My goal today was to download TweetDeck, play around with it and see how it works. Last night, I watched a comprehensive tutorial on youtube about TweetDeck. I was not sure I understood the utility of this application, but since everyone was talking about it, thought I should give it a try! Well, download complete, signed up for twitter and facebook. After navigating around a bit I ended up on a site that has the top 12 Web 2.0 applications according to four people I don’t know. I navigated this page as well. And while all these applications seem really cool I have no idea what they are for let alone how to use it. I have come to one conclusion: I should have taken Alec’s Web 2.0 class that I keep hearing and reading about! Even as I type this, my computer keeps chirping at me and popups are occurring! Again, I feel like my students lost in a lesson (one that I am sure is so easy to master)! I am going to keep going with this but would love (again) some explanations about TweetDeck and what I should be using it for. And, if you know anything about Web 2.0 and all that, let me know too!
