KM Chicago May 10: Social Search Engines with Bill Chamberlin

Social Search Engines: Social media are a new way to contribute digital content, so we need better ways to search for this content than the big search engines offer.

The emergence of social media means a new and different way for people to contribute digital content. Likewise, it means we need new ways to search for and find this new content. The big search engines don't necessarily focus on finding this content. This session will provide an overview of some search engines that help you find information in the social media. At the end of this session, you should be able to:

  • Understand why we want to search and participate in the social media 
  • Understand what types of search engines are available on the public Internet that allow you to search social content.
