Marvel At This Periodic Table Of Social Media | Knowledge Management -People & Technology | Scoop.it

InMotion Hosting have made a graphic in the form of a periodic table. If you were going to try to tell your grandmother how she could advertise her organic blueberry business online, this is what you would use.


It's still confusing, cluttered and ever-changing, but the periodic table provides at least some hope of creating a strategy to navigating the big social media networks. Click on the graphic to see an enlarged view.

The Operations of a Social Business

The Operations of a Social Business | Knowledge Management -People & Technology | Scoop.it

This article from Dion Hincliffe (Dachis Group) talks about 4 key aspects of a social business:

 

1. The totality of an organization’s human activities including any conversations that involve it or are relevant, both inside and outside of the business. These include the day-to-day business processes that keep the organization running, the ad hoc and informal processes of knowledge workers involved in creating new information or dealing with exceptions and edge cases of operations, as well the main digital engagement cycle of the business itself as it interacts with itself and all of its many and varied stakeholders. T


2. The key support functions. These in general are a requirement for social business to operate successfully and include community management, social business transformation  management, and enforcement of corporate policies related to digital engagement, especially including social media.


3. The process of deliberate and intentional enablement of social business at a functional level (as opposed to the people considerations, such as culture change.) - or social business design. This includes strategy development for social business, designed changes to the way that business processes work to be more social, and the creation of new organizational capabilities, infrastructure, architecture to support social business. 


4. The set of processes collectively known as governance, which involves executive leadership and oversight, legal and regulatory support, and partnership with human resources for developing policies, creating training programs, and acquiring and/or developing social business skills ranging from community managers to social architects. A close relationship with the IT department is also needed to create a set of social business tools and platforms that enable the community-based business processes and activities within the organization. And not forgetting security, compliance,  industry regulations, corporate policy and so on.

Learning and the Emerging Science of Behavior Change, aka 'Nudging' | Ben Williamson

Learning and the Emerging Science of Behavior Change, aka 'Nudging' | Ben Williamson | Knowledge Management -People & Technology | Scoop.it

"The emerging field of behaviour change theory suggests new ways in which networked technologies might be used as a form of pedagogical persuasion to influence and shape learners’ behavior, even at the unconscious or irrational level."

 

Comment: A very interesting and thought-provoking reflection on current changes in pedagogical climate, which are very much exemplified by the move towards networked learning. Williamson first notes the prevalence of terms such as softness and openness. This, he contends, amounts to softening up education: "As opposed to the hard education of canonical core content, the softened school of the future does not impose rigid academic barricades against informal learning outside school".

 

This new open education paradigm is characterised by open educational resources, an emphasis on soft skills, and most of all soft (libertarian) paternalism: "policies and practices which are designed in such a way that they are intended to subtly shape and change behavior". This is the nudging referred to in the title.

 

So, in networks for learning, we do not coerce people into doing what we think they should. In stead, we monitor them and try to subtly persuade them to move into the 'right' direction: "The learner enmeshed in digitally mediated networks is forever being nudged from afar rather than instructed; subtly tutored instead of lectured".

 

The problem with this, Williamson says, is that it comes dangerously close to being manipulative: "... as the language of 21st century learning becomes increasingly saturated with new “open” and networked formats and new “soft” behavioral competencies it may become hard to distinguish from the soft control techniques of behavioral optimization programs, soft performance, and other political strategies of subtle psychological persuasion"
Indeed, if you can't get things your way by bullying people, you 'sweet talk' them into it. And whereas bullying is at least obvious (even if you have no way to to escape it), with nudging the victim herself may start to belief this is in her best interest. It is a real danger, but I still prefer arguments, even if they are 'sweetened', as opposed to intimidation. Ultimately, it is a matter of ethics.

 

As much as resarchers should tell their subjects what the experiment is intended for, so should learners be told what they are getting themselves involved in. (peter sloep, @pbsloep)

Do You Know How Social Currency Influences Behavior?

Do You Know How Social Currency Influences Behavior? | Knowledge Management -People & Technology | Scoop.it
Conversation Agent quotes on Influence from Valeria Maltoni It's the age of the connected customer and people are now comfortable using technology to share -- privately or in public.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

How social currency influences behavior

 

**Social influences include peer pressure and social exchange. The latter is stronger than an economic motive.

 

**Most human interactions consist of an exchange of value. From a psychological standpoint, actions like sharing signal desire for self expression, need for validation, and social status recognition, and also simply altruism and affinity with a group or cause.

 

**Both social influences are amplified in public settings.

 

Psychologist Robert Cialdini documented six principles of ethical persuasion:

 

**social proof

 

**authority

 

**affinity

 

**commitment

 

**consistency

 

**reciprocity
