Laying Tracks on the Web

June 27, 2013

Today’s incredible world of social media allows us to make a bigger impact than ever before, both in our home country and around the world. Now that the Forcing Change webpage is being revamped (if you haven’t checked out the more efficient membership section of the website, do so today!), we have taken the time to post a list of other locations where we leave a “digital footprint.”

Yes, that’s “right here!” This WordPress blog is where I post monthly activity updates, quotes, short articles, videos of interest, and occasional Forcing Change essays – often referencing and referring to the primary Forcing Change homepage. You can subscribe to the blog for free and “follow” what I post, add comments, and “like” features.

I just started to “twitter,” so if you have a twitter account and would like to read my regular “tweets,” click and follow!

Forcing Change has had a Facebook page for some time, and currently has over 860 followers. If you want to see what’s being posted, “find us on Facebook.”

The Forcing Change YouTube page has a handful of videos on-line at this time, but more are slated to be uploaded – including conference presentations, radio talk shows, and other items of interest. Click on the YouTube link and check out what’s on the Forcing Change channel.

LibraryThing.com is a fantastic cloud-based library cataloging system that has a social network component built into it. At the present, I have about 7500 books logged into the system, and as my catalog is open to the public, you can virtually see what’s in my library – the research heartbeat that drives Forcing Change. Already a few researchers have checked out my holdings, which are not available for loan, but can be used as references for research aid. Moreover, if you have a LibraryThing account, you too can “friend” myself as a “member connection” and thus follow recent catalog postings; “What’s on your bookshelf?”

I must confess that I haven’t used ShoutLife much in the last year, but that will change soon! For those unfamiliar with it, ShoutLife is a social media platform specifically designed for Christian artists and authors. In it, you can view profiles, check out music and other artistic selections, and read internal blog postings. If you’re a ShoutLife user, check out my profile and make a connection!

LinkedIn is a social platform used to connect professionals. Here, you can see my personal profile, and check out “skills and expertise.” If you’re on LinkedIn, take a few minutes to add me to your network.

And of course there’s Forcing Change! Although not a “social media” site, it is the primary platform for my research and writing – and it’s where you can download the latest edition of the Forcing Change journal, read other FC reports, and listen to archived audio feeds from radio talk shows and presentations that I’ve been a part of.

So I invite you to come and explore the larger digital footprint of FC!

Note: Please be aware that, while I try as often as possible to respond to questions and comments in the above social network sites, I realistically can’t do it all. There’s simply not enough time or energy to keep up with every email or comment. Nevertheless, check out what’s happening on these many sites, and use the research tools and data to help you better understand your world.
