Some personal using Web 2.0 tools experience

Twitter(1)

Twitter is my new register Web 2.0 tools. I already know Twitter about many years ago. However, it is not famous in Taiwan. I register Twitter and try to use it. At first, I cannot control Twitter very well because it is not my familiar platform. When I use several times, I found some benefits in Twitter. We can compare Blog and Twitter. If blog publish large blog, thus Twitter just publishes small blog. People directly post their news and upgrade situation. Twitter characteristic is similar send traditional message to people. The system default setting is public message, thus everyone can see the posts.  Users can also subscribe other user messages that behavior is called following. Therefore, another particular feature is Twitter’s message may plus hashtags. When users send message to other users, they can use some symbols, such as # and @. In corporation, employees share their department new state. It is fast and direct than traditional paper official document. In traditional way, co-workers use e-mail to transmit events. Although e-mail still useful now, unfortunately, e-mail will be missed by staffs. Thus, Twitter is kind of useful way between co-workers transmit information.

Really Simple Syndication (RSS)

People will browse blog and website to get information. However, it is classic ways and spends many times in there. People use RSS may save their time. When staffs browse website and blog, they can subscribe RSS. Thus, RSS will send the information to subscriber’s e-mail. In RSS, the content is quite simple. There are no large capacity pictures, only news headlines or feed. If readers would like to read more clearly or whole content, they can click RSS reader provides links to see it. In user concept, they get information from website and blog is passive, but RSS reader is active supply news to users now. Company may subscribe some blog or website RSS if they interesting which get various data. Workers use RSS to collect useful information, thus they working have more efficient.
