This is an example of CMC language.

 

It's very informal talk, we were talking about what time we would be going to the basketball game. This is really only a small snippit of the Facebook chat as I can't post the thing as it's private. We also talked about other things, since it's basically a conversation using CMC.

 

In the process of the conversation we also misspelled words purposely just because it's a way in which we've been conditioned to write it online (Herring). As well we also made words so like wanna (Want to) and iight (alright).

Miami Dolphins chat Nov. 28, 2011

Miami Dolphins chat Nov. 28, 2011 | Andrew's CMC portfolio | Scoop.it

This is an example of Formal CMC.

 

The entirety of the Q&A was scheduled at a certain time till a certain time. Their is also a person who is specifically answering the questions as scheduled. He uses proper language and takes time to write well though out responses.

 

The question and participants however aren't planned, so that's a bit informal but the person who is answering the questions could choose which questions he would like so that's more formal.

LinkedIn

This is an example of networking.

 

I use LinkedIn as a networking tool, as well as connecting to people I know which I then can meet other people from. I am also connected to people I really don't personally know or have worked with. Currently I'm connected to a sports agent that I've communicated with a few times that is from the capital region, I'm also connected to the assistant dean of the College of Computing and Information although I've barely talked to her.

 

And with those people that I actually know and I have worked with, they are my network. I have on reccomendation from a friend I worked with on a political campaign with and I've reccomended others for their work. So if a person networks with another person they'll see that they've been reccomended and it'll make them look more respected.

Andrew K. Butler

This is an example of Web 2.0. My website allows for two types of communication by allowing comments on the blog posts I make and by having a contact form.

 

The site also has aspects of Web 1.0 by giving information about myself, it gives a link to my portfolio and also my resume is on it. So it's all just giving information to people.

Twitter

This is an example 0f identity development.

 

At first on Twitter, I really had no idea what I was doing. I would write a few things about Siena basketball or the Dolphins but never really got into it. I then found other people who were talking about Miami sports, the first was @TedHill and the other was @SuperIgor. 

 

I was talking about sports more, however I was trying to build credibility with them (Ellison et. al). I would use @ replies and RT's to build my identity and eventually after that I started finding other people that liked the things I did on Twitter and I started create my own unique identity. Right now that is tweeting about College Basketball and Miami sports.

 

The College Basketball was early in my development as I would post scores from the Siena game, which nobody else did. As well I would occasionally tweet to the @midmajority. But then some Siena people came in like @EdLassX which I could discuss about UAlbany and Siena college basketball.

This is an example of Web 1.0.

 

It's a basic text site with some links out do things I did for the class. It gives information about me and then gives links to labs I did for the class, so it doesn't offer much in communicating two ways. There's no way to communicate with me so it's only telling people about myself. It conveys that I'm a student at UAlbany and I like the Miami Dolphins.

 

Note: I was told that these were the three modes that were referred to, I read the article about the modes and didn't really see 3 that applied to this. So I went with what others were telling me, hopefully this is right.

Off Topic Thread XIII - ProSportsDaily.com

Off Topic Thread XIII - ProSportsDaily.com | Andrew's CMC portfolio | Scoop.it

This is an example of informal CMC.

 

We can just come into the thread and post about whatever we want, be it sports, current news, politics or just funny things in our lives. We once even taught a guy how to use correct grammar in one of these threads.

 

Nothing is planned, participants can be random from time to time and we don't always use proper language, we use CMC language from time to time. 

 

The article gives an example of a discussion board as a formal communication however this thread in the forum is a very different type of CMC.

Ryan Gregoire for Malta Town Council | Andrew's CMC portfolio | Scoop.it

This is an example of Web 3.o.

 

The website I create incorporates elements of Web 2.0 and Web 1.0 by giving information and being interactive by allowing users to comment on issues and/or email the candidate himself.

 

However when visiting the site on a mobile device it is completely different. The site has been optimized so that when you visit the site on a mobile device it makes it easier to read and there's less images so you don't waste too much bandwidth.

Orientation Research - Google Documents

This is an example of filtering/curating.

 

I had to research on what other universities were doing on the web for their orientations. I used google searches, twitter searches, facebook searches.

 

For Google I searched different terms that were involved with Universities and Orientation. For Twitter I did search hashtags like #orientation or #fyp, there was another I forgot but it was helpful as well. For Facebook I would search for certain unviersities and see if they did anything unique during orientation.

 

I then sorted out the information and curated it into one document.

What do you think is the best Video Game series of all-time?

What do you think is the best Video Game series of all-time? | Andrew's CMC portfolio | Scoop.it

This is an example of Community Building. This was one of the first community type blog posts we had on the Gaming blog, and we tried to reach out to people through old games and have them vote and comment on it. We're trying to create a blog post that would link people to a common interest, which is video games from the past and present.

 

We created social capital by allowing people to discuss in the comments and talk about their experiences in the game (Ellison, Steinfield &Lampe). Because of the comments we still have some lasting commenters that still read our blog posts and comment on our stories.
