Photography has become digitised and computerised so many have been using photo sharing websites like Flickr which is immensely popular. Creating an account to flickr is so easy and free. I just created my account as I’m paranoid to lose some of my photos. As I’ve learned Flicker is the best way to store, sort, search, tag photos online. I’m starting to play around in my Flicker account so I could organise and backup my photos better and share it as well to my friends and families. However it is limited in some ways if I want to click, flick, share and keep mass photos I need to upgrade to pro and pay $24.95/year. It’s not too bad.
I’m getting the hang of my twit twit account and I like my background image https://twitter.com/powerbookhub. For me I guess twitter is perhaps the simplest media tool of them all that’s the reason why it’s taking the online world by storm. I should say I could tweet now less than 140 characters which is less than my lovebirds tweets and squacks.
I took a photo of this little creature while he’s busy building his web. This spider has taught me a few lessons in life. They build webs by working non-stop and diligently until they created their own masterpiece- its a nature work of art. If their web is destroyed they start spinning again and again. This is also the same when we want to build our wonderful web in our life which is our dreams. We have to work with perseverance and dont’ make any challenges and trials hold us back. Keep moving forward until our dreams becomes a reality.
I’d like to share the old silent movie version of Alice in Wonderland from 1903. Have a look on this video sharing site. This is quite amusing.
Finally, last Friday I received my library card from State Library of NSW after 2 weeks of waiting. I was so delighted and with excitement I went off on rainy Sunday afternoon. The massive library was so impressive. My visit will help me complete my Assessment 1 as I collected much of their brochures as reference for the project. Here are some of my photos to share.
Facebook has already dominated our lives for the past several years now. Most of us log in everyday and spend 30 mins to more than hours. This social network stay us connected with friends and families. This is also a tool to enable to bond and bridge people. Thanks to Mark Zuckerberg!
From our past lesson last 18th Feb 2013 Bonnie, discussed that this social network site also benefit the libraries and us. Library can connect with the community online and also interact with them. It is an easy access for the community to know the upcoming library-related events and activities, important library news update and links to interesting and useful information about the libraries.
I pride myself for creating a blog for the first time. I’m definitely sure on this subject I will learn more interesting things about social media tools.
