Do you Web 2.0?
We have all heard of Web 2.0?
We’ve all been told over and over again how it is ‘the way forward’ and the ‘next generation of Internet’. In fact you probably use it without even realising.
Most of us probably use Flickr to show our friends where we’ve been, Facebook to find out what our friends are up to. Then of course there’s Twitter to see where Brittany or Ashton are working, what they had for lunch – or who they do or don’t buy underwear from.
But did you realise that these social networking sites can be useful in business too?
How many of you have setup a blog? Your intent was to provide daily updates on your life, loves, food, work and dog/cat. Works well for a couple of days, perhaps a week, but unless you have ‘one of those brains’ it soon fallsby the wayside and gets forgotten.
Sites like FaceBook and Twitter (Ok, not technically a site) are different. They provide more of a collaborative/community blogging effort – every time someone updates you find out, every time you update they find out.
So we all get involved, some even get addicted!
Of course to know what someone is doing you still need to know they are out there – and that is the purpose of this blog. I wanted to let you know that the ZENworks Team are social networkers too… We are on FaceBook and we Twitter – in fact most of us post to Flickr too, you will just need to search a little harder :o)
