Topic: Social relations and the resulting social networks are an important basis for social and technological development. With the technologies and concepts of Web 2.0, new digital forms of support are available for a development of participatory social networks. Social Software and Social Media as new form of cooperation systems enable new modes of collaboration. The economic success of portals illustrates the demand for such solutions as well as the difficulty of a proper economic evaluation. From the point of view of the user, questions of privacy, data protection and identity theft are getting more important. Users of several systems need interoperability and data exchange. Besides purely technological questions also topics of media presence in open and semi open forums and sociological phenomena are becoming relevant. With ubiquitous access to human communication acts on these platforms new possibilities for analyzing social networks become possible - up to the prognosis of social trends.
