Your customers can find and click-to-connect with whomever they want as their next step in the buying process. Anonymously if they prefer.Social customers want control. Give it to them.
Social business is about authenticity, immediacy and relevance. People don’t want to connect with fictitious “live person Sarah”. Someone they can size-up before they decide to connect one-on-one. They want access to the person who’s really other side of the live chat button.
So give customers access. Let them size you up, with Workface.

#socl new #startup #curation #pln edtool by #Microsoft Research FUSE Labs alternative 4 #pinterest just got better #edtech20 #pln



Today I plan to write about top 10 social media tools to brand your name, but I saw today that Socl just got better and here are the new features on http://www.so.cl/#/profile/Duma-Cornel-Lucian and I invite you to add a comment if you think is better curation tool than http://pinterest.com/LucianeCurator/ for education ..
What is Socl?
Socl — pronounced social — allows you to express and share your ideas through rich post collages comprised of images, links, captions and videos.Socl is a research project from Microsoft Research FUSE Labs and began as an experiment in social search targeted at students for the purpose of learning. Following the lead of the Socl community, Socl has since evolved to be a service where people connect over shared interests expressed through beautiful posts that take only seconds to create.
Last features launched today by So.cl
Here are a few changes you’ll notice right away…
Posts. Viewing the rapid feed on Socl is faster and, well, just better. The home screen is all about the beautiful posts you create (often in just seconds, using the new post creator!). You can choose to see the posts two-columned or three, so it’s less likely you’ll miss out on anything. And now you can see the posts even if you are not signed in or are new to Socl.
Interests. The crowd-sourced interest gallery is more discoverable, helping you socialize with like-minded people over topics you care about.
People/Me. People finding and following can be done via posts, the new people gallery, or from a person’s page. Everyone on Socl has an updated page where profile information, posts, interests, people and parties can be viewed together in one place. Check out your “me page” today, or if you’re new to Socl, sign in and we’ll create a page for you.
Parties. Create a playlist and watch videos with others in Socl, and chat together as you watch.



In Socl, how do I create a rich post?
Socl makes it easy to create a beautiful post you’re proud to share. Simply use the post creator to find interesting images, links and videos on the web and let the post creator do the rest – your selections will be automatically assembled into a compelling collage in just seconds.
What is a riff in Socl?
A riff in Socl is a visual response to a post, usually extending the original post in some manner thereby providing a way to continue a conversation visually. All the posts in a riff are viewable together using view riffs – the post that inspires the riff is clearly marked and attribution is also given to the riff post as well.
What are Interests in Socl?
Socl Interests are public groups organized around post content.

Socl makes it easy to connect with people from all over the world who share your interests – whatever they may be. Socl Interests are dynamic and crowd-sourced so the possibilities are virtually limitless. Are you a Social Media Curation addicted? If so, visit the CURATION Interest to see posts on food and connect with people who share your passion. Is football a thing? Create your own post about football, tag it, and discuss it with other football fans on Socl. From food to football; tech to tectonics – you’ll likely find the topic on Socl and enjoy connecting with like-minded people.
Who are the People on Socl? How do I find my friends?

Socl is an open social network where people connect around posts and choose to follow people, interests, or both. While you may discover some of your Facebook friends on Socl, you will more likely discover new people or topics you’d like to follow. Of course, you can invite your friends to join you on Socl by sharing posts to Facebook, Twitter or email or simply by sending them an invitation. If you choose to sign in using Facebook, your Facebook friends on Socl will also be easily visible from your People View on your Me Page.
What is the Me Page?

Every Socl user has a Me Page which is created once you’ve signed in on Socl using your Facebook or Microsoft account.

From your Me Page, you can see a feed of all the posts you’ve created or interacted with or, if you prefer, you can see your feed organized by conversation. From Me, you can:
See all the posts you have created
Manage the Interests you follow
Manage the People you follow
See the video parties you have created
Manage settings for Socl such as profile information (picture and bio), preferences for language and notifications and more.
Why doesn't my photo appear when signing in with my Microsoft Account?

For privacy reasons, your Microsoft Account photo is not available for Socl to use. In order to have a profile photo, update your Socl settings to link to profile picture available on the internet (such as a Skydrive public folder).
What is a Video Party?

