Question: "What is your favorite social network?"
Audience: Mostly educators
N = Roughly 50
Highly Scientific: Duh
Nevertheless, I'm in agreement with the findings. My favorite social network is also Twitter. I enjoy:
- The conversation
- The randomness
- The sense of community
- The human, personal nature of the network
My take on the others:
- Ning - Great for classes, events, or other activities that can benefit from a focused discussion forum. One thing I don't like: It's usually a little choppy.
- Facebook - I love Scrabulous and Chess. What's not to like about asynchronous play? Except losing all the time.
- The Blogosphere - This is a social network that can eat up hours of time, every day, if you let it. Interestingly, not many people consider (or remember to consider) the blogosphere as a social network.
