I’ll stop using the hashtags now … point taken. Why more organizations haven’t implemented an internal only, micro-blogging platform for their company is mind boggling. According to McKinsey and Company , only 19% of organizations have actually deployed enterprise micro-blogging inside the corporate walls through December, 2010.

The Internet doesn’t do this

Doc Searls

I am knocking the fact that we haven’t come up with the open Internet-based (rather than silo-based) way of microblogging. The above, in order (1,2,3) is what I went through this morning when I searched for “emancipay&# on Twitter. Not knocking Twitter here.

Sharing pointedly or broadly

Clark Quinn

On the other hand, a microblog lets anyone decide to ‘follow’ your quick posts. Typically, microblogs (and chat) are for short messages, such as requests for help or pointers to something interesting. The dialog around a file provides a rich augmentation, just as such can be happening on a blog, or edited RTs of a microblog comment.

Friday’s Finds 183

Harold Jarche

microblogging is the closest we have to human conversation” – by @RossDawson. Microblogs, through their ease of participation and the breadth of their visibility, are excellent facilitators of organizational networks. After 15 years of ‘expertise location’ being on the agenda, microblogs are proving to be one of the simplest and best ways to find the relevant expertise in the organization to address a problem or opportunity.

The Masterclass on Informal Learning

Jay Cross

From this foundation , we explore communities of practice, capturing and disseminating news, knowledge sharing at Intel, experiential learning at Xerox, conversation at HP, volunteerism at SAP, Twitter at Deloitte, product knowledge at BT, and learning from microblogs. Your organization has decided to tilt in the direction of informal learning. Colleagues tell you that it can be faster, better, and cheaper than traditional approaches.

Putting Enterprise 2.0 into Context

Andy McAfee

Narrating your work via blogs or microblogs so that others can find you and access your expertise is a great standalone use case, as is narrating your ignorance — asking questions to the enterprise as a whole without guessing in advance who will know the answer. Three recent posts have done a great job of showing where we are in the spread of Enterprise 2.0 – the use of emergent social software platforms by companies to get work done.

How Narrating Your Work Helps You Become More Effective by Saving Precious Time

Luis Suarez

But it looks like, apparently, there are some potential risks along the way: mainly, knowledge workers not wanting to participate (through blogging or microblogging, as primary examples) due to lack of time , since their day to day workflow seems to be interrupted abruptly due to that lack of integration of social technologies into where the real work happens.

Social Learning Examples

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

She covers blogs, collaborative calendaring, podcasting, feeds, collaborative mind-mapping, microblogging, photo sharing, screencast sharing, presentation sharing, video sharing, social bookmarking, collaborative editing and working and presentations, social networking, personalized start pages, and integrated social/collaborative environments. At DevLearn, many people lamented the difficulty of explaining the benefits of social media to their managers and peers.

Quip: conversations

Clark Quinn

Microblogging (e.g. Conversations are the engine of business. Seriously. How many problems are solved by saying “go talk to <so-and-so>&# , or ideas sparked by conversations around the water cooler? How many times has a chance conversation ended up leading to a new product, service, acquisition, or more? The conversations can be of many types: with co-workers, managers, subordinates, customers, stakeholders.

Let’s move tweeting off Twitter

Doc Searls

Meanwhile, I’m also raising a cheer for whatever Dave is doing toward “building a microblog platform without a company in the middle&#. Blogging, emailing and messaging aren’t owned by anybody. Tweeting is owned by Twitter. That’s a problem. In all fairness, this probably wasn’t the plan when Twitter’s founders started the service. But that’s where they (and we) are now.

The Question I’m Most Often Asked …

Dan Pontefract

When I have a spare moment, I may issue an internal or external microblog about something I’ve learned, or something I’m willing to share. “How do I fit it in?”.

The 7 c’s of natural learning

Clark Quinn

By using tools like blogs for recording and sharing personal learning and information updates, wikis to collaborate, discussion forums to converse, and blogs and microblogs to track what others think are important, we provide ways to naturally learn together. Yesterday I talked about the seeding, feeding, and weeding necessary to develop a self-sustaining network. I referred to supporting the activities that we find in natural learning, for both formal and informal learning.

Learning With and From Others: Restructuring Budgets for Social Learning

Dan Pontefract

Blogs, wikis, microblogging, YouTube-like video sharing, tagging, ranking, virtual worlds, discussion forums, and generally any other form of user-generated content (for learning, communication, and marketing) are both practical and engaging ways to complement the learning strategy of any organization. Social software such as video servers, collaboration platforms, and microblogging tools do in fact require an investment to reap benefit thereafter.

Formalizing informal learning?

Clark Quinn

Wikis are a major advance on top of emailing documents around in many ways, and similarly microblogs have provided new capabilities. The Entreprise Collaborative has a new question , asking whether we can formalize informal learning. I have to say, I don’t get the question. That is, I understand what they’re asking, and like the response they give, but I really think it’s the wrong question.

HubSpot and RentJuice: When New Technologies Meet Old Ways of Working

Andy McAfee

’ This world is marked by blogs and microblogs, video and audio, professional and personal social networks, lead generation and tracking, and non-sleazy SEO. One of the themes I keep harping on here, over at HBR.org , and elsewhere is that digitization is pervasive — it’s affecting every part of the business world.

The new workplace

Jay Cross

Some have so embraced in-house social networking, microblogging, and discussion forums that they define themselves as “social businesses.” Six years ago few people believed that informal learning made much of a difference. Today’s common wisdom is that most workplace learning is experiential, unplanned, social, and informal. Informal learning tops many training department agendas. Companies are attracted by the low price tag. However, few of them are doing much systematically.
