Benefits The benefits of using these tools can be enormous. Facebook has and continues to be a popular social media tool used to share information across a group with similar interests. LinkedIn allows for smaller groups to develop a PLN while YouTube’s ability to post and retrieve videos that can be used for training showing step-by-step procedures. A Wiki is easy to use, editable online space for collaborative work, sharing knowledge, and building databases of libraries of information (Bozarth, 2010). Wikis provide opportunities for participants with common interests or a project goal to move beyond traditional collaboration to a new age of virtual community participation (McCartney, 2008). Although these tools are helpful, they do not come without limitations. Limitations Limitations include but are not limited to Facebook’s privacy issues. If you are not familiar with Facebook the set-up can be confusing and you may be releasing personal information for all users to see and may take a lot of employee time as they may be using it personally. LinkedIn limits the number of people you can connect to which reduces a PLN. YouTube is a video posting only site and some may not be able to view the material or it may not be of any use. Wikis allow anyone with access to change the content. When using any social media tool for learning the bottom line is trust. Organizations have to trust their employees have trusted sources when seeking and developing a PLN. Some examples of these tools used are with Wal-Mart, University of Phoenix, Google, and Red Ant.
