Facebook vs Twitter

Well I have been looking at Facebook and trying to update things and contact people that I know or used to know at least. My husband is really a technology “geek” as he puts it. He has been using Facebook forever and his new thing is Twitter. I have tried to check out the site and found that it is similar to Facebook in a way that you are always putting your status on there so people can keep up with what you are doing or thinking throughout the day. My husband loves this site and is constantly checking it. I have mixed feelings about this site and it is really confusing to me. I guess I think I have to play around with it some more.

When asking my husband about it, he said it is basically a site to post thoughts and what you are thinking at that time. He said facebook has a lot more bs to it. You always have people sending you vegetables, or challenging you to tasks, or silly stuff like that. Where as Twitter is a site that you are just asking for opinions and thoughts from others that you know.

So does anyone else have any thoughts about these two sites. I am open to hearing others opinions.

I really haven’t spent a lot of time on there but with this assignment I have found myself checking it quite often. I really don’t like using SNS’s because most of the people I communicate with I talk to on the phone. But I can easily see how this can be addictive.

With the new advances in technology, education has become more broad. With the advancements teachers are able to present new and more indetailed information to the students. Also with the advancements made you are able to present material to students in a variety of ways. Ways in which were not available some time ago. Students learn in different ways and by having different forms of technology, you can present the material to students in ways that they can understand and remember easier. So learning has become easier for those students that are willing and wanting to learn. Also technology allows students to reach or be exposed to students of different cultures.

Sorry for the inconvience.
