  8. 8. What is a Widget?
  9. 9. A widget is an embedded device that provides some level of value to the publisher. This is somewhat akin to what Facebook has done with their ‘F8 Platform’, and more notably ‘Applications’. Once a user adds a given' Application’, it appears on their profile page, where other users can see it and interact with it (or even add it themselves).
  10. 10. What is a WIKI? Will WIKIpedia one day officially replace Encyclopedia as more reliable source in YOUR eyes?
  11. 11. Wikis - By definition, a wiki is a collaborative space that can be edited by anyone with access to the site. This notion of participation and cooperation creates a more productive, usable information portal for all affiliated members. Facebook has rebranded this concept as ‘Groups’. Within a given group, you are able to start a conversation (with a message), add photos, and provide simple commentary. Furthermore, administrators and officers have added control and functionality.
  12. 12. What are Blogs? You better know before they become passé!
  13. 13. Blogs - When a user writes a ‘Note’ on Facebook, they are expressing their thoughts or opinions in a given manner. A collection of these notes, in reverse chronological order, can be classified as a ‘weblog’ or blog. The offline concept of a diary has been around for centuries. It doesn’t take a huge leap of faith to consider a jump into the online world.
