As we continue to embrace (and comprehend) the seemingly endless array of social media platforms, we’re not only figuring out how best to engage with our local communities, but also how to make the most of the global audience and opportunities now at our finger tips. Geography is no longer a barrier.  People can connect from everywhere in the world, as long as they have an online connection. Social media networks help you connect with your friends and family, no matter where you are. Like a forest fire, the networking sites spread the news about any major or minor event from across the globe within seconds of their occurrence. With the use of social media, students can discuss educational topics and assignments as a group and can keep themselves updated on the go. In today’s “freelance economy,” relationships and referrals are the anchor of business development. Social media is often used as a platform for educational awareness campaigns about issues that have negative perceptions in areas such as mental health and disabilities.
Needless to say, the impact of social networks has been, is, and will continue to be life-altering. The Sydney Morning Herald reported just minutes ago that yet another refugee from the quarantined island Nauru has committed suicide, furthering the trend of the island’s residents developing bizarre mental health issues that cause them to commit suicide in unexpected ways. Pictures released of the graphic suicide are shown on the site, and they are shocking to say the least. The island has, for years, acted as a depository for immigrants to Australia who are not allowed to take up normal residence in the country because of Australia’s very strict immigration policies.
Children are the ones who suffer the most from the suicide island’s insanity-inducing effects, with The Guardian reporting that almost half of the children who leave Nauru alive have developed serious mental disorders while on the island. Despite what Brayley may say, though, children are certainly not the only ones on whom being contained on the suicide island is having disastrous psychological effects.
Many of Nauru’s refugee residents arrive at the island having undergone extremely traumatic experiences in their home countries, which are likely the reasons they emigrated in the first place. That was the case with the island’s most recent casualty, a male adult refugee who burned himself to death as an act of protest on Wednesday morning. Although fewer and further in between, some users saw the grisly island suicide as a call to action.

There are approximately 1.5 billion users in various social networking websites and the number still keeps growing.
Through the social network such as Facebook, it is much easier for an individual to communicate with their family and friends, keep touch with their classmates and colleagues, share their photos, discovery fresh context and talk with each other.
However, a fact that what no one knows is Facebook, Google plus and some other companies which operate social networking websites collect a large amount of private information and upload it to the server or cloud.
If the locations of users are illustrated by Google Map in social networking websites or they tell their family or friends where they want to go by Twitter, their personal information has been leaked out. Almost 95% users said they had never set, or even did not know about the privacy settings in the social networking websites. Let’s assume that some users have restricted their information to be seen by friends only, but their friends may send it to others without even knowing it. The social network privacy laws in a lot of countries are extremely weak, and there are even no such laws in some countries.[6] Therefore the users of the social networking websites have few rights to control most of the information that those websites collect from you. Last year we wrote about We Are Social’s huge report on everything internet, mobile and social and the company is back with an even bigger report on trends than last year. In this year’s huge 376 page report, the social marketing agency details how the internet has changed in the last year in-depth.
The company says that there are now half a billion more people online than in the last report, clocking in at 3 billion users and that half of the world is now using a mobile phone, with 185 million new unique users in the last twelve months.

We’d like to say thank you to the creative artists that made this post possible, and for our readers, we hope you enjoyed this post. Got an amazing campaign, web app or a social media related topic that you'd like to share with our readers? At New Milford High School in New Jersey, the school’s official Facebook page keeps its 1,100 fans updated on sports events and academic achievements. Just a few years ago, social networking meant little more to educators than the headache of determining whether to penalize students for inappropriate activities captured on Facebook or MySpace. Though teachers and students are now pushing learning beyond the borders of the classroom through social networking, that move also comes with hurdles, including the fact that many schools still block access to such sites within their walls. But it’s a world that some educators are realizing students feel at home in and is unlikely to disappear.
In some schools, social networking has changed the way educators teach and students learn, says Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano, the 21st-century-learning specialist at the private, K-8 Martin J.
One group of Gottlieb students had just read a book about Orca whales, Tolisano says, and wanted to know more, so they contacted a class in British Columbia, where whale watching is a common pastime. In addition, Skype is so simple to use that just about any teacher can typically handle it with a few minutes of training and minimal equipment.
Social networking can mean using ready-made platforms like Ning or Facebook, but it can also be about networks that schools create specifically for their students.
Social networking among students has become one of Project K-Nect’s most popular features, he says. At New Milford High School, it was the idea of keeping in touch with parents that first prompted Principal Sheninger to look into Twitter during the last school year. While students haven’t become enamored with Twitter yet, it has become a hot spot for educators to find professional development and resources. Social networking is allowing teachers, who often feel isolated in their classrooms, to revolutionize the way they connect with others, says Whitby, a former English teacher who is now an adjunct professor of education for secondary English at St. Whitby says that after the chats, which sometimes receive more than 2,000 tweets in an hour, many educators discuss the topics in greater depth on their blogs. In fact, Ning, a social-networking platform, is full of sites dedicated to different specialties—everything from geography to teaching English as a second language or first-year teachers. On Twitter, Anderson says, he’s constantly being pointed to different Web sites and applications that can aid teachers. Teacher Shelly Terrell, who writes the blog Teacher Reboot Camp, says she’s found value in different types of social-networking sites when it comes to professional development.


