wiki on facebook for education


Wilfred Rubens who keeps on delivering great insights on eLearning on his blog (Dutch) has directed me to the superb wiki of George Siemens on Facebook and its benefits as a social network service. This wiki was one of the results of a workshop he did on facebook at the University of Manitoba.

The wiki gives a nice overview of when which social network was started. After that he zooms into Facebook with a good analyses on pro's and cons if you want to use it in a corporate or other environment for educational reasons.

He also added a link to Danah Boyd who writes and researches social media. Read her blog for some really great insights into social networks and media. She writes with a humouristic twist as well. Great!
