ICT4D Blog A simple pathway for open enhanced research - ICT4D Blog For the last 10 years I have been developing my own strategy for open enhanced research — you can also call it e-research, research 2.0, science 2.0, or even digital scholarship. What follows is a simplification of the pathway that can be walked since one has an idea for a research topic/project until outcomes come up and end up in conclusions… conclusions that should feed one’s next research idea. And so on. And how can the so-called tools of the web 2.0, social media contribute to open up research, to find kindred souls, to test your thoughts and ideas by sheer exposure, to bridge the ivory tower with citizens’ lives… and to be somewhat accountable to taxpayers if you are in a public institution. It is by no means an exhaustive map of all that can be done in research, the web 2.0 and social media, and the tools and services here presented are just mere suggestions or indications where to begin with. It should be taken as what it is, a simple pathway, not even a roadmap.

Social Media Marketing with Book and Writing Coach Judy Cullins by Dana Lynn Smith Dana Lynn Smith knows online networking like no other guru. She’s taught me a lot and will you too. Thanks for sharing Judy. Roger Boneno Online networking is a wonderful way to meet people who share your interests, develop relationships with peers and potential customers, and ultimately increase book sales. But there’s sometimes a fine line between letting your contacts know about your book and being overly promotional. Here are seven common mistakes that authors make in online networking, along with tips on how to avoid them: Published by Judy Cullins Never Miss a New Post! OK. My own early mistakes included not updating my original LinkedIn and Facebook profiles, and not being set up for big success with my blog articles (creating content is so important for sales later) on writing books, promotions, blogs and social media marketing. Most people want to know what do first, second, third, and the rest… Step One. That means add a WordPress blog to it. 1.

Method Draw How To Easily Download All Facebook Photos You’re Tagged In You can also create Facebook “tag” photos, which means a person’s profile is linked to the specific picture they appear in. This gives you the very useful ability to quickly view pictures of specific people – all without ever having to dig through a photo album. While it’s great having all of these pictures online, you aren’t guaranteed that they will always be available. You can easily lose access to these photos if Facebook removes an album, if the internet is unavailable, or if the friend who uploaded the photos decides to remove them. It is possible to save Facebook pictures individually, but that can be incredibly tedious if you have a large amount of photos you’d like to download. In this guide, I’ll show you how to download all of the Facebook tag photos that you and your friends are in with a great application called PhotoGrabber. Getting Started To begin, simply head over to the PhotoGrabber homepage and download the application for your operating system.
