Time Spent on Instagram (infographic)

Time Spent on Instagram (infographic) | Social media and education | Scoop.it

Instagram has reinvigorated many artistic endeavors: social photo-sharing, old-timey photographic styling, and foodie dining excitement, to name a few.


But none more so than the art of time-wasting...

With their noses buried in their smartphones, you can bet most people are up to one thing—Instagramming. Last fall, information from Comscore even reported that users were spending nearly 1.5 times the amount of time on Instagram as they were on Twitter. And just today, Instagram announced it has reached 90 million total users, proving the app isn’t disappearing from peoples’ fingertips any time soon.

If you’re wondering how on earth so much time is spent on Instagram, this Visual Storytelling pie chart breaks it down for you.

Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids

Apps in Education: Cool Maths apps for kids | Social media and education | Scoop.it

Maths Apps are the ones most frequently searched for on this site. I sometimes think that if I had some of these apps I would have taken a greater interest in Maths as a kid. It was not that I was disinterested I just missed some of the basics. With some of these game based apps at least students can be engaged long enough to discovery some of the basic maths concepts.

Twitter bug gives 3rd-party apps access to users' Direct Messages

Twitter bug gives 3rd-party apps access to users' Direct Messages | Social media and education | Scoop.it

"There should be millions of Twitter users that have signed in with Twitter into third-party applications. Some of these applications might have gained access to and might still have access to Twitter users private direct messages," he points out, and advises users to check third-party applications permissions and revoke the apps to which they never gave permission to access their DMs.
