Communities and Networks Connection Hotlists

spring buds by choconancy on FlickrNow that we are a couple of months into the “signal sharing” of the Communities and Networks Connection, I wanted to share the top posts people have clicked into on the site (courtesy of the magic of Tony Karrer).  I find that sometimes I am paying attention to the site, and other times it is off my radar. But when I look at the top hit list below, I recognize many of the posts as ones I have read, so for me, personally, there is resonance with what other people are finding interesting. And I find THAT interesting.

The following are the top posts in March from featured sources based on social signals, with a few annotations from posts that I found useful.  Notice how many are about Twitter!
