  • So aim for the morning is that in 25 minutes time you will be better equipped to Make a choice on what to do Make a choice on what not to do But - In the context of the social media iceberg – we’re looking at tiny part
  • Best thing since sliced bread... Or emperors’ new clothes? Some words used to describe social networking ASK FOR OTHERS
  • Basically connecting and sharing so we get this Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 User-generated content Social networking sites Social media
  • Going to talk about twitter now
  • My timeline ASK – who has twitter ID? If not – advice is – don’t make it too long Mention debate from #faith2point0 about anonymity & identity Can protect tweets Picture of you or not of you
  • But it’s not just me, that would be dull, and anyway I know what I have been doing!
  • Corporate accounts I follow Business tweeters eg LNB, BBC, NRES, Radio4, Robin Lustig, Evan Davis – individual journalists AND programmes When you shout at the radio via @BBCRadio4, sometimes it shouts back Use it like an RSS feed Follow other people’s conferences – great if combined with livestreaming Reduces the distance between us and them
  • My timeline Yes really is a Digitalnun & I saw her presenting yesterday
  • So that’s the why – now the how Via the web Via your smartphone Twitter.com; Tweetdeck; Osfoora, Hootsuite, a million others Update Twitter, Linked In &Facebook at the same time (think carefully)
  • ASK – who’s used hashtags? Hashtags URL shorteners Archives and search Conference back channel - #hecklemerwin Tweets for notes or tweets for broadcast Incessant RTs But conversations across continents (SLA in NOLA & SLA virtual)
  • Search by hashtag example
  • Local tweets – in Colchester trivial and badly spelled Trending topics – not really ever used these but good way of seeing what is going on in the world – identifies what people are talking about ‘ Favourite’ tweets – hang on to them a bit longer – or use Instapaper – brilliant service
  • Record keeping Sharing links Joining in discussions A place to write Free platforms More than 140 characters – relationship between the two
  • 100 million members Business-oriented Free or premium Facebook for grownups? Discussion groups – open or closed – focused on communities LIKE runs via Linked In
  • Balance sharing too much & not letting people know who you are Split profiles? I may wish I had split me vs librarian vs PhD student Use lists and searches to organise tweets Play nicely
