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.

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. Clay gives an extended, anecdotal example.

Collective intelligence patterns

Clark Quinn

social networking can facilitate work, to actually analyze and distill some underlying principles. In his presentation on The Landscape of Collective Intelligence, he comes up with four characteristics of design patterns (or genes, as he calls them): What (strategy), Who (staffing), How (structure & process), & Why (incentives/alignment). This is a really nice systematic breakdown into patterns tied to real examples.

A social interaction pattern language 2 of 2

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Getting good at social interactions is vital for social learning. We live in a social world. A group is working to develop a pattern language for group process. Others have since applied the term to economics, software design, liberatory communication, and more.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. I have been looking at the world of social networking, and my mind is moving away from the model where we are the experts and package the knowledge and sequence it. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it.

seeing the patterns of those posts then composing a response. A good community manager must be able to skip around, see patterns, scan the whole and then discern if and where to intervene in the system. Social network mapping and analysis skills. Today we are not often working in the confines of boundaried communities (see Post 2) so being able to see and understand the larger network is critical. Ditto for social network mapping and analysis.

The Paucity of Intelligent Design

Re: Why Intelligent Design Is Going to Win This must be comedy Friday at Tech Central Station. Sure, the United States may well turn to a religion-dominated policy and social agenda; it has happened before. intelligent design people! intelligent design people! The point is, intelligent design is a religion-driven anti-intellectual position adhered to (and directed toward) mostly uneducated people, and it is Not Science. Intelligent design and all, you know?

We can think of these as emergent patterns of collective sensemaking.” But I, and many others, have thousands of connections on social media platforms like LinkedIn. Learning is the great opportunity in organizational design today.

Blueprints for Networked Cocreation: 1. Intentcasting - EMERGENT.

Seb Paquet

Ensuring knowledge flow through narration

Harold Jarche

As with knowledge artisans , many learners now own their knowledge-sharing networks. Today, content capture and creation tools let people tell their own stories and weave these together to share in their networks. Narration of work in social networks is flow.

E-Learning 3.0 Course Synopsis

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Getting Ready Connectivism is based on the idea that knowledge is essentially the set of connections in a network, and that learning therefore is the process of creating and shaping those networks. The MOOC environment is designed to support both types of learning.

smart cities need smart citizens

Harold Jarche

With these data, governments, organizations, and companies can sense patterns and make decisions – from traffic control to geographically specific advertising. But this is merely the tip of the iceberg of the real potential of smart cities and digital networks.

Tips 258

Knowledge and Recognition

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Using 'domains' allows us to recognize that *any* network, appropriately constituted, can be a learning and knowing system. I should have said 'entities' instead of 'people', where 'entities' refers to *any* set of entities in a connective network, not just people in a social network. And is the nature of this quality based in the physical properties of the network in which it is instantiated? Observe, for example, a murmuration of blackbirds.

change the system, not the leader

Harold Jarche

It puts too much power in the hands of individuals and blocks human networks from realizing their potential. Depending on one person to always be the leader will only dumb-down the entire network. In the network era, leadership is helping the network make better decisions.

…the baby has gone down the plug hold

Dave Snowden

As interaction happens over time patterns form, and as those patterns stabilise they create irreversible pathways. One of the ways I suggested yesterday is the use of social network stimulation for system design, another the use of mass narrative capture over time using SenseMaker®.

adapting to perpetual beta

Harold Jarche

There is no such thing as a social business strategy. There are only business strategies that understand networks. Cooperative and distributed work is becoming the norm in the network era. Social learning is how work gets done in networks. Social Learning.

Techniques and Tools: How To Visualize Your Network

Beth Kanter

Earlier this month I was lucky enough to attend the CATechFest in LA designed and expertly facilitated by Aspiration. Ari Sahagun , a consultant who works with social justice groups on network visualizations, called for a group to discuss Network Mapping and Visualization.

organizing for the network era

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.

Passion and Plasticity - The Neurobiology of Passion

John Hagel

  Videogames become so quickly engaging for participants in part because game designers have figured out how to sequence quests so that early ones are relatively easy to accomplish and the expectation of future successes releases more and more dopamine, motivating participants to become more deeply immersed in the game and to engage in more and more challenging quests. The brain over time evolves its wiring patterns

Harold Jarche

These disciplines have influenced my professional work which is based on individuals taking control of their learning and professional development and actively engaging in social networks and communities of practice. Building a diverse network of colleagues is helpful in this regard.

Response to Dron

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We''ll discuss this too. -- Let''s let Dron introduce connectivism: The Connectivist account of individual learning, in which the nervous system is understood as a neural network with emergent properties and behaviours resulting from its connections that we describe as ''learning'', is certainly compelling. There is one trivial sense in which every theorist agrees that learning is based on a neural network as described - they agree because they have to.

The necessity of partial constraint

Dave Snowden

In social systems this is generally the easiest way to get people to understand. At LSSC11 I used one of my favorite methods, social network stimulation (SNS) as an example of this.

Alone Together - An Important New Book by Sherry Turkle

John Hagel

Our networked life allows us to hide from each other, even as we are tethered to each other.   As she relates: I tell two stories in Alone Together : today’s story of the network, with its promise to give us more control over human relationships, and tomorrow’s story of sociable robots, which promise relationships where we will be in control, even if that means not being in relationships at all. Sherry Turkle has been on a journey.

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.

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? Presence on social networks is very important. Q: How can professional libraries foster a culture of critical thinking about the new tools, e.g., social networks, Google, etc.?
