Fine Vine

Microsoft is betting that the next evolution of social networking will be “societal networking”–applications like their Vine prototype, designed to let a specified group of individuals share information in the event of a disaster or emergency (assuming, of course, that the networks stay usable). We could see this also used on a more individual level, so that a person with mobility disabilities would have an easy way to contact a variety of people for help in the case of a wheelchair breakdown, or a group of people could communicate around the status and needs of a person with Alzheimer’s.
