The Web and Internet have been catalysts for the creation of collaborative applications and tools. On-line collaboration has been enriched with new applications and tools for storing, sharing, and experimenting with multimedia data in a synchronous or asynchronous manner, such as YouTube and Flickr. These technologies have allowed the formation of new types of social networks, interactions, and online communities. The authors anticipate that in the near future mobile devices that have the processing, communication and geolocating capabilities will enable seamless integration of services combining media sharing and geographical tagging.
