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. Social networks have a tendency to be a bit messy. Virginia Yonkers told us - I would like to know how to manage the information flows in social networks. How do we do this in the social network environment? Maybe this is partly design, but it's also how conversation, content spread across social networks.

I've run across a couple of interesting posts recently that seem to have spawned from a Business Week article - Scaling the Social Web. The article tells us that various players are adding social networking features to their sites: A broad array of online players, from major media companies like Viacom to e-commerce providers such as eBay, are adding networking features to their online destinations, letting users create detailed Web identities, connect with people over common interests, share content, and, above all, socialize. how is this new? sort of agree.

Social Network Operating System

Tony Karrer

Their comments around Social Operating Systems is interesting: The issue, and what social operating systems will resolve, is that today's tools do not recognize the "social graph"-the network of relationships a person has, independent of any given networking system or address book; the people one actually knows, is related to, or works with.
