This week we worked quite a lot with different platforms. What we did is we chose several on-line platforms that seemed like they could be useful to us and our NGO partner. We decided on criteria we wanted to focus on, to see which website would result the most promising after being rated. The websites we looked at were Innocentive, Collaborating Minds, Enviu and Farmhack. After rating all of them we drew a spidergram showing us how similar or different the websites are to each other.
After these weeks working on project community I realized that I had to become active again on my social networks due to several reasons. One just being to keep in contact with my group. I hadn’t been using my Facebook for quite some while now because I had the feeling I just wasted time on there. Which was actually true. So I stopped using my Facebook. However now i realized that i do have to use it because i makes contact with other people so much easier. I’m not just talking about Facebook but in my case it would be just Facebook. I was never the person who would post something for everybody to see because maybe I was too lazy to actually find something to post or just annoyed with the many stupid posts you read nowadays.
Now Facebook isn’t the only platform i am now active with. The most obvious one right now is this one! Tumblr. Otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this ;). The last platform is Basecamp, but i don’t really see it that way. I see it as a handy tool where you can share information like Dropbox, but with more functions like a calender where you can create events. I think this is very useful.
That would be all. See ya!
