Definitions: Communication and Collaboration
Communication: A message is sent from person A to person B, and receipt is acknowledged by person B. Interaction: A message is sent from person A to person B, and receipt is acknowledged by person B, and person B sends a message back to person A in reply. Collaboration: Multiple interactions between two or more people for some common task or goal.

Social Network vs. Online Community
Social Network
• A social network is a social structure made of nodes (which are generally individuals or organizations) that are tied by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as values, visions, ideas, financial exchange, friendship or trade.

Online Community
• A virtual community, ecommunity or online community is a group of people that primarily interact via the computer for social, professional, educational or other purposes.

Social Network vs. Online Community
Social Network • Large and distributed with many nodes (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.) • Social ties = weak • If you are NOT there, you probably ARE NOT missed Online Community • Smaller, generally focused on a specific topic or goal (Community of practice, learning community, project community) • Social ties = strong • If you are NOT there, you ARE missed

Generational Differences
• • • • Seniors – “loose lips sink ships” Boomers – e-mail and phone (1 on 1) Gen X- IM and chat (faster) Gen Y – Work in groups, teams communities, collaboration is critical – don’t like e-mail, too slow – Chat/IM/SMS, – the Twitter Generation

Old Collaborative Infrastructures
• Microsoft Server architecture is too complicated (see slide) • More collaborations tools are SaaSbased (Cloud computing)
– Lower initial cost – Easy to test if it works for your group – Opex rather than a CapEx
