On TrDev, we've been discussing the sharing of links via forum posts vs. social bookmarking tools such as del.icio.us. I've discussed this before: Social Bookmarking Tricks for Group Learning Personal and Group Learning Using Web 2.0 Tools But it might be worth looking at how Nancy White has been doing this. See her recent post about Second Wave Adoption and her follow-up post on Time to Experiment. She lets folks know to use the del.icio.us

sense-making with social media

Harold Jarche

LinkedIn is a useful professional tool. 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.

What is your PKM routine?

Harold Jarche

I use only a few tools or platforms on a regular basis. I use social bookmarks a lot and will favorite on Twitter to create my Friday’s Finds. The most important aspect of PKM is that it is personal.

Why microblogging has moved to the heart of enterprise social initiatives

Of all the social media platforms microblogging is the most akin to conversation,” he said. in January 2009, I included in the “Tools” section Wikis, Blogs, Social Networks, RSS and Syndication, Social Bookmarking, and Microblogging.

Free Your Bookmarks: This is a very simple shift that only requires a slight deviation from a common practice: saving bookmarks/favourites on your browser. Using tools like Diigo , or Delicious moves them off a single device, makes them more searchable, and (later) makes them shareable.

Ensuring knowledge flow through narration

Harold Jarche

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. Make it the default action by offering entrance into social networks to everyone.

Social tools for networks

Harold Jarche

For example: Social bookmarks let me tag and search a wide array of bookmarks and by making them public they are shared with others, but through no extra effort on my part. Just providing access to knowledge creation and capture tools is a relatively easy first step in moving the organization to Enterprise 2.0 ; an essential step in working in complex networks versus complicated markets. tools can be sold on their value to the individual.

Harold Jarche

Early Tools. In addition, I played with several feed readers (currently Feedly) and a series of social bookmark platforms (Furl; Magnolia; Delicious; Diigo). As knowledge workers or citizens, PKM is our part of the social learning contract.

The Seek > Sense > Share Framework

Harold Jarche

PKM may be an individual activity but it is social as well. Research shows that work teams that need to share complex knowledge need tighter social bonds. Social networks, on the other hand, encourage diversity and can sow the seeds of innovation.

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.

Manual, not automatic, for sense-making

Harold Jarche

The actual tools I use for personal knowledge management are quite limited. I prefer simpler tools that force me to think and connect by myself. I started Friday’s Finds three years ago , in an attempt to make my finds on Twitter more explicit.

Web 2.0 Tools in the Enterprise

Tony Karrer

I'd also suggest that part of the reason that I always suggest that Wikis will get faster uptake than things like Blogs and Social Bookmarking is that Wikis can be a better replacement for something else without much behavior change. Not really - see Use of Wikis as Compared to Other Tools. I first saw Andrew McAffee's post on uses of Web 2.0 approaches inside of corporations - quite good at identifying some different patterns.
