Very interesting information here, Brad. I didn't realize weekends are the best days to tweet -- I'm surprised, actually. Thanks for sharing this post!
Thank you for writing this great post, Joey! Now, I have something tangible to share with my students about this topic. I teach comm courses at Rider University and, every time we talk about social media, I try to hammer home the message that they need to be CAREFUL and SAFE and SMART in the online environment -- a place where they're so comfortable because, as you say, they've been on social media since "before they were born." But, frankly, we all need to be reminded about this issue and the fact that the "Internet never forgets." Thanks, again!
For the past few years, and more heavily in the last two semesters, I've incorporated social media (specifically blogging and Twitter) lessons and introductory information in my "COM107 Persuasive Writing for the Media" class at Rider University (www.rider.edu). My students really seem to enjoy taking a "business approach" to using social media. (Naturally, they're already pros at posting their personal lives on Facebook, etc.) Last semester, I was accused of creating a few new "Twitter addicts"! ;-)
Like @eric_wheeler said, social media is fully integrated into the PR profession, and today's students need to be prepared for their future careers. Thanks for a great post, Claire!
