Society and Its Use of Social Networking Websites
Asad, Seguya, Md Abdullah Al Mamun, & Che Kum Clement. "The Effect of Social Networking Sites to the Lifestyles of Teachers and Students in Higher Educational Institutions." International Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences [Online], 1.4 (2012): 498-510. This article goes over the relationship between teachers and students in a university setting and how it may be affected by social networking sites in the classroom. This information is reliable because the authors of the articles are researchers at the Islamic University of Technology under the department of technical and vocational education. This would be helpful to my argument because it gives both pros and cons to social networking in a college environment. Conley, Q., Sabo, K.E. & Atkinson, R.K. (2012). “Best Practices for Using Social Media in the Classroom” In P. Resta (Ed.), Proceedings of Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2012 (pp. 4814-4817). Chesapeake, VA: AACE. Theses set of authors wanted to focus on students using social network sites would only enhance their learning but yet still having traditional teachings. This information is reliable because the authors are professors in communication and education at Arizona State University. This would help shape my article because it looks into the growth of education and how it correlates with social networking. I would use this as a pro to using social networks in the classroom. Farkas, Meredith. "In Practice: What Friends Are For" American Libraries Vol. 39, No. 1/2 (Jan. - Feb., 2008): P. 36. Web. Overall, Farkas is trying to emphasize that social network sites gives people access to information through friends and should be looked at as a tool to help in work, personal, etc. This information is reliable because it is an article in the American Libraries magazine and the author is the head of instructional service at Portland State University library and an adjunct faculty member at San Jose State University’s School of Library and Information Science. This would help me shape my argument because it gives another reason to why Facebook and Twitter is a positive effect to society. I would use this article as a pro reason to use social network websites. Feldman, Barbara J. “Pros and Cons of Facebook” 04 March 2011. Surfnetkids.com < http://www.surfnetkids.com/tech/1535/pros-and-cons-of-facebook/> Feldman goes over the pros and cons of Facebook and how people use it. This is a reliable source because Feldman is an online publisher at Feldman Publishing and journalist. I will be using this as an opinion from the public in my argument. It will go for both pro and con to the use of social networking sites. Fouts, Jeffery. “Pros and Cons of Social Media in the Classroom” 25 January 2012. Ols.syr.edu < http://ols.syr.edu/archives/780> Fouts writes about how using social media sites in the classroom can be a distraction, etc. or enhance student engagement, etc. This source is reliable because Fouts is an information technology analyst at Syracuse University. This information is useful to the argument because it helps in expanding the idea as to why or why not schools should allow social media websites into the classroom. I will be using this as more information and reasoning for the argument of using social media websites. Gardner, David “The Marriage Killer: One in Five American Divorces Now Involve Facebook” 01 December 2010. MailOnline.com <http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1334482/The-marriage-killer-One-American-divorces-involve-Facebook.html> Gardner speaks of how social network sites are one of the top leading causes for divorce. This information is reliable because Gardner is a journalist for a newspaper article based out of the UK. This would help shape my argument because it gives a different look at marriage and how it correlates with social...
