I am teaching a class this semester on the business use of social media (CMWEB141). In broad terms, these sites/ tools enable relationships and information sharing. As the first assignment in class, I asked students to develop a list of social media sites. Obviously, there was more to this assignment than just generating a list of sites (such as explaining the business value of those they identified). I thought it might be appropriate to share my solution (list of sites aspect). The assignment was due yesterday so it seems appropriate to post this information today. For those reading this post, I am curious what sites you would include that I have overlooked (or what sites I have included that you think don’t belong). I realize this is a continually changing landscape. However, I did find it curious that I could identify well over 100 sites without “breaking a sweat.” Obviously not all are extensively used and some are in languages other than English. Still, I thought it might be appropriate to simply collect a list of such sites. If you click on the image below, a new page/ tab will open in your browser and you can click on any of the links to visit the appropriate site. You may note that I have tried to alphabetize these sites. What did I miss?
I look forward to your comments and additional sites.
