to get your seat as we welcome some of the techno-industries' leading (and most opinionated) luminaries as they evaluate predictions for the years ahead. Visionaries at SRI International -- the institute that has conducted $4B in research in the last decade and spun out 40 ventures -- have taken their best shot at predicting the biggest trends of them all. Our distinguished panel will rate and debate the trends. And our usual live audience of Silicon Valley's best and brightest -- all with opinions of your own -- will be asked to agree or disagree. - The Churchill Club Paul Saffo is a forecaster and strategist with over two decades experience exploring long-term technological change and its practical impact on business and society. He was initiated into the Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus in 2000 and is chairman of the Most Important Committee. Saffo is Chairman of the Samsung Science Board, and serves on a variety of other boards and advisory panels, including the Stanford Advisory Council on Science, Technology and Society, and the Long Now Foundation, as well as the boards of several public and pre-public companies located the United States and abroad.
