  • All browsers have bookmark functionality – so when you’re on a site you can bookmark it. It does rely using the same hardware although you can import and export bookmark.Online services are being used more and more Lets’ look at Scoop.it as an example
  • Essentially this creates a collection of sites that are focused on a particular topic with very visual and dynamic elements.
  • You follow others like Twitter and vice versa / and can make suggestions to others who get an email to say that there is a suggestion pending.
  • Creates a magazine type resource that can be embedded in other websites and social media applications.
  • This type of magazine is fed info dynamically from other social media applications and feeds you subscribe to and is displayed in a magazine format
  • Paper.li – updated every 24 hours – daily / weekly / associated with social media accounts(twitter/facebook/google+/feeedreader
  • Twitter users can create a “Back Channel” of commentary, with links to related stuff and can add value – conferences that you are unable to attend can be followed – it can be used to disseminate information about up and coming events and activities. Join by creating a user name and password, accept terms and condition and that’s you - Be discerning about who you follow – twitter helps by making suggestions once you become active using your history.
  • So lots of TV shows are using hash tags – but they also are being createdSearch around first in case of inappropriate info already using hash tagLast about two weeks once they stopped being used.
  • Images on the move – twit pics / instagram /
  • Tweets and hash tags have an expiration date on them.While they never really disappear from your own Twitter stream, they become unsearchable in only a matter of days – Storify provides a mechanism for recording and archiving tweets.
