Social Web Literacy

We'll be discussing the Social Web and how knowing about it can help us make libraries more relevant to our social web savvy patrons.

Friday, June 15, 2007

Anyone can share their thoughts.
Some gifted writers in generations past were known for their personal diaries and journals. In today's Social Web, anyone can have a blog -- basically a public journal. Clearly, some are better than others, but the average person has probably never had the freedom of expression than he/she has today.
People blog about politics, sports, their travels, experiences, familes, pets, gardens, cooking preferences -- whatever. You can create a blog to express anything you want it to, or to communicate any message you wish to put out there. The collection of these blogs is social in nature itself, by the interaction and discussions ON the individual blogs makes the social dynamic even greater.
Blogs are just one of the social web tools available to people today. We've looked at plenty of others in class today. Now, it's your turn. Explore, participate, interact. It's YOUR Internet.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
to make your point. You clearly know what youre
talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you
could be giving us something informative to read?

You can certainly see your expertise in the article you
write. The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who aren't afraid to say how they believe. Always go after your heart.
