Searching for Expertise - LinkedIn Answers

Clark Quinn

Just yesterday (after having joined this ning as my first ning ever) I found a ning on the topic of Moodle, and I posted my question there. Yesterday I created a screen cast on LinkedIn for Finding Expertise. Today, I saw a post on our Free - Web 2.0 This is definitely a knowledge work task where talking to someone will help.

Seven Things I Learned This Year

Tony Karrer

LMS and Learning Tracking Still Struggling While LMS solutions continue to get better, more powerful, more diverse, I continue to find myself searching for just the right solution for particular needs. For example my search for an LMS Solution for Simple Partner Compliance Training didn’t really arrive at just the right solution.

Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

As our Work Literacy Ning site (2008) is in danger of getting bumped off the Net due to Ning’s new pricing policy , I will post some of the key articles here so we don’t lose them. As a learning professional, you will want to think of Ning in two ways. I cannot do that with Gmail or Skype or Ning.

Getting Help

Tony Karrer

I 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

I feel somewhat bad because if you Google search "Brandon Hall Network" the results give you a couple of links to Brandon Hall and then links to a few of my past posts around the network such as: Brandon Hall Network - Nicely Done? Maybe Brandon Hall or a Ning community will take off. Or maybe the eLearningGuild.

Conversation Learning

Clark Quinn

In Value from Social Media , I talked about the issue of finding information via Google / Search vs. seeking conversation: Let’s consider a simple scenario - I’m trying to decide if a particular solution makes sense for my company / organization. And I just learned about ning for the first time yesterday! Is my answer reasonable?

Social Networks

Clark Quinn

I have been part of Ning groups before, but find it overwhelming, very quickly because there seems to be multiple inputs for information. Even as an organizer, when I get into the Ning group, I feel overwhelmed. I don't know about ning or even facebook. The first week of our Free - Web 2.0 This week we looked at Social Networks.

Profile Photo

Tony Karrer

I'm writing this post to encourage you to: Spend a little bit of time to create a reasonable profile photo Attach it to every online profile when you create it And when I say every, I mean every – don't join that new Ning group without attaching your photo. My guess is that about 25% of the people I run into do not have a profile photo.

Blogs, Social Networks and LinkedIn Answers

Tony Karrer

The way I use LinkedIn Answers is to ask specific questions (never open ended or partially thought out the way I do in a blog) that I want to get specific answers or find people with expertise who I can't seem to find by searching LinkedIn normally. Social Network based discussions (for example a Ning network) act like communities.

Reflections on Twitter and social networking

Clark Quinn

I’ve seen it mostly as a job hunt tool (consequently, more for others than myself, e.g. to support people I know who are on a job search), but he’s leveraging it as an expertise tool. And Ning’s quite interesting too. Many of the people to track are sharing their interesting discoveries. What am I missing

Networks and Communities

Tony Karrer

Limits of Search In Value from Social Media , I looked at a scenario where I'm evaluating a particular solution for my company / organization. These are common questions when only search is used. I also signed up to a couple Ning communities where I'm lurking. Are the conclusions reasonable? I've looked at the right stuff.

Media and Messages

Harold Jarche

Using Twitterfall of search, one can see the collecting observations from many people and from this see some patterns. The main limitation of using Ning is the lack of wiki, and obvious weakness when creating a schedule on the fly with people in multiple time zones. The main driver is our ubiquitous access to networks.

What Not To Build

Even if you have an original website idea, your site, unless it is *very* special (like, say, the Dead Sea Scrolls) will quickly be swamped by the noise and verbiage that is the web, your only traffic search engines and spammers. These became platforms (see above) and then we had social network multiplier sites, like Ning. Maybe not.
