New Social Content Discovery Platform: Ping.it

New Social Content Discovery Platform: Ping.it | New media and Education | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: I received an invitation some hours ago to join into closed beta test of Ping.it (formerly StormDriver).

It is a social content discovery platform that allows people to ping where they are in the Web right now, locate others in real time, and join them on any page.

 

From About Page:

"Ping.it offers a new way to discover interesting content in a social setting. Instead of leaving updates on social networks, just like notes on a fridge, simply share the experience of discovering content in real time, together. Don’t wait for people to tell you what they’re doing. Instead, take a look at Ping.it and join them on the spot!

 

With Ping.it you can see what pages others are visiting right now. You can also get pinged about the good stuff they find or ping your own discoveries.

 

Ping.it is all about the real-time aspect of the Web. Being aware of where your friends are online is one thing. Another is that you can instantly know what’s hot. In Ping.it you can see how many other users are interacting with a page, and if things get interesting you can get notified and join in the fun!

 

Every ping can be send to a specific topic – and all the people who follow it. This way you will immediately know if a new interesting page was pinged to any topic you follow. You can create your own topics, invite contributors, and together create useful scrapbooks of content. All topics have their own unique URL’s, so that you can share your best collaborations with the outside world.

 

We use cloud-enhanced browsing in order to let you enjoy your favorite content from within Ping.it. Instead of searching for stuff outside and then reporting on your findings through social networks..."

Muscat, Oct 2 (ONA) --- The deliberations of the 2-day 4th Arab Translation Conference titled "Language and Translation in the IT and Communications Age" concluded today at Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque.

The conference included a number of themes, such as IT and communications and language and translation, electronic publishing and the future of paper book, encyclopedias and dictionaries in the IT age, machine translation in the Arab experiences and translation economy and industry.

Knowledge mobilisation is a social process: Social media can support indivduals and organisations in research dissemination | Impact of Social Sciences

Already an active user of social media, David Phipps has recently been thinking about its potential as an academic tool. He concludes that knowledge mobilisation is continuing to evolve and that social media could grow into a powerful tool for dissemination, connect researchers with a common interest and support communities that share academic aims.

"I am very much aware that for a new user your average piece of IWB software has a lot of buttons and tools that can be quite confusing. To keep the learning curve simple, it's best to focus on the five basic tools and then, once you're happy with creating resources with those, you can start using some of the other tools..."
