Here’s another quick one page guide, this about about Google Docs. If you can’t see the embedded version below, you can head to the Kind of Digital site and download a PDF.

What is blogging?
Haven’t published one of these in a while, so here’s a quick guide about blogging. PDF over on the Kind of Digital site if you can’t see the embed below.
What is Facebook?
Here’s the latest of our mini-guides to social technology, where we have had a go at explaining what Facebook is all about.
It’s embedded below, but if you can’t see it, you can visit the Kind of Digital site and download the PDF.
What is RSS?
Yup, they’re still coming. This one tries to explain the mystery that is RSS.
Enjoy! If you can’t see it embedded below, you can download the PDF version from the Kind of Digital website.
What is Flickr?
Next up in the series of introductory guides to social technology is this one about Flickr.
Embedded below, or as usual, there’s a PDF to download from this page if you need it.
What is LinkedIn?
Here’s another of my short What is… guides – this time it’s about LinkedIn.
Embedded below, and as usual, if you can’t see it, you can get the PDF from the Kind of Digital site.
What is Twitter?
There was a bit of discussion on Twitter this evening about explaining Twitter to the uninitiated.
(If this sounds a bit navel-gazingy, that’s because it probably is. Hang around in any online space for long enough and you soon end up in meta-conversations of this type.)
Emma Maier of the Local Government Chronicle is organising some collectively written guidance on a Google Doc – here’s the link and I recommend you get stuck in!
Of course, a longer guide is the one I wrote for Learning Pool a couple of years ago, and which is soon to be republished in an updated form.
In the meantime though, I thought I’d knock together a quick single page effort, which ought to be handy for the absolute beginner.
I’ve embedded it below, but if you can’t see it, go to the ‘Useful Stuff’ page on the Kind of Digital site and you can download a PDF.
I’ll be doing some more of these – LinkedIn, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube and blogging are all bound to feature. Would these be useful? Any other topics spring to mind?
Let me know!
