2011 was my year for social media. I increased my communications with the interwebz this year compared to 2010. So in order here are the websites I visited the most.
In particular it’s Gmail, Google Reader and Google+. The first two I happen to use quite a lot. Gmail is my main email communication and Google Reader houses all the news I want to follow. Recent changes to Gmail weren’t looking great in my eyes but I think Google will get this right sooner or later. Their improvements to Google Reader were great and went more in line with their new social media platform.
That brings me to Google+. For me, had lots of potential. But now I’m reconsidering my engagement there because lack thereof. Everyone seems to want to communicate in 140 characters or less.
Social media with my friends. Need I say more? If you’re not a close friend to me then I probably communicate with you on Twitter.
Great resource and community of techies. The guys at Serverfault (or Stackexchange) have a system nailed perfectly. It’s a Q&A site for those needing help with anything technical related. They also have subsites of other topics.
I use this service to communicate on my social networks, such as Twitter. They give me the ability to schedule out Tweets, organize tweets and access more than one social media account. It’s a great resource for anyone.
Projects at work kept me busy on Cisco’s website. I’ve read quite a few configuration guides and also visited their support forums. I think their site needs a lot more work to make things more efficient such as their search.
The ultimate time waster. Reddit has many sub-sites (called sub-reddits) where you can absolutely kill time and have a good laugh.
