Tremendous post on this subject.. I have several “google alerts” set up and quite often am in the same situation when one comes in from LiveJournal… Respond or just lurk, afraid of being the stalker. Anyway, tremendous use of resources and outside the box. Now you just have to get her in the door, despite her not being a blue blood.. That’s a whole other blog post, or blog, or book in itself… Actually reading a great book by Mitchell Stevens, Creating a Class: College Admissions and the Education of Elites…, so that’s been on my mind of late.. There’s nothing wrong with IUPUI (haha)

Great example of how admissions/pr/marketing staff can engage in online conversation with the university community. I’ve been using Google Alerts the exact same way for a while now, and I still haven’t had the “you’re a creep” reaction yet.

As for co.mments, there’s also a bookmarklet you can add to your browser toolbar that makes it even easier — one click — to follow conversations.

I got it once, I wish I could find the link. It was before I started using co.mments.

I need to start using that bookmarklet link, I just realized I had it on my toolbar and never click it!

I pull the RSS feed from Google News, Yahoo News, Bloglines, and Digg then display them on a tab in my NetVibes page. Essentially the same thing, but definitely a must for any PR staffers. Also thanks for the plugs and link earlier. This is the first time I’ve seen your blog. Pretty good stuff here! I’m returning the favor and adding a link in my blogroll! Thanks again!