A Video Party is a shared video experience on Socl. Socl lets you search and quickly assemble a list of videos to view and chat about together, in real time if you like. You can create your own party, or join an existing party created by another person.
How does Socl work?

The Socl post creation experience is powered by Bing; we use the public Bing APIs to display search results. When people want to express themselves on Socl, they look for great content on the web and share the results in the form of a post collage. These results can be web pages, images, or videos found through Bing or found while simply browsing the web and shared with the Socl community (the Socl bookmarklet makes this easy to do). Posts can be tagged to Socl Interests to aid discovery and discussion.
What is the Socl bookmarklet and how do I use it?

The Socl bookmarklet provides an easy way to share a link on the web to Socl. Click here to add the Socl bookmarklet to your browser.
Is Socl data public?

Public data enables new types of research and experimentation, and is a primary goal for Socl. Your post and any other data you post to Socl may be viewed by all other Socl users. In addition, data publicly posted on Socl can be used by other entities and individuals.

For more information please read our Privacy Statement.
Can I delete my data in Socl?

Yes. You have options ranging from deleting a single item, comment, or post, to deleting all your history, or your entire account. Deleted data may however have been included in data sets shared with third parties; deletion of your data from Socl will not delete entries from such data sets. For more information please read our Privacy Statement.
Can anyone join Socl? Does it cost anything?

Anyone can join Socl; Socl is free.
Does my Socl data appear on Facebook?

No, not unless you choose to share to Facebook.

Socl uses two services for authentication, or sign in: the Microsoft account or Facebook.

If you choose to use Facebook authentication – which means you use your Facebook account to sign in – your name and profile picture from Facebook will appear in Socl by default.

By default we do not post any content from Socl into your Facebook stream. If you choose, you can post content to Facebook using the share to Facebook feature in Socl.
Does Socl compete with social networking and search sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Bing, or Google?

No, Socl is an experimental research project with a minimal set of features that combine social networking and search for the purpose of enabling people to express and share ideas through rich visual collages, organized by interests.
What are the other social experiments that you are engaged in?

Other ongoing experiments include:
Kodu: teaches kids programming and creativity on the XBox and PC.
Montage: creates a visual album of the web on the topics you care about.
Docs: lets you discover, create and share documents with your friends, coworkers, and classmates on Facebook.
or see more projects from FUSE Labs.

These projects are experiments from Microsoft Research, and like other research projects, you should not expect that these projects will be supported by a Microsoft product team.

Short Session Description (one line): We will present here our research in 2 european projects : ICT4eTwinners project, SMILE Project and top 10 social media tools to build a PLN

Full Session Description (one paragraph minimum):

In XXI Century Education and around the social web new Social Media King is Curation who is about adding value for humans because only they can do what no computer can possibly achieve . The Internet Curator’s role is to seek on the web information related to a specic domain,fillter them, select them, organise, share, present them in a unique mode. For this reason we launch ICT4eTwinners project : Innovation, Curation, Teach for eTwinners where we collaborate and integrate new tools and apps useful for teachers and students in XXI Century Education . This is a eTwinning project launched after I was leader in community of practices 2 organized in SMILE Project . In our COP2 - Using social media in schools - whole school approach we have a team from 8 members who make a case study related to our theme
European Schoolnet (EUN) has been awarded an inaugural Digital Citizenship Research Grant by Facebook and for this reason they launched Social Media in Learning Education Project . http://leedu.eun.org/web/smile/home
This SMILE year-long project consists of three phases:
- An online learning laboratory for 100 teachers from the 30 member states of EUN's partnerships to investigate and embrace the educational opportunities social media offers.
- Research with the 100 learning laboratory participants to highlight trends and best practices for how social media is being used and can be used in classrooms.
- Broad dissemination of results of the research through EUN’s interactive portals for teachers as well as through European and international meetings and conferences.
Nowadays when informatics and science developed spectacular and the use of new online technologies aren’t regarded like a avangardist movement new tools and apps Web 2.0 and social media can bring a new dimension and can reform education around the world because electronic communication helps teachers and students to learn from each other. These technologies can stimulate discussion, open gateway to knowledge, promoting creativity and innovation for effective lifelong learning . Teacher and also students should have an entitlement to safe internet access at all times. Pulling Piaget and Papert , the use of participatory media tools in education is typically geared towards, creating a more student centered, adaptive environnement where learners can contribute to the course material, formulate and express their own insights and opinion, construct their own understanding of material by connecting concepts, to personal experience or current events, and learn from one another in collaborative environments .Web 2.0 , social media and other digital and online technologies are powerful and interesting tools, which open up new opportunities for everyone and for this reason teachers must learn how to use it in a creative mode and integrate in their classroom with students .

