  • In a nutshell, it’s people getting together because they share a common bond in some way, shape or form
  • Also called the Social Web or Social Internet
  • Examples of many Web 2.0 tools currently available We are focusing on four tools today: Social Networks, Wikis, Micromedia, and Social Bookmarks
  • Popular sites, today I’m going to demonstrate Facebook, the largest and fastest growing social networking site August 2009: “ 92 million visitors, up 5 percent from the previous month. ” Linked in is focused on working networks MySpace is loosing popularity
  • Use different names for work and home (perhaps use your nickname for home use) Combined accounts mix work and after-work – may find new connections with co-workers and friends (use the example of Ryan Schmessing, national 4-h looking for autism researchers) Fan page advantages: no automatic connection to your personal site, multiple admins, updates automatically fed to your “fans” Groups: connected to your personal FB page, can be private. No auto updates, tho
  • Show my personal site status wall/updates friends list privacy settings CE Tech Services Fan site fans events e-learning professionals Group site (click on groups icon – lower left)
  • Show blog – point out Facebook privacy tips
  • Show personal twitter account (firefox) – add a status Show facebook status update Show cets twitter account (chrome) @username can send public replies by including this in your tweet #keyword common keywords for tracking Use #uwexce for work-related tweets RT retweet (copying and pasting another tweet)
  • Click on socialnetdemo to follow it
  • Twitter is its own cottage industry, spawning many products to manage twitter and/or enhance it
  • best practices (includes security advice and records retention suggestions)
