Facebook--Good for Your Memory: Twitter--Not So Much

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. She states in the article, Facebook 'enhances intelligence' but Twitter 'diminishes it', claims psychologist The ''instant'' nature of texting, Twitter and YouTube was not healthy for working memory. ''On Twitter you receive an endless stream of information, but it's also very succinct,'' said Dr Alloway. ''You don't have to process that information.

Sometimes people might say: ' Ok, but twitter is not learning. From a behaviourism point of view, twitter might not be very relevant as a means for learning.

But much more noteworthy was the virtual attendance of thousands of additional interested parties courtesy of the video streaming facility which the organisers provided. According to Learning Pool Director Mary McKenna, this was the result of only a few days campaigning on Twitter. If the eLN was to provide a video stream and then archive the recordings it would, like Learning Pool, reach a much greater audience and much more effectively leverage the effort put in by organisers and speakers. In the case of the eLN, it is the cost of providing the video streaming.
