Ego centric networks like Facebook, Linked In, Blogs, and Twitter use human instigated actions as the impetus for social networking.

Do e-learning and social media tools cultivate a generation of workers/society members who cannot communicate effectively when face-to-face?

From the Coleface

Well presumably, more of the same i.e. user interfaces inspired by iGoogle, iPhone apps, Facebook, Twitter…and whatever other websites enter the mainstream. The countervailing trend is the need for more and more systems within an organisation to talk to each other effectively, so that the same data is only stored & updated in one place, but used in many.

For example, if you build something that integrates with Facebook, Twitter, etc. If you can integrate with Facebook, Twitter, or similar products and you have some kind of viral aspect, then that could make you more interesting.

Jay, I agree that it is extremely hard to define effective learning experiences in a chaotic world. My post on learning goals has some great feedback via comments and a couple of blog posts.

Particularly, there still needs to be Learning Outcomes defined.
