Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Many of my online students are just beginning to understand the impact of social networking on their careers. They are hesitant to engage publically.  Some simply want to hide. A more proactive way of dealing with the reality of social networking is spelled out by the author of this post. 


Clare Munro says in this article, "I believe it requires us to be more thoughtful, more strategic and above all more willing to be transparent."

Social Media Changing Us, Society & the Power of the Human Connection

Social Media Changing Us, Society & the Power of the Human Connection | Online Trust, Reputation and Values | Scoop.it

This wonderful piece was written by Milas Page - it is inspiring, it is true and it's what's is happening to many people as a result of interacting in social media.

 

The author talks about the "social mindset" connecting as human beings is what gets you in the door......

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**The Social Mindset sees the value in collaboration

 

**The Social Mindset cares about others – be it your customers, your employees, or your partners

 

**The Social Mindset lays the groundwork for the importance of listening

 

**The Social Mindset leads you to realize you can help – therefore makes you open to helping when an opportunity arises

 

**The Social Mindset surrounds you with positive thinking and empowers you to realize you can make a change

 

What's the point, she asks? I'm quoting Milas because I couldn't have said it better..........

 

An interaction like the she refers to in this piece is between her and another person whom in the past she would have closed the door  but social media has made her see people in a different light.

 

"Tirelessly one door at a time, trying to activate communities. Now an interaction like that can not only reach me, it can reach you.

 

Messages amplified, reach expanding.Making the human connection is what get’s you in the door."

 

** "Then think about the implications this has in our world, I believe it has many and it’s a good thing. Companies and people who embrace social as a mindset will change this world, one person – one cause, one workplace at a time"

 

How has it changed you?

Rachel Botsman: The currency of the new economy is trust

WHAT’S MINE IS YOURS is about Collaborative Consumption, a new, emerging economy made possible by online social networks and fueled by increasing cost consciousness and environmental necessity. Collaborative Consumption occurs when people participate in organized sharing, bartering, trading, renting, swapping, and collectives to get the same pleasures of ownership with reduced personal cost and burden, and lower environmental impact.

Via Wildcat2030, Annette Schmeling
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This is another great TED Talk. I first heard the phrase 'reputation trail' while watching this video. I've since become intrigued by the concept of collaborative consumption and online trust.

Collaborative consumption as a basis for a reputation economy is a remarkable insight to where we might all be heading. Who will build the Reputation dashboard to measure the worth of your reputation, intentions, capabilities and values across communities and marketplaces? Intriguing presentation.

I'm fascinated by the idea of a 'reputation trail' that builds a person's online presence and authority. 


For students who don't have much real world experience to add to their resume's a personal brand is a way to distinguish themselves to potential employers.  


More than ever, being aware of how you present yourself online is very important!

PERCEPTION IS REALITY; IS IT TIME TO REBRAND ‘YOU’?

PERCEPTION IS REALITY; IS IT TIME TO REBRAND ‘YOU’? | Online Trust, Reputation and Values | Scoop.it
“We’re all guilty of it. You made yourself too available.” – The Sweetest Thing. These days, before a job interview, or even a first date, it is almost required that you research the person you are about to meet face-to-face. As someone types your name into a search engine, the anticipation begins to build. They spend fifteen minutes on your Facebook page, blog, and company website, and now arguably have a decent understanding of who you are, what you stand for, and what lifestyle you lead. However, what if, as your own personal marketing team, you have created a false analogy between yourself and reality? In fifteen minutes, a potential employer has thrown out your application, a client has written you off, and a stranger has the wrong impression.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

As an information fluency specialist I teach people to be skeptical about digital information.  Consider the source.  Who is the author?? Is the person you are communicating with credible?  Most of the time you can answer these questions in a 5 minute search.  


The author of this article undrstands all this, and gives you some common sense advice on managing your online profile.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

A good deal of your traditional reputation is established by your behavior in business transactions. The rise of collaborative consumption and the sharing economy creates a reputation trail that becomes a part of our permanant online history. 


The values you display while participating in collaborative consumption  will have an impact on your experiences and your reputation. The assumption is that a sharing community will reward your good reputation more quickly than the traditional community.
