There used to be a time where social media was simply for recreational socialising; to share noteworthy encounters, odd photos, hilarious videos and interesting links. That understanding of social media has somewhat evolved over time. For students, social media now includes graded forum postings and discussions, wiki-assignments, blog-based homework, lecture podcasts and so on. While many students and teachers are happy to work via these new mediums, some have complained that work on social media requires a lot more effort. Others have also opined that social media should, essentially, be for leisure and not work.
