Social media is a very powerful construct. When you go on to Twitter, for example, you can construct any 'virtual world' that you fancy, and you can live in that world for as little or as long as you want. And you find that in that particular world that you construct, there are many other players already playing in that world, some heavily there, whilst there are others, also important, who drop in occasionally, and have their little say, or keep an eye on what you are up to, and add value at key moments.
On BloggerMe, we are trying to construct a new world. We have looked at the geographic profile of Australia, and we have realised that regional development has taken place based on the flow of water, which is necessary for human life and economic development. The political profile has ignored this for a couple of centuries and given us States that are dysfunctional and are hurting proper governance.
So we have found that we can use Twitter to try out our ideas, and see if they are meaningful, or just a nicety, but not worthy of further effort.
We have taken a look at Twitter and we find important people there, giving us feeds, that help us understand what it is like to live in regional Australia. So we have found that if you capture the Twitter feed, and post it into the new State, and then you go into that State and click on each of those feeds, you can actually get an idea of what is going on in that State, what it is like to live there, and how it differs from the other States.
Take a look at a couple of the States from this point of view, and you will be amazed at how quickly the social profile is established by reference to social media constructs. We think that it proves that we actually have a point here, worthy of further serious consideration
