About

I am an Educational Developer and Associate Lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University. My research interests include the use of social media, digital literacies and online presence. Currently a focus of my work is on the use of social media within higher education.

The aim of this blog is to introduce you to what social media is. I hope it will give you an overview of some of the current popular social media tools that can be used for communication, collaboration and for sharing multimedia.

The Conversation Prism by Brian Solis and JESS3 is an infographic that demonstrates just some of the wide variety of social media tools that are available.

The world map of social networks is an infographic that tries to capture by country the most popular social networks. Whilst Facebook would seem to dominate most of the world, within countries like China and Russia this is  not the case. However the use of social networks across the globe has become a mainstream activity.
