Getting More Out of Twitter

Getting More Out of Twitter

Regardless of whether you are into Twitter or not, most people will acknowledge it has been the killer application for 2007. For such a simple application, Twitter has many layers, and it was overwhelming me thankfully my readers helped me out yesterday to get my Twitter magic back. Martin Weller highlighted that effective management of twitter lies with: Processes i.e. how many people you choose to follow, how you choose who to follow and your purpose for using twitter Technical…

Help Me Get My Twitter Magic Back!

Help Me Get My Twitter Magic Back!

Lately I am feeling like I have lost the Twitter love. Life was fine when I was only following 150 people but now past 200 I am finding it hard to ensure I don’t miss the important conversations. Twitter is a very important source for the latest news within our networks — look at the impact on Michele’s quick post as a result of twitter. If you have not got into Twitter and are wondering what all the fuss is…

One Page Guides For Engaging Others!

One Page Guides For Engaging Others!

Tim Davies has been working really hard producing a series of one page getting started guides with the goal: that each sheet should take someone from not knowing what a particular social media tool is, nor how they would use it – to at least having taken the first steps to using it in a sensible and sustainable way. And it should do that in no more than one side of A4. The Guides can be downloaded as either a…

Are You Going To Be More Sharing And Caring?

Are You Going To Be More Sharing And Caring?

Depending on your love of Google Reader you will either be grateful that Google has given us an early Christmas present or be concerned, like me, that you may need to change your sharing habits. For those who don’t use Google Reader, or who have no idea what I am talking about, Google has linked Reader with Google Talk so now all your shared items will be visible to your friends from Google Talk, and vice versa. You will have…

Getting More Out Of Flickr

Getting More Out Of Flickr

Flickr was a Web 2.0 tool that initially did not grab me because I didn’t get the idea of sharing photos online. Now I can’t live without Flickr, and it offers so much, that it is definitely worth taking the time to learn how to use more effectively. If you are new to Flickr I strongly recommend that you check out Josh Lowensohn’s Newbie’s Guide to Flickr and Alan Levine’s What we can do with Flickr (especially the links below…

Christmas Bling For The Blog

Christmas Bling For The Blog

I believe it may be called “Snow Envy”? But I have never felt a strong feeling or need for a White Christmas until my twitter network twittered about snow days, snow is falling or my first snowman for the year. You see many West Australians never get to see snow unless we travel a very, very loooooong way to NSW Snowy Mountains, Victorian High Country, Tasmania or another country. I can but dream of a White Christmas but at least…

Google has just added some more features to Google Reader so I thought it was appropriate to write a new post to update my post on Getting More Out of Google Reader.

The two new features are: Recommendations Recommendations have been added to Google Reader to…

Quick Tips For Videos

Part of my work involves teaching others how to podcast and when it comes to video my advice always is STOP! and LOOK! first before you consider ever creating your own videos. You can spend a lot of time creating videos — I know I spend way too much time creating videos for my podcast site. There is sooooo much content already on the Internet that it is often more efficient to use videos created by others. I recommend searching…
