Social networking is king

E-Learning Provocateur

Another principle that resonated with me was, in my own words: Social networking is king. Social networking has been around since the dawn of time.

As I've used each of these I've been struck by how easily this format (social sites) could be used as a platform for business learning.

Getting Value from LinkedIn

Tony Karrer

Confusing once you dive into the product – see below. Problems abound within the product – not bugs mind you, just poor processes (IMO).
