I keep on going back to the same thesis which I started studying a few years back: "all learnings are micro."(See" See" 3-Minutee-Learning "2006) I am beginning to see correlations and movements of events that lead me to conclude and see even clearer what Chris Anderson talks about in "The Long Tail" and applied in the learning world. What is intriguing to me is that we see them as big phenomenons, but in essence they are only huge phenomenons because they consist of micro-worlds that work well together. From a learning perspective, we can call this " Micro-life Learning."

Because it is a powerful social networking tool that is fast becoming a social learning tool. The connotation of the word social is changing from one of "connect" to bring into its fold other meanings like collaborate, learn, share, give, participate, hear, be heard, ask, be answered.This is not a litany in praise of Twitter--it is in support of all social networking sites (SNS) that will help us to collaborate and build collective knowledge.

A lot of the rhetoric surrounding the more popular social networking sites such as FaceBook , MySpace and Bebo seems to be related to the more negative factors such as identity theft, threats to children, breahes in privacy of personal data and copyright theft.

Apparently your choice of social networking site indicates what social class you belong to. recent US research project (by a PhD student mind you) has reported that users of FaceBook are generally toffs from wealthier homes and are more likely to study in further/higher education than that great unwashed working class lot who like using MySpace. guess the fact that FaceBook organises its regional networks on the basis of the colleges or universities its members attended might have something to do with it.?

Still, one can imagine why Second Life went the way of Myspace and Friendster: It lacked a secure aspect. Perhaps players weren’t ready for the ramifications of virtual reality as a daily occurrence, and today Second Life , while still functional, is more geared toward business applications; think virtual trade shows and private worlds for corporate social networks.
