By: karyfeick karyfeick Mon, 31 Jan 2011 05:38:12 +0000 [...] I am a double major, with my other interest in Broadcast and Cinema Arts. (Visit the link for a short video about the program featuring the well-known and widely respected Hollywood Director and Producer, Christopher Coppola.) Adjunct professor at Madonna University, Christopher Coppola has recently worked with film production students via Skype. Without the use of Skype as a tool for communication, only a phone call could take the place of the video-chat students had with Coppola last week. Skype allowed students and Coppola to meet and pitch ideas for this year’s film. (Every year the Capstone in Film Production class makes a film, and I am excited to be in the class this year.) As Broadcast and Cinema Arts students, we use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Blogger, Blackboard, Instant Messaging, Video Chat programs, and basic e-mail, such as Google Mail to update the world on what we are doing as well as publish our own work. Without all of these social media sites, our work would go unnoticed. It is not a coincidence that our professor from last weekend, Shannon Paul, majored in journalism and writes about Social Media for a living. We discussed the importance of Social Media and how it can truly bring you out of your ‘offline shell’, into the online world, and even further into a career, especially a dream job that can happen right out of college. We talked about all of the Social Media sites listed above as well as WordPress because it’s a more professional blogging platform than Blogger. [...]

By: Sueblimely Sueblimely Sun, 09 Dec 2007 20:26:21 +0000 I am glad I left blogger when I did although now if I log in to comment on blogger with my gmail address people get diverted to my old blog.

This move by Blogger really annoys me – it is harming those using Blogger by putting people off making comments and those on other platforms too. How can you create relationships with other bloggers if you do not know where to find them.

Blogger are trialling the use of OpenID for logging in to make comments but this involves some fiddling for non blogger users to set up their blogs so that a link to their blog is created.

I have been posted some suggestions on my blog on how to get round the problem. The best solution of course is for Blogger to listen to us and reverse the change.

By: Lifecruiser Lifecruiser Thu, 06 Dec 2007 20:53:46 +0000 Of course we can, but the thing is: it’s not a smooth solution.

We bloggers are a lazy bunch :lol: We don’t want to have to copy and paste all the time, since the hyperlink code is much longer to write than the actual link… Especially when you want to point them to one of your posts, not only to the blog. I do that pretty often myself, when I have an old post that relates to their post.

We don’t want the technique to take one step backwards instead of developing to something real smooth that makes everybody happy :-)

I’m sure we could go on for ever with this discussion, since we’re on opposite sides…. *giggles*

By: Torrey Pines Torrey Pines Thu, 06 Dec 2007 20:37:55 +0000 :mrgreen: Sorry, but with all due respect, I have to disagree again. If someone wants to leave a url, blogger allows hyperlink tags within the post, so you can’t accuse them of blocking url’s. They can add names using the anonymous, or nickname options, instead of blogger user. So you can’t accuse them of forcing people to sign up with blogger. The only reason left is that commenters want to include specific title text with url’s. Can’t blame them for trying to stop that, since that affects their search rankings…
