Re-imagining Twitter
Example of how making it complex changes its potential. There's nothing intuitive about categories and stories: they are social concepts imported to bootstrap connection. What they do is make contextual information explicit rather than implicit. That adds to what can be carried by 140 characters. Ease of use gives way to augmentation. The link to lowercase capital in the subhead of the article is both a prominent move and a declaration of alignment (calling attention to itself *because* it's in the subhead). If we make it more complex, more people will use it!

Personal, Not Private | Gardner Writes
Gardner weighs in on revealing the personal not only as shareable but valuable. "I think those aspects of the person that are not private not only can be shared but ought to be shared. This is what we mean when we tell writers they should find their own voices. This is what we mean when we say we seek to “know as we are known,” as Parker Palmer insists. This is what we mean when we talk about “integration of self,” when we speak of our concern for"

The Fickle Fame of Twitter - Boing Boing
One for the #en3177 crowd on getting a handle on Twitter. "I’ve since used my twitter – which was changed to @inthefade last year - for self-serving good by promoting my freelance writing, but I’ve also realized twitter’s potential for worldly good by utilizing it to launch to a toy drive for children affected by Sandy. That – five years after I joined twitter – was probably the moment in which I realized what a vast social media reach can be used for."

Losing interest in social media: there is no there there
George Siemans placing social media (FB, Twitter, g+) in its place. Ephemeral. Distribution. Theres a place for the ephemeral, the emotive, but the considered work is foundational. I was thinking the same thing - even g+ is California - but more as a matter of pace and obligation: g+ and others demand a pace and regularity that I'm just not interested in engaging. Nor are many of my students.

"What has Twitter and Facebook done for me? Nothing, really. Other than perhaps attending to my emotive needs of being connected to people when I’m traveling and whining.
Social media=emotions.
Blogging/writing/transparent scholarship=intellect.
Put another way, Twitter/Facebook/G+ are secondary media."

apophenia » Blog Archive » Facebook and “radical transparency” (a rant)
radical transparency.” In short, Kirkpatrick argues that Zuckerberg believes that people will be better off if they make themselves transparent. Not only that, society will be better off. (We’ll ignore the fact that Facebook’s purse strings may be better off too.) My encounters with Zuckerberg lead me to believe that he genuinely believes this, he genuinely believes that society will be better off if people make themselves transparent

How Social Media is Affecting the Way We Speak and Write
Light weight observations on social media, ending with the inevitable "it all depends" "There is no single right or wrong way to assimilate “social speak” into our lives and work — it all depends upon your own time and tolerance, your setting, your colleagues, and even the image you want to project. For better or for worse, though, we are all in a new world of communications — and most of us will have to learn the new language."

VoiceThread - Group conversations around images, documents, and videos
Yet another social media exchange. Similar to a wiki page in that comments and layers are associated with the specific target. Unlike a wiki and more like a blog in that the target itself is not modified but layered. But the layering is interesting. It means that a target can have different sets of commentary and notes: a different story for the same diegesis, different emphases of the same ground ...

The Ed Techie: Social media learning principles
Martin Weller on six principles to keep in mind while designing networked instruction.
1. <embed> is the universal acid of the web – we should build around it.
2. Simple with reach trumps complex with small audience.
3. Sharing is a motivation to participation - so make it easy and rewarding to do.
4. Start simple and let others build on top
5. Providing limitations frames input (Cf twitter, 12seconds, etc)
6. Complexity resides in the network not the application

I’m So Totally, Digitally Close to You - Clive Thompson -
Updates and weak ties. Always on means a return to village life, where everyone knows what everyone else is doing. Monitor your online persona so you can control it. "This is the paradox of ambient awareness. Each little update — each individual bit of social information — is insignificant on its own, even supremely mundane. But taken together, over time, the little snippets coalesce into a surprisingly sophisticated portrait of your friends’ and family members’ lives, like thousands of dots making a pointillist painting. This was never before possible, because in the real world, no friend would bother to call you up and detail the sandwiches she was eating." "“It drags you out of your own head,” she added. In an age of awareness, perhaps the person you see most clearly is yourself. "

The Conversation Prism
A PR piece version of Rhetoric 101. Useful and revealing for the language the authors use to frame their version of social exchange - even while they hold themselves up as non-experts.

"People aren’t lured into relationships simply because you cast the bait to reel them into a conversation.

"Sincerity extends beyond the mere act of creating a profile on Twitter or forming a fan page on Facebook or a group on LinkedIn. The dual definition of transparency serves very different forms of both genuine and hollow separated by intent and impression. Relationships are measured in the value, action, and sentiment that others take away from each conversation. Talking “at” or responding without merit, intelligence, or quality grossly underestimates the people you’re hoping to befriend and influence.

"If participation were this simple, then perhaps everyone would excel as a Social Media “expert.”'
