  2. 2.

  4. 4. Trend AND Tool <ul><li>Welcome to the Web </li></ul><ul><li>Happening more & more as people find ways to connect online </li></ul><ul><li>Involves 3 rd -party server but accessed through your Web browser </li></ul><ul><li>www.commoncraft.com/show has video but it only touches the surface </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t underestimate the power of the Dark Side , I mean, the Web http://youtube.com/watch?v=NLlGopyXT_g “The Machine is Us/ing Us” (Final Version) by Prof. M. Wesch </li></ul>
  5. 5. What is Social Networking? <ul><li>A way of using web sites and linking with other people’s web sites and using the content and links from those web sites in a way that is analogous to how humans socialize. </li></ul><ul><li>That’s what this presentation is about… let’s explore it. </li></ul>
