5 Reasons We Use Social Media - Edudemic | Connecting with technology-ICT for university educators. | Scoop.it
There are many reasons we use social media. From the basic to the more advanced, the tool is simply ubiquitous and addictive. This infographic sheds some light for us all.
Catherine Smyth's insight:

The dizzying array of social media tools can be overwhelming. My favourites for teaching and building a professional community are Scoop.it and Twitter. I love Scoop.it because of its accessilbity and how I can connect with people all over the world. The influence of social media is incredible as the statistics on the graphic on this blog show and as educators, we need to think about the implications of this for teaching and learning.

Some valuable e-safety thoughts :) 

Owen Kim's curator insight, March 7, 4:48 AM

Social media is something that almost everyone uses and can give significant impact to people. Some people cannot differentiate what is and what is not appropriate to upload or publish hence it is good that everyone knows what and when to upload. Some people now days leave negative comments because of inappropriate posts which may lead to conflicts between people or hurting one's emotion. I feel that people should be sensitive when uploading a post so that negative impacts of social media will not worsen.

Sze Min's curator insight, March 8, 6:20 AM

Almost everyone has social media accounts nowadays. But it stills narrow down to whether you are using it appropriately or not. Especially when the social medias are linked together, you would have to be careful on how you use it, as once the photos or status are online, everybody in the world would be able to see it.
