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.

Social Network Portability

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Posted to the social-network-portability list, August 21, 2007. First, social network portability Not coincidentally the name of this list. Not an aggregation of all social networks in the world or anything like that. Think of a person's personal social network on, say, Facebook. Other social networks will roll this their own way. Since OpenIDs are URLs, it could be as simple as an RSS feed or an OPML.

We relied on one another, as strong and weak tie neighbours, often congregating in these buildings to share, to socialize, and to learn. I worry, however, that ‘ Nimby Neighbourhoods’ will supersede actual social relationship building. In other words, rather than extending a physical hand and chiming “hello” to your neighbour, we’ll take nimby-ism to greater heights obfuscating physical relationship building in favour of and solely with those found in social networks and the like.

finding and sharing information

Harold Jarche

Establishing a few procedures can simplify the finding and sharing of information, at work, in your communities, or through your knowledge networks. Tools such as RSS feed readers reduce the cognitive load of finding information. We can connect with people who publish their thoughts and engage with them in person — but often through social media — given space and time restrictions. A social booking tool like Diigo is one example.

Social Media: An Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was asked to contribute my responses to interview questions on social media for a new journal called The Future of Learning and of course I was happy to send some thoughts along. When did you start getting interested in the potential of social media in education and why? It all depends on what you call social media. Most of what we would call the 'social' in social media wasn't there - there weren't any friend lists, zero cat pictures, and no tweets.

Connectivism

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

For me connectivism is the thesis that knowledge is distributed across a network of connections. And therefore that learning consists of the ability to construct and traverse those networks. There are different things that can learn because there are different kinds of networks.

Why Content Curation Should be in Your Skillset

Jay Cross

You expect the curator of an art gallery to know the collection and to: search out the best items. Curation helps individuals keep professional skills sharp, improve critical thinking, earn professional recognition, build reputation, grow personal networks, and “work out loud.” I set up a Google Search for daily news on the topic. and put in search terms and authorities to listen to. Publish on social sites, blog, mail list, and social media.

PKM in 2013

Harold Jarche

“The basic unit of social business technology is personal knowledge management, not collaborative workspaces.” PKM, or learning in networks, is a continuous process of seeking, sensing, and sharing. Building a network of colleagues is helpful in this regard. Sharing includes exchanging resources, ideas, and experiences with our networks as well as collaborating with our colleagues. Sharing through our networks helps to develop better feedback loops.

Making Sense of the World

Jay Cross

The process of seeking out and sharing meaning is a responsibility of enlightened social citizenship. Blogs, via Google Reader for sifting through RSS feeds or suggestions from friends. When I’m researching a specific topic, I turn to other sources to pinpoint what I’m looking for: Searches on Google, Wikipedia, TED talks, YouTube and the knowledge of friends. I use Google to search my own work.).
