I have just done a mini audit of the web2:0 technology, 'social networking' tools I am using (as part of a report on developements in Asia) A few years back I wouldn't have understood half of the terms.
This Blog ‘Wandering4loveofGod’ (50 posts so far in 2009)
Facebook (422 friends) ‘CMS-Asia’ Group (84 members) SACYN (99), sacred:space (40) TWITTER (36 followers), Plaxo (37 connections), and now 'kindling – big fires start small'. a CMS Network that I have just joined.
Then there are the Yahoo Groups: ‘faithconversations’(110), people_movement (73) ISAAC (55) CMSRegional (15) MAGI_Asia (2). All groups, or 'communities of practice', that I am helping to motivate. And that's just some of them. They are very basic - simple email forwarding systems. And some are more functional and popular than others.
So far I've failed to upload a video to YouTube (I've produced 2 of my own videos) and whist I have a Flickr account I've yet to upload pictures. (I've got so many - where to start!?) 'The virtual/spirit is willing but the physical/flesh is weak'
I'm finding it all takes an inordinate amount of time. I trust that it is all worth it.
Any thoughts/ suggestions/ encouragements?
Is there anyone out there??
