  4. 4. WHATSAPP WHATSAPP IS A MOBILE MESSAGING APPLICATION THAT ALLOWS USERS TO EXCHANGE MESSAGES WITHOUT HAVING TO PAY FOR SMS. PROS • WHATSAPP IS A CROSS PLATFORM APP WHICH MEANS IT AVAILABLE ON ALL MAJOR OPERATING SYSTEMS. • WHATSAPP USES YOUR CURRENT PHONE NUMBER SO NO LOGINS ARE REQUIRED, YOUR CONTACTS ARE ALSO SYNCED. • NOT ONLY CAN YOU SEND TEXT BUT VIDEO AND AUDIO MESSAGES CAN BE SENT AS WELL. CONS • WHEN A PHONE CALL IS MADE, STANDARD CARRIER RATES APPLY, UNLIKE VIBER AND GOOGLE HANGOUTS. • THERE IS A SMALL 99 CENT/YEAR FEE ASSOCIATED WITH WHATSAPP AFTER THE FIRST YEAR OF USE. • YOU CAN’T DOWNLOAD WHATSAPP ON YOUR PC SO YOU CAN’T COMMUNICATE WITH PEOPLE WHO DON’T OWN A SMARTPHONE.

ILEARN Pros • Accessibility, available to all SFSU students, free. • Convenience. • Communication, uses threads to easily display conversation. • Collaboration tools like text and web conferencing available. Cons • Instructor’s permission needed for video chat. • Availability is limited due to frequent updates on school website. • Support is only available during office hours. iLearn is SFSU’s default website for students to use with classes.

  7. 7. SKYPE Pros • Skype is less expensive than alternative modes of communication, such as telephone calls and voice mail. • You can receive messages from landline phone calls through Skype and it is not restricted to computer communication. • Skype allows for face-to-face conversations, which can make business interactions more interactive. • Unlike face time, Skype is not restricted to Apple hardware and could be accessed on virtually any type of operating system. • Groups of 10 people can communicate simultaneously. Cons • Since Skype uses voice over Internet protocol (VoIP), Internet access is necessary for at least one person. • Skype is susceptible to viruses and hackers. Users personal information can be stolen. • Since Skype is a new form of communicating there is a learning curve involved with using this medium.
  8. 8. GOOGLE DRIVE Pros • Free to use until users hit large storage limit • Reliable due to being offered by Google • Available for use on multiple platforms • Allows users to upload files for storage and sharing • Secure and private • Offers version control • Has other uses like word processing and video conferencing Cons • Once storage limit is hit you must delete files or pay for more • Requires an internet connection unless files are downloaded beforehand • No notifications upon updates
