Preserving Social Media

This month’s NISO Newsline has an intriguing thought piece on preserving social media. The managing director of NISO, Todd Carpenter, speaks of preserving  “’live web’ content by saving some of the increasingly vibrant conversations taking place in social forums, blogs and other non-traditional content distribution forms.” He sees that standards and best practices need to be developed and tested, and he suggests that such conversations should start now. It will be interesting to watch NISO’s role in developing such standards.
