Social Networking

The phenomenal growth of social networking in recent years, and more recently, the massive interest in, and uptake of, real-time applications in social media eg. Twitter, are contributing to new trends in lifelong learning, business, marketing, entertainment and more.

This Slideshare presentation, 'Integrating Social Networking & Web 2.0 Applications into e-Learning ', by Rob Gibson provides an overview of a range of social networking & social media applications and examples of potential use in an educational context. A good starting point for increasing awareness and for educators considering the role of new tools, web applications and strategies in an e-learning environment.
