Using Wikis

I belong to a group in FaceBook of young people who are performing various ministries. I am asking any or several members to make the home page of the Wiki. If anyone in the group doesn't like how the home page looks, they can edit it.

When the home page is complete, Patti for example, can make her own page on what she is doing at the soup kitchen.

This is an experiment. If it doesn't work, I will try to use another approach.

Free Wikis can be obtained at http://www.wikispaces.com

Facebook can be found at http://www.facebook.com

Good luck with your experiment, Gene!

As I mentioned before, I'm also very curious about how Wikis will be useful to the PulseWire mission. I'm beginning to experiment with Peanut Butter Wiki, myself... Have you tried it? I don't have much figured out yet, but here's the link, in case your curious: http://pbwiki.com/.

I'd love it if you'd join me in posting our respective findings in Goldie's Web 2.0 group for all to reference? If it's easier to post what you learn here in your personal journal, that's fine too. In that case, I'll read your info here and make sure it makes its way into our team's discussions!

Wishing you a peaceful and powerful 2008,

Maria Jett, Online Community Director

Your suggestion was a big help

pbwiki is so much more user friendly than the site I was using.

I have corrected the link in my original post above:

http://marysmission.pbwiki.com is the new location of the Wiki.

Here is my plan. Already on FaceBook we have many of our students etc. I have made a group called "Help Mary in her Mission". The WIKI will show activities the students are doing.

On Facebook, there is a group called WorldPulse, I believe. I think you can use FaceBook as a point of recruitment.

My priorities are of course with the Marianists. One Blog,and then FaceBook groups take up a lot of time. I will still drop into PulseWire from time to time.
