  • So what exactly isSocial Media? Social media are media for social interaction, using highly accessible and scalable communication techniques. Social media is the use of web-based and mobile technologies to turn communication into interactive dialogue. Andreas Kaplan and Michael Haenlein also define social media as "a group of Internet-based applications that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0, which allows the creation and exchange of user-generated content."[1] Businesses also refer to social media as consumer-generated media (CGM). A common thread running through all definitions of social media is a blending of technology and social interaction for the co-creation of value. via Wikipedia

I believe if they have an actual environment that makes their use of Italian seem “real”, they will be more likely to voluntarily use the language outside of the classroom environment with their peers and possibly “real Italians”We have class on Mondays & Wednesdays. Theymust Twitter in Italian on two other weekdays(their choice of Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays).They must also, once a week, reply to a Tweet ofone of their peers, so that a communication of @iVenus viasorts occurs.
