Wordle and other Visual Tools

Wordle: Untitled

Other visual tools include Visuwords.com and VisualThesaurus.com which both allow you to conduct searches graphically rather than using text only.

Social Bookmarking

We will be using “Blinklist” as our social bookmarking site. You need to create an account and add bookmarks for some of the sites we have used in class so far. You will need to add sites to your Blinklist account as the semester continues. Add the rest of the web 2.0 class as friends to gain access to their public bookmarks.
