GNOSS guide for… journalists
The mass media and journalists have doubts about the scenario in which they will develop their profession in the near future. The temporal coincidence of several crises affecting the foundations of the profession has launched many questions about its role in the internet broader context that internet is. GNOSS proposes an integrating space for defining the role of professional in the conversation that takes place on the Web.

Trends Radar
The orientation of the GNOSS communities GNOSS puts particular emphasis on resources with information that explores the technological innovation and new ways to understand and apply the learning, among other areas. The aim is to detect and identify trends in various fields in cooperation with the user input. To do this, GNOSS promotes the use of its different tools among internauts with scientific, academic, professional and researcher profiles. Most resources that build the communities locate, discover and present very valuable information for its novelty in very specific fields. Thus, a journalist can monitor and find out new content on his/her corresponding specialty: GNOSS works as a powerful radar to discover information. How? A user can subscribe to the communities that interest him/her most and receive a daily or weekly email with the contents of his interest.

New role as 'community manager'
GNOSS promotes the integration of the journalist in the context of an open network with multiple sources and content. The professional is no longer limited to broadcast, the information is not unidirectional: (the) journalist is part of a conversation in which he/she has to participate. GNOSS enables the user to lead and manage a reputation not only as a producer of content, but as administrator of communities managing the quality of information and promoting the dissemination of trends and new content.

The NextMedia community
If GNOSS speaks of trends, the mass media are an intrinsic part of GNOSS. The NextMedia community is the virtual space where students, professionals and interested users can share information and have discussions. If the future of media is on the Web, GNOSS wants to discuss on this future that is already here..

GNOSS guide for... entrepreneurs

Consultancies, finantial grants, subsidies ... Starting a business project seems a simple way according to a wide range of information sources. However, only the professional who risks knows the difficulty and needs for more specific guidance. In GNOSS he can find a partner on his way to generate business.
 
Information for the entrepreneur     
The GNOSS user that has consider starting a personal project os has just launched a business proposal to the market has available several sources to help him get information and even make decisions. The list of GNOSS communities has some specialized spaces to share and view resources:
  • Emprendedores (Entrepreneurs): a digital meeting space designed to connect the mind and the knowledge of professionals who have tested their talents to start a new business and need inspiration, judgment and support.
  • Empresa Familiar (Family Business): community that enables the exchange of information, experiences and knowledge about all aspects concerning the family business.
  • Expopyme: virtual space that provides resources on Expopyme, the most important event in Spain in terms of SMEs.
Another option is to create a new community with a specialty in which your company develops its activity or is about to start business. Example: Your business is dedicated to emerging public relations online. You can create your own virtual space with a thematic community dedicated to this specialty including resources and sources of quality which deal with and deepen on the field of public relations. You can upload your reports, opinion columns, featured posts...
What’s this space for? It is an excellent business card for the entrepreneur user: it shares quality information and, at the same time, builds a digital reputation that can open him doors in his industry. On the other hand, it attracts talent and professionals related to that field.
And another proposal: If you are looking for funding, why don’t you create a community to manage the relationships with potential investors? GNOSS provides the privacy you require.
 
Organization as a user   
GNOSS allows the user to sign up as an organization. With this option, the entrepreneur can have a website in which he presents and shows his products to all the users. In addition, GNOSS lets you create your own intranet and manage your own hard disk on the Net.
With the organization user, the entrepreneur can make contacts with other professionals who participate in GNOSS and share their concerns.

 

Do you need skilled professionals?
GNOSS can also be very useful to find people for your new business staff. In the tab ‘People and organizations’ you have the option to do a specific search in the areas and sectors related to your activity.
From ‘Search options’ you have the possibility of finding profiles based on your interests (communities) and even the geographic location of GNOSS users who have chosen to be visible. Example: you’re looking for a professional with expertise in media. If you access the drop-down search menu, you can find some communities related to journalism. For example, select ‘Next Media’ and look for profiles that may interest you by adding a geographical location and, if you want, a more specific specialization such as ‘corporate communications’.

GNOSS guide for… teachers
Education and new ways of learning are major concepts in the GNOSS communities. Teachers in schools, high schools and vocational schools can find out and share the latest trends and ideas in the education field. Besides, the digital identity project and the various applications in the GNOSS communities can be very useful for the educational activity.


