Introduction
Social Computing can be broadly defined as computational facilitation of social studies and human social dynamics as well as design and use of information and communication technologies that consider social context. Social computing has recently become one of the central themes across a number of information and communication technology fields and attracted significant interest from not only researchers in computing and social sciences, but also software and online game vendors, web entrepreneurs, political analysts, digital government practitioners. The Second IEEE International Conference on Social Computing (SocialCom2010) provides a key forum for researchers and industry practitioners to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of art and practice of social computing.
