Future of Social Media – A Class Exercise #Manship4002

  1. 1. Future of Social Media –AClass Exercise Let’s pretend – you are charged with coming up with a design for a new social media platform that allows teachers/faculty to better connect with students for engagement inside/outside classroom What will your social media platform look like? Things to consider: Name Immediacy – How immediate is the platform? More like a blog or a live chat? Posting format – How long are the posts? What do they look like? Media richness – What type of content is there? Multimedia? Interactivity – How interactive is the platform? Spreadability – How is content shared / spread? What degree of self-disclosure is required? A large profile section like Facebook? A short bio? No profile information? Is it a content community (a platform mainly to help students and teachers share content?) Is it a collaborative project, like a Wiki? How is content ordered? Up-votes? Timeline? Posts by “friends”? Categories (questions vs. comments vs. homework sections?) Something else? Privacy / Access – privacy and access might be a big deal in this context. What do the privacy settings look like? Open like Twitter? More exclusive? User-Interface – What does the social media platform look like? Is it simple? Can you post in multiple formats? Search / Keywords – How is content searchable? Are their hashtags or other categories? Can you tag people in posts?
