Connected – World Wide

If you want to get more connected you have to meet people. You might ask why on earth do I want to meet strangers – well sometimes, in fact quite often, strangers who are interested in the things you are intersested in are quite helpful (and, of course, interesting). Get out there start a blog, join Twitter, join Facebook, join Academia.edu, join Flickr, join Second Life, etc, etc. Join them all together so that friends from one area meet friends from another. Here, get started with the help from this blog post at, “Blogging about the web”.
I was at a UCISA event last Wednesday and was very impressed by what some universities are doing with social media. I think the best example was this one from Imperial College London. Amongst other things they are using Storify to create a single entity from pieces they gather on special days or occassions – like graduation for example. Anyone want to have a go?
