The Survival of MySpace and Facebook, Under Threat in Australia
Linkau.com has redefined social networking by launching an all Australian social networking website which is already being dubbed as Youtube, Myspace, Odeo, Filickr, Match and Facebook – all in one.
It has unique features which major social networking sites are still dreaming about- a chat system with real-time audio and video conferencing, an exceptional private messaging environment, and members can track people around them with web presence. Audio/video messenger, audio/video recorder, whiteboard and ray desktop are some of its vast unique features.
LinkAU! is an online social networking platform designed to give the power of networking to the Australian community. LinkAU.com was formed to utilize the advantageous attributes, and the importance of a mutually beneficial relationship that significantly adds to the values of living in Australia.
Each portal contains its own community who engage in discussions, share interests, contacts, referrals and more. LinkAU.com membership secures a place in the national community that recognizes the importance of interoperability and intelligent information exchange that comes with the Augmented Social Network. LinkAU.com members leverage their participation in the Augmented Social Network to expand markets, advance new ideas, protect their social interests, and help build their community while collaborating within a safe, neutral environment.
Linkau.com has included but not limited its objectives to:
* To create an Internet-wide system that enables more efficient and effective knowledge sharing between people across institutional, geographic, and social boundaries.
* To establish a form of persistent online identity that supports the public commons and the values of civil society.
* To enhance the ability of Australian citizens to form relationships and self-organize around shared interests in communities of practice to better engage in the process of democratic governance.
Some of core elements of the LinkAU.com's technical architecture are:
* A form of user-controlled digital identity that is context-sensitive, enables personal recommendations and is built on open standards;
* Interoperability between the networking community:
* Brokering services that can connect individuals who share interests in a context-sensitive manner; and
* Public interest matching technologies that enable effective Internet-wide searches.
Young and proud www.linkau.com is designed for Australia by Australians and is already threatening the survival of MySpace and Facebook in Australia.
