© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Blogging 21
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Twitter Micro-blogging 140 characters or less Can follow people Receive their "tweets" Selected friends' tweets sent to phone Can use Twitter to update your Facebook status 22
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Twitter Concerns Privacy Do you really want the whole world to know your whole family is out of town? Noise Do you really need to read updates from that many people in a single day? Content Spammers and pornographers using Twitter to promote their content Can block any followers you want 23
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Twitter 24
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Professional networking Very valuable service LinkedIn Think of your Rolodex, but online Your old work buddy moves, you don't lose track of him Very little downside 25
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking More than 300 social networking sites of this type Membership in personal social networking sites is approaching 1 billion people Facebook, MySpace About 250 million users each 26
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking Most popular sites Facebook – 250 million MySpace – 250 million Habbo – 120 million Friendster – 90 million hi5 – 80 million Tagged – 80 million Orkut – 70 million 27
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking Two broad types: 1. Provide interactions for people who already know each other Not cool to approach strangers Facebook, LinkedIn 2. Help people to meet who don't already know each other Encouraged to meet new "friends" MySpace, most other sites 28
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking Positive value is huge… Sharing family photos, news, and other information with a trusted network of friends Some of whom are remote Reconnecting with long lost friends Two of my favorite missionary companions with very generic names, made contact in the last 3 months via Facebook! After almost 30 years 29
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking Downside is significant Meeting "friends" that you don't know in real life is obviously problematic Reconnecting with long lost friends That were maybe best left in the lost past Privacy concerns are always significant Predator issues Especially for the youth 30
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking Addiction concerns Content Despite terms and conditions, there is a large amount of pornography or other inappropriate material on most social networking sites Obsessing and time wasting Youth especially suffer from social networking withdrawal Digital equivalent of hanging out at the mall 31
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking "During the 2006 power outage in L.A., MySpace was down for about twelve hours. It was a dark, dark time in more ways than one. However, the outage has helped me to identify my addiction to MySpace. While it was out, I kept checking to try and log in until finally I got in there, and I breathed a sigh of relief. I read my boring e-mails and felt at ease." – Jassa, 17, from "Generation MySpace" by Candice M. Kelsey 32
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking Sites have their own personalities and value systems You can learn by checking them out Read their policies and Online Safety pages Two examples… 33
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking 34 Tagged.com – "Online Safety"
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking 35 Orkut.com – "Advice for Parents"
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking How does the site make you feel spiritually? What sorts of things are they promoting on the front page? Some examples… 36
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life" "Find your friends and meet new people" – Tagged "orkut is an online community designed to make your social life more active and stimulating. orkut's social network can help you maintain existing relationships with pictures and messages, and establish new ones by reaching out to people you've never met before." 37
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking "Meet people from all around the world" – hi5 "Friendster is focused on helping people stay in touch with friends and discover new people and things that are important to them." "Connect with friends and meet new people. Hang out, throw parties, join groups, post in forums."– Habbo 38
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Personal social networking Do they promote profiles of some of their users? What are these users portraying? Generally, promoting user profiles gives a sort of "meat market" feel to the site Often immodesty or other teaser content in these user profiles 39
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson User profiles Most social networking sites include: Personal information – "Profile" Friends Blogs Chat, messages, and email Discussion groups Pictures and images Streaming video Streaming music Message boards Combines all other social networks 40
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Some statistics More than 10% of teenagers have posted a nude or seminude picture of themselves or others online 2% of parents surveyed said that about their teens At least a quarter of the young people polled had posted something they later regretted 22 percent saying they check their sites more than 10 times a day 4% of parents surveyed said that about their teens 54 percent of teens demonstrate risky behavior online 41
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Social network guidelines Be very selective when it comes to being involved in a social network My take is that Facebook is by far the most tame, and the safest Still doesn't make it the right choice for you and your family 42
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Social network guidelines Profiles Do not provide full information Birth year, SSN, or other identifying information Keep all profiles private always! Unless you're a public figure and the profile is a public face for your admiring fans Remember that anything you post is essentially permanent 43
© 2009 Charles D. Knutson Social networking guidelines Parents Monitor where your kids are and what they are doing Determine age specific guidelines for your household Still doesn't assume unfettered access! If your kids are on a social network… Join the network and add them as a friend All other parental guidelines for technology access apply… 44
