What is social media?
One example: ask a question about on a topic in a LinkedIn group.
the discussion is not about the tools or the reasons not to participate (they are endless)http://www.flickr.com/photos/kinregerp/4457001909/Thank you fran.pregernik
Make you own definition.
Some characteristics of communicationhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/enerva/
Mind the unwritten rules (clean your cup). What if all rules had to written down? Is that even possible?
Recognize the position of others in communication systems. Shift gear when necessary:e.g. call someone if you think a remark on LinkedIn is rather odd (or send a privat message)http://www.flickr.com/photos/enerva/
We are all caught in a net of different social systems, all with different written and unwritten rulesWe behave different in those social systems. Just try to be the same at work as you are at home (or vice versa).
The ellipes are not the same sizeBut in the end, who we are is in the middle. If your “colleagues” elips is very small (meaning, there is not much of “you” while you are at work), I think you should like for a careerswitch.Just respect how other people formulate their ellipses.
Picture by me.
We communicate in communities and we fullfill different roles
The number per group varies, also in culturesaccros the world
It takes much more energy to create then to just be a spectator
I may have suggested that the participation puzzle has equal size pieceshttp://www.flickr.com/photos/zooboing/
This would be more accurate. The pieces vary in size, but they are all needed to form a complete system (I do need a better picture for this).http://www.flickr.com/photos/jamescridland/
How to discover your pieces of the puzzle? Describe yourself in four sentences
Consider whether they are offline or online, privat or public
Now plot them in these quadrants
And match them related to how you use the social media platformsMind the fuzzy lines. What is privat and what is public cannot be so
Me in the top right quadant (public, online). Note: no Facebook, no yammer (…).

I create a discussion
Responding to a discussion (a bit less work)
Just liking an update. Not very much effort, just a token of my apprecation.
