In this paper, the authors present how advanced social media platforms can be exploited as personal learning environments, thanks to the core concept of shared spaces. The usefulness of open plugins to collect resources from the cloud in such dedicated contextual spaces is discussed. The mechanisms for the personalization of spaces from an interaction point of view once populated with resources and their sharing across platforms are also detailed. Results are illustrated with the case of the Graasp platform developed in the framework of european research projects.
