Harold Jarche

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.

Jay Cross

What Universities Must Learning About Social Networks. Increasingly, businesses are looking to more social approaches to employee learning and development.

Social Networking Gets Serious – #prayforjapan

Luis Suarez

One of the main inhibitors with regards to a successful adoption of social software within the enterprise that I keep bumping into from fellow knowledge workers and, specially, their managers!, is that perception that social networking, you know, “things&# like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the like are just for fun. Social spaces where you goof off at work and get away with it, because they are all hyped and everything, and everyone needs to be there.

Reflections on Twitter and social networking

Clark Quinn

I’ve been using Twitter for a number of weeks now, and that, combined with several recent social networking activities prompted this reflection. There’s lots more for me to learn, of course, but there are powerful reasons to blog about it along the way as well. I find blogging personally beneficial to cause me to take time to reflect, and that’s one of the best investments you can make in effectiveness.

Expert Level Answers via Social Networks

Tony Karrer

One of the interesting points raised via the discussion: If you can get an expert level answer by asking for help through social networks how does that compare to being an expert? I regularly use LinkedIn for Finding Expertise and Searching for Expertise - LinkedIn Answers. That happens all the time and is made even harder by the fact that confidence level about answers is inversely proportional to expertise (see Vic's comment in Social Media Conversations ).

Risk of Identity Theft Due to Social Networking and Blogging

Tony Karrer

The more one you participate in blogs, discussions groups and other social networking tools, the more information there is about you in the world for anyone to access. The basic guidelines I have is not to put anything in my blog, on a social network, even when I register on a site (even when that site is supposed to keep the information private) that I wouldn't want to be public. I'm curious if anyone does believe that blogging, social networking, etc.

Why Blogging Still Matters

Luis Suarez

It’s been a little while since the last time that I had a chance to write another post over here in this blog, so I guess it’s now time for another experiment then. No, I know what you may be thinking, but I am not going to stop blogging nor give up on writing for that matter. I still feel it is one of the very few pleasures out there on the Social Web, and still rather relevant , apparently. As in where can I find the time to blog?

Content Curators

Dan Pontefract

We relied on one another, as strong and weak tie neighbours, often congregating in these buildings to share, to socialize, and to learn. I worry, however, that ‘ Nimby Neighbourhoods’ will supersede actual social relationship building. In other words, rather than extending a physical hand and chiming “hello” to your neighbour, we’ll take nimby-ism to greater heights obfuscating physical relationship building in favour of and solely with those found in social networks and the like.

On my 3rd Twitter birthday: 7 reasons Twitter is central to my life

Trends in the Living Networks

The primary reason I held off getting started on Twitter was that I felt that my blog was my primary space for content sharing, and I didn’t want to divide my limited spare attention across platforms. I now know that blogs and Twitter are highly complementary. In contrast to most social networks, Twitter provides a space for unbounded conversation. In Living Networks I wrote how technology facilitates human connection. Twitter enhances and redefines blogging.

Learning and micro-blogging

Harold Jarche

Nicole Melander’s Why I Hate Twitter and Why I Love Twitter posts about a Social Networking and Business class are also of interest to educators. That may make Twitter, like blogs, best suited for personal learning environments (PLE) in academia, so that learners can use it for several courses and connect to their non-academic networks as well. This lets me tune my network to get better signal and less noise. Twitter & blogs foster broadening networks.

Social Net-Work-Life Balance

Seeing as it’s been almost 3 years since I’ve been with the likes of Facebook , LinkedIn and Twitter (at various entry dates) I thought it would be interesting to analyze my own personal / professional network to understand if any trends might be occurring.
