As Twitter becomes used in the classroom more and more, why not add your twitter feed to your faculty website?
People.ua.edu has a couple of options. You can use the Social media icons which allows your visitors to begin following you on Twitter… or… you can add a feed of all your tweets directly on your site. Using the feed is a great way to stir up interest and, hopefully, gain more followers.
If you are not aware of Flickr, now is a great time to check it out. Flickr gives you one free terabyte of space! Share photos in full resolution. Flickr is nothing more than a place to share and store photos. I've used it in the past, but not regularly. I typically resort to storing photos on a flash drive, which is not always convenient when I want to show them to someone. With one terabyte of space, it's a no brainer! I'm going to start using Flickr a lot!
If you don't have an account, set it up at www.flickr.com. While you are there, check out their Commons area. It's a really nice public photo collection.
