Making a website interactive can mean a lot of things, but in this forum it more than likely refers to allowing others to post content to your site (user generated content). A typical medium would be allowing for comments on a blog, or an interactive forum. To build a social network you will need those users to sign up for an account (profile) so that they can have a site identity which allows them to interact with the site and each other.
i am writing my Msc project on creating a social network site. i want to incorporate this on an already existing website of my faculty which does not have this facility,so that students and lecturers can interract. and that is why i asked how do i make a wesite interactive. i'm thinking of adding a mail facility, forums, discussion groups, students and lecturers uploading their pictures.what else do u think ican do cos i really appreciate your reply
Are you actually building this site, or just writing about what it could be? If you're building, it sounds like you've got a pretty good start by adding the ability for site members (students and lecturers) to upload their photo and letting them interact via discussion groups / forums. If you wanted additional social network functionality - look at all this site has to offer. Blogs, blog comments, ability to create groups, upload videos, view all members, be-friend members, etc.
There are a lot of options. Stop and think about what the objective is for the site. What are you trying to accomplish? Who will use it and what do you want them to do with it? Just adding blogs, forums, etc to a site will accomplish nothing if there is not a concrete incentive for your target audience to sign up and use them.
Greetings,What are you all doing online with "old" magazine stories? Do you delete issues after so many years? 5 years? 10? I'm torn between keeping all on for historical purposes or keeping just a few years online to simplify the site (ala Gerry McGovern.) Curious as to what you see best practices being.ThanksSara KisseberthBluffton Universitywww.bluffton.eduSee More
