Participation Collaboration IS 2.0

Participation Collaboration IS the new 2.0


 
I hear a lot about the technical aspects of upgrading an individual or an organization to a 2.0 level/state, etc. There are lots of features on social media tools, and how to use them for business purposes to strengthen a brand, etc. We are beginning to see more and more ads in main social networks and this trend does not show any signs of losing steam. What I fear is that a couple years ago we had intranets of a private nature, now social media is generally open to the public, and if the marketing aspect becomes too strong, perhaps individuals and organizations will go back to private networks and isolate their information stream from the general public, in order to cut themselves from the “spamming”, i.e. automation of “user-generated” content. That will be a blow to the internet in its inherent nature: transparent and free. But some would say the the Web is becoming more and more like TV: more ads & control, less freedom.

What I would like to see is the focus remaining on what seems like the most important aspects of social media: participation & collaboration. The interactive nature of social networks is best when genuine; let’s not spoil that through automated content-generation processes and programmed functions. Or can it be done while keeping control over content quality? Interesting topic…

    I almost never comment, but after reading through a few of the remarks on eRelations » Blog Archive » Participation & Collaboration IS 2.0. I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be just me or does it look like like some of these responses come across as if they are written by brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you post a list of the complete urls of your social networking pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    • admin  June 25, 2012

      Hello there,
      Well first off you are completely right about some insipid comments on the blog… Unfortunately for the most part it is spam, i.e. automatically generated comments; those pop up daily so we got to detect them and make spam rules etc. Sometimes it is obvious but some spam comments are fairly good written so not always easy to detect them! So more zombie folks then brain dead folks I guess (<;
      As for other websites, blogs, etc. please look at the social media icons at the bottom of each page (“Social Networks, “Follow eRelations”), there are a couple blogs and sites related to eRelations.
      Thank you for your interesting feedback and have a great day!
