Social Networking Updates
I'm not too sure how Twitter really fits in the professional world. It seems like it is more for fun. In Connect! (Zelenka, 2008, p. 166) homophily is described. I totally agree with this concept because if we weren't all in the same class or cluster, I don't know that I would be following everyone since we probably don't have the same interests.
Webifying your schedule sounds like a great idea being that everyone is busy and you need to find a time that fits everyone's schedule. I don't know that I like the whole idea of my schedule being out there for everyone to see as suggested (Zelenka, 2008, p.154). If I use multiple calendars: one for work, one for school, one for personal, etc. I think that I would get more confused if all of my meetings and due dates were in different spots. This could cause me to miss something important or double schedule something if I didn't check all of my calendar time slots. Also by putting all of that information out there could be putting you at risk for stalking, harassment, etc (UMN guide). This means that you need to fully understand how to use the privacy settings on each individual site.
There are a lot of options out there for connecting with others that I was not aware that they existed. Some techniques might work best for one person and not another, so you need to learn what the most effective way to get a hold of each person on your team is.
All in all, there is A LOT to learn in the web working environment. Each program has it's benefits and it's downfalls, you just need to figure out which works best for you.
