Google Plus – One Social Networking Tool to Rule Them All

Luis Suarez

Like I have mentioned yesterday, it’s been a few days already since I jumped the shark and joined the bunch of early adopters who have been hammering down, and taking for a spin, the latest iteration of Google to get social with Google Plus , right after Google Wave and Google Buzz.

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.

What tools should we learn?

Harold Jarche

sense-making with social media

Harold Jarche

As Donald notes, sharing and posting on social media are weaker forms of learning than longer form blogging can be. Using social media for learning requires an understanding of how each tool or platform can support your own sense-making. I archive with Diigo social bookmarks.

Harold Jarche

In the field of web social media for workplace performance, what technologies are the Innovators experimenting with? Social Networks. Social Bookmarks. Subject Matter Networks.

Ask what value you can add

Harold Jarche

There is a similar phenomenon with social media. Posting a social bookmark to a service like Delicious does not create additional noise for your networked peers in a social network. I did not post every time I created a new bookmark.

Taking the time to cross the chasm

Harold Jarche

For example: The CEO who doesn’t see the value of social networks and lumps them all into the “Facebook for fun” category. I addressed some of these issues in social media for senior managers , as Michael Cook asked a similar question.

At DevLearn, many people lamented the difficulty of explaining the benefits of social media to their managers and peers. Jane mined the submissions of her delightful tools database and came up with 100+ ways to use social media for learning. Tags: social tools

Ensuring knowledge flow through narration

Harold Jarche

As with knowledge artisans , many learners now own their knowledge-sharing networks. Today, content capture and creation tools let people tell their own stories and weave these together to share in their networks. Narration of work in social networks is flow.

sense-making beyond the outrage

Harold Jarche

I think it is essential for every citizen to be involved in sense-making in the emerging network society. This makes it difficult to promote a platform like Twitter in order to learn about social networks. A number of people I know have recently left Facebook and/or Twitter.

Prepare for the future of work

The Seek > Sense > Share Framework

Harold Jarche

Building a network of colleagues is helpful in this regard. Good curators are valued members of knowledge networks. Sharing includes exchanging resources, ideas, and experiences with our networks as well as collaborating with our colleagues.

Peeragogy

Jay Cross

Show me what others are interested in, as with social bookmarks like Diigo and Delicious. link to your blog and bookmarks, people in your network, links to documents you frequently share, members of your network.

FAQ 206

Informal Learning: “mission critique”

Harold Jarche

We now have a wide array of cheap and plentiful platforms for informal learning – blogs, wikis, social bookmarks, podcasts, social networks, micro-blogs. Digital networks mean that we are no longer limited to reading what has been formally published or talking only to our limited social circle.

Creating your PKM processes

Harold Jarche

A sense-making routine can be regularly reading certain blogs and news feeds, capturing important ideas with social bookmarks and then putting ideas out in the open on a blog. Use Social Bookmarks. Connect via Twitter, follow blogs or join Social Networks.

Instruments of Restraint

Harold Jarche

A learning technology is mostly about branding and I’m more interested in non-educational tools (social networking, wikis, blogs, social bookmarks) in that they are not limited by some pre-conceived notions about learning or a constrained pedagogical framework. This makes little sense in a networked workplace. Learning technologies, by their limiting nature, are instruments of restraint for the networked organization.

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.

Social Networks. Social Bookmarks. Subject Matter Networks. I would say the PLE/PLN is across the chasm, while I now call PKM network learning and Beth Kanter describes a similar framework of networked professional learning.

Harold Jarche

This weekend I noticed a tweet from Alec Couros about some issues with the Ning social networking platform. With social bookmarks, it is easy to export and import OPML files from one platform to another.
