Sometek – sosiaalinen media, oppiminen ja työ | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

Meneillään on digimurros joka muuttaa perustavasti niin oppimista kuin tietotyötä. Muutoksen keskiössä on internet ja erityisesti sosiaalinen & mobiili teknologia, joka kietoutuu yhä tiiviimmin arkeemme. Teknologian rinnalla kehittyy toimintakulttuuri, jonka tärkeitä aineksia ovat mm. oppivat verkostot, yksilölliset oppimispolut ja jakamisen kulttuuri. Tulevaisuuden kansalaisilta vaaditaan uusia digitaitoja, verkkojulkaisutaitoja ja jatkuvaa oman osaamisen päivittämistä. Seuraa Sometekin blogia ja pysy mukana kiihtyvässä muutoksessa.

How Online Reading Is Changing - And How to Cope!

How Online Reading Is Changing - And How to Cope! | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

One of the curious factors in the new wave of publishing services is that they are restrictive in nature. In all four of the services we mentioned - Medium, Branch, Svtle and App.net - you cannot write to them unless you have been given permission to do so. Essentially, they're read-only by default. In other words, this new crop of services is less democratic than what came before - Tumblr, Wordpress, Blogger and even Twitter.


The reason why they're restricting access is because of a drive for quality. Rightly or wrongly, these companies have decided to tackle the Quality problem by creating gated communities.

Yritys sosiaalisessa mediassa – onko perustus kunnossa?

Yritys sosiaalisessa mediassa – onko perustus kunnossa? | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it
Sosiaalinen media on vain kuppi - kahvi sen pohjalla on sisältöä. Ja sisältöä ei kannata julkaista ensisijaisesti missään ulkoisessa some-palvelussa vaan omassa mediassa (=blogi), joka on 100% hallinnassasi.

Pätee myös kirjastoihin... alustan/perustuksen valinta tosin ei ole aina omissa käsissä.

Sisällöltään köyhät yrityksen kotisivut ovat kohta historiaa. Ne eivät näy hakukoneissa eivätkä leviä sosiaalisessa mediassa. Sen sijaan yritysblogi voi moninkertaistaa kävijämäärät.

5 Reasons Why Web Publishing is Changing

5 Reasons Why Web Publishing is Changing | The Future of Social Media: Trends, Signals, Analysis, News | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"We're witnessing another sea change in Web publishing.

There's a new edge and it's populated by the likes of Medium (a kind of categorized Tumblr), Branch (the sister site of Medium, for discussions), App.net (a microblogging platform) and Svbtle (an elite network of indie bloggers).

 

Here are five key drivers for this new wave of publishing services.

 

1. Publishing Is Getting More Casual:

The publishing process less onerous. It's now less about composition (being a writer or blogger) and more about expressing your thoughts as simply as possible.

Not only is the type of content less formal now, the design is stripped back too. All of the latest web publishing tools have minimalist, in some cases almost naked, interfaces.

 

2. The Web Is Moving From Pages to Streams:

This new wave of tools is looking for ways to deliver content in a more flexible way.

Veteran blogger Anil Dash declared that he wants "a clean, simple stream of my writing, organized by topic and sorted with the newest stuff on top."

 

3. Topic Organization Is Finally Happening:

This is essentially what Medium is attempting to do, with its "collections" - which are posts by various people organized by topic or theme. Content on the Social Web has become far too chaotic and it desparately needs organization.

 

4. Quality Is In Vogue:

The Web is awash with content - much of it poor quality. Medium is explicit about wanting to change this:

"Our philosophy is that quality begets quality, so we will grow Medium smartly, ensuring that our platform is valuable to everyone in this increasingly mobile, connected, and noisy world."

 

5. Startups Are Searching For Non-Advertising Business Models:

Finally, the new wave of publishing services are all seemingly anti-advertising. There is experimentation happening again on the Web - which is a very positive sign..."
