Why Twitter Needs Apple More Than Apple Needs Twitter

Why Twitter Needs Apple More Than Apple Needs Twitter | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise that Apple -- known for its go-it-alone ways -- would need a little help getting social.

 

The real winner in a deal, however, could be Twitter. Facebook shares have fallen more than 38% since the Menlo Park, Calif.-based social networks May IPO. Shares in another standard bearer for social media, gaming company Zynga, have fallen more than 65% so far this year. The prospects for a social media IPO, or an acquisition by a larger social media company, are diminishing quickly.

 

A deal with Apple would give Twitter ties to a company with products that are more tangible, at least, than those of its peers in social media.

Continuing our theme of using Twitter in education this week, we bring you a look at the ways Twitter is causing the current lecture model to evolve. The following analysis is brought to you by our content partners over at Online Universities.

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.

Finally, a look at the people who use Twitter

Finally, a look at the people who use Twitter | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

The days of “I don’t get Twitter” may soon pass. Tweets are now a form of self-expression among connected consumers and it is this connected generation that continues to grow in size and influence year over year. Much in the same way that TXTing is a natural form of common conversation, even if it’s a norm that’s outside of the world as you know it—Twitter is reflective of how millions of people are connecting and communicating.


Over the years, Twitter has become a human seismograph measuring world events, popular culture, everyday sentiment,while providing a lens into every nuance that captivates our attention. What was once a Twitter paradox is now part of our digital culture. Everyday people who are connected to Twitter become the nodes and their shared experiences form one of the most efficient information networks in the world.

Experts fear that our digital interactions and connections will eventually surpass our face-to-face meetings with friends and colleagues. Add this to the prediction that 1billion smart phones will be sold in 2016 and we could have a serious smartphone epidemic on our hands.
