I am a millennial (born between 1978 and 1995) and I have functioned as a faculty member/student affairs practitioner for over 10 years. This blog AND my current research (communication) focuses on: social media in higher education, work-life balance of millennials, and mobile technologies. My administrative research focuses on student success, academic advising, diversity, international students/study abroad, and disability education.
Here's how I use social networking in higher education...
I am friends with my students on Google Plus, but I have made a conscious effort not to become friends with my current students on Facebook. I do not use Google+ for assignments, but I do use Twitter for extra credit assignments.
