Social Networks

Clark Quinn

This week we looked at Social Networks. Here are some thoughts on this topic, especially thoughts around social networks for learning. Starting with Social Networking was a blessing and a curse.

Use social bookmarks to share what you’re reading. Search the Social Web using search engines (solve problems). Put together resources on how to search. You may be surprised how few people know how to search effectively.

Social Learning at TELUS by Dan Pontefract

Luis Suarez

On a rather regular basis one keeps bumping into not only some rather interesting and engaging dialogue amongst your social network(s), but also precious little gems that are worth while sharing across beyond G+.

PKM in 2013

Emergent Knowledge Management

Tony Karrer

Structure would come from a layer on top such as social bookmarking and digg, and, of course, from search across unstructured content. There would be tools like social networks that would allow us to find people inside and outside the enterprise. There's been a long running discussion around what Knowledge Management is going to look like going forward and whether big systems that manage knowledge are going to be there.

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. These were professional associations, networks of researchers and administrators, and others. Communication in a network is not the same as what we may have considered as traditional business communications. If I want to find general information, I search the Web, and quite often find what I need.

Learning to work smarter

Harold Jarche

Now we are becoming networked. In The Learning Age I said that business models and work practices are becoming networked and global, speeding the rate of time to implementation. At an individual level we need to make sense of the ever-increasing signals coming from our networks, while reducing the noise.

Tony Karrer

Social Bookmarking and Wikis and Blogs are a form of social networking I never said this, but several people pointed it out in the chat.

The same thing can be true with social bookmarking, wikis, flickr, etc. Using social bookmarking or meme tracking works okay. Most of us blog to Learn and Network.
