ConvergeSouth: Day Two Social Networking

Social Networking Panel ConvergeSouth 2007

The panel is  Elisa Camahort, Soni Pitts, and Ruby Sinreich.

 Sinreich gives the five elements of a strong Social Network:

1. Strong social ties

2. Having a dense communication grid, a lot of ways to get in touch with other, RSS feeds, Twittering, or Flickr pages, at conferences.

3. Having a common story. Narrative you all experienced together. Common theme, the language is the same.

4. Shared resources, a place like Blogher, or sharing money, or grants in a certain movement.

5. Meta or sense of purpose. They are aware it exists, have a sense of membership. A sense of belonging and knowing what it is for. The right network and right sense of belonging.

Ed Cone talks about social networking in business at Wachovia’s 110,000 employees.

    Cool! I actually managed to look all insightful and stuff, and not so dorky, even thought I was still a bit under the Burro. Sweet.