My favorite ( top 10 ) romanian #edtech #startup tools at #howtoweb 2012

Because this year I became a Social Media Curator http://bit.ly/LucianCurator who really want to implement Curation Restart Education Project http://bit.ly/credproject and still I will launch a platform for it I decided to describe here in my blog top 10 edtech startups and in the same time to follow online many worldwide global events and after to post and describe here in my blog my top 10 startups presented at the event . In one of my previous posts I describe my top 10 startups al Leweb 2012 http://bitly.com/lewebstartups . Now I want to congratulate Bogdan Iordache who make from How to Web one of the biggest Social Media event in Romania . Please leave a comment and write what you think about next edtools and about How to Web .



How to Web is top event for European tech innovators organized this year at Bucharest Teach Fast http://techfeast.co/ along with Startup Weekend Romania http://romania.startupweekend.org/ . Follow practical case-studies, discover how tech innovation changes the world, meet your peer tech entrepreneurs and professionals from all around Central and Eastern Europe. You can view a full list of How to Web 2012 speakers here http://2012.howtoweb.co/speakers/ . This year they also organized a startup competition and they selected 30 finalist teams http://blog.howtoweb.co/2012/10/how-to-web-startup-spotlight-2012-finalists/ . I am verry happy to see many gr8 romanian edtech startups in the list according to How to Web and for this reason next I will describe my top 10 romanian startups .



1.snipdocs is startup curation tool to share knowledge using a web application applying semantic search and visual bookmarks to help users build documents for research, work, or casual topics. Paid content is being offered directly within the platform to provide high quality results . Take any excerpt from any digital source and store it in virtual documents. Structure and edit your collected bits and pieces to your personal liking. Invite others to help you collect and curate the contents of your snipdocs documents.





2.JotPot’s mission is to take the traditional notebook and backpack to a whole new level by putting them online. It relies on the fact that more and more students leave their pencil and paper at home, in favor of using their laptops or iPads during classes. I believe that many more might switch if they actually had the right tool to take notes effectively on their laptops.
What you can do with JotPot ?
Take notes in an online notebook.
View your course slides.
Take notes side-by-side with the slides.
Interact with your colleagues.
Organize your university life.
And the best part? It’s FREE for any student to use!
You can read more and donate for the startup here http://www.indiegogo.com/jotpot

3. docTrackr was created by people who value privacy to prevent large enterprise/cloud providers from owning your data. docTrackr care about sharing ideas the right way. Putting all your documents into the cloud can mean losing ownership. docTrackr was built to make sure you control your data, you make choices about who can use it and that you have complete ownership of your files.
At docTrackr, you have the control to your documents and make it easy to do that. You shouldn't have to fight with a complicated interface either, to know your documents are safe. Consider docTrackr a friend who safeguards your files, assuring them safety, security and when you want access, gives you an easy way to access any of your files quickly and privately.
4. Treeach is an online platform that connects innovative independent language teachers all around the world with people all ages who are eager to learn. At Treeach, we believe that creative and independent education can change things, helping us as society to think broader, to be different and to be able to step out of our comfort zone. Therefore, Treeach was created as an alternative website where authentic teachers can offer their services to hold private or group classes in their own communities or to teach online anyone in the world.


5. KeenSkim - Summarize web pages, articles & news
Just like a highlighter-pen summary, but completely automatic!The problem
Information exhaustion - too much information, too little time.
But also too important to disregard!
Whether you're and innovator, a decision-maker or a student, being up-to-date equals succes.
The KeenSkim fix
Skim the summary - KeenSkim creates for you a brief summary of the relevant bits in the storyGives you colored highlights inside the original page, for fast & easy reading the summary.
How it works
Gremlin technology - we finally managed to put those little buggers to good use!Best results on stories. Not so well on lists, tops, tutorials and interviews. But we're getting there!
