Social and connective lock-in

George Siemens, elearnspace, Feb 25, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Today's online session in the Connectivism and Connective Knowledge course was one of those where new ideas emerge from the interplay of ideas. In this case, the new ideas were the twin concepts of 'social lock-in' 'connective lock-in':
- Social lock-in – where we are reluctant to move to new social networks because all of our friends/colleagues are part of our current social network service.
- Connective lock-in – where we have lost control of our ability to define and shape connections
Tracy Parish also has a summary with links of today's session, including Jenny Mackness's coverage of attacks on Connectivism.
