ICWSM 2014 took place at the University of Michigan, in sunny Ann Arbor, with chairs Eytan Adar @eytanadar and Paul Resnick @presnick. For me and quite a few others, this was a first time at this conference, so I would like to share some general impressions (for a more complete overview see the conference website and preface).
2678 respondents participated in the second wave of the longitudinal study. Social media use in general has not changed much. Most popular were still social network sites for private use (73.1%), followed by social media for business, such as Linkedin (24%). Only 14.8% engaged in microblogging.
