7 Reasons Why Google+ Drives Hyperactive Engagement

7 Reasons Why Google+ Drives Hyperactive Engagement | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Post by Jeff Bullas very interesting observations

 

"The Google+ Project has drawn the innovators and early adopters into its web and it is producing activities that have surprised myself and others."

 

Intro:

 

In 1962 Everett Rogers published the book “Diffusion of Innovations” where he synthesized research from over 508 diffusion studies and produced a theory that proposed 4 main elements that influence the spread of an idea.

 

1. The Innovation

An idea, practice or object that is perceived as new

 

2. Communication Channels

The means by which messages get from one individual to another

 

3. Time

The relative speed with which an innovation is adopted by members of the social system

 

4. The Social System

The people that are engaged in joint problem solving to achieve a common goal

 

He also outlined the following adopter categories that reveal the percentages of the types of participants that are involved in the innovation cycle.

Nielson Report: What's Really Happening on Social Networks

Nielson Report: What's Really Happening on Social Networks | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Interesting and very informative piece by Brian Solis for Social Media Today.

 

This is part 6 of a series of posts where Brian introduces his new Book The End of Business as Usual.  

 

I must tell you that if you haven't gotten a copy of this book, you should, it is excellent, timely and relevant!

 

To paraphrase - social media is becoming part of our cultural fabric and even as we witness businesses, governments,sports teams, and almost every organization socialize communication efforts today,

 

****much of what we see is merely the beginning of something that will one day become something far more important than the medium itself.

 

****it is about how people are spending their time, interacting and connecting with one another, and what happens as a result.

 

To demonstrate the point, there are some profound findings from the recently released Nielsen Social Media Report.

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?
