Since I started using Facebook regularly, the most interesting things I’ve found are:
- blog posts written by others, that lead me to find out more about what’s happening in the internet area (OK, I’m failing to avoid saying Web 2.0)
- bits in people status feeds that make me think “I wonder what that is?”
Some of the things I’ve found recently (yes, I know they’re all probably old hat)
Twitter – letting folk know your presence/activity
Jaiku – another presence/group/blogging monitoring thing, with the ability to add “channels”
Spinvox – does voice to text stuff, but lets you update Facebook/twitter/Jaiku by phone, which is fun
Tumblr – which allows you to rapidly add links, quotes, text, photos to a stream – and you can add channels, too. I use it for grabbing links, which I RSS to my blog
Tabblo – a photo/text/story/printing site – lets you *easily* bring photos in from Flickr and fairly easily from Picasa; let’s you produce interesting photo displays that you can print as PDF; locally; for free …
Picknik – which lets you edit *online* phots on your PC, Picasa, Facebook, Flickr. Very nice.
I think I’ll probably edit this as I recall/use more bits ‘n bobs.
