Note the absence of social media researchers on this #TSD themed episode of @QandA. I spoke to a producer about it on background, and as a potential panelist. I tried, but it is very hard to cut through and be heard if your take calls into question their entire premise & framing.
Good that they got a Googler though, those guys have a right to be heard
NB they do have an academic, @JocelynBrewer, a "cyberpsychologist" who will be able to comment on some aspects. But a shame not to also include folks who've studied social media industries, communities and cultures for decades - plenty of great Aussie talent to choose from there
