Exploring Social Media

For our first computer activity, we’re going to figure out what some of the most popular social media are like and what they’re used for.

To start, go to http://www.pinterest.com and start browsing Pinterest. While you do this, try to answer the following questions:

  • Who uses Pinterest?
  • What do people use Pinterest for?
  • Is Pinterest useful?
  • Do you use Pinterest?
  • What would/do you use Pinterest for?

Once you have finished with Pinterest, do the same thing on the following social websites:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Youtube
  • Instagram
  • LinkedIn
  • Flickr
  • Tumblr
  • Vibo

Follow-up questions (please e-mail your responses to jwhite@gvenglish.com):

  1. Which social media do you use?
  2. Are you interested in signing up for any of the social media sites you looked at today?
  3. Which social media sites would you be interested in focusing on in class?
