Social Networking Is Highly Popular Among Elearning! Readers

Concurrent with staging its annual Elearning! Summit event survey, the magazine conducted another poll of its readers. One of the interesting facts to emerge was that social networking is becoming increasingly important.

Fully 43 percent of the poll’s respondents said that they are members of three to five social networks or online communities while an additional 8 percent are members of more than five. On the other end of the spectrum, just 10 percent said that they were not involved in any social networks or online communities.

Also, with more collaborative computer technologies become available almost by the day, face-to-face interaction with co-workers is becoming increasingly unlikely, according to results of the survey. Almost three in four (74 percent) of the respondents “work in a geographically distributed team.”

Finally, although 27 percent of respondents said that their company is in a “traditional collaboration” stage, 23 percent are into specialized applications and 21 percent are in a proliferation stage.
