My original plan was to post my Wikipedia addition as my sixth practicum post but I have decided to save it for last as I continue learning new things about my practicum social network sites everyday. I have already explained the specific purposes that I use LinkedIn, Google + and MySpace for and I have dedicated at least one blog post to each of them. I have also made it clear that out of the three I use LinkedIn the most.
With that being said I found an awesome iPhone app for LinkedIn! This app is so useful especially when I am on the go. The home screen of the app is divided into four different sections, one consists of updates, another is for my personal profile, one is my notifications inbox, and the last one is all of my groups. I can easily access all of these different sections with my phone and I can accept new connections as well as read new messages within seconds wherever I am. I previously used this app to update my profile a few days ago and it was easier to use on my phone than on an actual computer.
Other than following big groups and companies for updates I have also requested permission to join specific groups. I have been accepted to a bunch and my favorite one that I have gained access to so far is BuckyNetworking. All of these groups provide constant updates and email messages to inform members of latest news and professional opportunities and the site makes it easy to stay involved without making much effort.
As for my other two social network sites not much has changed that is out of the ordinary. I have continued to use MySpace for music, news and videos, and I continue to use Google+ similarly to Facebook to form social connections, read status updates and chat with friends through Gmail. My next and final practicum post will be to Wikipedia and hopefully I will be able to add something new that involves aspects of all three of my chosen social network sites!
