Welcome to the Gloucester Gulls...
The Gloucester Gulls are a group of exiled Torquay United supporters who happen to be living in the Gloucester area. A small, but none the less, dedicated group of supporters who are prepared to spend most of their Saturdays following their beloved team around the country.
Stay in touch with the Gloucester Gulls
Social networking is currently one of the most discussed features on the intranet. Sites such as Facebook™ and Twitter™ are enabling groups of people to come to together and form virtual communities sharing common interests. In order to see how successful this type of media actually is, the Gloucester Gulls have formed groups on the following social networking sites:
Most of these sites require that you register first in order to join the groups, but once you have joined you will be able to participate in discussion forums, take part in on-line votes and view and post photos and videos.
Follow the Gloucester Gulls on Twitter
Twitter has recently received a lot of attention from the national press with high-profile users such as Stephen Fry and Richard Bacon regularly praising the Twitter service.

Mobile Tag the Gloucester Gulls
Mobile Tag is a Microsoft application that it similar to the QR Codes mentioned below, but has the advantage that they can be used with a lower specification camera on a mobile phone. Just like with QR Codes, the idea is that you download the Mobile Tag application to your mobile phone (there is also an iPhone app) and then effectively take a picture of the tag (a series of coloured triangles). The application then translates this code and will launch the appropriate website and hence avoid having to type in long URL names.
The application can be downloaded to your mobile phone from http://gettag.mobi

Access the Gloucester Gulls via QR codes
After social networking (e.g. Facebook, My Space etc. - see below), the new technology that everyone is talking about is the mobile web - or the ability to access the internet from mobile devices, for example mobile phones.
Leading the mobile web technology are QR (Quick Reference) Codes - a mosaic styled bar code that enables web addresses to be embedded within the QR code. A user having a mobile phone equipped with a camera and the correct reader software (a lot of Nokia phones now have this installed as standard) can scan the image of the QR Code causing the phone's browser to launch and redirect to the programmed URL.
The Gloucester Gulls have taken the opportunity offered by QR Codes to launch a mobile version of this website which has been especially designed for ease of access when surfing the internet using a mobile phone. You will now be able to access the Gloucester Gulls whenever you are out and about.
Torquay United in Second Life
Second Life™ is a virtual world created by Linden Labs. It requires a downloaded program, but residents within Second Life are able to interact with each other through the use of avatars (3D-representations of a person).
There is an entire world to be explored, with many major cities and landmarks having been created. However, of more interest to Gulls fans, a Second Life group has been created called "Torquay United Supporters".
The Gloucester Gulls Guest Book is once again available.
