TOP REVIEWS FROM SOCIAL COMPUTING
My least favorite of the group so far as it spends a bit too much time on crowd sourcing and was missing the latest industry powerhouse topics like Slack.
Started off strong, but is missing the key aspects of social networks and how to integrate their prevalence into our designs.
Felt a bit light and not necessary, but it was good info still. Took pleasure in it and actually enjoyed the easy homework.
Great course, very practical and a great pack of skills which will help me interpret problems better, especially ones involving multiple people (which is basically all problems.)