A discussion place to find new ways of learning
GNOSS is a social network where users share information in thematic communities. Teachers can enjoy several communities that have been promoted by GNOSS with very interesting content according to their specialty. They offer information regarding the latest trends and news in education:

In these communities, apart from sharing resources, teachers can participate in the discussion developed around the uploaded information and files. You can even evaluate them, according to the certification policy that the ‘community manager’ has determined.
The teacher has the option of requesting as many communities as he/she wants and giving them different applications. It will always have an added value, since it allows the privacy level that you demand: from maximum public exposure to the total confidence. Possible uses?

  • Virtual classroom: a site to upload the contents of a subject and generate discussion with students.
  • Management of private or group projects (student work, contests ...)
  • Community on a specific topic you want to lead. Example: e-learning in adult education.

Web and virtual hard disk
The teaching staff can enjoy the possibilites of the GNOSS ‘corporate mode’. By signing up as an organization, a school or a high school has the option to edit its history and show, for example, a description of what services it provides or what activities can be developed at their facilities. That is, it can work as a web page or portfolio of the center.
But the options that GNOSS offers don’t stop there: the user in corporate mode has the capacity to create a virtual hard disk that can store all kinds of documents in private, or show them to the public if desired. For instance, it’s interesting to show internet users a pdf file with all the out-of-school activities in the center. However, the confidential documents, as the minutes of a meeting, may have its place in the space for private resources.
It will be the school, as corporate user, who will decide what contacts can acess and participate in its resources as editors or simply readers. So, GNOSS could work as an intranet for the teaching staff.

 The thematic specialization of the GNOSS communities enables to find people grouped by common interests. It’s possible to make very specific searches on content and users who excel in highly specialized sectors. How can you find them?

 
Specialized Communities
GNOSS is a network of networks where users share their knowledge in various communities grouped by topics or interests. On a first visit, a recruiter can navigate through GNOSS and see what the thematic areas or communities he/she is interested in. You can also make a detailed search on specialties or specific fields to find professional profiles. GNOSS guarantees they can do it discreetly, since the headhunter has the option of remaining ‘invisible’ to maintain discretion in their operations.
 
Subscription to profiles and categories
GNOSS allows you to follow both users of your interest for a possible job and topics on which you are trying to find an expert or a particular profile. In the first case, the headhunter can subscribe to the profile of the person who has caught his/her attention. So, he/she will receive by email all the information that the user shares in his personal profile. On the other hand, if you still haven’t found a profile of your interest, GNOSS suggest you to subscribe to categories related to the field or sector in which there is a necessity. For example, if you intend to take on an analyst with experience in web 3.0, it makes sense to subscribe to the category ‘Semantic programming languages’ (‘Lenguajes de programación semántica’) in the NextWeb community. The GNOSS user that adds resources in this site is likely an interesting profile for possible recruitment.
 
Augmented profiles
When you find an interesting user or someone that fits into the objective, GNOSS provides access to a profile in which not only the curriculum vitae will be shown. If the user has enabled it, the headhunter can navigate through the user resources and view his work, thesis, reports, participation in events and conferences ... More than enough material to make a good choice.
 
Private communication
Finally, if the recruiter finds a person of his/her interest, GNOSS offers the possibility of sending a private communication through its message service.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis
 
The period to assess the SWOT analysis has finished. The manager and editors can work to unify and analyze the opinions of the community members.
To do this, they have to follow a few steps:
 
Selection criteria
The editors set out a text with the statistical criteria that lead them to determine the conclusions and the selection of ‘winning’ and linked factors.
 
Selection and linking of factors
Each factor has different rates depending on how many people and what they voted on the value scale (from ‘In disagreement’ to ‘Total agree’. The tab ‘+’ offers a detailed display with the data. Depending on the 'Criteria' established by the manager and editors, the factors can be selected (these factors are the 'winners') and linked (maybe two or more winning factors are very similar and can be linked as a single factor). To select or link, you have to click in the ‘check’ of the factors you determine. Your selection will be automatically saved.
The factors voted during the performance of the SWOT analysis have a graphic expression as quartiles. Its image allows a quick statistical analysis to get conclusions.
 
Conclusions
Text with the presentation of the conclusions reached after analyzing the SWOT factors.
When the editor or editors have finished their analysis and unification, users will receive an email inviting them to visit the completed SWOT analysis..
 
