Today we began watching “Visitors and Residents” of Dave Owhite, and then we talked about it more with Autumn Caines, Bonnie Stewart and Sundi Richard.
They use concepts of visitors and residents to differenciate someone who use internet as information source or as social network (communication and information sharing).
Bonnie explained that to break the ice online, sharing photos and talking about ourselves helps to make frienships or find common interests. Also she said that online presence does not mean content. People remember for a long time what we make them feel and the presence that we had; so it is important to know how to develop online presense, by putting things, contributing, and not just being a visitor (make people know that you are there).
Also they helped us to make our own diagrams, and I consider myself a visitor.
