I’ve fallen of the blogging wagon and realized that it’s been almost a month since my last post! I hope to be better going forward (no promises), but ensuring that I run a lean, mean money-making machine can be quite challenging…I guess I should post about those challenges . In any case, I did have some thoughts today and wanted to throw them out to see what others think…
Recently, there has been lots of talk about microblogging (Twitter), and microformats. In a Mashable post yesterday about Twemes (yeah, we got the “Mashable Bump” care of David Gratton – thanks, David!!), Kristen Nicole mentioned “configuring your mini-network”. This got me thinking about the mini- and micro-social networks we create daily and quickly. I’m currently following Socon08 on Twemes (unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to GA) and am pleased to see how people are creating new micro-networks after following a stream of microblogs about common or shared interests/views at a specific event. Very cool!
I’m heading to SXSW in a month and am really looking forward to meeting a slew of new people and creating some instantaneous mini- and micro-networks. If you’re gonna be there, let me know and let’s connect IRL!
I’m curious, what social networking tools do you use to dynamically create and build your mini- and micro social networks?
