Transliteracy : Constructing Knowledge and Networks | Library world, new trends, technologies | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it

"This hot whiteboard illustration of the nuances of social media is going the distance.  After sharing it on Facebook & Pinterest, it now appears here in a new context, Transliteracy."


Librarians gathered together for a one-day conference on ARLD Day 2012 (27 April) in Minnesota to engage, discuss and connect on the theme “Transliteracy: Constructing Knowledge and Networks and more.


Lane Wilkinson, Assistant Professor and reference and instruction librarian at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, advocated a new literacy taxonomy in his keynote presentation. Lane shared his views on "Wwhat is Transliteracy?

I shared this on Facebook & Pinterest, but it also belongs elsewhere too, obviously. Thanks for the inclusion.

Cautionary Tales: Real or Fake? The Pinocchio of Full Disclosure on Linkedin

Cautionary Tales:  Real or Fake?  The Pinocchio of Full Disclosure on Linkedin | The Social Media Learning Lab | Scoop.it
When social media goes wrong what usually happens is someone wants to game the system in their favor.


Real or persona?  It was an issue for me when I jumped into social media in 2008, when twitter was new, Facebook was super cool for college kids (and NOT about baby boomers or grandparents accessing family photos) and LinkedIn was still in it's infancy, but drawing attention from recruiters and natural networkers.

Full disclosure is ...used in building trust in blog exchanges, highlighting possible conflicts of interest, which is definitely going on here.

I concluded that real was were it was at, learning from the digital strategy folks, and also seeing there are multiple points of view, like this one, as well as the privacy practices post earlier this week here.


Also, there was no "full disclosure" in this cautionary tale.  Full disclosure is a common statement used in building trust in blog exchanges, highlighting possible conflicts of interest, which is definitely going on here.  


I've also had LinkedIn network members message me privately on how certain LinkedIn users, unknown to me but showing up in my message box, "game" the system to build up their LinkedIn rankings.  In the end, what comes around, goes around, and disreputable networkers will be found out and may be thrown out.

Excerpted:


Sumit (name in discussion) did what most do in Linkedin, he offered his advice on how to best use Linkedin, while another asked the critical question “do we do a disservice to others by insisting linkedin delivers value for all.”


Then, we find out a key contributor to the discussion is a FAKE. 


A key question is, Who’s Ready For Honest Dialogue?  


A take away was that an author of a Linkedin program had thought it was a good idea to create a fake Group profile to make it appear like a third party discussion of their work.
