On Monday we look at social networking and media and discussed the advantages to using these technologies to stay in touch, read the news, meet new people who share the same as interests as you and even crowdsourcing information to help citizens following a natural disaster (we took a look at a Christchurch earthquake map). You can do a lot more than just share photos of your dinner!
These are the links and videos that we look at on Monday.
