Social Apps, By Default, Are Hijacking Facebook. After noticing that my friends in Facebook were posting EVERY song they listened to, EVERY video they watched and EVERY link they decided to share I was just about ready to delete my account due to all the “noise” of these lifestream sorts of postings.

Social Apps, By Default, Are Hijacking Facebook

Increasingly social apps like Socialcam, Spotify, Google Play and most others have set, as a default if you connect your Facebook or Twitter accounts, to go ahead and auto-post EVERYTHING the app does to your Facebook news feed! The result is a steady stream of stuff I don’t care to read or to see from an accelerating number of friends and family who are starting to use these social apps. Socialcam's Facebook settings (click for larger view) This morning my sister commented under a rant I did within Facebook (imploring people to go in to app settings and to please disable auto-posting to Facebook) and she pointed out she was seeing EVERYTHING posted from my Socialcam app. Sigh.

A team headed by Wilhelm Hofmann of Chicago University's Booth Business School say their experiment, using BlackBerrys, to gauge the willpower of 205 people aged between 18 and 85 in and around the German city of Würtzburg is the first to monitor such responses "in the wild" outside a laboratory.

The results will soon be published in the journal Psychological Science. "Modern life is a welter of assorted desires marked by frequent conflict and resistance, the latter with uneven success," said Hofmann. The researchers found that as the day wore on, willpower became lower. Hofmann added: "We made clear to participants that answering the BlackBerrys did not count.

Online social networks as formal learning environments: Learner experiences and activities

Navarrete University of Texas at Austin, USA Abstract While the potential of social networking sites to contribute to educational endeavors is highlighted by researchers and practitioners alike, empirical evidence on the use of such sites for formal online learning is scant. To fill this gap in the literature, we present a case study of learners’ perspectives and experiences in an online course taught using the Elgg online social network. Findings from this study indicate that learners enjoyed and appreciated both the social learning experience afforded by the online social network and supported one another in their learning, enhancing their own and other students’ experiences. Keywords: Online learning; learner experience; online learning environments; online social networks; social networking sites; Elgg Introduction Review of Relevant Literature Our review of the literature suggests that SNSs hold promise for online education.

Facebook Data Team Shows Diversity and Roots of Information Network

The Facebook Data Team examined users' strong ties and weak ties by the number of comments, messages and photos people have in common. It turns out, those old friends and acquaintances you only see at reunions, influence your media consumption more than you might think. Don't discount the memes or news links your weak-tie friends share. You see those a lot. Researchers cite that you are 10-times more likely to share "novel content," that you would otherwise have not seen, from a weak-tie friend. "In short, weak ties have the greatest potential to expose their friends to information that they would not have otherwise discovered," states the study.

Facebook Is Making Us Miserable - Daniel Gulati

Some seven years and 800 million users later, the social network has taken over most aspects of our personal and professional lives, and is fast becoming the dominant communication platform of the future. But this new world of ubiquitous connections has a dark side. In my last post, I noted that Facebook and social media are major contributors to career anxiety. After seeing some of the comments and reactions to the post, it’s clear that Facebook in particular takes it a step further: It’s actually making us miserable.

Expect a lot of announcements from major news vendors that are participating. It's probably going to be all of them, and probably governments and educational institutions as well. People say they don't like that they're using what has become RSS trade dress. I have no standing to ask them not to use the icons. The answer isn't to stop Facebook, even if you could. So this is a good time to think and communicate, and then quickly, do. <a href=" the forum thread. Is Facebook Stifling the Free Flow of Information? Struggling to get to sleep last night, I caught this whilst listening to episode 124 of This Week in Google from a few weeks ago (45 mins or so in to the original; I’ve excerpted the relevant bit below): The first thing that grabbed my attention was that Importing a blog or RSS feed to your personal Facebook account is no longer available.

Is Facebook Stifling the Free Flow of Information?

Facebook’s recommendation is to “Use Facebook Notes to customize your blog posts in a rich format that’s compatible for readers on Facebook, [or] [l]ink directly to your blog posts from your status”. Pretty much the only interaction I have with Facebook is (or rather, was) to automatically syndicate my OUseful.info blog posts via an RSS through my Facebook Notes application. This didn’t generate many views, clickthrus or trackbacks, but it did generate some, and now, it seems, I’m no longer posting blog post links to my Facebook friends. So much for frictionless sharing, huh? Like this: Like Loading...
