    In the past few weeks while I was nagging my luck and writing a blog post about it ( I still going to post it but not now ) under the name : Good for nothing the story of look promising man. a long name I know but what can I say lol.  so while I was gathering data for my masterpiece  it looked like I opened a mystery box to explore the power of social network. I saw how it created jobs that didn’t need a  years of education and exams to be called later one of 13ths useless jobs (hint architects) http://bit.ly/KgaQr1

    Architects have tried to conquer the online SN`s or at least some of them tried , Archinect is one of the attempts and so many others. but did they actually reached everyone ? I mean on reaching architecture and even design professionals yea sure maybe they did reach them but did this networks helped the Architecture career ?

    I would like to think that we do is built environment and if we tried to simplify it lets say what we doing is a [ building ]  and if there is something need to speak on behalf of architects is this buildings

     

    think about it and comment below :)

      Liechen thanks for your comment i have checked the link you posted. and this wasn't what i was talking about as from what i saw on this website honestbuildings.com its just an real estate listing with a share/tweet button the buildings it self dont have the kind of interaction that i was talking about
