I am doing the work at home.  It is distance learning.  The college is local.

  Hello Eleanor, sorry i should have asked this earlier, but here we go:

   

  What subjects are you studying, and where are doing the work, at home or in a 
college?,

    Well that is a turn around from when I last asked a question reguarding 
these social networking sights. It seems there is one rool for one and then 
another for me.

      Elenar,

       

      The point is though it can be discussed on here.  You're already on here 
and w'ere not exactly a high traffic list as a whole.

       

      So nobody's stopping you or anyone else from asking Twitter, Face Book, 
Linked In, virtually any technology question on here.  If it's VI access tech 
related as in you're Blind/Partially Sighted, using AT to access something then 
we'll give it a crack.  

       

      As I've said in my opinion there does come a time for another email list. 
 EG for a Screen Reader or take the Blind Sys Admin list for example.  

       

      Barry.

      I think chris has a point. As yet I have not come to terms with twitter 
or facebook but am certainly interested in doing so after my exams at the end 
of October.  Then I hope to concedntrate on getting to know these well in 
November.

        Barry, 

         

        I'm inclined to agree! 

         

        Now having said that for folk who may require answers about Twitter 
should then this list be the way to go? 

         

        Haven't joined the Twitter community as yet but when I do I would like 
to be able to ask possible questions on this list or if Chris goes ahead, on 
his. 

         

        There is a bit of info out there anyway on the Twitter matter for us! 

         

        The occasional question about Twitter I would imagine I'd be asking. 

         

        Best, 

         

        Tony Sweeney

          Honestly, I think there's no need to create a list for such specific 
narrow
          subjects. Not in the home-end-user blindness community.  It's too 
small of a
          market and these general access technology lists aren't' exactly over 
ran
          with these topics. The list volume isn't' back breaking.  I've always 
found
          our UK lists on Tech quite light, compared to some of the lists state 
side.


          Think about it this way what would people talk about if they moved to 
a list
          for each Social Network, then each program, then each anti-virus, 
then each
          version of that anti-virus etc.  What is it they say, "variety is the 
spice
          of life" in conversation as well as other things.<smile>

          Furthermore, most people that ask a  handful of social networking 
questions
          on say BCAB or Access-Uk and get on the social network.  Will then, 
start
          using that social network to ask questions.  Not only about the social
          network but other things as well.  It's one of the points of being on 
a
          social network.  Having a group of people who you can communicate 
with.
          It's more customised for your way of thinking and is a resource where 
you
          and others can share information as well as personal aspects of life.

          Compartamentalisation is an effective tool but not used this way.  I 
think
          your motives are decent but there's watering down in too many lists.  

          So in a nut shell, I don't believe we're over run with discussions on
          twitter here.  Certainly not to the point where another list needs to 
be
          created to handle all this traffic.  

          Regards,
          Barry.
