Let's assume, for the sake of argument, that there is such a thing as 'the social networking revolution', as if there was nothing of the kind before the evangelistic Web 2.0, and tell me that MySpace is not the 'horror vacui' of our times. I've already digressed into polemic. Let's begin again, with a question: what is the current state of media education in the context of social networking? Debates around nomenclature, the novelty or regressive nature of new formations are of course perennial, shifting with trends in industry, emergent communication technologies and constant updates within contemporary 'app' culture. The old chestnut 'new media art' seems to have finally succumbed to the dustbin of history, absorbed into the malleable and apparently more robust discourse of 'digital media' (though media or digital art doesn't seem to trouble the attention of arts critics too often these days). Similarly, the pervasive formations of mobility, customisation and social networking have taken centre stage as inflections of the contemporary mediascape.