In Second Life, a virtual world where users interact as avatars, or electronic representations of themselves, the North Carolina Community College System has developed an island for teachers to show them how to work with audio and video. If she takes teachers to Second Life’s virtual Venice, for example, they can ride a gondola, meet people speaking Italian, and observe the way people dress and the culture. But many educators who see the value in social networking face significant obstacles to incorporating it into their school days. In addition, some district officials remain skeptical that such social-networking tools really benefit education, worried that they just open the door to Internet-security problems and the possibility of cyberbullying. But it remains unclear what all of that means for social-networking tools and sites being used for purely educational purposes. Montana Miller, an assistant professor of popular culture at Bowling Green State University, in Ohio, and a Facebook expert, says not only have educators put their careers at risk with inappropriate exchanges with students on sites like Facebook, but shealso believes it’s not the sort of place for any educational exchange. In fact, most social-networking sites like Facebook and Ning require users to be at least 13 to participate. In Terrell’s case, she had her kindergartners create a book in VoiceThread with a kindergarten class in Turkey.
But Terrell says fears about how to proceed with social-networking sites and tools should not prevent educators from using them. I’m so sick of arguing about privacy online and what social network has the best privacy features. At the end of the day, you’re agreeing to sign up to use a website and agree to what they say. So whatever you post, regardless of the privacy settings, if it’s in a circle, or locked on a website with no visitors, has power.
Jay, I’ve taught my students to assume anything they post will appear on the national news. In my opinion, they’re working feverishly to make it as confusing as possible for average people.
Strange that you picked out the Fresh Prince of Bel-Airheads by name and not a truly talented legend of the cinema.
If thought crime is death, then the Internet really is the answer to immortality, the universe and everything.
I worry about the kids who will grow up with no sense of knowing what private communication is. Yeah, that is true but as long as you are not leaving your personal credit information then I guess you are fine with all these information giving out. Which is why before you sign up for anything, you should ask yourself if you’re comfortable in giving out your data to a particular site. We can now talk to our business partner in China from a coffee-shop in New Jersey, shop for clothes while lying in bed, and even take a leadership course while we’re on vacation. There are numerous alternative apps and tools that you can use and most are free (Facebook messages, Skype or Viber for example). People learn about breaking news on social media, they participate and often times, they create the news. Also, social networking provides academic research to a wider audience, providing many people access to previously unavailable educational resources.
Many networking sites, most prominently LinkedIn, are dedicated to employment opportunities. People can freely share views – no matter what they are — which can spread far and wide, enabling both local and global activism. People are using social networks to interact with health and medical professionals, to learn about healthier lifestyles and choices, and to take better control over their well-being. Social networking allows for open debate on these topics and removes the doubts and misconceptions with regards to them, while paving the road to a more tolerant society. The social media phenomenon has made the world a very small place, giving the cliche “what a small world” a whole new meaning. In fact, reports NEWS, many of the refugees being held there go crazy and end up committing suicide in unconventional and often eerie ways. Brayley, one of the medical officers overseeing the island of Nauru, states that this is because being kept in captivity has negative repercussions on the human mind, and those negative effects take an especially large toll on the more malleable minds of children. Those pre-existing issues, combined with the island’s isolation and harsh conditions, have driven an unbelievably high percentage of people who spend time on Nauru to develop severe mental health problems. The man’s self-sacrifice was timed to coincide with a United Nations Refugee Agency inspection of living conditions on the island. Social networks, including Facebook and Google plus, all guarantee that users’ personal information will be protected properly. In large part as a consequence of development of social networking websites, human’s online life is much similar with real life. Based on this data, people can look for and connect with their childhood friends whose contact details were lost or get something interesting. In this circumstance, a potential burglar may be watching them [4].[4] In addition, almost every user will show their interests in social networking websites and the marketers will provide some commodities which the users are interested in according to the information collected from potential users through those social networking websites.
Actually, even the social network such as Facebook and Google plus tell their users about privacy statements and tutorials of how to use the privacy tools in social network, the users would not bother to check and use them. For instance, most users do not know that Facebook keeps the records when every time users visit a site with a Facebook Like button and then upload it to the server to preserve. One slide in particular I found interesting was the slide below that breaks down internet, mobile and social media users by country.
Here are some fun related cartoons to prove our commitment to covering all aspects of social media!
Born into a well-rounded and educated family igniting her interest in reading, writing and research. Students who traveled to Europe this spring for a tour of Holocaust sites blogged daily about their experiences, and received comments from all over the world. Sheninger, the micro-blogging tool Twitter has become his mainstay for professional development as well as school promotion.
School officials must also confront the uncertainties and questions surrounding privacy issues, proper management, and cyber security when they open their doors to social-networking sites. The goal was to introduce her school’s students to peers in countries around the globe. Within a week, the British Columbia students hopped on a boat and shot video of a pod of Orcas, which they sent to the students in Florida, Tolisano says.
Project K-Nect, a grant-funded program that uses smartphones as teaching tools in a handful of North Carolina school districts, allows students to instant-message their peers and teachers with questions on math homework at any time of the day or night. In fact, the Pew study bears that out: It found that only 8 percent of teenagers online say they ever use Twitter.


