The friendship Wheel

The friendship Wheel

Whilst looking at another person’s Facebook profile I noticed something. Two thirds of the people were connected to each other yet one third had no connections. It made me think about the nature of the friendship wheel and how it demonstrates how you use facebook. If you use facebook for real world friends and connections then the friend wheel will show that the connections are many and diverse. Everyone knows everyone else and there is a real sense of community….

The year the Internet lost the cloak of anonimity.

The year the Internet lost the cloak of anonimity.

This has to be the year where I have met the most people online before meeting them in person, which is quite amusing. It’s also the year that warzabidul as a nickname became a person in the physical world to more than two or three people. It’s the year an online person become a nickname for a real person. It’s the year where, at least for early adopters, Twitter and Seesmic both helped create opportunities for people to meet and…

The Seesmeetup

The Seesmeetup

It’s taken no more than a few days from the time I first saw Fred2baro on seesmic to our first meeting with Deek in London for the first Seesmeetup… so called. In fact it was both Sizemore that had the first meeting although more private in nature. One of the questions that one of Fred2baro’s relatives asked was why would you want to be part of Seesmic? Aren’t people pretend and fake? Aren’t you uncomfortable with this? My answer was…

The social media Living Room

The social media Living Room

Yesterday afternoon I dropped by Nik’s house, (Loudmouthman) for what would be the first Social Media Living room event. The idea is simple. Participants of Social Media, whether through Twitter, Seesmic and other networks meet in the physical world to have nice conversations. Quite a few people turned up including Fred2baro, Danacea, Mark Harrison, Jason Jarrett and one or two other individuals. we talked about tech and about life. The point is that to create a podcamp takes too much…

The new side of things

The new side of things

If you’ve got a lot of time but not much new content to surf through then the perfect place for you is seesmic because that’s where you can chat to 5-10 friends and listen to what you have to say. If you’re busy on the other hand just turn to twitter where your instant needs will be addressed immediately. I’m thinking of this because I really think that people are using it (seesmic) as a forum. What makes a forum…

The Social media birthday, what is this stupid phrase about?

The Social media birthday, what is this stupid phrase about?

Birthdays, until recently were about being with friends, birthday presents and good meals. Today however they have moved into the digital era, as a result of our ever more international lifestyle. Many of us travel between countries at least once a month whilst some of do so more often. Others of us have friends that have moved away and so we miss their company. That’s where the social media come in. The social media are media created by those with…

Social media girlfriends

Social media girlfriends

I like the social media and I spend a lot of time with them. Occasionally i meet the people involved in real life and so the social media are no longer quite as interesting, although of course I still have fun with them. One of the things I’ve been thinking is the term social media girlfriend. What would require for a person to be a social media girlfriend? What does it require in the physical world? Conversation for a start….

Why i dislike how people use Facebook.

Why i dislike how people use Facebook.

Facebook was a great idea. It was great because it was an online method by which to meet people within your network and to get to know them before you drop by the bar. It was especially good for those who are shy. As more people started using it though something bad happened. Mid and late adopters started using the website. In itself this is a great thing because it means that you can find man friends and communicate with…

The Vienna feed reader.

The Vienna feed reader.

Here I am at 33,000 feet and I’ve been going through two days worth of RSS feed material whilst offline using Vienna. I’ve been getting a vast amount of data and I’m more inspired to write. I hadn’t really thought of downloading feeds until documentally of Ourmaninside told me about the browser. It’s a simple browser. You export your feeds from greader as an OPML and import it. All your feeds are added and downloaded to the hard disk for…

Seesma Forum – Seesmic as a video based forum

Seesma Forum – Seesmic as a video based forum

When I first saw seesmic I thought of it as a video version of twitter but that point of view has shifted. I now think of it as an online video forum where video messages have replaced both text and pictures. I would expect many more websites of the sort to grow and it will see in a new era in social interactions on the web. What I question is how long this video chatting website will last. Is there…
