Why be online? http://bigbible.org.uk/2011/06/whats-all-this-about-digidisciple-then/ An incredible new technology enables the transmission of text on a worldwide base. It rapidly reduces production and distribution costs and for the first time allows large numbers of people to access text and pictures in their own homes. Gutenberg, 1440s “The new technologies will bring “every individual… into immediate and effortless communication with every other,” “practically obliterate” political geography, and make free trade universal. Thanks to technological advance, “there [are] no longer any foreigners,” and we can look forward to “the gradual adoption of a common language.” Telegraph, 1893 http://postmodernbible.blogs.com/postmodernbible/2011/06/seven-principles-of-of-new-media-in-a-digital-age-2.html Image by Andrew Flynn Twitter Relationships Pre-face-to-face Shared interests

face-to-face Facebook, created in 2004, has changed recently changed its core user base of 18-34 year olds to 35-65 year olds. Facebook famously has over eight-hundred million active users worldwide, with a successful targeted paid-for advertising model, and third party applications are key. Interest groups can create Group Pages, whilst fan-pages offer more marketing potential. Facebook is typically used to maintain friendships with people already known in the ‘offline world’, making viral campaigns successful. RELATIONSHIP

THINK: Why would people give you their time?
How often will you tweet?
Will you use one or multiple accounts?
If tweeting as a brand who will be your 'face'?
Have you access to a smartphone?
What will be your "keywords"/hashtags? #HASHTAGS A hash tag is simply a way for people to search for tweets that have a common topic. For example, if you search on #LOST (or #Lost or #lost, because it's not case-sensitive), you'll get a list of tweets related to the TV show. What you won't get are tweets that say "I lost my wallet yesterday" because "lost" isn't preceded by the hash tag.

Not time/geographically dependent
A "Retweet" (RT) is a true compliment
#Hashtags are core to usability
Third party apps increase the usability Blogging What is a blog?
A reverse diary (most recent entry first)
“Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, Web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog http://churchmousepublishing.blogspot.com/ http://pmphillips.posterous.com/ http://www.peter-ould.net/ Think About
