Social media news: Google, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, and more

Here is a quick roundup of some of the latest happenings in the social media world.

Google and Tate Modern in London recently partnered to launch a new online art experiment called “This Exquisite Forest“.

Conceived by Chris Milk and Aaron Koblin, This Exquisite Forest is based on the famousExquisite Corpse, a technique invented by Surrealists in the 20th century. Internet users create “seeds” (or short animations) or build on existing ones. The goal? Growing these seeds into tree-like collections of branching narratives.

To provide inspiration, seven artists from Tate’s collection (Bill Woodrow, Dryden Goodwin, Julian Opie, Mark Titchner, Miroslaw Balka, Olafur Eliasson and Raqib Shaw) have already created their own animations.

“This Exquisite Forest uses several of Google Chrome’s advanced HTML5 and JavaScript features to produce a unique content creation and exploration experience,” saysAaron Koblin on the Google Blog. “For example, the Web Audio API makes it possible for contributors to generate music to accompany their submissions. The project also runs on Google App Engine and Google Cloud Storage.”

An accompanying installation will open on July 23 in the Level 3 gallery of Tate Modern. Trees seeded by Tate artists and public contributions will be on display as large-scale projections.  Read More
