If Your Enterprise Social Network Is a Ghost Town It’s Probably Due To Your Corporate Culture

Dan Pontefract

We deployed our enterprise social network last year, but it’s a ghost town. They’re windowless and the carpets look as though designers around the world have colluded with one another to see who can come up with the most bizarre patterns possible.

Introduction to Social Networking

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. Note you can learn more about the concept of ego-centric vs object-centric networks here ). It is also the network of choice for most professionals.

[liveblog] Judith Donath on designing for sociality (“Social Machines”)

David Weinberger

Judith Donath is giving a book talk to launch The Social Machine. I read it this weekend and it is a rich work that explores the ways in which good design can improve our online sociality. Judith begins by saying that the theme of the book is the importance of online social interaction and designing for it. Our interfaces may look sophisticated but they’re primitive when it comes to enabling social interaction. It slowed down a lot of social design.

A Kind of Digital “Perfect Storm”

We seem to be heading toward a kind of digital perfect storm , where four major IT trends are each gathering speed while interacting with and amplifying each other: mobile devices, cloud computing, social networks and big data and analytics.

Social Business in the Age of the Customer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Social Media is one of the hallmarks of our digital age, enabling individuals and communities to create and share user-generated content. Starting about a decade ago with the rise of Web 2.0 , we have seen the explosive growth of social media technologies, - e.g., blogs, wikis and podcasts, - as well as platforms like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube with hundreds of millions of users. Many companies are still struggling with this major cultural transition.

learning in complexity and chaos

Harold Jarche

Most of our current work structures are designed to address complicated situations, such as constructing a building, launching a campaign, or designing a piece of equipment. Sharing on social media is usually cooperative — unless you are in marketing.

The 2010 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Technology is a second major factor contributing to growing complexity: “… creating a world that is massively interconnected, with broad-based convergence of systems of all kinds, both man-made systems like supply chains or cities; and natural systems like weather patterns or natural disasters. But, based on my experience, many companies don’t have this culture of service built deep into their DNA. IBM recently released the 2010 Global CEO Study.

Harold Jarche

The network era, with digital electric communications, changes this. Organizations today should be designed more like the internet ( small pieces, loosely joined ) and less like attractive prisons. The network era needs new structures, not modified versions of obsolete models.

Innovate differentiated services suiting our culture’s needs. Look at user needs to design services. We should reinvent our spaces, from social spaces to high-tech knowledge commons. We generate lots of data, which allows us to be strategic, looking for patterns of use. Where are we in the economic, social, and cultural changes occurring now? The way knowledge, culture, and science are created, distributed, and consumed is changing.

In the mid to late 1990s, the social Web arose. ” The idea that there was a culture with shared values has been dismantled. ” All the social networks operate as common carriers — neutral substrates — except when it comes to monetizing. “Now we have the industry that creates the social network implicitly interested in getting involved in how IP laws evolve.” Social technologies follow patterns.

Ethan on serendipity and cosmopolitanism

David Weinberger

We are not as mobile as we think, and our patterns are more routinized than we’d like to believe. Even if we are well-plugged in to a social network, we’re not going to learn about that which our friends do not know. While social filters are powerful, if they only filter your own network, they are likely to hide more than they show. We should learn from cities when designing Web spaces that enable and encourage serendipity.

The proposition I will offer is that MOOCs give us a new way to understand learning, and hence, a new way to understand certain types of learning, such as for example learning that supports diversity in language and culture.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It''s faking our cultural knowledge generally. Like Learning a Language When we get into this sort of discussion, we wonder, is there a core, a common heritage, which we each share, or rather is each individual, as we just heard, a strand running through the fabric of culture? It''s interesting to think of culture in this perspective, as a type of language ?? culture as something that helps us communicate with each other. These little cultural misrepresentations.