Some of the comments, limited to Twitter’s 140 characters per tweet, included a suggestion for rating creativity and innovation.
And if a teacher has a question or needs a recommendation for a site, Twitter can help with instant suggestions. Terrell, who is currently teaching in Germany at the German-American Institute, also holds weekly field trips into the virtual world of Second Life for teachers new to the site. Education officials should also consider other federal laws like the Children’s Internet Protection Act, or CIPA, which requires schools to provide Internet filtering to prevent access by students to offensive content over the Internet, and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, or FERPA, which protects the privacy of student information. That’s why private wikis or blogs or other social-networking tools designed for school use can often be more beneficial in such situations, says Terrell, the teacher and blogger. It doesn’t matter how many privacy settings you and your social network of choice have. The sheer amount of information and data contained in their servers are what will make the kings and queens of this decade.
Someone out these is figuring out a way to mine that data into your next purchasing decision. The past generations fear of sharing information will subside while the new generations demand for transparency will become the new norm. Him, and the cranky old dude that was in that movie with will smith about being monitored by the state or something in the 90’s. But I guess that’s what this era is all about, gettting jiggy and shooting aliens on Co-Dependents Day and whatnot. My biggest worry is that the developing generation will be incrementally brainwashed into a new ant-like mentality, and find it harder and harder to envisage why true privacy is sometimes essential. Unless someone wants to stalk you and hack into the system of the social networks that you use.
Hurricane Sandy is a great example to support the idea that information now flows faster than ever. Social networking sites are also being used to give students a support system at colleges, and to offer teachers a platform for collaboration with other teachers and communication with students outside the classroom.
At the same time, there are several networks like Elance focused on hiring freelancers and finding freelance jobs instantly. From new exercise techniques to diet plans, everything is shared on social media, allowing for a quick and easy spread of public health and safety information from reputable sources. But keep in mind that it’s not so much the social media platform, but rather our usage that defines the effect on the world. In many cases, reports RNZ, the island’s residents have been known to commit mass suicides through inexplicable and painful means, such as ingesting copious amounts of washing powder.
Normally those privacy statements and settings are purposely located at the most obscure positions of their websites. Google also keeps the search records of each user to analyze what will attract them more.[5] This is often done unconsciously, as few people pay attention to their personal information.

Graduated from the Lebanese American University with a bachelor's degree, with honors, in Marketing followed by an MBA.
Other students have used the video voice service Skype to talk to their peers in states like Iowa for school projects. Through Twitter contacts, he formed a partnership with a company that donated technology equipment and training to the school, and he linked up with CBS News, which brought national exposure to the high school’s programs. She built a social-networking site using Ning for teachers from all countries who wanted to participate, eventually attracting 300 members.
Students can also post questions and answers to school math blogs, where a student struggling with algebra could find several classmates willing to walk him or her through a problem or even post video of the best way to solve it. After tweeting to parents for a few months, he began to reach out to other educators and collaborate.
The Pew study found that 37 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds were using Twitter, the largest percentage of any age group.
Moderators choose a topic, and for an hour educators everywhere can ask questions and chime in.
When you create that profile on Google+ or Facebook, you’re giving them information about you. The only people that can get privacy online are super smart nerds that use software to encrypt everything they send and receive. In any event, in terms of privacy, security, and improving the condition of human nature, I award the Web no points, and may Anonymous have mercy on our souls. And if we keep in mind the increased number of online dating and matrimonial services, we can surely agree that social media works wonders when it comes to relationships of all types.
Typically, in the past, referrals were driven by geographic proximity, and the willingness to hire someone from afar became more acceptable only if the connection was through a personal referral. Also, in terms of social change, social media presents diverse opportunities to address to an NGO’s audiences, utilizing methods and messages that meet exact interests and needs. When the Internet was born healthcare information on it was unreliable, but today there’s a wealth of quality information although consumers should not believe everything they read or see – especially when it comes to one’s health!
What continent are you on?) and chat with students in Canada, Finland, New Zealand, and Spain, among a long list of others. Members of New Milford’s student government suggested Sheninger create a Facebook page for the high school instead. That free service allows users to leave voice comments about pictures, video, or drawings, and it enables users to doodle or draw on the screen as they comment.
No matter how much of a stink your raise, until you delete your account and close your contract, it’s their information to use. The ability to create, consume, manipulate and remix information defines the skills of our age.
The good news is, that it is in the best interest of these social networks to keep us signed up and posting so they are working feverishly to avoid a major breach of trust. Social network could be one of the sources that they get you information from, anyway, they are trying to make profits on the stuff they have…. The event was so popular that creators had to set up an EdChat for earlier in the day (starting at noon Eastern time) to accommodate international teachers in differing time zones.
