News On Facebook: How Social Media Is Changing News Consumption

News On Facebook: How Social Media Is Changing News Consumption | Networking . . . | Scoop.it

Almost half of all adult Facebook users said that they “never” get news on the social network, which amounts to 30% of the adult U.S. population.

Most of those who find news on Facebook are not actively seeking it, according to the study data. Rather, some 78% said that it happened inadvertently -- they were on Facebook for another reason, and a news tidbit just happened to be featured in their newsfeed. Only 22% said they were actively looking for news on their newsfeeds.

Those who consume news on Facebook tend to be younger, the same age group that is much less likely to be engaged with news on other platforms.

The study also found that news consumption on Facebook did not replace other news-consumption activities.

We all need to embrace this if we don't want to be left behind

ExploreCurate's curator insight, November 2, 2013 5:34 AM

I love these pompous graphics images. When you have to scroll, you know their are important. Consumer behavior has always been key. At least for the marketers.

 

Newspapers saw early social media as a threat. Now they need to be friends with monsters like Facebook. Content is king. Distribution is everything. If you are a newspaper. Probably consumer behavior (and consumtion particulary) should be on top of every newspaper agenda.

Facebook doesn't replace our known News-Resources, but it's more and more becoming an additonal News-Ressource for us.

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought | Networking . . . | Scoop.it

"Recently on westXdesign–via scoopit–we found an interesting graphic about naming 12 principles of collaboration.

 

Collaboration is among the most-often promoted fluencies of 21st century learning (along with creativity and communication). However, there are very few frameworks or models that exist to support the development of better collaboration forms. As it is, in many K-12 learning environments, collaboration is limited to teacher-created grouping, or more scattered project-based learning groups that converge on a single project and thus a single goal.

 

The following principles of collaboration (seemingly created for businesses but clearly applicable to learning) push that idea a bit further–with some important emphases on the individual, including:"

The importance of collaboration in learning. To be taken into account when teaching

Library Staff's curator insight, October 29, 2013 8:13 PM

Schools are often difficult places in which to collaborate, given the time required. Technology enables online collaboration, but the first step is the mindset required.

Library Staff's curator insight, October 29, 2013 8:15 PM

Schools are often difficult places in which to collaborate, given the time required. Technology enables online collaboration, but the first step is the mindset teachers and school leaders must adopt. Shared belief is everything.

Shared Wi-Fi needn’t be anonymous: Gowex builds a social hotspot network in NYC | GigaOM Tech News | Networking . . . | Scoop.it

If you’re taking advantage of a coffee shop’s free Wi-Fi, you’ve already established a digital connection to that business. Why not use that link to be communicate with it? That’s the question that Spanish wireless ISP Gowex is asking, and it plans on delivering an answer in December in New York City.

 

Gowex has built a network of public, free hotspots in 80 major cities with the cooperation and support of their municipal governments. In September, Gowex set up shop in in NYC, but it didn’t just target the Midtown and downtown hot zones. It deployed 2,000 hotspots in lesser known commercial corridors in all five boroughs. Anyone who installs Gowex’s iPhone or Android app and registers can instantly connect to the hotspots as well as Gowex’s networks in cities around the world.

VT: Burlington's Next Step: Become a Gigabit Community | community broadband network

VT: Burlington's Next Step: Become a Gigabit Community | community broadband network | Networking . . . | Scoop.it

Burlington has seen ups and downs over the past few years but a new chapter is about to begin. The non-profit U.S. Ignite and the City are partnering to create BTV Ignite. The initiative will develop a gigabit community infrastructure and the applications that use it. With help from U.S. Ignite, Burlington will join the growing list of gigabit communities.

 

An advisory committee is fueling interest in the project. Mayor Miro Weinberger describes the effort as a way to develop a tech friendly local economy and increase access for individuals and institutions. A recent Government Technology article quoted the Mayor:

 

“We believe we’re well on our way to being the first city in the country that provides gigabit access to every student from kindergarten through college and even graduate school here in Burlington,” Weinberger said.

 

The City and its partner have developed five critical steps based on consultation with Kansas City, Chattanooga, and other gigabit communities:
