How social can you be?

How social can you be? | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

Is the internet all about being social? Doesn’t it wear us out? Doesn’t it keep brilliant introverts away from the action? Doesn’t it turn us into online social animals but offline antisocial beasts? Are we not living and going through life increasingly alone?


Also, does ‘going social’ mean we can never be purposeful any more because we always react epidermically, superficially? Like having difficulty finding a balance between thinking and acting?

Is ‘getting social’ our collective goal? Is that the only guarantee that people will share, learn and improve, or are there propositions on the table?

Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals is of vital importance, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way we use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

Google Plus: Personal Profiles Vs Business Pages | Where are you hanging out? | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
After participating in a fantastic monthly tweet chat, an interesting question was raised about what fellow Tweeters found more effective: Google+ personal profiles or Google+ business pages?

Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com's curator insight, Today, 1:24 AM


During the last monthly Twitter I host, we had a very interesting conversation on the differences between Google+ Pages and Profiles. 


My friend Janine Beattie, of [url=/u/329076 x-already-notified=1]Optimum Business Support[/url], decided to delve a little deeper to see what would work better. Her conclusion?


"Perhaps we can learn from Facebook and how we engage with a page that has a person's name and image, not just a brand that does the hard sell. The overall outcome of our discussion on#smslantchat was that as small businesses, our engagement and interaction on Google+ personal pages was far higher than on Google+ business pages."

When you are a freelancer, social media may feel like a very overwhelming world to decipher -- and for good reasons. 


But at the end of the day, it's about simplicity, human connections, and a willingness to help others.
