Social Media Platforms for Students

We’ve recently launched two new social media platforms that we’d love you to share with students.   

Our Adobe Students UK Facebook page and Adobe UK Students Twitter profile are places where we’ll post up the latest Adobe news, offers, tips, videos and sneaks – as well as mixing in general student culture.

We’d like to turn these social networking locations into interactive sites where we can engage with students and understand their perspective of Adobe, our products and education generally. So please share.

Follow Jon Perera on Twitter

Jon Perera recently joined Adobe’s Worldwide Education team as VP for marketing. He’s very keen to increase his followers so I’ve added a Twitter feed on the blog and you can also follow Jon directly @ jon_perera

Here’s a flavour of the education tweets that Jon has posted in the past couple of days.

Social Networking and Twitter

A recent study suggested that advertising through social networking media is not only cheaper, but more cost effective than a national advertising campaign. That’s certainly true if trying to attract the attention of the younger generation. Here are a few factoids that may be of interest:

  • 96% of millennials have joined a social network (people born since 1970)
  • Social media is the #1 activity on the Web
  • 80% of Twitter usage is on mobile devices
  • Facebook added 100 million users in 9 months
  • If Facebook were a country, it would be the world’s 3rd largest
  • There are over 200m blogs

If this is true, and Stephen Heppell seems to think so ……..

“We are, as I have often reflected, facing the death of Education, but are very much at the dawn of Learning. 21st century Learning looks pretty exciting and today’s leaners, with today’s pocketable personal connected ICT, are showing us very, very clearly just how good learning might be. We ignore that at our peril.”

…… then we all need to get our message out through multiple channels.
