Corporate Social Bookmarking Tools

Tony Karrer

I was just asked on twitter about use social bookmarking tools that work behind the firewall. 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 I thought I had blogged about this before, but I'm not finding the post.

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 also act as a type of social networking tool.

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.

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. Bookmarks – to facilitate searching for links to information, discover what sources other people are following, locate experts.

Learning Organizations, eLearning 2.0 and Edupunk

Clark Quinn

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? If you have a population of learners who have already adopted tools (such as blogging and social bookmarking) for themselves that are different than the corporate tool (the LMS) do you ask them to move? It makes sense in many of these cases to keep it inside the firewall.

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. Just compare informal learning on the web with what happens inside the firewall. The simplest and easiest way is to replicate the tools and processes used on the open Internet – blogs, micro-blogs, social networks, social bookmarks, etc.

Web 2.0 Tools in the Enterprise

Tony Karrer

Then I saw Bill Ives Is Blogging Inside the Firewall an Oxymoron? I'd also suggest that part of the reason that I always suggest that Wikis will get faster uptake than things like Blogs and Social Bookmarking is that Wikis can be a better replacement for something else without much behavior change. 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. We wrapped up our free elearning webinar on Models for Learning in a New World.

Hybrid Worlds

elsua: The Knowledge Management Blog

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

Question 1 - What are the most likely ways / places your organization might or does use Blogs, Wikis, Social Bookmarking, Social Networking or Collaboration Tools? IBM I only briefly mentioned how other organizations are adopting these tools in a big way - The Wall Street Journal - June 18 2007 - social networking at IBM 26,000 registered blogs. Firewalls - You can certainly install tools behind the firewall.

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. then shouldn't you make sure you provide these tools now rather than having tools adopted that are outside the firewall and personally owned where you will lose the content if the employee leaves? In other words, maybe all we do is keep a copy of all RSS feeds, social bookmarks, wiki pages, etc.
