We’ve updated the ways you can share TESL Toronto news, events and posts with everyone online through more social networks! Don’t see them? Click on the title of the post (headline), which will take you to the post itself. There they’ll be!
On each new post and page, you’ll see various options that send it to the social network you belong to. No longer are we restricted to just Facebook and Twitter, but now to some other very useful platforms for spreading the word to others. To share, click on the bottom button. The bigger box with a number indicates the number of people who have already shared it!
So what are they? Let me briefly explain (though I highly recommend you click on the social network link to read more about their services yourselves)!
A) Twitter – As a microblogging network, you have 140 characters to express yourself, tweet information you find online and network with global educators (and just about everyone else you can think of). Many language teachers connect their blog posts to this network in order to facilitate interaction between themselves and others. As a start, follow TESL Toronto to get a gist of what you can do.
B) Google+ – One of the newest social networking sites, Google+ allows users to filter information they send to various user-defined “circles” of people, so that unlike Facebook, your education-related messages can be sent only to relevant friends.
C) Stumbleupon – This site is a randomizer of sites based on interests you choose when initially signing up. All you have to do is click the StumbleUpon button, and a new random site pops up. It’s a bit hit or miss, but you can often find websites you’d never find by simply doing a Google search. Clicking on this share button submits the post to StumbleUpon’s database.
D) LinkedIn – Predominantly used as a professional networking site, users profiles typically resemble a CV and networking occurs between those you’ve worked with and helps connect employers and employees together.
E) Digg – This news site contains links submitted by Digg users and popularizes them based on the number of Digg users who click that they like the story submitted.
F) Google Buzz – Integrated with Google’s email accounts, users can share links and start group conversations about the links submitted.
G) Facebook – We all know this one! Click LIKE to show others connect to you on Facebook that you think this post is worth reading. You can also LIKE TESL Toronto as an organisation from our homepage, which will include you in our Facebook page, where posts and news are updated also.
