How Do You Know When You’re Overdosing On Social Networks?

How Do You Know When You’re Overdosing On Social Networks? | Social media and education | Scoop.it

Social networks are captivating – there’s no doubt. The minds behind building the popular social media platforms of today knew exactly what they were doing and they saw it before any of us ever did. It’s a brilliant idea really – create a medium that allows people from all over the world to connect, share and collaborate like they never have been able to before in the history of the Earth. Incredible!

But an unforeseen (or potentially foreseen, but ignored) consequence is addiction. Social networks have been so good at “helping” us, but now they’re hindering us. From what you might ask? Well, ask your friends, family, parents, even children what they think. And although it is often joked about, it isn’t a joking matter.

Wow a great post on blogs. With these 26 points, you know everything that is useful to be a great blogger. I'll keep it in the mind during 2013.

The technical side of blogging can be very demanding, so the plugins really help. In addition to great content and SEO, I think you need an outreach/networking program.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 7, 2013 4:35 PM
Yes indeed, this is an interesting point, thanks.

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools

40 Social Media Curation Sites and Tools | Social media and education | Scoop.it

Last month I shared 40+ networks that you could consider depending on your niche or interests. As part of my commitment to this community, I shared that I will expand on this list througout 2012. So here is the first addition to that build! The topic- Curation!I thought I would focus on curation because a) I have a favorite site and b) there has been a lot of “press” on Pinterest as a curation tool and as a result I thought the timing was right. However before I list the sites lets talk curation.

 

What is social media curation?

 

Today, with the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, it can be overwhelming searching for information on the internet. As a result, the act of filtering, selecting, reviewing and providing commentary with a perspective on an article, or collection of articles, have become increasingly important. This is known as social media curation. Recently, I had posed the question : What is a social media curator” on Linkedin.

Thanks Everyone for this feedback. Just wonderful.

Robin- absolutely appreciated the feedback. I did visit all the sites to ensure that they were still in operation however missed some very important details. So thank you so much for providing the clarification needed. :))

Martin you need to do a little of what the article says - add your own perspective! I read the info and thought you had written it until I went to the link.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 23, 2012 3:05 AM
Hi Carey, I consider scoop.it as a tool to provide interesting information and not really as a curation tool, but, maybe you're right and I should reconsider my opinion about my approach! Thank you for your feedback.

How to clear your Facebook search history

How to clear your Facebook search history | Social media and education | Scoop.it

How to clear your Facebook search history

 

Can you lose your Facebook Page because you didn't follow the rules? Facebook would never shut down a Page because they ran a contest and did something like... oh, I don't know, maybe offer to donate a dollar to charity for every Like their Page gets... right?

I'm constantly seeing people saying they've never heard of a Page being shut down for violating a rule and that Facebook doesn't enforce most of them anyway. Well, here are two examples of some popular Pages that were shut down by Facebook for some seemingly innocent contest rule violations. Think it's okay to do it just because you see the big dogs doing it? Think again.

It's always great practice to also  to go back and review what you've posted and commented on just in case. This is a must-do.

Martin Gysler's comment, February 6, 2013 11:27 AM
Yes Dawn, and I think it's not only a must-do but also an educational matter.

As expected, younger faculty members are busier on social media than their older counterparts. While 44.7 percent use it professional, even fewer, 33.8 percent, teach with these tools. Primary teaching uses include:

In today's college classrooms the sound of furious note-scribbling has been replaced by clacking on keyboards and tapping on tablets. Thanks to the ubiquity of WiFi on campuses, it's not just note-taking that's been given a 21st-century update.
