The role of social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook in language learning.
How can Facebook and Twitter be used in education and especially in language education?
I have to admit that I make little use of Facebook or Twitter for my own communication with people, whether for personal relations or business contacts. I do broadcast my posts here at my blog to Twitter and Facebook, however, and I sometimes get comments from one or the other. At LingQ we have a community of language learners who do contact each other via their Walls, talk to each other on Skype, or comment on our Forums. These people all have a common interest in languages.
On the other hand I have this feeling that spending a lot of time on Facebook and Twitter can be time consuming and somewhat aimless activities. I do not see how I would use them for my own language learning, or any kind of learning. Is this just a generational thing? Am I just too old to understand?
