Abstract

Since its foundation in 2004, Facebook has become a major force in social networking, claiming to give people“…the power to share and make the world more open and connected.” How can these tools be used by artists to connect and share with collaborators? Can Facebook be used to aid creativity, as a collaborative artistic tool or environment? Based on a practical research project, “Feedback’, this chapter focuses on the use of Facebook as a tool for creative collaboration and explores a number of possible models of artistic collaboration using the online social network.
