2) Tools we use


Tweetdeck - a personal browser for following Twitter tweets or Facebook updates.


Twhirl - "the social software client"


Visible Tweets - a cool website that displays a visualization of tweets.


TweetTabs - a website that offers, like tweetdeck, a way of organizing what you're following


Twazzup - a search site for hot topics on twitter


Hootsuite - another cool site that lets you stagger your tweets (so everyone thinks you work all night long!) 


Twtpoll - create polls that you can tweet--or access via a URL; can work like aspects of a personal response/clicker system


Visible Tweets - twitter visualizations -- this example showing Julia's tweets since she is unable to join our session in person :-)


What do you know about your network (or potential network) and twitter habits? 


Tanalyst - stats and other unnecessary but intriguing data


Twitter Charts - what time of day and week do you and people you know tweet?


Twittervision - tweets displayed on a world map


Twittermania - Do you still want more?


Some basics:



Facebook -


Twitter -  "a free social messaging utility for staying connected in real-time."


Diigo - "a powerful research tool and a knowledge-sharing community." - A networked, sophisticated del.icio.us type site.


Delicious -a social bookmarking site, allows for subscriptions to keep you current with new entries by tags (keywords) or networks (users on the system whose content you choose to follow)
