Going social with the SD Times Readers group on Facebook

Got Facebook? If so, join our new social group, SD Times Readers. We’d love to have you!

Social networking is an interesting phenomenon. Some social networks that I belong to are super useful. Some are completely worthless. Some work great using low-tech solutions like e-mail lists. Others are thriving thanks to the latest technology. We’re in a period that combines extreme experimentation with high-speed evolution. It’s fascinating to watch, but even better to participate in. Social networking is one sport that doesn’t play well from the sidelines.

We’re dipping our toes into the water with our Facebook group. What’s it going to look like a month from now, or a year from now? I have no idea. We might have 100 members. We might have 1,000 members. We might have 100,000 members, bringing together subscribers to SD Times and its newsletters, as well as everyone who visits SDTimes.com. There’s no way to predict.

What’s going to happen in the SD Times Readers group? Again, it’s hard to know. We might have technical discussions about multithreaded development. We might have in-depth discussions about the best Java application server, or the best .NET grid control. We might have software development managers sharing their family photos. With your help, we’ll have all the above.

So, what are you waiting for? Come join the SD Times Readers group and take part in the fascinating social networking revolution.
