Social network sites SNSs are increasingly attracting the attention of academic and industry researchers intrigued by their affordances and reach. This special theme section of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication brings together scholarship on these emergent phenomena. In this introductory article, we describe features of SNSs and propose a comprehensive definition. We then present one perspective on the history of such sites, discussing key changes and developments. After briefly sum...

While the burgeoning trend in online social networks has gained much attention from the media, few studies in library science have yet to address the topic in depth. This article reports on a survey of 126 academic librarians concerning their perspectives toward Facebook.com, an online network for students. Findings suggest that librarians are overwhelmingly aware of the “Facebook phenomenon.” Those who are most enthusiastic about the potential of online social networking suggested ideas for usi...

In the past five years, social networking sites have rocketed from a niche activity into a phenomenon that engages tens of millions of internet users. More than half of all online American youths aged 12-17 use online social networking sites, according to this national survey. The survey finds that older teens, particularly girls, are more likely to use these sites. For girls, the sites are primarily places to reinforce pre-existing friendships; for boys, they also provide opportunities for flir...

Participants who accessed the Facebook website of a teacher high in self-disclosure anticipated higher levels of motivation and affective learning and a more positive classroom climate. In their responses to open-ended items, participants emphasized possible negative associations between teacher use of Facebook and teacher cred...

Large numbers of college students have become avid Facebook users in a short period of time. In this paper, we explore whether these students are using Facebook to find new people in their offline communities or to learn more about people they initially meet offline. Our data suggest that users are largely employing Facebook to learn more about people they meet offline, and are less likely to use the site to initiate new connections.

Abstract This paper makes a comparison between using social media or traditional Course Management System (CMS) discussion groups in a fully online Principles of Microeconomics course. Students were randomly assigned to a discussion forum in either Facebook or CMS to discern a difference in the level of engagement and learning outcomes. The popular hypothesis is that students using social media have greater engagement with the class and higher learning outcomes relative to students using a CMS p...

Abstract Social networks have become an indispensable activity in people’s lives. A number of previous studies have investigated various social networks and probed in the core knowledge of integrated social networks. While social network knowledge is general and extensive, few studies have delved into the core knowledge of individual social networks, especially Facebook, which is a social network with over 1.7 billion users worldwide. Therefore, this study aimed to elaborate on the core knowledg...

Abstract The primary objective of this research was the development of a problem-based learning model using a virtual learning environment (VLE) for undergraduate students in the Photography for Communication Arts course. The model supports and enhances students' learning, achievements and problem-solving skills. An efficiency test for the model revealed an above average set of criteria at 80/83.93, which conformed to the research hypothesis. The principles of instructional systems design (ISD) ...

Social networking sites (SNS) are a popular Internet-based technology that enable users to communicate and interact with each other. SNS have attracted a great deal of scholarly attention and have been used as an educational tool in recent years. However, there has been little research examining motivations and obstacles to teaching with SNS in higher education. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate why faculty members in higher education prefer to use or not to use SNS for educ...

This study investigated the effects of students' learning styles on intention to use a social media-enabled tool, entitled Book2U. The focus was on three learning styles, that is, collaborative, independent and participative. Book2U was developed using the Push---Pull---Mooring theory, whilst the questionnaire used for data collection was based on five factors: Academic Reasons, Social Networking, Convenience, Self-efficacy and Ease of Use. Multi-group path modelling was administered on each gro...

This study investigated the factors that affect the intention to use social media for learning among students from the higher learning institutions. A Social Media Acceptance Model was developed by adapting factors from the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology and the E-Learning Acceptance Model (ELAM). A total of 300 students (Mage = 25.9, SDage = 4.28) participated in an online survey. Both exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses revealed six factors that affect the intentio...
