Social Fresh (100105) "Where Marketers Learn What Social Media Can Really Do"
Anti-Social Media: A Rising Rebellion Against Web 2.0? (100105) "Want to wipe your online slate completely clean for 2010 and eliminate most traces of your social-media indiscretions? Now, there's an app for that. As highlighted by TechCrunch, the Web 2.0 Suicide Machine will do the dirty work for you: Just give it your passwords and watch it totally purge your social-media accounts at Facebook, LinkedIn and other such sites."
When Social Media Gets Athletes in Trouble (100105) "Professional athletes, like many celebrities, are using social media to connect with fans and share their personal lives in ways they never could before. But because of some strict rules and professional faux pas, many athletes are finding themselves in hot water after their poorly timed or controversial status updates. Here are a few examples."

Why Blogs make More Sense (100104)
Making Sense of New Technologies and Media (100104) "In this week issue of Media Literacy Digest, open education and connectivism advocate George Siemens, explores and reports about emerging media, communication technologies and education-related trends. His goal is one of helping you make good sense of the many changes taking place around you and their possible impact on how we work, learn and communicate together."
Innovation and the Value Network (100102) "There are many different models of business models available for you to use. I don’t care which one you use, but you have to use one of them. They all include an element like the value network as one of the key things that you have to understand and manage when you try to get your innovative ideas to spread. The better your understanding of this network, the more effective you’ll be at innovating."
Your presence after the presents (100102) "I started to think about personal networks. What will your personal network activity be like this holiday season? What will your presence be, after the presents are opened? Here or There?"
Are Social Networks Messing With Your Head? (100102)
2010: The year we fake contact (100102) "Social networking tools create contacts. That's what they were designed to do. It's in their job descriptions and they do exactly what it says on their can. Problem is, just how many people can I connect with who are actually people I know? Do I need to have any kind of connection with my Facebook 'friends' beyond the fact that we are linked on the site? When does it become a problem that you are sharing your photographs and your innermost thoughts with friends of friends of friends (I mean total strangers). Just where do you draw the line? "
When NOT to use social media (100102) "These days, everyone is talking about social media and discussing what services and tools to use, how to use them, why you should use them, etc. In fact, if you listened to all the advice out there, you would probably think that no matter who you are, whether an individual wanting to build a personal brand, or a large multinational corporation intent on communicating with customers, you should be using social media. But is social media for everyone? Are there times when you shouldn't be using it at all?"
Do you live social? (100101) "Do you live social? Many organizations simply skip this question because they assume that they themselves don't have to be social (open and collaborative) to reap the rewards (cost savings, marketing ROI, effective reputation management, and search engine juice) they think they might get from social media."
In 2009 Social Media Overtook Web 2.0 (100101) "Web 2.0. A few years ago, it was the hottest buzzword around. It refers to the second generation of web apps following the Internet bubble that devastated not only Silicon Valley, but our economy in general. Social Media. While its definition is not yet etched in stone, most believe it describes a new type of media and communication that creates a world conversation and dialogue. Instead of being fed news (a one-to-many dissemination approach), everyone is welcomed to be a content creator and to generate a debate around that content. While its focus is the web, it goes beyond it as well."

The Medium Is No Longer the Message, ... You Are Seth Goldstein Social Media (091230)
Social Media Classroom "The Social Media Classroom, a browser-based, free and open source environment for teaching and learning, grew directly out of the first minutes I stepped into a physical classroom and began to realize that I needed to readjust my assumptions about students, classrooms, and educational media." (See also Interactive Media Resources) (091230)
Noughties But Nice "The first decade of the 21st Century was highly significant for personal learning. Such a vast array of new personal devices and web applications was introduced that have become so deeply ingrained in our everyday lives, many of us would probably feel at a loss if we were suddenly transported back to 1999. If we time jumped from then to 2009, the way we now communicate, learn, search for information, share content and consume entertainment would be unrecognisable. The concept of personal learning environments was also introduced, as a counterpoint to the notion of the VLE. Here are just a few of the personal technological innovations (good or bad) that emerged in the noughties" (091230)
Yoono "Yoono, the client that mashes together multiple social networking feeds into a single app, has released version 1.5 of their free desktop client. This is an important update for two reasons: the addition of a major social network, and the ability to manage multiple accounts on the same network." (091230)
