  1. 1. These are only a few of the search engines.
  2. 2. So many choices means so many answers… …right?
  3. 3. Photo from- http://www.idealaunch.com/blog/wp- content/uploads/2009/12/internet-marketing-strategy-traffic1.jpg With such an abundance of search engines, there is an increasing number of people who use the Internet to not only find information but also add their own.
  4. 4. “Information Overload IS a term coined by American technological writer and futurist Alvin Toffler, and refers to an excess amount of information being provided, making the processing and absorbing of tasks very difficult for the individual because sometimes we can't see the validity behind the information” (Benjamin, 2009).

  7. 7. As time went by it became clear that instead of people losing their sanity with the availability of so much information… …people adapted.
  8. 8. “We do not worry about losing our minds so much as not being able to find the information we need” (Weinberger, 2010).
  9. 9. “The Gatekeeper allows one to connect IP networks between an organization (the internal networks) and the Internet or any other network (the external networks). It allows one to do this interconnection with respect to the users’ needs and to the security policy which has been defined” (Schauer, Wolfhugel).

  12. 12. The government may use gatekeepers in order to restrict access to information deemed unacceptable for the public such as information about wars. Information like this would have a gatekeeper to prevent mass chaos from the public. Picture From- http://newsbytes.com.au/wp- content/uploads/2010/09/restricted-access-620x361.jpg

In regards to the government, there are hackers that sit at their computers for hours in order to break into the governments secrets.

  18. 18. “Social bookmarking is the practice of saving bookmarks to a public Web site and “tagging” them with keywords. Bookmarking, on the other hand, is the practice of saving the address of a Web site you wish to visit in the future on your computer” (Educause Learning Initiative, 2005).
  19. 19. “Activities like social bookmarking give users the opportunity to express differing perspectives on information and resources through informal organizational structures” (Educause Learning Initiative, 2005).
  20. 20. “A folksonomy is a type of distributed classification system. It is usually created by a group of individuals, typically the resource users. Users add tags to online items, such as images, videos, bookmarks and text. These tags are then shared and sometimes refined” (Guy, Tonkin, 2006).

  26. 26. Picture From- http://www.synerjis.co.uk/portfolio/media/bubbl es/Bubbles%20White%201024%20x%20768.jpg “Wikis combine features of websites and word processors to create a new kind of application that allows multiple authors to write and edit content” (Flierl, Fowler, 2007).
  27. 27. The most well known, and best example of a wiki, is Wikipedia.
  28. 28. WIKI Wikis use the collaborative knowledge and information from a multitude of people in order to enhance the wiki. Because so many people are allowed to access different wikis they continue to grow.
  29. 29. Advantages to Wikis • People can contribute their own thoughts and ideas to share with others • Editing is easily available and accessible Picture From- http://sergimateo.com/wp- content/2009/02/wiki.gif
  30. 30. Disadvantage to Wikis Because they are so easily accessible to everyone they are very prone to being vandalised. There are many IP addresses that are blocked from different wikis such as Wikipedia.
