I have not been in the classroom for a little while. When I was, I was working in a private college which strictly forbid social media in the classroom beyond the odd relevant YouTube video. Students were of course sneaking onto FaceBook etc. when anyone wasn’t looking until at one point site were blocked. In my personal life, I have enjoyed using social media to gently keep track of family and friends near and far. I do not use it in a professional capacity at this point. I do have to agree with Turkle and others that the fact that we are doing 12 things at once is not always good for our relationships and that we need sometimes to make the effort to stop and engage on a more personal level. The existing opportunities in this market seem endless already, and as some really just starting to explore them, I am not yet sure where the next ventures will go.
