“WhosTalkin?” Is An Intriguing Application

| 1 Comment

WhosTalkin? is a brand new web tool that’s a “social media search tool.” In other words, it specifically searches a ton of different sources like Twitter, Ning, Technorati, etc. to discover “conversations” that are going on about your topic of interest.

In my case, think it’ll be useful for professional development and research. For example, I typed in the name “Stephen Krashen” (the second language learning writer, practitioner, and theorist) and found many different results than what I found on Google (or maybe Google would have the same listings, buy way back in their results).

  1. Larry,

    This is a fantastic resource! I love how recently, the web is full of invention lending us the power to get the information we want , when we want and exactly as we want it…. This is super handy as you mentioned for those involved with research but also great for just regular professional development and discovery.

    Also interesting to look up you own name! Try it, you’ll be amazed what it captures….
