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.

How Do I Make Sense of Social Networking Tools

Luis Suarez

and while I will be answering the first part over the course of time with the various blog entries I’m currently drafting along, I thought for today I’d focus on trying to answer the second part: how do I make sense of social networking tools today? And SmartCloud for Social Business does that beautifully. I have gone through that path far too many times with other social tools and it’s never been pretty. Reeder : Of course, I still use RSS feeds.

From Social Networks to Communities

Kevin Wheeler

Home About Future of Talent Subscribe Over the Seas Thoughts on Recruiting, Learning and Other Things as I Ramble around the World From Social Networks to Communities by Kevin Wheeler on June 16, 2010 Social media and social networks are all the rage. Over the past half decade the popularity of Facebook, LinkedIn and other networks has soared. To make social networks far more powerful, it is important to evolve them into communities.

What Makes a Social Network Valuable?

Kevin Wheeler

Home About Future of Talent Subscribe Over the Seas Thoughts on Recruiting, Learning and Other Things as I Ramble around the World What Makes a Social Network Valuable? by Kevin Wheeler on July 23, 2009 Is your social network valuable simply because of the number of people you have in it? I have over 10 million first, second and third degree connections in LinkedIn and I get almost no value from that network, per se.

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.

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. We’re getting RSS.

A Review of SAP Jam

Dan Pontefract

SAP describes Jam as follows: SAP Jam delivers social collaboration where you work, connecting customers, partners, and colleagues with information, applications, and processes to solve business-critical problems and to drive results – all in your business applications, on your mobile device, or in SAP Jam. We already were a somewhat social savvy organization, so the participation rate thus far isn’t surprising … although I still believe it could be much better.

Content Curators

Dan Pontefract

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.

They should be engaged in learning socially and informally in order to see what others don’t. Learning informally and socially means connecting our individual work with our teams, communities, and networks. A social booking application can help, e.g. Pinboard, Diigo, Flipboard.

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.

My 25 Years of Ed Tech

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

s easy to forget the importance of the early instant messaging services, because they played such a significant role in developing a lot of the thinking that would eventually result on social networks and more. By 1993 I had written The Network Phenomenon , which is essentially a post-constructivist post-cognitivist theory of knowledge. 1998 – Wikis Also: CMSs, RSS I didn't bother with Wikis. Instead, for me, 1998 was the year of RSS and content syndication.

Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity

George Siemens

social media, participative technologies, it’s not unreasonable to state that at least a segment of society today recognizes information as multi-authored, participative, distributed, and networked. In education, many of us have been advocating for networked learning (or as Stephen Downes and I have been articulating it, connectivism). Academic conferences and even the K-12 space has turned to networks as a way to describe what learning is and how it happens.

Replacing Email?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

My Facebook friends, meanwhile, which peaked at 3000 or so, have *dropped* to 1800 - many people don't want the newsletter in their social networking. RSS as well remains strong, with something like 5000 (or it could be 10,000 - I don't have a good count, just Google Reader stats). There may be a lot of traffic in social networks and instant messaging, but it's personal traffic, replacing what used to be accomplished with a quick phone call.

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.

Facebook as a blogging platform

Euen Semple

Each time social networks die and we all move on my blog is still there. Less comments and less people using RSS to track conversations. Blogging is still one of the most useful and fun things you can do. I still blog at The Obvious? because that is my home on the web and the space I am in control of. Has been for thirteen years (it''s birthday is next month). As people have moved into places like Facebook and Twitter the energy has moved away from blogging to some extent.

A new way to work

Harold Jarche

A network economy can retrieve artisans and guilds, distributing power to those who do the work, and reconnecting thinkers and doers. Corporations, as we know them, are obsolete for a network economy. To ensure that they stay current, they become members of various Guilds, known today as communities of practice or knowledge networks. They have combined the power of network effects with a 20th century corporate capitalist, winner-takes-all approach.

Open Education, MOOCs, and Opportunities

Content Syndication Networks The concept of content syndication originates with the newspaper industry. This was supported using a technology called Rich Site Summary (RSS), co-developed by Netscape and Dave Winer. RSS went through several early versions: RSS 0.91, which was the first production version, RSS 1.0, which used a web technology called Resource Description Framework (RDF), and RSS 2.0,
