HeyStephanie’s Social Map

I thought it would be ifun to create my very own Social Map. It’s a break out of websites, forums, online communities, and other social networking platforms that I’m a part of and have contributed to (i.e. LinkedIn, Myspace, Ning, etc.).

You can even see which online services I’ve switched from and to. For example, I used to blog on Xanga and Vox but now I’m on WordPress. I even switched from Photobucket to Flickr because it was easier for me to share photos with friends.

Much like the Brands in a Day Portrait, I’m sure I’ve left out a couple of items but it’s still fascinating to look at.

It’ll be interesting to see how this map grows in a year’s time. A few questions that come into mind are:

  • Will I be using the same social networks?
  • What new platforms will be added to my map?
  • Which will I deactivate?

How does your Social Map look like?

    Actually that’s an interesting question/project to pose to my college students. Also thanks for introducing me to a cool web tool. Works much better for my style of thinking than a list for organizing my todos!

    Hi Crissa, it is a great question to ask college students. In fact, friends of mine in college are frequently jumping from one social network to another that it’s hard to keep up at times. As for Mind42, it’s the easiest way for me to brainstorm my ideas. Here’s a review that you might like: Mind Mapping Made Easier.
