Knoco stories: Self-generated silos - it's worse than we thought. | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
Knowledge Management ideas and models from Nick Milton of Knoco - sometimes provocative, but always grounded in experience.

 

"... social media can fragment into small silos of discussion, and how the wisdom of the crowd can fragment into the self-reinforcement of the clique.

According to a recent post by Ian Wooller, there are now,

26 Alumni groups32 Corporate groups20 Conference groups132 Networking groups16 Nonprofit groups196 Professional groups.
