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)
