This presentation is from the third in a series of four seminars on social media, designed for and presented to faculty and staff at a medical school. This was an introductory level seminar series.
"In this seminar, we will dig into the Google products catalog and examine the social, or collaborative, functions of popular applications: Google Calendar, Google Sites, Google Reader, Google Groups, Google Maps, and demonstrate customizing your Google Account Profile and creating an iGoogle homepage. We’ll take a look at campus use of Google Search and talk about how Google indexes our web pages. To close, we’ll take a peek at Google Labs and their beta products."

  • Description: Google is not just a search engine. Google is the brand name of an extensive suite of web applications that are freely available and ready to use. With a Google account, you have access to dozens of different tools for communication and collaboration. In this seminar, we will dig into the Google products catalog and examine the social, or collaborative, functions of popular applications: Google Calendar, Google Sites, Google Reader, Google Groups, Google Maps, and demonstrate customizing your Google Account Profile and creating an iGoogle homepage. We’ll take a look at campus use of Google Search and talk about how Google indexes our web pages. To close, we’ll take a peek at Google Labs and their beta products.

  • Privacy considerations: Does Google share my information, such as my age or email address?What does Google know about me and how do they use that information?How much control do I have?
  • These settings can be modified any time!!http://www.google.com/profiles
  • Most recently. Google released Buzz, a controversial Gmail communication tool that created a media frenzy. Google released Buzz to ALL GMAIL Users essentially releasing their email addresses to each other. Google should have made it an opt-in tool like other products and not an opt-out tool, since many Gmail users don’t know anything, or know very little, about controlling their personal settings.Read: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2362278,00.asp http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/08/google-buzz-exposes-white_n_530651.html http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/technology/2010/03/lawmakers-investigate-google-buzz.html

    • 26. Privacy Policy
      Before registering with any website or web service, review their privacy policy and learn about security of your personal information.
      Most of Google’s products have unique features and a broad variety of uses. Read individual privacy policies, too.
      Because many of Google’s products work together or can be ‘mashed up’, your security settings may affect how you use these tools.
