Social media tools for training: Facebook and Google+
Monday, February 3 2014
Facebook is a social network for connecting people with those around them – friends, family, co-workers, or simply others with similar interests. Facebook is a tool for connecting people with those around them. And, as with any social media tool, business has an opportunity to use Facebook to expand their online footprint and directly engage with customers and prospects.
A recent entry into the social network scene, Google+ supports users to share stories with their Interest group Circles, get involved in discussions, post photos, and participate in video conference calls (called Hangouts) with up to 10 people. Google+ makes it easy to segregate who you follow into specific circles that reflect your interests – personal, business, industry thought leaders, hobbies or research etc.
In this session, we’ll explore how Facebook and Google+ can be harnessed in the teaching and learning environment.
