I have to admit, looking at beautifully crafted social media frameworks makes me feel positively giddy. So imagine my delight when I saw all of the social media framework goodness on Ross Dawson’s Twitter page: @rossdawson. So, for other geeks who get the same cheap thrills as I do, I’ve combined the frameworks created by Ross Dawson and Advanced Human Technologies and Future Exploration Network into one single collection. Some of the frameworks are from a couple of years ago, but they’re still so relevant that I thought I would include them. Don’t be shy… enjoy!!!

GENESIS OF THE FRAMEWORK
The core ideas in this framework look at how people would consume media in the future – where they would be, how they would interface with media, and what they would consume. In essence, creating a person-centered view of how we engage with media. Thus the working title of the framework began as ‘Future of Media Participation’, looking not just at our media consumption, but also how we contribute. When the framework was finished it was clear the central aspect was the media lifecycle. As such the diagram has been renamed, however it stems from looking at how and where we consume and participate in media.
