05 – Social Networking

I’m starting to think that social networking sites are like databases – some try to to be as massive as possible where others try to be as specific as possible.

  1. Start with the Common Craft Show’s short video called Social Networking In Plain English (http://www.commoncraft.com/video-social-networking).
  2. Browse through the start pages of these different social networking sites:
  3. If those aren’t enough for you, or you want to explore further, check out these sites – some have a very specific focus.
  4. Also, check out Ning (http://www.ning.com/) Grou.ps (http://grou.ps/introduction.php) and elgg (http://elgg.org/) – sites where you can build your own social networking site.
  5. Write a blog post about which social networking sites you like best. Compare and contrast, even.
  6. Tag each of these sites in your del.icio.us account.
