Social Networking in Plain English
The Common Craft website is a great resource for explaining "stuff" in plain english and I like their video on Social Networking below. It touches on something important that in many networks you cannot see the relationships beyond these networks. What you get is "structural holes" (you can tell I’ve been spending too much time with the academics), points in the network where either you cannot see the links beyond this or that these networks are not actually connected.What if you could spot these "gaps" and connect them but only do that if it made some sense to do it either in a business sense or some other sense. We would be building ever more valuable relationships??
