Analyzing our Networks on Social Media

If you follow more than 200 people on Twitter chances are your timeline became too lare and you can’t read it all. Ultimately you will the messages from people you cherish. How to fix it? Unfollow people until you are back under 200. Anyway research tells us we have difficulty networking with than 150 people. Compartment your network in lists and focus on lists only. In both case you will have to make choices based on how you value your relations with peers, how you envision your networks. How are you doing? What is guiding you? – Value people sharing interesting and unique knowledge on an ongoing basis – Value people with whom you engage fruitful discussions? – Group people by common interests, people who are already connected among them? – favor popular accounts, people with popularity Here are some questions I have and I will extract the chat questions from them. When we meet someone online we typically progress along those lines: awareness -> respect -> listen -> study -> consider / explore further -> engage -> tickler -> regular interactions have you ever been victim of prank ? someone who gained your trust to sell you stuff How do you gauge? When do you decided to move forward and follow or list someone what could prevent you to engage with someone on Twitter? stay a listener but refrain from interacting Authenticity , reputation, credibility and authority on a body of knowledge? which numbers or publicly available track record do you consider (within out outside your network) RTs volume of tweets, list, followers, (in common or in general), conversations, achievements, blogs, blab, webinar, events, others, language used, qty and quality of links shared, writings, mentions (in your network or outside) Who do you identity goto person for a topic? How do you judge ideas,opinions or views shared as being unique, distinctive, interesting, provocating How do you identify sub groups in your network? How do you decide if someone is worth engaging with, has fruitful convo or reply When you have a question, a query, how do you locate the best person to respond in your network How do you react to repeated broadcasts, rants, blabbering, scheduled posts showing up in your feed Are you interested to learn who people you follow connect with (within our outside your network) When and how do you decide to removed someone from your online social networks How do you evaluate the quality of online conversation (in which you are part or just observing) Who they connect to or reach out in your network, people you know or outside. Are people who reach people you wish to engage with but can’t get their attention a value, or just the opposite fact that they hold convos with people outside of your domain, focus bring occasion of serendipitous encounters That’s our topic for this week PKMChat. It will be framed by questions on each axis of anaylsis but the goal is to gather our collective wisdom on this sensistive area. Beneath it’s about how and why we maintain relationships with others. PKMChat being about Personal Knowledge Management encompass Knowledge lifecycle in general. Our first chat was about learning, acquiring Knowledge. Our second is about sharing it. Week after weeks we will switch from one end of the lifecycle to another while exploring all the channels that could be used: social, formal, writing, videos. Feel free to suggest topics by tweeting to @pkmchat.
