Blog/20110525 Social Management System
I am supervising a masters student at the moment, working on the use of social media in facilitating learning. Some of our discussion is on the pros and cons of social media vs. the pros and cons of Learning Management Systems. That's not really comparing like for like though: 'social media' is somewhat broader in scope than LMS, which is essentially a class of software. The term 'Social Media Management System' exists, though perhaps not widely used. And are people on Facebook really managing their social media (or would consider themselves to be managing their social media)? Really many use Facebook (and the like) to manage their social interactions - when to go where, and so forth. So perhaps Facebook etc are really 'Social Management Systems', which could then be contrasted with LMSs?
