Electronic social networks are a relatively new pervasive phenomenon that has changed the way in which we communicate and interact. They are now supporting new applications, leading to new trends and posing new challenges. The workshop titled ”Future of Social Networking: Experts from Industry and Academia” took place in Cambridge on November 18, 2010 to expose how the future of social networking may develop and be exploited in new technologies and systems. We provide a summary of this event and some observations on the key outcomes.
