Complexity of Social Computing - Is it a Consideration for EA's?

In this "insane graphic" featured in an article in Business Insider's article titled "This INSANE Graphic Shows How Ludicrously Complicated Social Media Marketing Is Now" - opened my eyes to just how large the Social Computing Landscape really is (apparently Pintrest is not on this chart - imagine that?!?).  So, my quetion to folks out there is: does EA need to consider Social Computing in it's scope???  I have yet to see much discussion about thisbut think it NEEDS to be part of the puzzle.  I will think this through some more and do another post, but welcome ideas or feedback.

Comments:

If your business considers social media an integral part of the overall business strategy, then yes EA must take social media into consideration. Social media sites and data need to be incorporated into your application and data architecture foundations, respectively. Of course, social sites can be rationalized according to your internal architecture repository standards as to avoid overly-complex diagrams as demonstrated above.
