Facebook, bebo, and MySpace, now I’ve taken these three as a small example simply because they are more than likely the most three popular networking sites on the Internet within the UK.
Wiki’s, blogs and podcasts are also forms of social media giving you the user the opportunity to have your say on a particular subject or maybe even in interest you have that you want to share.
<ul><li>A blog is like a personal journal that is available to users of the Internet if you keep a blog you know as a blogger these are kept in date order with your most recent being first. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Podcasting, is like a audio broadcasting that users the Internet in the same way as an on line radio show. Podcasting involves making one or more files are available in a RSS feed. The podcast makes a list of music or audio files available for other users to receive </li></ul>
<ul><li>A wiki, is a website or even a piece of software that gives the user the ability to create and edit WebPages. Also the ability to link to other websites and share information that has been posted. </li></ul>
What’s does all this mean? Well quite simply instead of you being the viewer and the listener. you are now the creator, the editor and director you are what ever you want to be.
