I use RSS feeds a good deal. Nearly everything I consider important enough to keep track of finds its way into my Google Reader. I don’t think I’d be as alert to trends and issues were it not for RSS feeds into a Reader.
I’ve been extremely fortunate that I’ve identified some blog posts that are – in my opinion- particularly good about helping me keep aware of technology as it affects higher education, and libraries. The blogs I follow have been an excellent way to be exposed social media in general. I particularly like ILibrarian, Mashable, The Day in the Life and Translitery and Libraries.
Although have a Twitter account, and do have a few things I follow, I haven’t been much of a user of it. Truth to tell, Twitter still baffles me and I struggle to see how I might actually put it to constructive use in a meaningful way. But, I expect I’ll learn more through this project and reading the comments of others. If I don’t find myself using it much throughout 23 Things, I will close the account.
I was unfamiliar with Pushnote and right now I don’t “get it.” But, I’m willing to explore it, and to learn from the comments of others.
