Course Description: Social media allows a passive reader (or an average Joe) to become an active producer (or a shining online star), creating a phenomenal landscape change in terms of Web-based activities. With various social media (Facebook, Twitter, Digg,, MySpace, StumbleUpon, etc.), people can share content, opinions, insights, experiences, perspectives, and media themselves, as well as producing many new media via techniques such as mashing up. Social networks emerge with the pervasive use of social media. We will briefly introduce the background of social computing including concepts and principles such as small world, random networks, scale-free networks, laws and distributions (normal distribution, Zipf’s law, power law), search in networks, propagation of influence and trust, diffusion (epidemics), robustness in networks, collective wisdom, collaborative filtering, social decision making, and the relationships between Long Tails and Short Heads.

Cultural heritage and the semantic web « Libraries, the universe and everything Cultural heritage and the semantic web On 13th January I attended a study day at the British Museum “Cultural heritage and the semantic web “. This was a fascinating and challenging day, with some excellent speakers and lots of opportunity for open discussions. I must admit I spent most of the day trying not to do a goldfish impression – there was so much to think about, and although I’ve heard expressions like ‘semantic web’ and ‘linked data’ I must admit I had a pretty vague idea of what it all actually meant. Perhaps my favourite moment of the day was when one of the afternoon speakers, Atanas Kiryakov, summarised the whole linked data thing as being akin to teenage sex: everyone talks about it, not that many people are actually doing it, and most of those who are were disappointed with the experience and hope it will be better next time!

Oké, je hebt dus een Facebook-pagina opgezet, een bureau ingehuurd om een aantal apps voor je te ontwikkelen en je bent net een Facebook Advertising campagne gestart om consumenten op het bestaan van je pagina te attenderen. Nu kun je lekker achterover gaan hangen en de fans binnen zien stromen. Nee dus! Nu begint het echte werk pas. Jouw nieuwe fans willen natuurlijk ook graag iets terugzien voor het feit dat ze op ‘Vind ik Leuk’ hebben geklikt bovenaan jouw pagina. En hier gaat het bij de meeste merken vaak fout, want community management is mensenwerk. Community management is mensenwerk Community management is mensenwerk
How Much Money Do Community Managers Make? [INFOGRAPHIC] How Much Money Do Community Managers Make? [INFOGRAPHIC] by Jason Keath on Jan 10, 2011 Community managers are the quiet gatekeepers of social media marketing. As the first line of contact for many companies investing in the social media space, community managers have some of the best insight into where a brand stands with it’s customers. As more companies invest in Facebook pages and Twitter account and blogs, they need community managers to run these accounts. Sometimes even before they fully develop long term strategies.

What It Means to Be An Online Community Builder For the past 15 years, cocktail parties were tough. When people would ask what I do for work, my response "I build online communities for business" would serve as a natural repellant to further conversation. Confused or suspicious about this mysterious response, the martini-holding listener would likely divert the conversation elsewhere in short order, as they had absolutely no idea what an online community-builder is or does. I am happy to report that my social life is getting better these days, as online communities are all the rage.
