What Does the Social Enterprise Look Like? [infographic]

What Does the Social Enterprise Look Like? [infographic] | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

“Social” is definitely receiving its fair share of attention these days and that promises to only accelerate when things like Facebook buying Instagram for a billion dollars (yes, Billion…with a “B”) happen."

 

"Looking beyond the social, mobile, local aspects of a company like Instagram and to how companies can benefit from their employees’ social graph is this awesome infographic on the Social Enterprise from Gist."

 

"Some good data here including many stats that point to the early stages of adoption and comfort that companies have with permitting social access from the workplace."

 

Suggested by Arik Rizer and Jan Gordon covering "Content Curation, Social Business and Beyond"

Knoco stories: Self-generated silos - it's worse than we thought.

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. I cited the fact that there were over one hundred Knowledge Management discussion groups on Linked-in as an example oif how discussion can fragment into silos.

It's worse than I thought.
According to a recent post by Ian Wooller, there are now,

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

All purporting to cover Knowledge Management.

That's a total of 422 groups."

Weston Library Warms to the Role of Meeting Place - The Daily Weston

Weston Library Warms to the Role of Meeting Place The Daily Weston

 

"Karen Tatarka, head librarian at the Weston Public Library, gives a tutorial on one of the Kindles now offered for check-out.

 

During the Oct. 29 snowstorm the Weston Public Library became a gathering place and communications hub for residents who had lost their power. It was a place where Westonites could interact with the outside world, get on the Internet, charge their cell phones or simply warm up and chat with friends.And that's the way Karen Tatarka, director of the library, likes it.

 

“When it comes down to it, this really is an open space for the public, and we like to look at it as a community space rather than a library space,” Tatarka said.

 

Over the years, libraries throughout the country have been remodeled and updated, both internally and externally, to adapt to technological change, and the Weston library is no different. “I think as our society changes, we have to change with them,” Tatarka said."
