Social interaction design is UX and interaction design for social media. It’s the work of many practitioners and is applied through many practices. SxD is an application of insights into social media that starts with users. How they use social media reflects their personal and social interests as well as their relationships. The interactions occur among users, not just between users and the interface. I look for the emergent social practices that make your site, application, or service a social success.
As Google launched Buzz this week, we spent a lot of the show talking about it, and the privacy problem it raised though auto-connecting your contacts.
