Assignment 5

(Translation in Italian)

Facebook is invading Italy too. I do not like very much facebook because it is a closed environment. More precisely, I do not like the fact that it is an environment that offers a whole set of web 2.0 functionalities and at the same time it is run by a company. I have nothing against companies, in principle; most of the popular web 2.0 are run by companies. I don’t like the fact that a lot of activities take place in a space that is controlled by just one company. I prefer the most open situation where people use different tools to do web 2.0 activities.

However, it is a fact that many of you are on facebook and I’m there too, in some ways. Therefore, let us try to investigate this fact. I propose the following.

  • If you have a facebook address include it in the google spreadsheet where you are tracking your activities
  • Write a post telling how have you been involved in facebook, what do you think of it and if you use it for some peculiar tasks
  • If you are not on facebook, write a post telling if you know something about it and if you are using some other social networking tools
  • If you have ideas to use facebook in some school-related activities write them; it seems in Internet there is a great deal of stuff like that

Finally, are there some of you willing to organize a survey in this whole classroom to know who is using facebook, myspace, deviantart, windows live, twitter and other social networking tools? If yes, put a comment on this post outlining your intentions: what to include in the survey, how to do it, how to organize data. If more than one would like to do this we will try to cooperate.

    Vanno bene ambedue i modi. Si potrebbe prima fare una pagina wiki dove le persone possono scrivere cosa usano, magari salta fuori qualche cricuito di social networking strano che a noi non viene in mente. Ilaria tu potresti confezionare la pagina e poi io la pubblicizzo. Poi, dopo un po’ che si sono accumulati i dati, tu Matteo, potresti provare a fare un form da inviare a tutti dove ciascuno può specificare cosa usa. Potrebbero andare bene per esempio le caselle su cui fare il check, credo che ci siano. Poi io spedisco il modulo. Il foglio di lavoro che ne verrà fuori lo metterò a disposizione di tutti e potrete esercitarvi ad elaborare i dati come volete, estrarre grafici e così via.

    Oppure altre idee … vanno sempre bene … 🙂

    hi! why don’t we use our amazing wiki pages and create a list of who is using what?
    for ex:
    Ilariabu: facebook, myspace, twitter

    then, at a certain date, we can even create a chart of this survey…

    it’s just my own idea…
