Used as an educational tool, educators can use these sites for classroom discussions beyond the classroom, uniting students that might not have crossed paths otherwise (Lederer, 2012). Promotional advertisement for the college itself for students that are still searching for right college, and for current students, it can advertise activities on and off campus. Students and companies can use their social networking sites for networking. Many companies have their own sites, which is a great source of information to jobseekers (Lederer, 2012).
Just like everything in life, there is a good side and a bad side. There is a lack of privacy when using social networking sites, you never know who is looking at your profile. These sites can also be very distracting. Outside subjects may take away from the learning experience (Lederer, 2012). Shy students may become more antisocial, using the site as a safety net (Lederer, 2012). The number one disadvantage to all social networking sites is cyberbullying. This problem can be nipped in the bud if the schools themselves provided a report abuse/bullying link on the school website. This action along with the schools implementing a disciplinary action plan for the offenders.
These are the steps used to develop a system (Ranier & Cegielski, 2011).
System investigation calls for a feasibility study: evaluation of system to pinpoint needs or problems. System analysis is an analysis to identify specific requirements. System design is the system’s blueprint. Programming and testing. The system is installed and is actually tested by actual users to work out any kinks. Implementation: convert from old system to new system and train employees to work new system. Operation and maintenance: input from employees will be used to keep system running smoothly while still working out kinks.
