Overcoming The Challenges of Internal Social Networking

Internal social networks offer numerous collaboration benefits for the average enterprise. They allow for quick, fluid, and constant communication, thereby making it easier for employees to coordinate at all times. They encourage feedback, proposals, and ideas from all workers, thus opening the door for innovation in any shape or form.

The Sunday Times Social List

The Sunday Times Social List

I’m still undecided about these services and applications that purport to measure your social influence (or social equity), mainly because there is very little transparency of the algorithms they use to determine where you rank amongst the “crowd” (understandable I guess, to avoid people manipulating their score), but do I really want to add to my stress levels if I suddenly see my ranking going through the floor? However, I will admit to dabbling with this stuff, mainly to try…

Are you a robin or a magpie?

Are you a robin or a magpie?

I was reading one of Johnnie Moore’s blog posts recently, about positive deviance, where looking at outliers helps people to solve serious real world problems. Johnnie refers to an abstract from The Power of Positive Deviance: How Unlikely Innovators Solve the World’s Toughest Problems, ( published by Harvard Business Press. © 2010 Richard Pascale, Jerry Sternin and Monique Sternin), which in turn refers to a Nasrudin parable about how easy it is to miss the answers that are right before…

Social Networking Competencies for Librarians and Community Managers

Social Networking Competencies for Librarians and Community Managers

The following abstract is from “Social Networking Literacy Competencies for Librarians: Exploring Considerations and Engaging Participation”, Contributed Paper, ACRL 14th National Conference, Pushing the Edge: Explore, Engage, Extend, 14th March 2009 by Joe Murphy and Heather Moulaison.

Is social networking learning?

Is social networking learning?

Great post by Shannon Turlington on the question of whether social networking is learning.  A point often missed in this debate is the serendipity inherent in social networking that enables you to discover new knowledge – i.e. we don’t know what you don’t know until we uncover it. Shannon writes: What I like most about using social networking tools this way is how serendipitous it can be. Sure, I can ask questions or search for knowledge on a subject I…

Social Networking at the Tuttle Club

Social Networking at the Tuttle Club

Possibly one of many self-organising groups that are emerging on the back of the social networking revolution, I attended the Tuttle Club Breakfast yesterday, organised by Lloyd Davis. It was (of course) a great opportunity to meet new people, discover interesting new projects and make new friends. I’m starting to think that “Web 2.0” and “Social Media” are becoming clichés but these were the memes that ultimately connected us. To use Lloyd’s words: Social Media and the new world of…
