EASY TO SET UP and addictive to use, the beta version of IGO People deserves a serious look by anyone involved in taking the first steps of cultivating an online community.. Like Twitter, IGO People is simple. You just register and start commenting or being threads of discussion of your own. If you desire, you can get updates sent to your email account every day by IGO People. It's easier to find people who might fit into your style because you can search on IGO people, discovering individuals (the I in the name), groups (G for groups) and organisations (you can spell it with a z but the big O is for proper organisations). I work with several planning groups concerned with bringing people closer to gainful employment. Linking the unemployed to like-minded colleagues and businesses just got simpler with IGOpeople.com and only by checking out the site yourself can you see what I mean. My immediate circle of friends is very heavily populated from Ireland but that's the point--to connect with local by thinking globally. As the year unfolds, I'll write about how we're leveraging IGOpeople to increase college enrollments, to assist in a major jobs initiative and to bring quality creative multimedia work to the public.
Search for "goldbach" on IGOpeople and see what I've been doing there. The information updates for me as an RSS feed. Excellent!
