  • 3. Web 2.0 tools
    Keeping up with the revolution in social networking can seem overwhelming.  This presentation will detail a few Web 2.0 tools others have found useful for personal, professional, and classroom use.
    The Basics:
  • 4. Do you have a FaceBook account?
  • 5. Facebook.com
    Personal: Great for sharing photos and keeping in touch with a lot of friends at once
    Professional: Keep it separate from personal
    Classroom: They’re on FaceBook; make use of it. It can replace the traditional discussion forum.
    Today, over 500 million people worldwide are active on Facebook each month, including 150 million in the United States, with over 500,000 new people joining each and every day
  • 6. Facebook.com
    You need to register and approve those who can view your information.
    You can become a fan of various sites
    There’s a lot of information on FaceBook you can get an account, post nothing personal, and access relevant public information from your account.
    Or set-up a Facebook group for students or staff that does not require “friending.”
    For example, check out ECC’s site

    You can prevent folks from following you but it’s after-the-fact.

    Personal: For enjoyment, entertainment, or sharing
    Professional: Lectures, interviews or items in the news in your field
