Social Networking & The Blogosphere

Twitter Updates

Social Networking, Web 2.0, interactive websites & New Media. What does it all mean?

Well in simple terms it’s about getting back to the roots of what the WWW was intended for - giving the power of contribution back to the people.

You can leave your mark on the internet these days yourself. You don’t need to be on some A-list, or go through some expensive Ad Agency. You can set up your own online Blog in 5 minutes and start telling people what you think.

And people will read it too!

Tap into the social networking scene by adding some Web 2.0 components to your site.

Chat rooms, discussion boards, forums, blogging and other interactive tools can engage your customers and help build a community around your business.

We designed and developed Perth’s leading Social Networking site Loconut from the ground up.

There’s more to a website than just providing an online business card - your customers will expect all the latest tools and gadgets from being able to participate in discussions with your business and watching vidoes and blogging.

What is Social Networking?

It’s all about interacting with other people - instead of just a static website.

Social Networking websites function like an online community of internet users. Depending on the website in question, many of these online community members share a common interest such as hobbies, religion, or politics. Once you are granted access to a social networking website you can begin to socialise with the other users and members. This socialisation may include reading the profile pages of other members and possibly even contacting them.

This is what Web 2.0 is all about - it’s about allowing people to intereact with each other instead of just having to read a web page. It’s like comparing a book to a computer game - websites can be a one-way message or they can be designed in ways to allow the reader’s to particicpate - which would you prefer?

Facebook, My Space, Bebo and of course WA’s very own Loconut - are all social networking sites. They create online communities and engage the users. This allows business and advertisers to tap into a very select and exciting group of people.

You may not want your own Loconut website - but we can help you pull in certain elements of social networking, such as blogging, forums and video sharing into your website.
