How do the concepts and findings in these sections of the OCLC report reflect your view of the socially networked world in 2014?
It has been over 6 years since the publication of the 2007 OCLC report, and over that period, I am sure that the divide between digital natives and digital immigrants has narrowed much further. Since the generation of users who were born before the internet adopting various types of digital technologies.
I am a digital immigrant who has a keen desire to learn and apply Web 2.0 tools in order to improve my skills and to catch up with my students who are digital natives.
Nowadays, the focuses of internet activities have moved from information search and exploration towards creating information and contributing to others. This is made easy by new and friendlier social network sites such as Facebook, which has overtaken MySpace since the publication of the OCLC report.
Through the readings, it is useful to note the difference between social network sites and social media sites. It is interesting to note that since 2007, YouTube is the most popular social media sites by country and by age group. There are many popular sites which I have never heard. It is very interesting to see that each country has different trends and chooses to adapt different social network.
