How Much Information Do You Share?

Humans have an inner desire to connect with others and the Internet makes it easy. Good things…incredible things happen when great minds align and collaborate together.

Ten years ago, much of the world was unconnected. Facebook and Twitter didn’t exist. I hesitated to share my full name online. I was simply D H.

Now, I blast off status updates, have hundreds of photographs displayed around the web and openly share ideas with other people.

However, I’m not an open-book. Important life details are private and it’s a rare occasion when I publicly announce my location away from home.

According to, 90% of adults think people are sharing too much information.

Brainstorming Ideas: Old vs. New

In elementary school, we were taught the writing web to enhance and organize our initial ideas. We put our main idea onto a piece of paper, circle it and all the details that pop into our heads. Eventually, we end up with a sheet full of words, circles and lines.

ecoscrapbooking ebook ifmine project - web writing exampleUsing my ebook project as an example, I think we can all agree that web writing isn’t pretty.

In today’s technologically advanced world, we turn to documents and apps like ^IfMine to develop our ideas. A brainstorming session can look like this, rather than the web of words above.

At ^IfMine, ideas can Evolve over and over again and the thought process can grow as you invite others to join a project.

What are you waiting for? Sign up for ^IfMine today and allow your ideas to flourish.
