10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC]

10 Amazing #SocialMedia Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC] | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.

 

These, and several other amazing social media statistics, can be found in the infographic on social media statistics...

52 Secrets Students Should Know about Google Docs

52 Secrets Students Should Know about Google Docs | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

I have been using Google Docs for a couple of years now and each time I discover a new way to use it in education I would say that this is the last tip I did not know but always proved wrong. There are always more and more to learn and in fact the moment you think you have learned it all is the moment you start to loose it all. This is at least what I have learnt from both " The Ultimate Guide to Google Free Tools for Teachers and Students " and " The Entire Guide to Google Search Features for Teachers and Students ".

I like the list, but was disappointed that it had duplications. It listed sites that I felt were not Web 2.0, or very useful in the classroom.

Hi Ken,

I tend to agree with you, but on the other hand, it's an interesting list to help getting non-tech teachers on board. And as you say, there are many other sites which are terrific yet not included. Thank you for your contribution! :-)
