Myspace induction

Moodle Journal

Upon ending the presentation rather than give out advice on pre-start of courses reading, I asked them to get a Myspace account, fill out all the categories and be sure to post comments to at least two from others. My plans are that the Social networking aspects of Myspace will not only form the first point for an ongoing trend of collaboration but be the foundation in forming an online presence and identity The HND course officially started today with an induction.

Cyworld: Myspace, Flickr, Blogger, AIM, and SecondLife in ONE

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

To an American eye, the Cyworld service looks like a mixture of some of the hottest US properties: it's MySpace meets Flickr and Blogger and AIM and Second Life. Cyworld has penetration rates that would make Rupert Murdoch, CEO of MySpace parent News Corp. It looks like the future of Social networking is going to come from Korea in the form of a tool called Cyworld. O'Reilly has a long post referencing the Business2.0 article on the topic covering many angles.

MyFace or SpaceBook?

Learning with e's

A recent US research project (by a PhD student mind you) has reported that users of FaceBook are generally toffs from wealthier homes and are more likely to study in further/higher education than that great unwashed working class lot who like using MySpace. I used to have a MySpace , but abandoned it because FaceBook was easier to use. I subsequently found out that more of my friends were using it than MySpace, so it made social networking easier. So it's official.

Viva la difference

Learning with e's

Yesterday I blogged that there was little or no difference between FaceBook and MySpace, principally because I thought there was no difference between the social class profiles of users.

One degree of connection

Learning with e's

Technology, and in particular, popular social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and Orkut have made connections between people much easier, more immediate, and certainly a lot richer in terms of experience. My own opinion is that Facebook, MySpace and their ilk have certainly facilitated greater social connectivity and reduced the level of separation between like minded people by aiding the formation of transient self-organised communities of interest.

Bored to tiers

Social Network = Social Class?

Kapp Notes

Anna Owens says "MySpace has one population, Facebook has another." A study by market research firm Nielsen Claritas found that people in more affluent demographics are 25 percent more likely to be found friending on Facebook , while the less affluent are 37 percent more likely to connect on MySpace.
