I was semi-amazed recently at the ease with which I took in all those social media/networking/sharing services when I came across a really helpful, organized list in a Widget (of all things) in the Big City Theme by MNKYstudio.
He had organized some of the best websites and applications used for social networking by category in his Widget. I really appreciated his work. I didn’t realize it would only get me started.
I’ve added only a few services (LinkedIn, Scribd, Google+, etc.) in hopes of not overwhelming even myself. This is by no means a complete list of what’s out there. If you want to see the whole thing, there’s quite a conversation going on.
You’ve got a website (or are thinking about one) – how many should you be talking on?
And that’s not even all of them – wow. Seeing them in categories like that, for whatever reason, really helped.
I’m sure organizing these services is old news, and popularity seems to rise and fall, but I liked the moment in time where it dawned on me that these many sites, for this crazy world of who’s doing what where and how, could be semi-organized.
How many ways can we say, “Hello”?
Life it totally relationships.
