Editor’s note: Twitter’s end of year round-up is worth looking around (there is plenty of it). Great example of how to present data as well as to see what people have been talking about on a global level.
Browsing: social media
Editor’s note: Only 32% of employees use social media for L&D and other stats from recent CIPD research into social media.
Editor’s note: Research from the CIPD shows that workers are using social tools outside of work but far less inside work. Still some work to do by organisations then . . .
Editor’s note: Nothing like a good social media/productivity scare story to focus the mind on how social media can help boost productivity.
Editor’s note: Good to see stats that might challenge perceptions around social media usage. Look at the fastest growing cohort on Twitter, for example.
Editor’s note: Analysis of how we use language across social media sites to describe personality, gender, and age and how personality and behaviour can be mapped through language analysis.
Editor’s note: Twitter is set for a redesign soon. So what’s coming?
Editor’s note: A look at the Readmill app that turns every book into a social network. Could this be the future of ebooks? And how could L&D use this approach to content?
Editor’s note: In the light of threats and more and more trolls, Paul Mason looks at the future of Twitter.
Editor’s note: Depressing stats for those organisations that see senior team buy-in as a part of the secret sauce for social media success.
Editor’s note: Bit left field this one but it makes a good point – that social media used as just another communications channel misses the opportunity that this transformational technology brings. A lesson for L&D maybe?
Editor’s note: Great curation of social media policy videos from @allthingsIC – also a lesson in the power of creating playlists on Youtube.
Editor’s note: The social physics of highly connected crowds based on the uprisings in Turkey.
Editor’s note: Not surprising? The amount of social media activity a person takes part in is linked to their level of narcissism, new research has suggested.
Editor’s note: A survey by Microsoft reveals social tools at work help increase productivity for half of employees and more than 30 percent of companies underestimate the value of these tools and often restrict their use. Thanks to @donaldhtaylor for sharing
