Service Tree

The Service Tree lists all services in "branched" groups, starting with the very general and moving to the very specific. Click on the name of any group name to see the sub-groups available within it. Click on a service code to see its details and the providers who offer that service.

Social Media

Online technology tools broadly known as "social media" that enable people to create and share content which may include text, images, video, audio and multimedia communications. Social media enable shared community experiences, both online and in person; and allow people with basic computer skills to tell their stories using publishing tools such as blogs, video logs (vlogs), photo sharing, podcasting (audio stories broadcast from the Web or downloaded to a computer or portable media players) and wikis (collaboratively edited Web pages). They can also help to filter and organize the overwhelming amount of information on the Web. Some better known examples include Wikipedia, MySpace, YouTube and Flickr. Other communities develop for support (Cancer Survivors Network), networking (LinkedIn) or political action (Open Congress). In this context, a community is a group of people with common interests who connect with one another to learn, play, work, organize and socialize. Virtual communities can be large or small, local or global, public or restricted to members.

Web Directories

Programs that compile and post lists of web resources that focus on specific topics or areas of interest.

Websites

Programs that maintain HTML-based (hypertext markup language) documents, often including graphics and sound as well as text, which are linked to related documents on other servers regardless of where they are stored on the Internet. The links are maintained through URLs (uniform resource locators) which are a standard way of representing the locations of HTML documents. Users can click on a highlighted word or phrase and can skip directly to files that are associated with it.
