Facebook and Twitter: How to Use Each Profile to Benefit Your Online Education

Facebook and Twitter: How to Use Each Profile to Benefit Your Online Education:

 "In this age of digital communication and 140-word tweets, it can be difficult to view social media as anything more than a complex form of entertainment. It’s a great way to spread information, but the information most of us tend to take in and receive via social media is accurate, at best, and often not very in-depth. However, while online students may think twice about using social media in their academic careers for this reason, the reality is that social media can be an extraordinarily powerful vehicle for students to connect, share, and work together. As with anything else, along with the good also comes the bad, and, as far as social media in academics is concerned, you could make a very strong case that the benefits vastly outweigh any potential negatives."
