I am going to explain how to read blogs and make the blog tools work together, illustrating this with the tools Suprglu and Netvibes. I will talk about social tagging, also called Folksonomies, by demonstrating Flickr photo album sharing by tagging
I will also discuss how we can use Technorati and how we can tag blogs
Example: You have a blog, you need a picture to illustrate the story “Red shoes” by H.C. Andersen. You can search the tag redshoes (about 250 photos) and decide on a picture, click on “blog this”,write text and heading your blog entry.
