The Twouble with Twitter
Today in Media & Society we explored social networking. Students agreed that Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace can be great tools for staying in touch with friends, planning activities, publicizing events and making business and professional contacts.
Of course, they have their downsides as well, especially the incredible "time suck" that "just keeping in touch" can become. As part of our discussion, we enjoyed this parody of Twitter users on Current-SuperNews.
We got off to a happy start with "The Twitter Song" and the older ones among us, myself included, took heart that we are the fastest-growing demographic on Facebook. Yea for us!
