People who don’t use ‘Social Media’ often ask me why those who do use it, go on about it so much. One reason why this is such a concern is that there isn’t enough exposure for the good that it does.
Like any other tool, social tools on the internet can be used for useful purposes or for timewasting, and tools like Twitter are often cited as a great way to waste your time. As a result I’m keen to share with you examples of how people use these tools to save them time, and even achieve what they may not have been able to by conventional means. Here’s a great example.
Koisty Cassells is an architecture graduate who is studying part time whilst working for an architects practice. Traditionally, taking your studies part time has been a lonely, isolating experience because you don’t get the benefit of the studio environment.
In this video, one of our ArchitectMap podcasts, Koisty explains how social media has helped her get the most out of being a part time, full time architecture student.

When you say that like any tool, twitter can be used for wasting time, I can just imagine someone wasting time with a hammer, idly hitting walls and things for no good reason.
I really like how social media has helped connect the world in a way that was impossible pre-internet, and even in the early internet days when it wasn’t around. It’s really a wonderful thing.
