: A number of writers have identified (and argued about) the importance of either the group or the network as a significant player when social software is used for e-learning. This paper examines the two competing perspectives of network and group and identifies that there are, in fact, three distinct dynamics of the 'Many' in social software, which are characterised here as the group, the network and the collective. The paper explores the consequences of this perspective, observing that each has both strengths and weaknesses in different contexts and when used for different applications. A model for the development of e-learning tools and processes is proposed that makes best use of each mode of interaction.
