  10. 10. Content Communities – In more detail:<br />Content communities are websites which distribute user generated content to other users of the website. Generally speaking the most popular websites are websites which deal with a specific medium, so for example YouTube shares videos across the web, and is one of the most popular user generated video sites on the web. Other mediums of Content Communities are for photos (flickr, photobucket), news stories (digg) and bookmarked links (del.icio.us).<br />

They can then add friends, talk and share information with their friends. Social networks are some of the most popular websites and there are many out there. But the most popular Social Networks are Facebook, MySpace and Bebo. They all have different variations on the Social Network idea but are all basically places where you can catch up with old friends and make some new ones.<br />
  12. 12. Podcasts – In more detail<br />Podcasts are audio and video files which can be free, or purchased through websites for users to listen to at their own desecration. The audio files can be highlights of radio shows (the Russel Brand radio show being the most infamous of these) but can also be recordings by websites, organisations or celebrities. The video files can be highlights or trailers from TV shows, clips from video Content Communities like YouTube or messages from websites, organisations or celebrities, which the user can watch at what ever time suits them best. iTunes is one of the most popular places where Podcasts can be downloaded.<br />
  13. 13. Forums – In more detail<br />Are sections within websites where content can be discussed by any user which has an account with that website. There are generally many different forums discussing different topics on websites, and each of those websites my specifiy in certain areas for discustion. So the BBC Sport website has a forums for disussing different types of sport. But theres also websites for disussing the latest game or the situation in Iraq at the moment, the list of content being discussed on these Forums is almost endless.<br />
  14. 14. Blogs – In more detail<br />A blog is content distributed by a person or a group of people onto a website. There is a vast variety of types of blogs, some might be from a Film or TV show to their Target Audience. Some might be on reviewing holidays so that people can be helped out on where to go, but they can also stretch to just one person telling the whole world how their day was. They’re almost like online journals to the world.<br />
  15. 15. Micro Blogs – In more detail<br />Much like a normal Blog, Micro Blogs are content distributed by and individual or a group of people to the world, but the amount of content which is shared is a lot smaller. The leader of the pack in Micro Blogging is the website Twitter, where the maximum amount of characters in each blog which your allowed is 185. Twitter allows users to ‘follow’ many other users at a time so that they can read different Micro Blogs on one page.<br />
