Women, LGBT least safe on Facebook, despite 'real name' policy | Social Media Articles - Social Media Working Group | Scoop.it

The Safety Net Project (at the National Network to End Domestic Violence, NNEDV) recently released a report based on results from victim service providers called A Glimpse From the Field: How Abusers Are Misusing Technology:  http://techsafety.org/blog/2015/2/17/a-glimpse-from-the-field-how-abusers-are-misusing-technology

 

The report found that nearly all (99 percent) the responding programs reported that Facebook is the most misused social media platform by abusers. Facebook is a key place for offenders to access information about victims or harass them by direct messaging or via their friends and family. The respondents included national domestic violence programs, sexual assault programs, law enforcement, prosecutor's offices and civil legal services.

Do you remember Arby’s tweet “Hey @Pharrell, can we have our hat back? #GRAMMYs” that generated 81,764 retweets and 48,437 favorites?

 

(Arby’s later bought Williams’s fedora for $44,000 and donated the money to his charity).

A humor and (less than) 140 characters can lead to a great exposure on Twitter.

Professor Says Facebook Can Help Informal Learning – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Professor Says Facebook Can Help Informal Learning – Wired Campus - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Social Media Articles - Social Media Working Group | Scoop.it

Who says Facebook is always a distraction? A new study suggests that if engaged in online debate, college students can use the popular social network to learn and develop a variety of skills:  http://msutoday.msu.edu/news/2015/is-facebook-the-next-frontier-for-online-learning


In a paper released on Monday, Christine Greenhow, an assistant professor of education at Michigan State University, argues that using informal social-media settings to carry on debates about science can help students refine their argumentative skills, increase their scientific literacy, and supplement learning in the classroom. Past studies have shown that informal settings, like conversations with friends, can facilitate learning, but according to Ms. Greenhow, very little has been studied about informal online contexts and social networks, like Facebook applications.
