Mobile social computing has exploded into people’s lives during the past 10 years, but to become truly pervasive it needs to be much more context-aware and personalizable. The next generation of social media needs to be able to react and adapt to the physical environments in which people live and act. The SOCIETIES project is integrating research undertaken in the fi eld of pervasive computing with social computing to develop the next generation of social media systems. The vehicle for this is the “pervasive community”, and this chapter outlines the innovations required to realize this concept. Pervasive communities can restore the symbiosis between our digital and physical worlds.
