How Do I Make Sense of Social Networking Tools

Luis Suarez

In one of my earlier blog posts from last week, I got asked the following question: “ So, what we all want to know is what have you been doing and what/where can we find you in the future? ” And SmartCloud for Social Business does that beautifully.

From Social Networks to Communities

Kevin Wheeler

Home About Future of Talent Subscribe Over the Seas Thoughts on Recruiting, Learning and Other Things as I Ramble around the World From Social Networks to Communities by Kevin Wheeler on June 16, 2010 Social media and social networks are all the rage. Over the past half decade the popularity of Facebook, LinkedIn and other networks has soared. To make social networks far more powerful, it is important to evolve them into communities.

The social Web before social networks: a report from 2003

David Weinberger

The Web was social before it had social networking software. It just hadn’t yet evolved a pervasive layer of software specifically designed to help us be social. a new class of application, unsurprisingly called “social software.” But what sort of sociality were we looking for? The two talks, especially Clay’s, serve as reminders of what the Internet looked like before social networks. We’re getting RSS.

What blogging was

David Weinberger

At a recent Fellows Hour at the Berkman Center the topic was something like “Whatever happened to blogging?,” ” with the aim of thinking about how Berkman can take better advantage of blogging as a platform for public discussion. They asked me to begin with some reflections on what blogging once was, because I am old. I understand that I’m reporting on how blogging looked to someone in a highly privileged position. My blog was me.

Blogs in Education

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What is a Blog? A blog is a personal website that contains content organized like a journal or a diary. Readers catch up with blogs by starting at the top and reading down until they encounter material they’re already read. Though blogs are typically thought of as personal journals, there is no limit to what may be covered in a blog. While the earliest blogs were created by hand, blogging becam widely popular with the advent of blog authoring tools.

What Makes a Social Network Valuable?

Facebook as a blogging platform

Euen Semple

Blogging is still one of the most useful and fun things you can do. I still blog at The Obvious? Each time social networks die and we all move on my blog is still there. As people have moved into places like Facebook and Twitter the energy has moved away from blogging to some extent. Less comments and less people using RSS to track conversations. I, like many bloggers, used to post links to my blog posts on Facebook or Google+.

Social Network Portability

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Posted to the social-network-portability list, August 21, 2007. First, social network portability Not coincidentally the name of this list. Not an aggregation of all social networks in the world or anything like that. Think of a person's personal social network on, say, Facebook. Other social networks will roll this their own way. Since OpenIDs are URLs, it could be as simple as an RSS feed or an OPML.

Introduction to Social Networking

Introduction to Social Networking. Online social networks facilitate connections between people based on shared interests, values, membership in particular groups (i.e., They make it easier for people to find and communicate with individuals who are in their networks using the Web as the interface.

World wide puddle

I blog about real life; I talk about the internet. We want to be interrupted, because each interruption—email, tweet, instant message, RSS headline—brings us a valuable piece of information. To turn off these alerts is to risk feeling out of touch or even socially isolated.

Why Content Curation Should be in Your Skillset

Jay Cross

They have the same job but instead of paintings, deal with digital artifacts such as: blog posts and Tweets. Curation helps individuals keep professional skills sharp, improve critical thinking, earn professional recognition, build reputation, grow personal networks, and “work out loud.”

A new way to work

Harold Jarche

A network economy can retrieve artisans and guilds, distributing power to those who do the work, and reconnecting thinkers and doers. Corporations, as we know them, are obsolete for a network economy. Networks are not markets.

Social Media: An Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was asked to contribute my responses to interview questions on social media for a new journal called The Future of Learning and of course I was happy to send some thoughts along. When did you start getting interested in the potential of social media in education and why? It all depends on what you call social media. Most of what we would call the 'social' in social media wasn't there - there weren't any friend lists, zero cat pictures, and no tweets.

Content Syndication Networks The concept of content syndication originates with the newspaper industry. This was supported using a technology called Rich Site Summary (RSS), co-developed by Netscape and Dave Winer. RSS went through several early versions: RSS 0.91, which was the first production version, RSS 1.0, which used a web technology called Resource Description Framework (RDF), and RSS 2.0,

PKM in 2013

E-Learning Generations

During the development of this second generation we saw theconsolidation of computer-based software and content, and the commercializationof the network itself. Meanwhile, the world of networks began to commercialize.Commercial bulletin board services emerged, such as Prodigy, AOL, GEnie andCompuserv. The network was by this time well into the process ofbecoming consolidated. is social software. is as much about mobile computing as it is about social software.

Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity

George Siemens

social media, participative technologies, it’s not unreasonable to state that at least a segment of society today recognizes information as multi-authored, participative, distributed, and networked. In education, many of us have been advocating for networked learning (or as Stephen Downes and I have been articulating it, connectivism). Academic conferences and even the K-12 space has turned to networks as a way to describe what learning is and how it happens.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To me, the theory is and always has been ‘learning networks’. This is a play on words: it is in part a theory about using networks to support learning, and in part a theory about how networks learn. It led me to propose content syndication networks in education, and to embrace social media in education. I outlined my theory in the paper ‘Learning Networks’ in 2004 [link] and George wrote his important paper also in 2004.
