Tuesday Push –

The Tuesday Push is a unique way for members of the Irish web/tech community to give attention and a little link love to one of their own. The latest push is for MyMunster – a social network for fans of Munster Rugby.

I am proud to say that I am a Munster fan and I attend as many matches as I can. Munster fans are already a fantastic “real world” community and it is a great fit to recreate that community online. On MyMunster you can join in the discussion, add photos and videos, enter competitions and keep up with the latest news on the team. I have just signed up and look forward to being an active member.

I leave you with a clip of the Munster Haka from the Munster vs. All Blacks match for the opening of the new Thomond Park last November. It was a great night and the best atmosphere at any match I have ever attended.

Tuesday Push: IGOpeople – Networking for the Real World

The Tuesday Push is back. I was a spectator when it was running last year and it’s great to take part this year. The Tuesday Push is a way to highlighting innovative Irish tech startups and giving exposure to their service or product.


Today’s push is for IGOpeople – a social network made up of Individuals, Groups and Organisiations. I have joined for PuddleDucks as an organisation and I’m looking forward to some open engagement with customers. I think IGOpeople has the structure to support extended conversations with you communities.

I also have a Facebook Fan page for PuddeDucks. I prefer the IGOpeople interface for engaging with people who sign up for your network. I also preferthe terminology. I am a little embarrassed at having to call people “Fans” on Facebook – joining your network on IGOPeople or being Followers is much more grown-up.

As I say i have joined as PuddleDucks as an Organisation. I also think I should join as an individual so I can join in the chat without carrying the business responsibility on my back.

Overall I am impressed with IGOpeople and would advise anyone to join. After all, the more the merrier – the larger the community, the better the debate.
