Kapp Notes

A study recently released by Dr. Tracy Alloway of Scotland’s University of Stirling found that using Facebook stretches a person's “working memory” (short-term or recent memory), while Twitter, YouTube and text messaging tend to weaken it.

My professional use of social media and communication tools

Challenge to Learn

Flipboard is a mobile app that creates a magazine like interface on several streams. These streams can be fed by other tools like Twitter, Linkedin and Google reader and I love it. I have a private Facebook account too, but I hardly use it. We now use Facebook more for announcements and things like that. Maybe I use too many of them. Blogs, writing and reading.

Our Take on Google+

E-learning Uncovered

If I were to start over, I could see using Google+ over Facebook or Twitter. JU: I think it’s the best of Twitter plus the best of Facebook. But Google+ also encourages deeper communication by having no character limit and keeping the whole conversation in one place (one strength of Facebook). The comparison to Facebook is tougher. For me, the biggest difference between Facebook and Google+ is really a mindset, not a specific feature. I’ve never been a fan of adding professional contacts in Facebook. Are you using Google+ yet? But, I don’t.

Facebook? How? Why?

Learning Rocks

Partly because I've been busy, but partly because, inspired by Drew Meyers , I joined Facebook a few weeks ago - after all, who could resist a line like "How Facebook is completely changing the internet." Ever since I have had a steady stream of people getting in touch. What I'm less certain about is the idea that Facebook itself is the ideal place to do this (or here or here ). I've been out of the loop for a while. I wasn't alone. Quite simply, it's amazing. Equally, the idea that I should self-censor in order to avoid trouble is equally worrying.
