Teacher vs Student: How Each Actually Uses Social Media

According to the handy infographic below, which details how both teachers and students view some of the more popular social media platforms. Facebook is for old people (according to students). And with just about the expected amount of no surprise, teachers and students see each platform quite differently. Teachers’ favorites are not student favorites, and vice versa. And those that are popular with both are not necessarily for the same reasons.

So is there one platform that ‘wins’ with both students and teachers? My guess is that it is probably Twitter. Both teachers and students use it pretty actively, and it can easily be used in the classroom.

Do you agree? What do you think is the most ‘all-around’ social media platform for both teachers and students (in and out of class)?
