Shawn Read's insight:

Interesting how Facebook is highlighted in this article.  In my very unscientific poll, students in my classes seem to be migrating to Instagram, Snapchat, Whisper, and Vine.

Experimenting with Facebook in the College Classroom

Experimenting with Facebook in the College Classroom | Distance Learning and Technology | Scoop.it

I later learned that 99% of the students in the research method class were Facebook users, routinely checking for updates 10-20 times a day. I asked them to refrain checking their phones during class.
