Microblogging Comparison

 

Academic

Business

Announcements:  Easy way for teachers to push out information for the class

Building Brand Awareness:  Easy/cheap platform to build your “brand.”  Upcoming events/promo.

Ability to learn about each other/personalization

Grow Network:  Once one person follows, then all their connections can view it and could follow as well.  Almost like the pyramid effect

Allows the “quiet” students to get involved if conducting peer review, etc

Easy Feedback:  At the user’s finger tips

Student collaboration

Announcements:  Easy way to push out important information/recalls

Post assignments for students and parents to see

Clear and Concise information/messages (300 character limit)

Live documents/posts

 

                   

Possible high return on investment:  low cost to start up, just need to keep up with comments for currency

Possibility for outsider/industry inputs
