“Social learning,” as it is often considered to be, is nothing entirely new. Though many new modalities of social learning have emerged in recent years, in many ways it has been around for a long time. But if social learning has long been present, why has the focus on it increased recently? Some believe the answer is related to the fact technology is now mature enough to address the most common concerns regarding social learning in the workplace, such as tracking, recognition, and security.

Additionally, as more Gen Y (millennial) workers enter the workplace, the needs and demands for a more social learning experience will increase exponentially, as such tools and modalities have been a part of this generation’s DNA. Social learning technologies have a huge impact on several enterprise core processes, from recruiting to training and developing talent. And there’s more: results are quickly measurable because social technologies have a direct and obvious effect on performance. The route from social learning to informal learning is very short.

Social media Business and industry Usage: Current and Past

Learners in this sample were established users of social media for their own personal use, with 77% on Facebook, 69% on YouTube and 36% on Twitter. When it comes to using social media sites for personal learning, YouTube is king!  It’s vast repository of searchable, immediately available content makes it the number one choice to fill in missing skills. The familiarity, availability and experience of accessing YouTube should not be ignored by L&D leaders looking to engage staff in online learning.

However, the proportion using other social media tools for personal learning is significantly less:

  • 52% YouTube
  • 17% Google+
  • 12% Pinterest
  • 10% LinkedIn
  • 6% Facebook
  • 5% Twitter
  • 3% Instagram

5% are using in-house company systems such as SharePoint or internal social networks (e.g., Yammer) for their own learning, as well as over 20% using these tools for work.

Sample Description:

In December 2015, 3,563 people took part in a Towards Maturity Learning Landscape™

survey. These were individuals who were taking part in Filtered’s online programmes around the globe. They were largely familiar with online learning and able to select from a range of subjects to meet their needs. The study was set up independently by Towards Maturity to mirror earlier Learner Voice reports about learners in the workplace. 73% of the participants either fully paid or partially paid for their learning with Filtered. Some were indeed employed, but this group of learners were learning independently and in their own time and critically, paying for their own learning outside any workplace. In this report we focus on the responses from these 2,084 individuals.

55% of these learners were from North America/Canada, 27% from the UK.
