First, what is Tumblr? Cynthia describes it as a more visual Blogger. Check it out. Think visual. Think quick.

describe my daily commute in Boulder riding my single speed on my blog. Today’s post is written by Jennifer Roberts. I was riding up one of the canyon roads in Boulder, Colorado a few weekends ago. wanted to use the ride to work out how to write an article linking my online social behavior with the concept of a social consumer. But my high-end Sella Italia Lady saddle was distracting me; it was uncomfortable. refocused and thought about my online behavior and how narrowing perspective to include only my social media behavior provided an incomplete view of me as a social consumer.

When you meet someone in person you form a deeper relationship with them than thousands of online interactions. We’re increasingly seeing a hierarchy of contact. At the lowest levels members talk via contributing content which others read. It’s slow, thoughtful and not interactive. At the higher levels are immediate response, real-time communication and stronger context (i.e. talking by IM is stronger than chat-rooms – you had to add that person to your instant messenger).
