Twitter rechnet Nutzernamen und Links nicht mehr auf 140-Zeichen-Limit an
von Björn Greif am 25. Mai 2016, 12:21 Uhr
Twitter weicht seine prägendes 140-Zeichen-Limit in den kommenden Monaten weiter auf. In Antworten erwähnte Nutzernamen und angehängte Links zu Medieninhalten wie Bilder oder Videos werden künftig nicht mehr auf die Zeichenzahl angerechnet. Das gab Twitter am Dienstag in seinem Blog bekannt und bestätigte damit Medienberichte von vergangener Woche.

5 Tips to Prevent Digital Burnout and Maintain Good Mental Health

5 Tips to Prevent Digital Burnout and Maintain Good Mental Health | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

The Internet's reach is so pervasive, it feels as though it has always been around. The reality is that the web is still in its infancy, and we don't really understand the risks it poses to our mental health. In fact, various experts, such as Larry D. Rosen, a psychologist and author of "iDisorder," believe that personal gadgets are making us mentally ill and are exacerbating other problems such as narcissism, depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder. Other mental health professionals have already identified disorders ranging from "Facebook depression" to "phantom vibration syndrome."

 

Realistically, most of us don't have the luxury of disconnecting from the Internet, particularly communication professionals whose work depends more and more on it.

 

However, there are various things you can do to curtail the negative effects it may have and prevent digital burnout.

How To Decide Which Social Network You Should Use

How To Decide Which Social Network You Should Use | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

You don’t have time to monitor Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Orkut, LinkedIn, wait, Orkut? Exactly. There are literally kabillions of social networks out there just screaming to get you in as a user. Sure, Twitter and Facebook are the big ones that you’ve already joined. But are they right for you? What about LinkedIn? Or the upstart (and newly redesigned) Google+?

 

The following infographic from business consultant Zintro does a decent job summarizing the numbers, pros and cons, and what makes each network different. While it is not exhaustive (where’s Pinterest?!), it’s helpful.

Falls sich die Behörde durchsetzt, dürfen sich USA-Reisende deshalb über noch mehr über Bürokratieirrsinn nerven als bisher. Übrigens: Die Kosten für die Bearbeitung dieser Formulare, das lässt sich aus der Notiz der Behörde herauslesen, liegt bei knapp 300 Millionen US-Dollar im Jahr.

What the Heck Do We Do with Social Media?

What the Heck Do We Do with Social Media? | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Betty Ray is Edutopia's senior blog editor and community manager. She was one of the organizers for TEDxSFED in San Francisco and is a regular blogger for Edutopia.

 

Social media is arguably the single most disruptive innovation in the history of industrialized civilization. It’s redefining how we engage with each other, how we do business, how we get our news, how we spend our free time and how we revolt against repressive regimes. It’s no wonder that people are terrified of it. And to that end, it’s not surprising that many educators find themselves in schools where social media is blocked -- and/or with draconian social media policies in place.

#Satchat ~ A Great Example of Expanding Your PLN

#Satchat ~ A Great Example of Expanding Your PLN | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

By: Brad Currie and Scott Rocco #Satchat is a great example of the power of social media in the educational realm and the benefit of expanding an educator’s Personal Learning Network (PLN).

 

The tools of the ever evolving #Satchat discussion are many. During the week Twitter’s direct messaging feature is used by @scottrrocco and @bcurrie5 as they prepare and discuss questions/topics for the upcoming chat. Then a Twitter Poll is used to survey participants about what it is they are interested in discussing during #Satchat. Daily promos are made on Twitter and also by way of an Audioboo .

 

During the actual chat Twitter for iPad, HootSuite and other Twitter tools enable participants to communicate and get their points across. After the chat Storify is used to archive the chats and make them available to those who participated. A wiki is also maintained by the very talented and co-founder of #NJED Bill Krakower @wkrakower.

Twitter Basics for Students

Twitter Basics for Students | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Have you heard of Twitter? Do you like to tweet? Most likely you’ve utilized social networking websites such as Facebook. So why would you consider using Twitter?

 

To enhance and increase connections with classmates – and potentially your instructors, as you may not find it easy to network with students on other sites and it is very unlikely that your instructors will appear on your friends list. What if I told you that this can help you develop an academic network and support system?

 

===> By the end of this post I believe you will want to give it a try and more importantly, you’ll likely find it can be an effective personal learning network. <===
