Corporate Social Bookmarking Tools

Tony Karrer

I was just asked on twitter about use social bookmarking tools that work behind the firewall. I thought I had blogged about this before, but I'm not finding the post. Here are the social bookmarking tools that I commonly cite in presentations: BEA Pathways Cogenz Connectbeam del.irio.us - perl based, very similar to del.icio.us

What tools should we learn?

Harold Jarche

Social Bookmarks. Perhaps the simplest way to start sharing organisational knowledge is with social bookmarks. Many people still have their list of Bookmarks/Favourites in their web browser, but when they’re not at their computer these links aren’t accessible. Enter the social bookmark. Social bookmarks are web sites that let you create an account in order to save web pages. Blogs. Blogging is Networking.

Social media without the BPR

Harold Jarche

Last night at ThirdTuesdayNB the conversation came around to how to implement social media in large, bureaucratic organizations without creating a white elephant type of project that takes years to implement. Michele Martin just posted some social media baby steps that have worked for her, particularly: Static website => blog. Replace multi-recipient e-mails with internal blog posts and send the link via e-mail or IM.

Peeragogy

Jay Cross

Give me a way to voice my opinions and show my personality, as on my blog. Show me what others are interested in, as with social bookmarks like Diigo and Delicious. You can’t afford to replicate Facebook or Google behind your firewall. link to your blog and bookmarks, people in your network, links to documents you frequently share, members of your network. Social network – for online conversation, connecting with people, and all of the above functions.

Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk

Clark Quinn

Janet Clarey wrote an interesting blog post in response to the relatively recent edupunk meme which is basically an ideology that DIY learning and repurposing content is the way to go (and somewhat the ONLY way to go). The questions she raises are: Is the edupunk ideology saying that the use of social media in commercial learning management systems is an assault on the very philosophy of learning 2.0? Do you show them the internal blogging tool only?

Transparent work

Harold Jarche

Tweet People are now the engine of change and the fuel is communications, says Jay Deragon in Systemic Impact of Social Technology. For more contextual knowledge, I ask my network via text message, Twitter, blog or forum. Just compare informal learning on the web with what happens inside the firewall. We read free blog posts, comments, tweets and wikipedia articles.

Web 2.0 Tools in the Enterprise

Tony Karrer

Then I saw Bill Ives Is Blogging Inside the Firewall an Oxymoron? where he talks about some of the issues with blogs within the enterprise and ends with: Wikis seem to have less baggage attached to them and that might partially (and only partially) explain their recent rise in use within the enterprise. I first saw Andrew McAffee's post on uses of Web 2.0 approaches inside of corporations - quite good at identifying some different patterns.

Models for Learning Questions

Tony Karrer

Yammer (internal twittering) is almost impossible to explain to someone who has no experience with any social networking (and probably not with anything more than email lists). As a side note, I think selling Twitter/Yammer is harder than selling social bookmarking and wikis. Social bookmarking and wikis are often a smart replacement with obvious side benefits. 8) We are in the brainstorming sessions of creating a blog and podcast.

Hybrid Worlds

One of the most significant and impactful ones has been acknowledging the fact what once used to be the main good old mantra from different Enterprise Social Networking platforms, it’s now pretty much obsolete having lost its touch with today’s more complex than ever business reality.

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. Question 1 - What are the most likely ways / places your organization might or does use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking or Collaboration Tools?

PLE - PWLE Discussion Contiunes - Corporate vs Personal and IP Rights

Tony Karrer

Clearly this is a different use of PLE's than those outside the firewall, for free rangers, and for learning from everything of personal interest. versus my question: if people will adopt these tools and approaches over time, then as a corporation, if you want to be able to keep the content after an employee leaves, especially blog content. Maybe that simply means making copies of personal blogs that are archived by the corporation in case the employee leaves.
