“Is Twitter Hurting Your Grades?” Infographic

Posted by reyjunco on May 17, 2011 in Commentary, Research |

Two weeks ago I posted my thoughts and additional research evidence in response to the “Is Social Media Ruining Students?” infographic. I’ve often hoped that someone would create an infographic that used my data but that also didn’t jump to sensational conclusions. Looks like someone did just that– this infographic uses data from our Twitter study. What I’d really love to see is an infographic that summarizes an academic paper– that is, not only represents the interesting findings, but also the limitations. There’s only one way to do that: by teaming the artist up with the researcher.

I’ve got the data, do you have the skills? Drop me a line.

College Students: Is Twitter Hurting Your Grades?

    Prof. Junco, Did you in any way authorize the use of your paper or your data in the creation of the Twitter infographic by master-degree-online.com?  Just curious.  I found it on the socialnomics site (http://bit.ly/mPDb0w) but without attribution to you.  I literally had to use the Windows magnifyer to even see the sources reference to find your blog.

  • No Terry, I didn’t. They clearly referenced where they got the information. Unfortunately, infographics are a new marketing strategy; I’ve yet to be impressed with the accuracy of the ones focusing on social media and education.
