Social Tools

In Open Webpublishing we have added a lot of new tools. I would like to share them with you. The list is long but worth reading.

Suprglu is a big super blog where you can in one site view all your blogs, bookmarks and everything you have on the net.

43Places share stories about places in your city and around the world.

43Things You will find the following explanation in the site. I have never used this before. “Make a list on 43 Things and see what changes happen in your life. Best of all it’s a way of connecting with other enthusiasts interested in everything from watching a space shuttle launch to grow my own vegetables. So the next time someone asks you, “what do you do?” you can answer with confidence, “I am doing 43 things!”.

Flock This is the definition the sites provides: “It is an amazing new web browser that makes it easier to share media and connect to other people online. Share photos, automatically stay up-to-date with new content from your favorite sites, and search the Web with the most advanced Search Toolbar available today.”

Flirk is an online photo management and sharing application.

Communitywalk the site says “It is a website that is dedicated to providing a powerful yet simple and easy to use interface for creating informational, interactive, and engaging maps. ” You have to manage your way through this tool. I would suggest to read the instructions clearly before adding yourself to any map.

I personally think that Social software supports the desire of individuals to be pulled into groups to achieve goals. It´s something that is growing so fast that sooner or later everybody will be using these tools daily.

  1. I like the way you said that: “… social software supports the desire of individuals to be pulled into groups to achieve goals.”
