#CampusChat December 21 Topic: The Gift of Name-Dropping
2011 is almost over and what a year it has been —
Growth in online networks, especially Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, has exploded!
Check out these social network statistics:
- Facebook: More than 800 million active users (Facebook Statistics)
- LinkedIn: more than 135 million users with 10 new members added every 5 seconds (Business Insider)
- Twitter: More than 360 million users? (MediaBistro) + Stats from the Twitter blog
Given all the social-networked hyper-activity, I'm sure you've met someone interesting online — maybe even on #CampusChat (I know I have!)–so why not drop a few names of people you've met who've been a positive influence, collaborator, partner, or friend that you met through a social network in 2011?

Join me on #CampusChat on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 at 9PM, Eastern. Come tweet your list of fascinating people you met online this year.
#CampusChat meets Wednesdays on Twitter as a forum for people interested in higher ed, the college-bound, parents and teens, enrolled college students, interns, authors, and college admissions advisors to meet and exchange ideas and connect. For more information see: What is CampusChat?
