Socialising

One of me in SL

This is "me"

It seems a bit duff writing about the same bloke on both my blogs but I really enjoy the stuff he writes about. I was very interested in this particular piece of research, “Got Facebook?” when it first came out. I’m sure that those who read it, like me, were really glad to at last have something good said about social networking sites and Facebook in particular. I don’t use Facebook all that much myself – the way I work fits better with things like Twitter and Academia.edu – but it certainly has a lot to offer.

I have found that I do a lot more socialising now than when I didn’t do any social networking. I find out about new reports, discussions, news quicker than I did before and, more importantly, have a chance to add a comment or join in a discussion far more often than I did before. There is a live discussion going on in the Guardian, “Breaching the digital divide: How could HE better use the Internet“. A very interesting discussion with respected panel members. Not only is it live, you can also read it after the event.

I wish more people would take notice of all the interesting things people are talking about in relation to Digital Literacy – such an exciting time in HE.
