Fresno Pacific Univ. Kin 710 Week 6 #18


I believe I have got my personal GOOGLE Site up and running.  It took me longer than I had expected and was much more involved then I prefer when working with a website, but none GOOGLE SITES it is a beneficial resource.  I have some more modifications to make and some things I want to add but for now I'm pleased.

Fresno Pacific Univ. Kin 710 Week 6 #17


Just got through signing up and exploring PLAXO and LINKEDIN.  Both sites were very easy to navigate and understand.  Comparing and contrasting the three of them I personally like Facebook.  Facebook is much more personal and social compared to linkedin and plaxo.  Thats just my personal feelings toward social networking sites.  On the business side of things both plaxo and linkedin are great sites.  The visual layout of plaxo was alittle more appealing but linkedin seemed to have more visible options and information displayed on the page.  Both of the sites were easy to upload my contacts. I do like how plaxo managed my cotacts for me as apposed to linkedin.  Other than that the seem to be very simular in purpose and options, a little more time to play with them and I will probably pick my favorite between the two.

Fresno Pacific Univ. Kin 710 Week 5 #15

Just got through using  Pretty neat website, it had some cool options, kind of minimal but cool none the less.  Other websites had some more involved options and effects all of which took a little more time and effort.  The picture I choose was of my favorite dog, a bulldog.  The picture was pretty neat to begin with I just played with it and inhanced it.
