Teenagers say goodbye to Facebook, adding street cred to WeChat

Teenagers say goodbye to Facebook, adding street cred to WeChat | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

We’ve heard about how Facebook is losing its street cred and its teenage audience as more and more baby boomers (their parents) join the platform. Where are all the teenagers going to, then? The answer is WeChat.

 

Chinese messaging app WeChat is the fastest growing social app used by youths worldwide, according to a study by Global Web Index. The latest study was conducted based on the feedback from teenagers aged 16 to 19 globally, excluding China. WeChat saw a 1,021 percent increase in usage among youths between Q1 and Q3 2013.

This infographic explores the use of social media in schools. We know that teenagers (and tweens) are actively engaged with social media. As educators how can we leverage this use and bring it into our classrooms. We know our students are actively using this technology outside of school...so why do so many schools ban it? This post explores reasons why we should look at this issue.

The infographic is divided into a number of sections.

* If You can't Beat 'Em, Join 'Em - Social Networking Stats

* Benefits of Social Media in the Classroom - a look at Student Benefits, Educator Benefits and Parental Benefits

* Examples of Social Media in the Classroom: Looking at Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Blogging

* Social Media Pilot Program: Learn about a program in Portland, Oregon and the difference it made

Resources are also provided at the bottom of the infographic.

This document reflects how Social Media is being utilized in the perspective of the teacher and student. Students should read this document and highlight and underline the main points and be prepared for a discussion about the topic of Social Media in the classroom.
