We live in a day and age where sharing information on the Internet isn’t as scary as it used to be. With the concept of “Symantec Web” becoming more commonplace among web developers it’s really paving the way for computer systems to talk to other computer systems. With that said; I can’t help, but want to share all the toys and integration that web 2.0 has to offer. Below are a couple of web applications that I’ve installed. If you’re want to join the fun click on any one of them and create an account.
- Community ID – An open source login matrix designed to be a single point-of-entry to various web sites.
- ThinkUp – A social media metrics dashboard (Facebook, Twitter, etc) created by the founder of LifeHacker.com, Gina Trapani. The server is set to scrape the social networks and pick up data about your interaction every hour. Once there’s a decent amount of data indexed the reports will be very useful to you.
My Other Social Networks
- Flickr [www.flickr.com/people/fergatron] – Community to share pictures.
- Twitter [www.twitter.com/FergatROn] – Community to share your current status, in real time.
- Identica [www.identi.ca/FergatROn] – Same type of community as Twitter, but it’s open source.
- Ping.fm – a neat little site that allows you to update multiple social networks with one post. Very handy.
- Plurk [www.plurk.com/user/FergatROn] – Very interactive website and community to share your status and chat about it too.
- MySpace [www.myspace.com/marcff] – Community to share your profile.

There are many others, such as: forums, mailing lists (usually FOSS-related), etc.
