    • DM110 Emerging Web Media Dr. John Breslin [email_address] http://sw.deri.org/~jbreslin/ Week 8: Content Sharing
    • Content sharing
      • We’ve already looked at some types of content sharing:
        • Text (blogs, wikis)
        • Audio (podcasts)
        • Video (vodcasts)
      • As well as these, there are many other types of content that can be shared:
        • Maps
        • Bookmarks
        • Photos
        • Events
        • Presentations (slides)
        • Reviews (books, movies, music)
        • Feed subscriptions, etc.
    • Content++
      • Content has been included in web pages for some time
        • “ Embedded links”
      • Content that is posted on “Web 2.0” sites brings some new features:
        • Content is linked to the creator
        • Content can be shared to the public
        • Content can be tagged for easy classification and retrieval
          • In content containers
        • Comments can be added to content items
        • You can be notified about new content via RSS feeds
          • More about this in the next lecture
    • Google Maps
    • Satellite images from Google
    • Google Maps API
    • Walkies?
    • Sharing maps with UseAMap.com (Vinny Glennon)
    • Publishing photos with Flickr
    • Using Flickr
      • You now must now login with a Yahoo! account
        • Flickr is owned by Yahoo!
      • Upload some pictures:
        • Select some image from your hard drive
        • Add tags
        • Can mark regions of interest and annotate them (“add note”)
      • Don’t forget to “choose your Flickr web address” if you want to get a permanent URL
      • Then you will get something like:
        • http://www.flickr.com/photos/yourUserName/
        • http://www.flickr.com/people/yourUserName/
    • Flickr is useful for…
      • … adding text (descriptions) and tags (keywords) to your pictures
      • … organising your pictures:
        • By date (upload or real “taken on” date using EXIF) - “organizer” tab
        • By tag, description, etc. - “search” tab
      • … controlling who can access your photos:
        • Can define each picture’s visibility:
          • Private, public, only friends, only family
    • Flickr is also useful for…
      • … adding and getting comments on each picture
      • … social networking:
        • You can add (Flickr) friends and exchange messages with them
        • You can create groups and belong to other’s created groups
      • ...uploading and publishing photos in various ways:
        • Can upload pictures to Flickr by e-mail, or using desktop utilities
        • Can also publish your pictures to your blog (or website using “badges”)
    • Flickr disadvantages
      • You cannot export your data
      • You cannot modify (can only rotate) your pictures
      • You have to pay if you want:
        • To allow higher resolution (>800x600) viewing of your images
        • To create more photo sets (limited to three in the free version)
        • To be able to post to more than 10 groups
        • To upload many (large) pictures, since the free version is limited to 100MB transfer per month
      • Similar site called Zooomr
        • Yes, that’s three Os!
    • Recommending bookmarks
    • Quick bookmarking and tagging with del.icio.us A handy little plugin for Firefox AJAX in action
    • Your bookmark folder in del.icio.us
    • The del.icio.us tag cloud
    • How to use del.icio.us
      • Register at http://del.icio.us and:
        • You will get a public URL, and your username will be at the end of the URL, like http://del.icio.us/Cloudie
      • Start adding your favourite URLs:
        • Add a page, e.g. http://teaching.deri.ie/ and then:
          • Add tags (for example: “personal cool nuigalway course student”)
          • A tag is a one word descriptor (for example, homePage, myName) so it is probably best to avoid punctuation marks, and you can also use “camelCase” if you like it
      • Add buttons for “quick access” to del.icio.us in your browser:
        • See http://del.icio.us/help/buttons
    • What’s useful or new about del.icio.us?
      • Your bookmarks “escape” from your PC:
        • Become accessible from anywhere
        • Unlock the hidden data on your desktop
      • Your bookmarks are public:
        • Anyone can view them
        • You can view everybody else’s
      • You can subscribe to other people’s bookmarks
      • You can send bookmarks to other (registered) people:
        • See the “for” and “inbox” tags
    • What else is cool about del.icio.us?
      • You can export all your information:
        • Under “settings”, “export”
      • When you want “different boxes”, you can classify your tags using bundles
      • You can create / delete your bundles:
        • Click on “arrange tags”
      • A new way of visualisation, the “cloud view”:
        • You can see a simple list of your tags, or you can view them in a cloud - try it!
    • Tell others about community events
    • Sharing presentations with SlideShare
      • Embed in pages
      • Bookmark any slide
