While many college students are using social networking Web sites like Facebook and Twitter, faculty are also taking advantage of these sites. According to AHN Media, Twitter has become quite a phenomenon for people of all ages and all types across the world, but many have raised an issue with some using twitter during academic settings. Faculty Focus, a Web site dedicated to higher-education professionals, announced the results this week for a survey evaluating Twitter usage and trends among college faculty. The survey was conducted in July and August and encompassed around 2,000 education professionals, with the results showing that about one-third of the 1,958 respondents have used Twitter in some way. About half of those surveyed said they have never used Twitter.
