"The only irreplaceable capital an organization possesses is the knowledge and ability of its people;The productivity of that capital depends on how&;effectively people share their competence with those who can use it.” – Andrew Carnegie, 1919.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, October 17, 2013 4:04 AM

With an unprecedented digital data storm raging through the business world, knowledge workers may spend up to 30% of their working day looking for people and relevant information to do their job. A waste of precious time and human resources that can be dramatically reduced by providing employees with appropriate structures, practices and ICT technology —putting mobility, collaboration and knowledge sharing on the foreplan. #kmers #CoPs

"There are two different decision-making choices here and both have pros and cons:

Authoritative or participative. Does your team prefer you to take the decision or do they expect to be involved?Policy-based or fact-based. Does your team respond best to application of the policy or to consideration of the facts of the case?"

New research outlines the six types of communities on the social network and what that means for communication

Stephen Dale's curator insight, March 7, 8:26 AM

A report from the Pew Research Internet Project highlights how researchers have developed six general models of the types of communities on the eight-year-old social network. As Pew's researchers see it, these visualisations represent the clearest picture of what civil society looks like when translated into the sprawling wasteland of the Internet.


One of the major lessons of network analysis, both Pew and Menczer emphasise, is that the Twitter commons hasn’t necessarily made society as democratic as techno-utopians would have you believe. Twitter isn’t a wide-open space, free of boundaries or obstacles: It’s a "mirror," as Menczer says, for the social structures of the real world.

12 distinct social media personalities revealed including ‘Ranters’ and ‘Peacocks’ [infographic] | The Wall Blog

12 distinct social media personalities revealed including ‘Ranters’ and ‘Peacocks’ [infographic] | The Wall Blog | Globally connected | Scoop.it

Do you like to strut your stuff when it comes to social media or do you have a tendency to get involved in protracted Twitter debates? Maybe you prefer to stay on the fringes?

 

Those are just some of the dozen distinct personalities revealed by a research project investigating the extent of the influence of social media in people’s lives.

 

The survey, conducted by online bank First Direct, found that social media, and the technology we use to access it, could be changing our personalities in quite fundamental ways as some of us exhibit traits very different on social networks to those that we have in the real world.

 

Dr David Giles, a reader in media psychology at Winchester University, who helped analyse the findings said that mobile devices in particularly have had a big impact not just on the amount of time we spend using social networks but on our personalities....

The Fall of Collaboration, The Rise of Cooperation

The Fall of Collaboration, The Rise of Cooperation | Globally connected | Scoop.it
It’s the year 2014, and we are trying to do today's jobs with yesterday's tools. As we move into a new way of work -- one based on more fluid and looser connections, grounded in freethinking, humanist and scientific approaches to the social contract -- it's becoming clear that the traditional model of "collaboration tools" is based around outmoded structures of control rather than the shape of our work today, or the nature of networked sociality. We need a different take on th Topic: Social Business.

How to Spend Only 10 Minutes Per Day on Twitter

How to Spend Only 10 Minutes Per Day on Twitter | Globally connected | Scoop.it

The No. 1 complaint from businesses new to social media is: “I just don’t have time.” What these people don’t realize is that social media doesn’t always require a huge commitment, especially Twitter.

As Facebook constantly changes its algorithm and increases preference for promoted posts and ads, turn to Twitter for free and effective small business social networking. Your plan of attack involves two main tools: Hootsuite andTwitter Lists.

Peter Calamia's curator insight, February 23, 1:33 PM

Finally! Businesses can navigate through Twitter in only 10 minutes, but effective minutes. How? By using "Hootsuite". My only question is, would a company find this helpful? I get social media is big, and growing each and every day. But are the big companies finding such things as "Hoosuite" beneficial? I am getting confused by the amount of social media use and shortcuts, connections, and "#hashtags" that people and websites are coming up with. It seems as if these platforms are getting over used, and companies are going to start to hire 9 year old children so they can effectively compete and use "#hashtags". That's right, 9 year olds! How will President Obama possibly fit people as young as nine years old into minimum wage and unemployment debates and policies?
