  2. 2. We are social beings “Human beings are social creatures–not occasionally or by accident but always. Sociability is one of our core capabilities, and it shows up in almost every aspect of our lives as both cause and effect. Society is not just the product of its individual members; it is also the product of its constituent groups” (Clay Shirky, Here comes everybody, 2008)
  3. 3. Social Media as a global phenomenon Internet users continue to spend more time with social media sites than any other type of site. (Nielsen, State of the Media: the Social Media Report, 2012)
  4. 4. Social Media as a Space to Learn We need to live and teach and learn where the students live and teach and learn. That means that we have to stop blocking to their spaces and go to their spaces. So we explore their world. (Stephen Downes, Groups vs Networks, 2007)
  5. 5. What is Social Media? Social media refers to the means of interaction among people in which they create, share, and/or exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks. (Toni Ahlqvist, Social Media Roadmaps, 2012)
