The Next Social Networks Will Be Powered By WordPress and Movable Type - ReadWriteWeb - 0 views

  • With both of the big players extending their traditional blogging platforms to offer social networking features, you have to wonder if traditional blogging is on its way out. For many years, web pundits have been saying that social networking would gain in popularity to such an extent that it would become a feature, not a destination in and of itself. These latest designs from MT and WordPress seem to prove that point

Userplane Re-Invents the Message Board - 0 views

  • Why is Userplane getting into message boards now, when the format has seemingly been supplanted by other forms of online community? According to Product Manager Shane Hall, who I spoke with last week, Boards represents a happy medium between passive and real-time conversation.

    Hi there,

    Hmm, don't know if I'm the only one who is still a bit confused regarding this course. I had some idea that there should have been a class this week (meaning tuesday at 3pm local aussie time) - like last week. But I found myself alone in the class, so guess I missed something.

    Does anyone have any ideas if classes have been moved or?

BBC NEWS | Technology | Pull down the walled gardens - 0 views

  • Unlike the global internet, which enables virtually the entire world to connect, social networks have created very large, localised communities with far more limited international interaction.

    Indeed they are. Facebook is legendary for allowing a lot of users to enter information into Facebook, but not to be able to take it out again. At the same time there's a problem as google can't search Facebook. It will be interesting however, to see how the new Facebook Connect will work out, which is an attempt from Facebook to open up their walled garden - see http://bit.ly/ZKgwj

    ooops! sorry... obviously I have no clue how to control the comments here on Diigo, they keep coming up, somewhere else than where I thought they would be...

    @Joao: yes, I definitely think that local communities can be seen as online communities. In fact, according to Wikipedia, here online communities are described as: "Virtual communities depend upon social interaction and exchange between users online. This emphasizes the reciprocity element of the unwritten social contract between community members. Web 2.0 is essentially characterized by virtual communities such as Flickr, Facebook, and Del.icio.us. A similar trend is starting to emerge within businesses where online or virtual communities are taking hold. These communities can be organizational, regional or topical depending on the business." "Organizational, regional or topical" - I think we can add technical to this list. Btw. it seems like wiki use the terms "online" and "virtual" interchangeably. PS. Can anyone teach me how to make comments on Diigo? Why don´t comments automatically follow each other from oldest to newest? Mine seems to all be stuck together no matter what I do.

    Can walled gardens continue thrive in an era of openness? Can a social network be social even though so little of the community's value is visible to the outside world? Facebook is writing this book as we speak.
