There’s a lot of talk about social intranets these days. But what exactly is a social intranet…? Everyone seems to have a different opinion, from a human-centred platform, to the intersection between portals, team sites and social sites , to a system that ties the business’s processes and data to the employee’s social behaviour.

Questioning social media

Clive on Learning

The recent arrival of a new social network in the form of Google+ has given cause for reflection from some long-serving social media users and advocates.

Beyond that, however, social media is getting credit for things it’s merely flowing, not actually creating.

Social Learning Has Its Place…And Informal Learning Does Too.

Social Learning

Two weeks ago Jane Hart wrote an article titled, Social Learning: to be or not to be? , in which Jane expresses her dislike of the term Social Learning (big S, big L).  That being said, I believe Jane’s first misstep occurs when she uses the term Social Learning (big S, big L).  Social media can be an accelerant for social learning, both in formal and informal settings.

By 2006 several social networking sites were enjoying surges in popularity, including MySpace, Bebo and of course, Facebook.
