Social Networking is becoming more mainstream each and every day. But my concern is: how many are too many?
Each day I get friend requests in Facebook. I have chosen right now not to participate in Facebook. But I do belong to several Ning groups. We even created our own Goochland Ning group. But again, have to ask: how many are too many?
I just joined a new group sponsored by ISTE. It looks like it is off to a good start. But they had a NECC Ning group, and I belong to my affiliate Ning (VSTE), and I also enjoy membership in more established groups like Classroom 2.0.
It will be interesting to see how each of these develops. But something in the back of my head wishes that some of this stuff was more… centralized. I don’t want to have to visit 5 networks to check the pulse of what’s new and happening. I’d rather use one source.
Does that feeling seem natural to others too?
Some Saturday I’m going to have to tie up all the lose ends and provide some RSS magic to take each strand to create one big rope… maybe that’d be a good 1-hour session for others too some day.