Do you want to create a SWOT analysis?
To propose a SWOT analysis, you have to enter your community and go to the tab 'Collective thinking'. There you will find the button 'Create swot'. If that tab is not available in your community toolbar, the manager may request it to GNOSS
If you want to see all SWOT analyses you’re taking in, either as a manager, editor or participant, you have a shortcut to ‘My SWOT’ in your dropdown menu (the personal or the corporate one) that will take you to a webpage with your swot list and their state.
You can get more information about the SWOT tool in the GNOSS guide for… performing a SWOT analysis.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis
 
This phase is the assessment or answer to the SWOT. Participants vote the factors proposed as weaknesses/threats/ strengths/opportunities in the following scale: 
In disagreement/ Not agree at all / Little agree / Agree/ Total agree
Also, they can add new factors to the proposal, so that the other participants and editors can assess more ideas.
In turn, if the SWOT manager has determined that the SWOT assessments are private, only the voting scale and how many people voted will be shown. However, if you have enabled the votes to be public, participants and publishers will see the average.
The GNOSS SWOT analyses allow the conversation on the issues that participants consider appropriate: they can comment every factor.
The votes are automatically saved and the user can change his vote to a factor while the voting period is open. The participant will receive an alert the day before the closing date and the last day of the SWOT assessment period.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis

 

 
 We recommend that you prepare the SWOT analysis factors after having completed the 'General options'. You must complete two fields:
 
Introduction
In this brief text you show what is to be read on the weaknesses/threats/strengths/opportunities of your SWOT analysis. By default, you have a standard text that you can change if you want.
 
Add new  weaknesses, threatens, strengths and opportunities:
It is the enumeration of concepts in each section. You can include as many as you want. A control activated in the upper left side of each of them allows you to put them in the order you prefer.
This process is similar for the four SWOT tabs. They have different colors (just under 'Factors'). To facilitate your work, the tab on which you are including the factors is highlighted.
When you're done with the ‘General options’ and the 'Factors', click on 'Publish'. Note that, at that time, you cannot go back and the process of assessing your SWOT starts... until the selected deadline.

  1. General options to create a swot
  2. How to include the SWOT analysis factors
  3. Editors and participants assess and vote
  4. Phase to unify the SWOT analysis
 
The GNOSS swot is a collective thinking tool that the participants of a community use to analyze and expresses their opinions about an actor, a product or an entity in a social context. If you have decided to create a swot in GNOSS, we offer you some advice to take this step without difficulties:
 
In the ‘Title’ you can point out the key concept your SWOT analysis is about. You must do it in a clear and direct way, with few words. A practical way to know if your proposal works is this: if a contact asks “What does your SWOT analyze?”, the name you have chosen should be sufficient to understand the content.
 
The ‘Description’ sums up the goal of the SWOT analysis. We suggest that you use two or three suggestive concepts that describe the content of your proposal. From there, show who you are addressing to and what you expect of them. Another option is to launch the juiciest and most controversial issues of your SWOT in your description. You can extend as much as you want, but anyway we recommend that first paragraph reflects the essence of your SWOT analysis.
 
The next step to create a SWOT is selecting the ‘Tags’ to describe their content. They are the common concepts or keywords that identify the contents of your SWOT analysis. Think about this: a good tagging makes it easier and faster to find content when someone searches it. We recommend selecting at least ten concepts adequate to describe your SWOT analysis. After tagging, select the categories of the community in which the SWOT analysis you’re proposing fits.
 
Once you have described, tagged and categorized your SWOT analysis, star the selection of people you want to think and analyze with you. You have to choose the participants and the editors of th SWOT analysis. For that, we offer a drop-down menu with the members of your community. Make your selection. The difference between an editor and a participant is that the first on, apart from assessing and voting, can also participate in the process of unifying factors.
The SWOT manager selects if the analysis is visible to the SWOT participants, the community members, the GNOSS users or all internauts.
 
On the other hand, GNOSS allows the manager to choose the privacy of the SWOT analysis participants. By default, the tool enables an option that does not show the identity of the participants. If the editor deems it appropriate, their identity will be made public. GNOSS sends an automatic alert (email) so that the SWOT participant knows that his identity will be public during the vote. Then he has the possibility to leave the SWOT or continue in it, as he considers appropriate. The manager may also determine if the SWOT votes are public or private.
Finally, the manager has to define until what date you can participate in the SWOT analysis. The limit is the end of the chosen day (23:59 h). GNOSS sends automatic alerts a day before the end of the process and the same day it ends.
After closing the 'General options', the manager must write the 'Factors'.
