'How social media helped me deal with my mental illness'

'How social media helped me deal with my mental illness' | social media and libraries | Scoop.it

Social media is often given a bad rap for trolling, abuse and encouraging people to be superficial.

But although these sites have a dark side, some people have found it's actually helped their mental illness.

The anonymity of some networks means people can open up without fearing negative perceptions of mental health will follow them around.

Additionally, connecting with people going through the same thing helps them feel less isolated.

'It gave me the confidence to talk about it in real life'

The Reason Twitter’s Losing Active Users

The Reason Twitter’s Losing Active Users | social media and libraries | Scoop.it

Abuse. And it’s not only a problem for Twitter. 

What happened to Twitter? Once, it was glorified as a digital town square, where thinkers and activists could come together to discuss and organize. And yet this week, they finally admitted that their growth has stalled – and their stock quickly followed suit.

Twitter and its analysts appear to believe that the slump is due to competition — and so it’s adding new features, buttons, and functions, as fast as it can. But none of these have captured users’ imaginations, much less their interest. Instead, they’ve turned what was an elegant platform into a flashing Las Vegas of GIFs and #trending #spam. The downward spiral continues.

Ontvriendden jullie ook wel eens iemand op Facebook vanwege politieke voorkeur? – Rafelranden

Ontvriendden jullie ook wel eens iemand op Facebook vanwege politieke voorkeur? – Rafelranden | social media and libraries | Scoop.it

Ik wel namelijk. En dat vond ik niet gemakkelijk, omdat ik sowieso al vrij kritisch ben op wie mijn Facebookvrienden zijn en daarbinnen ook vrij strikt hanteer wie vriend, kennis etc. is. Ook wijs ik geregeld vriendschapsverzoeken af van mensen die ik niet of nauwelijks ken. Of Facebook deel ik namelijk andere zaken dan op Twitter, LinkedIn of hier op mijn blog.

En dat brengt me bij één van grootste bezwaren van het ontvrienden: dat ik daarmee ook m’n eigen echo chamber en filter bubble creëer. Links- of rechtsom laat ik me op Facebook omringen door (min of meer) gelijkstemden en negeer ik extremiteiten. Is dat goed?

I "unfriended" over 3500 people and it made Facebook more bearable, but I don't doubt for a minute it is still a negative influence when it comes to my mental health.

Clay Shirky: The digital revolution in higher education has already happened. No one noticed. — Medium

Clay Shirky: The digital revolution in higher education has already happened. No one noticed. — Medium | social media and libraries | Scoop.it

The digital revolution in higher education has happened. In the fall of 2012, the most recent semester with complete data in the U.S., four million undergraduates took at least one course online, out of sixteen million total, with growth up since then. Those numbers mean that more students now take a class online than attend a college with varsity football. More than twice as many now take a class online as live on campus. There are more undergraduates enrolled in an online class than there are graduate students enrolled in all Masters and Ph.D. programs combined. At the current rate of growth, half the country’s undergraduates will have at least one online class on their transcripts by the end of the decade. This is the new normal.

Less than a month after launching its brand in South Africa, H&M—the Swedish-headquartered, multinational fast-fashion retailer—is already grabbing headlines here for the wrong reasons.

 Earlier this week, a South African twitter user who had visited the new H&M store in Cape Town asked why H&M had a dearth of black models in its advertising.

The social media analytics compass contains the most essential areas that you need to monitor for your social media channels.

 

It’s not possible to monitor everything across every channel due to limitations of the tool and it’s not essential to monitor everything depending on the business.

 

From this compass pick out what’s important for your business and identify a relevant tool to provide the relevant reports. Let’s look at each section of your compass (Note: you will need to differentiate between paid and unpaid)....

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | social media and libraries | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. It is an everyday device that can be readily used by everyday teachers; it can be applied to everything from curriculum planning and development, to writing learning objectives and designing centered activities. The idea is for the users to respond to the challenges that the Wheel presents for their teaching practices, and to ask themselves the tough questions about their choices and methods.

Facebook's Free Basics service has been banned in India

Facebook's Free Basics service has been banned in India | social media and libraries | Scoop.it

Facebook's free-but-restricted internet service, Free Basics, has been banned in India after the country's national telecoms regulator ruled that the program and others like it infringe the

principles of net neutrality. The ruling was not directly aimed at Free Basics, but the general practice of zero-rated internet services — those that let users access certain apps and websites without eating away at their mobile data.

 

FACEBOOK BOUGHT BILLBOARDS AND ADS TO PROMOTE FREE BASICS

 

The decision from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) comes after a long battle between Facebook and the country's net neutrality advocates. Free Basics was blocked temporarily in India last December while the TRAI considered its case, but other services — like Airtel Zero — had previously been the subject of protests. But although Facebook's attempt to offer subsidized content wasn't the only such program in India, it was particularly visible. After its temporary ban, the company started a campaign to try and win public support, reportedly spending nearly $45 million promoting Free Basics with billboards and newspaper advertisements.
