Social Media

Exploring changes in how people work, play, and connect


Our interdisciplinary teams explore many aspects of social media to help us to understand, model, and enable the online experiences of both the present and the future.

We study online behavior and interactions to help us gain insights into how social and technological forces interact. We also build new forms of online experiences around communities of interest, to gain understanding of how to bring people together.
