  • Twitter, the third most used social network, is most popular among younger users, and membership drops off incrementally for older audiences
  • Twitter ,
  • Facebook is the only one that knows no generational limits
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • Facebook beats the other social networking sites by a long-shot, too. LinkedIn, the next most popular site, claims only 28% of the U.S. adult online population.
  • The youngest members are also likely to be the most active users of any of the social networks.
  • Forrester’s survey was conducted online in July — shortly after Google+ launched, so Google’s social network is absent from the findings
    Interesting report from Forrester Research. Really nothing earth-shattering, but it kind of proves the point that everyone is on Facebook and it's a powerful tool for business and education. Guess I have to get an account now! I am very curious to see what, if any, impact Google+ has on Facebooks domination.

TwHistory - 1 views

    Create historical twitter character then tweet based on history research  Quote from Mark Rounds Web-Ed Tools, "Participants choose a historical event, create Twitter accounts for individual characters, pore over primary source documents and think critically about the times, dates, and durations of events to create hundreds of Tweets as they might have been broadcast had Twitter existed before the 21st century. They then submit all those Tweets to the engineers at TwHistory, specifying a start date for their event, and then watch it unfold - over a day, a week, a month or more - reflecting the event's actual duration."

JuncoHeibergerLokenTwitterEngagementGrades.pdf (application/pdf Object) - 0 views

    This article is a description of a study conducted with pre-health profession students assigned randomly to an experimental or control group to measure the effect of using Twitter as an educational intervention on student engagement and grades. The study contributes new evidence based knowledge for educators, counselors, and researchers interested in the effect of integrating technology into the learning environment. Midwest Consortium for Service-Learning in Higher Education and the Corporation for National and Community Service funded the study. Reynol Junco PhD, a licensed professional counselor and Associate Professor at Lock Haven University; Greg Heibergert MS, Advisor and Instructor for Pre-Health Professionals at South Dakota State University; and Eric Loken PhD, a Research Associate and Professor at Pennsylvania State University coauthored the article reporting on their study. The authors measured engagement using 19 questions extracted from the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and grades using grade point average (GPA). Quantitative and qualitative analysis of Twitter activity and specific educational interventions using Twitter were described in rich detail. The outcomes were statistically significant increase in engagement and grades as measured by the modified NSSE and GPA. There were several limitations addressed in the study that could be opportunities for future studies. The authors pointed out that integrating social media in and of itself will probably not have the same effect. It is the engagement between faculty and students using the technology that the authors suggest make the difference in the outcomes.
