Context is a 4 letter word…

Actually it’s a seven letter word… but maybe the context was lost in the title.  Simply put. We need more context in social media conversations. Specifically in Twitter but certainly not immune to all other social networks, context can elude us quite easily.  Either we abuse it, we don’t use it, we misuse it, or we lose it. Alot!


Just as the earth revolves around the sun and rotates on it’s access, context continues to toss, turn and tumble around the foundations of conversations. Word has it that the phone works pretty well at restoring context. TBD. What do you think?

    …strange this, the phone I mean…and phone numbers. What ever happened to phone numbers on websites. Oh and people who answer business phones…?

    Mine is at the top of my site, and I answer it…

    Social Media – the Twitterverse and Stumblverse, The Diggs, and so on…would have thought all of these were meant to engender more contact, and they were, and they sometimes still do. But only if that is part of the effort…

    If the context is “Information Generation” and not “Information Integration” then “Content” is like a shout in the wind.

    @Martin or perhaps like a peeing into the wind. However you have inspired my next post.

    If that’s context, where’s content?
