Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

As our Work Literacy Ning site (2008) is in danger of getting bumped off the Net due to Ning’s new pricing policy , I will post some of the key articles here so we don’t lose them. There are several different online social networks, but for our purposes, we’ll focus on the three that tend to be used the most by learning professionals–Facebook, LinkedIn and Ning. As a learning professional, you will want to think of Ning in two ways.

Remote Collaboration

Tony Karrer

It resulted in a great learning experience and a quite good resource. Asynchronous Discussion I personally have found that Ning works great as a tool for all sorts of different needs.

Tony Karrer

Ning or LinkedIn Groups LinkedIn to find individuals LinkedIn to ask questions - via Answers Twitter (only if you've participated quite a bit) The issue with Twitter and posting questions through a blog is that you only will get responses from your existing audience.

Brandon Hall Network - Back from the Dead?

Tony Karrer

We've been building this for a large part of the past year, constantly tweaking the service and offering new capabilities in order to make it the premier place for learning professionals and talent managers to collaborate, share resources and make new connections. Maybe Brandon Hall or a Ning community will take off. Or maybe someone like ASTD will adopt Ning and give it a huge push.

Social Networks

Clark Quinn

I have been part of Ning groups before, but find it overwhelming, very quickly because there seems to be multiple inputs for information. Even as an organizer, when I get into the Ning group, I feel overwhelmed.

I don't know about ning or even facebook.

What Not To Build

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These became platforms (see above) and then we had social network multiplier sites, like Ning. Collaborative and community-oriented systems for resource management and decision-making will be a fertile field in the future. Print / paper Paper is a resource-intensive industry and will become more and more expensive over time. I get to play a government scientist on the internet.

Social Networking

Tony Karrer

I actually think that Facebook and Ning are heading in the right direction by becoming platforms for social networking solutions. LinkedIn requires even less ongoing work and is a FANTASTIC resource when you are looking for expertise. I've run across a couple of interesting posts recently that seem to have spawned from a Business Week article - Scaling the Social Web.

FAQ 2

The social media I use

Nancy White

Otherwise it is too much and it hogs a lot of resources on my older desktop computer. Ning - not so much that I would choose it, but many of the groups and networks I belong to have chosen it. Also, there should be more ability to link between Ning communities, IMHO.

Hebb, 2002) In human communities, Hebbian mechanisms can be seen in the connections that form between people who have similar interests; what creates the connection is not the interest itself, but rather, the fact that such people tend to read the same resources, comment on the same websites, and appear at the same events.
