This is my third blog entry about how i use networks.
My network consists basically out of my friends. We meet and share information with different digital tools. Mainly we use Facebook, Skype or Whatsapp. Normally I am just a “consumer” and observer of informations and content in the internet and not a creator. Till now I do not share my knowledge in forums or other community platforms. Also I am very niggardly with comments under youtube videos or blog entries. I do not really know why I do not like to write comments, but probably it is because I like to stay hidden in internet. However I know this is not possible, but I do not like to share my thoughts in the public space. It is very infrequent that I write a comment. I only write comments, if I think that a person writes very deceptive and false content. For example in political or music issues.
Like I mentioned, I like to read in forums in which topics I am interested in. These forums have a huge value for me, because I can read and learn from people, which are experts in their issue or just share their experience. In addition forums offer the possibility to get informations to a special topic from strangers. Normally I share a lot of knowledge with my real friends. But the internet makes the exchange of information with strangers possible in a easy way.
Another value cyber platform for me are blogs. There you have the possibility also to read personal experience and knowledge about an issue where you are interested. Often blogs are very personal written and also funny to read. Besides that you have the chance to get information as one of the first persons.
I really enjoy reading in blogs and forums, because you get the information you are interested in.
But it needs some time to get a good “list” of blogs. When you have such a list it is easy to dig more blogs with good and fresh content. I am a little lazy to read other blogs, so I normally stay at my four, five “home” blogs.
In conclusion the most value platforms for me are blogs and forums. Also I will start to increase the circle of my blogs, which are more design based. Furthermore I would like to try more to be more a creator and share my knowledge in forums and blogs. It already started with this blog!
Whish you a nice and enjoyable evening!
