Digital Habitats

One of the great things about the sustained connections we make through CPsquare is that when you bump into people in other settings there’s such a strong connection. There are common interests, common vocabulary, and an extraordinary willingness to share insights. Last week during the Yi-Tan Tech Call 274: on Digital Habitats , I noticed LaDonna Coy tweeting about it.

You and your friends and your monkey minds

Ken Carroll

You have a monkey mind and so does your sister. And your boss. And your neighbor. All of you. Monkey minds. Average monkeys. But don’t feel bad. You can’t help it. It’s human nature. Our minds naturally flit from one thing to another, often for no apparent reason.

How to add Friends to Groups or Lists or Filters in Facebook

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

Before the new Facebook interface was fully launched, I mentioned that it would be a good idea to plan some groups for you to filter your friends into.

So, I was trying to figure out how to put my friends into different groups (filter them) in Facebook and found it a bit tricky so thought I’d share it here: EASIEST- WHEN ADDING AS A Facebook FRIEND.

150 of my closest friends

Endless Knots

And for the record, the title of this post is all wrong: it's not about your closest friends, which, according to other theories, can't number more than 25. Forget friends.

US Friends and Readers - VOTE!

Nancy White

So for all my US friends and readers, get out and VOTE! There is no question in my mind that one of the central forms of participation we have as US citizens is to vote. I have my choice and I respect yours. But VOTE. From a work perspective, it is wonderful to see how creatively people are using social media to encourage participation and do election observing. As someone who works internationally, election observers are an important role. Yet we’ve never had them in the US.
