5 Ways we consume info in Web 2.0 world

5 Mar 2009 (Thu)

[Reposting because my blog "died" this morning and was "resurrected" this afternoon without the last two posts.]

FOUND THIS INTERESTING LINK ON a Facebook friend’s profile when I was about to post a birthday greeting to her. I agree with the author, Dan York, who wrote:

The only reason I visit a web site these days is generally if either:

  1. The website turns up in a search result.
  2. I get notified that there’s something interesting there that I should look at.
  3. Random times when for some reason I decide to go there, perhaps remembering a URL for a site I wanted to check out.

 
That’s it. (Note that I do get the content of many websites through the ways I mention below, but I don’t actually go to those websites and see their page.)

As I think about it, my consumption of information online really comes down to five ways:

  1. E-mail, although I get too much of it to read it all. [Me: Exactly!]
  2. Twitter, where I see links from people or services that I follow. [Me: Now, it's the FriendFeed (or NewsFeed) on Facebook.]
  3. RSS feeds where my reader pulls it in and I quickly scan through the posts.
  4. Skype persistent group chats where I’m connected to several different groups of people on various topics.
  5. Searching for data, typically using Google.

 
The key thing is that, with the exception of search:
All the data comes to me!

    I guess that’s okay, I just don’t understand why you would want it to come to you, since most of it won’t be relevant to what you are currently working on.

    The only way I get information is through searches, because that way I know it’s going to be related to what I’m looking for right that moment. I just don’t get the point of RSS feeds since most of it will not be relevant.
