Social Media Is More Addictive Than Alcohol And Smoking?? [Study] | Web 2.0 - online connectivity | Scoop.it
Social media has made everyone its fans. It’s beyond belief to know that the average time spent by users on Facebook is 405 minutes every month which is equal to nearly 81 hrs in a year.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Brittany Skinner's insight:

An interesting infographic that highlights the notion social media gratification, and the addictive qualities that arise from talking/posting things about oneself. The author claims that "resisting twitter, facebook and other social media sites was harder than other urgues, including, smoking, drinking, spending money, sleeping and sex." Personally, i find this psychological effect fascinating.

Twitter as a tool for learningScoop.it | Web 2.0 - online connectivity | Scoop.it
Social media often gets a bad rap for being a driving force behind people falling out of touch, neglecting in-person relationships, and reducing productivity for people around the world.
Brittany Skinner's insight:

An interesting article that highlights some of the benefits of social media that often get overlooked due common concerns about “people falling out of touch, neglecting in-person relationships, and reducing productivity for people around the world,” driven by social media. In this regard, the author makes a valid case about how to use Twitter as a tool for learning.

The Impact of Educational Technology on Today's Students

The Impact of Educational Technology on Today's Students | Web 2.0 - online connectivity | Scoop.it
 Impact of Educational Technology on Students Parents and educators tend to believe that the classroom is a hallowed space set apart from the outside world.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Brittany Skinner's insight:

This is an interesting look at the double-edged nature of integrating technology into the classroom setting. What the author fails to acknowledge as a concern, is whether students are provided with the technological tools, or expected to provide them for themselves. If the latter is the case, will we see a growing divide between families that can afford to buy their child a laptop and those who can not? How will this affect their learning capabilities as classroom activities begin to revolve around the use of technology...

How is Facebook Addiction Affecting Our Minds? [INFOGRAPHIC] | Web 2.0 - online connectivity | Scoop.it
Receiving and responding to a Facebook notification makes you feel good, but does that mean you're on your way toward Facebook addiction?
Brittany Skinner's insight:

A great infographic displaying some of the psychological effects generated by the use of social media sites such as Facebook. This reminds me of a documentary that highlighted how some communities have begun to introduce "Internet detox" camps, in order to address some of the computer addiction issues prevalent among young users.

Facebook More Memorable Than Faces or Books

Facebook More Memorable Than Faces or Books | Web 2.0 - online connectivity | Scoop.it
The language of microblogging is remembered more readily than sentences from books, a new study says.
Brittany Skinner's insight:

This is an interesting article that discusses how facebook statuses/posts are more memorable than faces or books. The author touches upon the notion of the simplification of text, "gossipy" tone and "mind-ready" elements within said posts and how perhaps this contributes to cognitive recognition and greater memorability over other forms of text.
