    11. 11. We’ve got mail...? With all those other applications, you get to choose what appears. Twitter? You get to choose who you follow. (Even, if you want, who gets to follow you.) On Facebook, you choose who is your friend, and how much of your profile they can see; you choose when you update stuff; whether you join groups; what emails you get. Instant messaging? You choose conversations, pick what your status is. Blogging? If you've nothing to write, you don't write. (And any sensible blog lets you either moderate comments first or delete them afterwards.) Email is, let's just accept it, broken in concept and in practice. And that is why people have embraced Twitter so wholeheartedly. It lets them talk only to the people they want to, and to swap information as they like. You can even create secret networks within it – just set up a group of people with protected updates who only follow each other.

    16. 16. References Our investigations have shown that social software tools support a variety of ways of learning: sharing of resources (eg bookmarks, photographs), collaborative learning, problem-based and inquiry-based learning, reflective learning, and peer-to-peer learning. Students gain transferable skills of team working, online collaboration, negotiation, and communication, individual and group reflection, and managing digital identities. Although these tools enhance a student’s sense of community, sharing and collaboration brings in additional responsibility and workload, which some students find inflexible and rather ‘forced’. The study found that students have concerns about privacy and the public nature of the tools for their academic activities. JISC:2009
    17. 17. References Social software is a class of networked tools that support and encourage individuals to learn together while retaining individual control over their time, space, presence, activity, identity and relationship (Anderson, 2005). Social software enables communication between groups where the members are made aware of what other groups are doing, and where each member of the group benefits. Further, social software allows gathering and sharing resources to inform others and receive feedback. JISC:2009
