Required reading this week at FreshNetworks has been this great presentation from Mike Trap on what he calls ’scalable intimacy’, the intersection between branding and social media.
Marta Kagan has created a great introduction into what social media is and isn’t. Here is her presentation on SlideShare.
FriendFeed is great for discovering, sharing and discussing content with your friends. But what if you just want to do so with a few select people–like with your neighbors–or talk about a specific topic, like the social media? Now you can get a room!
A room is like a mini FriendFeed for a particular subject or group of people. You can make a room for your family, your work team, or your bike club. Everyone in your room can share stuff with each other and leave comments that only other people in your room can see. You decide whether to make your room public, where anyone can join, or private, where you have to invite or approve each member. You can even choose to view everything from your rooms in your feed, instead of just in the rooms themselves.
