Wanderingsalsero, name one other platform that gives the same features across devices and OSes and also name one that integrates a real-time meeting option supported by VoIP. Then we can discuss further.

How Did Howard Rheingold Get So “Net Smart”: An Interview (Part One)

How Did Howard Rheingold Get So “Net Smart”: An Interview (Part One) | SocialMediaDesign |

By Henry Jenkins


Howard Rheingold has been one of the smartest, most forward thinking, most provocative writers about digital culture for the past several decades. He’s someone who always makes me think. Even a short hall way chat with Howard at a conference can lead to transformative insights about how we live within a networked culture. I have been lucky to know him for more than two decades now, and I treasure every interaction I’ve ever had with the guy.


Your progression from work on virtual communities to smart mobs to digital literacies says something about the evolution of digital culture over the past few decades. What has led you right now to focus so much on giving everyday people the skills they need to more meaningfully participate in the new media landscape?



(E-Learning Students!  I highly recommend this series of articles to anyone seeking a solid conntext for the work we are doing in social communication. ~ Dennis)

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators

How Twitter is Reinventing Collaboration Among Educators | SocialMediaDesign |


Before the advent of Twitter, most educators I know had limited opportunities to collaborate with colleagues outside their building. Some subscribed to listservs or participated in online forums, but these outlets lacked critical mass; teachers also networked at in-person conferences and training sessions, but these isolated events didn't provide ongoing support.


Enter Twitter. I've heard many educators say that Twitter is the most effective way to collaborate and that they've learned more with Twitter than they have from years of formal professional development.


Here are some of the specific ways educators are using Twitter to collaborate:

Twitter provides a great opportunity to collaborate with educators outside of your local physical community. The exchange of ideas and perspectives can reenergize your career. “Twitter is often just the introduction — the virtual handshake that opens the door to a deeper collaboration”

You Are What You Curate: Why Pinterest is So Hot

You Are What You Curate: Why Pinterest is So Hot | SocialMediaDesign |

This piece was written by Om Malik for Gigaom


The author says "Pinterest is one of the hottest startups around these days and represents the latest buzzword in the Valley: curation".


Here's what you need to know:


2012 will likely see an acceleration of structured, push button, social curation across the web. Why? Because most users don’t want to take much effort to produce content, and consuming content in a structured manner (especially photos) is also much faster.


**Just as the first wave of social media has transformed the consumption of information,


**this next wave of social curation will fundamentally change how users find and interact with content over time.


My commentary:


 As a business person, I see tremendous value in Pinterest because as the title of this article suggests, what we post online tells a story about who we are, what we represent and shows a human side through our curated topics. This allows others who may be potential customers to find points of connection which is a great way to start a relationship. It also gives me a chance to listen by observation to what my audience wants at a deeper level. This is a great starting place and can lead to many opportunities that lie ahead.




**platforms — YouTube, WordPress and Tumblr — have had more success, thanks to faster, cheaper broadband connections. Twitter and Facebook are the big winners of this sharing.


**Are thinking about building a product, evaluating a company or just wondering why early adopters are so crazy about Pinterest, or Quora?   


**we’re playing a role in a movie: edited, directed and starring us.

I really don't know why Pinterest is so "hot". I use Fancy ( instead (it has an android app, that's why, nothing else).

Collective Intelligence | Conversation | Edge

Collective Intelligence | Conversation | Edge | SocialMediaDesign |

Tom Malone's MIT Center for Collective Intelligence is emerging as the single most active researchsite for studying augmented collective intelligence. -- Howard


"If we want to predict what's going to happen, especially if we want to be able to take advantage of what's going to happen, we need to understand those possibilities at a much deeper level than we do so far. That's really our goal in the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence, which I direct. In fact, one way we frame our core research question there is: How can people and computers be connected so that—collectively—they act more intelligently than any person, group or computer has ever done before? If you take that question seriously, the answers you get are often very different from the kinds of organizations and groups we know today."

5 Hot Tips for Brands to Connect With Consumers on Pinterest

5 Hot Tips for Brands to Connect With Consumers on Pinterest | SocialMediaDesign |

This piece was written by Lauren Drell for American Express Open Forum -





We've all been hearing a lot about Pinterest lately, so you're probably wondering whether you should take the plunge and create a profile for your company.


****We say you go for it, especially if women are your target consumers–70 percent of pinners are female.


**Pinterest has a highly engaged audience–a reported 3.3 million users logging more than 421 million page views–so there's plenty of opportunity for brands to flesh out pinboards and catch pinners' eyes.


"Join these brands' efforts of staying ahead of the social media curve by joining–and having fun with– Pinterest".


Here's what caught my attention:


****Beyond pushing one's products, you also can use Pinterest as a way to convey your company culture–post pictures of the office, the mascot, people's cubicles, lunch breaks and office events. Fans are interested in these details, and this imagery helps to humanize the brand.


For a look at what some brands are already doing on Pinterest, check out the roundup below. Perhaps they'll inspire your own boards.


Here's just one brand example........


West Elm: The furniture brand posts images of various rooms–bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens–to inspire the interior designer in you. By showering you with beautiful homes, it gets you thinking about nesting without taking an overtly sales-y approach.


My commentary:


This article says 70% of pinners are female and that may be true for today but this is just the beginning and lots of men are starting to pin as well. I see all kinds of possibilities here for many brands aiming at women or men. Like I told people in 1994 when the web was just beginning and there weren't many people online, it's a good idea to put your stake in the ground now as it's evolving because this is going to be big!


I can speak from experience, Pinterest is amazing on so many levels. Think of it as a new restaurant, you don't just eat in one place do you? Don't put your social networking campaign in one or two baskets, get on board for a very interesting ride. Please feel free to comment or share any experiences you're having, would love to hear from you and follow you there too:-).

Screen-Sharing Comes To Google+ Hangouts

Screen-Sharing Comes To Google+ Hangouts | SocialMediaDesign |

If you were waiting for Google to release a screen-sharing feature inside the Hangout real-time collaboration platform, that time has come.


In the next 48 hours Google will be rolling out to all Google+ users the ability to screen-share during any hangout session.


From Christopher Johnson G+ post: "When we launched Hangouts with Extras last September, we wanted to test new features and get feedback from users.


We’ve learned a lot over the past few months, and today we’re rolling out a new Hangouts look and feel that incorporates some of the “extras,” and better reflects Google’s overall design ( ).


Highlights include:


- Screensharing: share what’s on your computer screen with everyone in the hangout. This is the first of many extras we’re graduating to Hangouts proper.


- Bigger video: we’ve put more emphasis on the live video itself by optimizing white space and other screen elements."
