What’s a wiki?
What’s social bookmarking?
So how can a blog
work for you?
Twitter is a kind of public instant messenger stream. You go online or on your mobile device and send text messages (”tweets”) of up to 140 characters — or about one sentence long. Your tweets can be read by others, and you can sign up to follow the messages others write so that you can read theirs.
What’s a wiki?
a Wiki is a type of website that allows the visitors to add, remove, and sometimes edit the available content. This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for collaborative authoring.
What is social bookmarking?
store, tag and share links across the internet.
share links with friends… and people with similar interests.
access links from any computer.

Makes information portable – you can access your bookmarks anywhere
Connects your information and you to others
You can involve others in your research-project management
Must agree to tags
Can’t stop people tagging your content – even stuff you don’t want associated with you
Bookmarks can go out of date

Patients and carers can find out what other people think of local hospitals, hospices and mental health services.
And lots of people share the story of what happened to them or their family when they were ill.
Most important of all patients and carers can tell it like it is - patients and carers know what the service was like and come up with lots of great ideas about how it could be better.
