Heyjude ~ Learning in an online world | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it

Content curation is part of an overall strategy to tame information chaos. For me, it’s all about knowing, learning, sharing and teaching, all in one! 

 

Here I WAS  exploring the concept, theory and practice of social networking technologies within the context of libraries and the work of information professionals.  I AM NO LONGER MAINTAINING THIS SCOOP.  THANK YOU.

Social Media Guidelines

Social Media Guidelines | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it
More and more, social media is becoming a part of our daily lives. Just today, Mashable is out with a report that says Pintrest (which is less than a year old) is the #3 social network in the U.S. This report mentions that the amount of monthly traffic Facebook receives is seven billion page views, and Twitter receives 182. Again, these are just U.S. statistics. If we were to look at the numbers worldwide, I would guess they would be much, much higher.

 

But it isn't just adults who are moving more of their lives to online spaces. In a recent Pew Internet survey, 73 percent of all teens used social networks daily. The most popular of these is Facebook; however, Twitter, Myspace and even LinkedIn are not far behind.

 

And it isn't just teens. The #1 social network for kids under the age of 13 is Club Penguin. It is visited more times each day than the New York Times..

Social networking policy whiplash - Home - Doug Johnson's Blue Skunk Blog | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it

As educators, we have a professional image to uphold and how we conduct ourselves online impacts this image. As reported by the media, there have been instances of educators demonstrating professional misconduct while engaging in inappropriate dialogue about their schools and/or students or posting pictures and videos of themselves engaged in inappropriate activity online. Mistakenly, some educators feel that being online shields them from having their personal lives examined. But educators’ online identities are very public and can cause serious repercussions if their behavior is careless.
