> Worldwide, people connect via the web and extend their social  
> communities
> beyond what could ever have been realized without the web. Denmark  
> globally
> has one of the highest numbers of users of web-based social  
> networking sites
> per habitant. Till now, users of web-based social networking and  
> communities
> have mainly used traditional computers with large screens. For many  
> users,
> the concept of social networking means always on which sets focus  
> on the
> trend of being able to do social networking also on smart phones  
> and other
> smaller screens. The transition from the big screen to the small  
> screen in
> relation to social networking and communities outlines a number of
> challenges that the second CMI conference will discuss. Areas to be
> discussed are: how to secure the privacy for social network users;  
> which are
> the demands to operators/content providers on the price structure;  
> how can
> the technological sustainability be secured with the smaller  
> screens; which
> are the alternative interaction mechanisms to secure that users  
> still have a
> good user experience; which new types of services will be relevant  
> to mobile
> devices; how will the different initiatives and services coexist  
> and which
> demands must be set to the standardization when convergence takes  
> place in
> this way?
