Online Social Network
  • Mark Kingdon’s Recommendations:
    • 1. “Respect the community. These are clubs where you aren’t necessarily welcome, says the CEO of marketing agency, Organic. So learn the unwritten rules: Don’t intrude on conversations in a way that irritates members, don’t divert users to other sites, and don’t disguise yourself.”

“The power of TheirSpace”, Brian Niles, An E-mail Minute

  • Mark Kingdon’s Recommendations:
    • 2. “Engage people, don’t advertise. Forget banner ads, says Kingdon. Instead, connect with people by offering advice about college search, admissions hurdles and financial aid issues. Showcase your institution by offering something of value to the community.”

“The power of TheirSpace”, Brian Niles, An E-mail Minute

  • Mark Kingdon’s Recommendations:
    • 3. “Get ready for a wild ride. Expect irreverent and profane content. And expect to get “flamed” — a searing message in response to your content or institution. Think carefully before posting a rebuttal, explanation or even apology, advises Kingdon, since that can further inflame the debate.”

“The power of TheirSpace”, Brian Niles, An E-mail Minute

  • “A wiki is a type of website that allows users to easily add, remove, or otherwise edit all content, very quickly and easily, sometimes without the need for registration. This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for collaborative writing. The term wiki is a shortened form of wiki wiki which is from the native language of Hawaii (Hawaiian), where it is commonly used as an adjective to denote something "quick" or "fast" (Hawaiian dictionary).”From Wikipedia, the free
