Social knowledge networks, in pictures

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Here's how we think the truism works in our industry:

This particular graph was inspired by a recent Indexed post on Web 2.0. I would like to thank and acknowledge Indexed author Jessica Hagy for her innovative and insightful use of simple graphics to describe everyday life.

I also believe this graph extends the recent post by our own John Callan, clarifying the difference between a social network and a social knowledge network.

As John put it, "In a social knowledge network, connections and discussions are made around the content, such as one or more documents, drawings, images, etc. In this way, the content becomes the enabler, the catalyst, to connect people and help them get their job done more efficiently." Go John!
