Rebecca Haas's curator insight, February 19, 10:35 AM

This article makes a lot of valid points that can be used in every day on twitter, and in life in general! First impressions are as important on Twitter, and I think that is something many young professionals may overlook in interview and online. Also, I think many people follow their friends on Twitter, even if they are unrelated to their professional career, which can crowd their feed with social related things, rather than tweets related to education. This article also shows that it is possible to use your tweets outside of the Twitter realm, just by presenting your tweets on other social media sites! This seems to be a great checklist for the young professional, helping us utilize a site we most likely already frequent, but enabling us to turn it into a career-helping venue.

Key findings include:

 

Teens are sharing more information about themselves on their social media profiles than they did when we last surveyed in 2006:

 

- 91% post a photo of themselves, up from 79% in 2006.

 

- 71% post their school name, up from 49%.

 

- 71% post the city or town where they live, up from 61%.

Another list of social media management tools - and another time I found a new and interesting one in here: Triberr. This app helps you connecting to a like-minded group of bloggers as part of your networking and self-branding efforts:

 

"allows you to join “tribes” of like-minded bloggers in order to expand your reach on Twitter. Simply plug your RSS feed in and members of your tribe will tweet each new post. As a member, you can set yourself up to do automatic tweeting of other member’s posts or manual tweeting when you have reviewed and approved of the posts."

Abstract:
Teaching as well as attending lectures in big lectures halls is an often-usualsituation in middle European universities. Bearing in mind that a huge mass of learners leadsto a decrease of lecture-student interactivity during lectures, the research work aims toenhance traditional face-to-face teaching by technology.

Therefore a so-called TwitterWall is developed by Graz University of Technologyconcerning special pedagogical needs. Afterwards a first use in a big lecture is pointed outand discussed. The publication concluded that the use of Twitter in combination with specificsoftware can help to enhance lecture interactivity in mass-education.
