Nancy White

I don’t normally wholly post others blog posts, but I think spreading the word about alternatives to NING , which will be ending its free service, is a useful thing.

Tony Karrer

I was hoping that Ning was going to come out with a inexpensive plan that would support the different Ning sites that I have a hand in. They do have Ning Mini at $3/mo, but it only allows 150 members. Subscribe to the Best of eLearning Learning for updates from this blog and other eLearning blogs Suggestions?

Blogs, Social Networks and LinkedIn Answers

Tony Karrer

I received a great question from someone relative to my last post - Required Reading for Training Managers where I continue to suggest the benefits of blogging (see Blogging - I'm Pushing Harder Now and Top Ten Reasons To Blog and Top Ten Not to Blog for recaps of much of this). But, it's just that.

Forums vs. Social Networks?

Clark Quinn

They could also do it as comments on a blog. Social Network Examples are Ning and KickApps. I'm debating the value of forum / group / threaded discussion software vs. social network software for a particular situation. It aims at a very broad audience that includes everyone from early adopters to technology laggards.

Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

Resonance

Harold Jarche

This shows that blog posts do not need to be short to get attention. It got more attention here than on the Ning site.

Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

They had profiles, directories, blogs to help foster sharing between spread out teams. Using SharePoint for Event Planning & Organizing Just like we used a Wiki one year and Ning another to support the online conference LearnTrends , SharePoint can be used to manage all types of events, especially internal events. were similar.

Elgg: it’s a community effort

Harold Jarche

This weekend I noticed a tweet from Alec Couros about some issues with the Ning social networking platform. That post is over a year old but from the comments as late as last fall, there seem to be ongoing issues on how Ning treats its customers, users and their data. So what is the alternative to Ning?

you could also say ‘a wordpress.com project, a moodle hosted project or a ning project if you don’t care about controlling your data… which I do… but you may not). would add Elgg to mix if there is an interest in the functionality of Ning, but with the advantage of open source.

Social or Community?

Harold Jarche

In the comments, Fred says that blogs are definitely social, as they allow authors to block and filter comments. Just like a real community

The leaking pyramid

Harold Jarche

Social networking is getting more pervasive (Facebook, Twitter or DIY with Ning) and accepted in the mainstream, such as Linked-In for recruiting.

Getting Help

Tony Karrer

looked at a couple examples this recently in LinkedIn for Finding Expertise and Searching for Expertise - LinkedIn Answers This topic came up again in a discussion - Blogging to ask for Help - Colin asked: If you need input from like-minded people around the world, where's the best place to ask?

Brandon Hall Network - Back from the Dead?

Tony Karrer

If you've read other blogs claiming the Network is dead, consider that a great exaggeration! and Brandon Hall Researchers Blogging - Implications? Maybe Brandon Hall or a Ning community will take off. Or maybe someone like ASTD will adopt Ning and give it a huge push. Or maybe the eLearningGuild.

Too Many Social Networks?

Tony Karrer

I just read David Warlicks' post - I Just Don't Get it Yet â€" Social Networks where he discusses his recent experience with several Ning generated social networks including: I've joined Library 2.0 , School 2.0 , and Classroom 2.0. If it's an open system, i.e., can include my blog, my LinkedIn connections, my comments, my bookmarks, etc.,

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. It could just as easily have been called Web 2.0

Reflections on Twitter and social networking

Clark Quinn

Twitter is a different story; described as micro-blogging, it’s more immediate, more a pointer.  And Ning’s quite interesting  too.  I’ve been using Twitter for a number of weeks now, and that, combined with several recent social networking activities prompted this reflection.  The Work Literacy one on Learning 2.0
