Social Networking Sites A Web site that provides a virtual community for people to share their daily activities with family and friends, or to share their interest in a particular topic, or to increase their circle of acquaintances. There are dating sites, friendship sites, sites with a business purpose and hybridsthat offer a combination of these. Facebook is the leading personal site, and LinkedIn is the leading business site. Globally, hundreds of millions of people have joined one or more social sites. There are many more like twitter, Google+ etc.
AdvantagesThere will be more pro chatters tonight as most members are keenSN users. CHAT is one of the major advantages of SNs for teachers.SNs have radically changed teachers’ lives. We will never feel aloneagain. Facebook has become a professionally developing site ratherthan just a social network.SN has revolutionized the way we thinkand opened wider perspectives. SNs are global and 24/7.SNs should be harnessed by 21 century teachers with enthusiasm.
More Advantages… Use Facebook for personal contacts and Google+ for PD. SNs are an extension of staffroom chats with links, banter and discussions. ‘Virtualstaffroom”. chat is great as it is an ‘outer of class collaboration’ discussion, as few teachers in the workplace know how to collaborate. SNs create friends which lead to face to face meetings . Share worksheets/mind maps forstudents, time-saving . Twitter tags can inform parents’ of students’ progress.Non-native teachers are also exposed to real language in the modern world. SNs, like Twitter and chat are energizing! Plus, through chat, you find more people to follow! So, start following!!!
DisadvantagesAll SNs are time-consuming . Some teachers find SNs too daunting totackle . SNs can become addictive. They can take over your life, leaving little time for family and friends. Knowing when to stop is crucial – tryto switch off! Replication of themes from one SN to another is annoying.Students become obsessed in finding their teachers on FB and intrude in teachers private lives. Privacy issues with FB AND Twitter – do not accept people you don’t know or protected accounts on Twitter. Tweetdeck often has technical problems. Some make your fake IDs and run it badly.
