Don't Underestimate the Power of Social Networks

 

This piece was written by Oscar Berg (@oscarberg) for CMS Wire and curated by JanLGordon covering her topic "Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond" on Scoopit.

 

I was especially drawn to this article in relation to Scoopit, as I know from discussions I've had with Guillaume Decugis, this very much speaks to his vision of what this platform could and should become.

 

**By sharing content and helping each other source, review and curate topics of interest, we stay informed, expand the conversation and contribute to others. It's like a collective intelligence of sorts.

 

**An essential part of community building is giving others credit if you repost their content and thanking them for posting it.

 

Intro:

 

"Since the dawn of time, primates have relied on social networks to help the whole group with their environments.

 

This of course applies to humans and our enterprises as well."

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Understanding the Dynamic of Your Networks

 

Today we also have information technologies such as social software that anyone can use to build, nurture and make use of their informal networks.

 

**And as the informal networks become visible, they become more usable to both individuals and organizations

 

**as we can better understand their dynamics and how to make proper use of them.

 

**In an environment where change is business as usual and being

 

**more responsive, agile and innovative is the only way to adapt to the environment, who can afford not to understand the dynamics of networks and harness their power with the use of social technologies?

 

Why and for how long?

The Coming Shakeup in American Higher Education

The Coming Shakeup in American Higher Education | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it
Due to high tuition, room and board costs that far exceed the ability of students and parents to pay for a college education, education consumers are beginning...

 

... are beginning to vote for lower cost alternatives. Community colleges are bulging at the seams with escapees from high cost “non profit” colleges and universities. But, after two years they have to go somewhere and flagship state universities are expensive. Even two years at a public institution can run in excess of $30,000.

 

With new proprietary institutions, and some non-profits like Liberty University, exploiting the efficiencies of the Internet, alternatives to higher cost institutions are beginning to compete successfully with traditional colleges and universities.

 

 That, of course, is a radical departure from education as we know it which involves someone who knows something about his field, is, hopefully, passionate about his discipline, and conveys that passion and knowledge to his students.

The 5 Critical Social Media Skills You Need To Disperse

The 5 Critical Social Media Skills You Need To Disperse | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Your customers, prospects, and the people looking for you online don’t care about your company structure. If they find you on Twitter, or leave a comment on your blog, they’re looking for a response from anyone who can help, regardless of what department that person represents or what someone’s official job title is.

 

Everybody in your company is in marketing, whether they want to be or not.

 

The people in your company today should have the characteristics and confidence to succeed in this environment. Let the ubiquity and speed of communication empower your staff to act and be helpful, no matter where they are on the organizational chart.

 

Social media and real-time business affects every employee in your organization in some way. Your official social media team—the people tasked with developing and maintaining your social outposts and real-time customer connectivity—are a critical part of your approach. But the rest of your employees are equally important to consider, as many of them will have to incorporate some measure of new responsibilities into their existing job functions...

Battle Bullying by Connecting with Students | TeachHUB | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Teachers play a vital role in creating a sense of community in school. By making connections with students, you can better recognize instances of bullying and play a role in preventing them.

Bullying is a Common Problem

 

According to Stomp Out Bullying, a national anti-bullying and cyberbullying program for kids and teens, one out of four students experiences bullying in person.

 

Over 40% of students have been cyberbullied. That means in a 24-student class, six kids have been bullied face-to-face and at least nine have been harassed online or by text message.
