Join a Facebook forum that solves your problem.
This tips really helped me a lot. Joining a page based on my interest helped me a lot to solve the problems that I encounter.
When I was learning how to design a website, I joined online discussion forum related to website development. Whenever I encounter a problem I usually post my question in the forum where people who already have an idea on particular topic gives us solution. This is the fastest means of getting our doubt cleared. Join a forum that have maximum member.
If you are a student, you should have joined a forum which talks about academic related topics of your level.
Moreover, you can also use a Facebook forum to collect data especially for research paper. Put your question in forum and collect their view through comment. You will get a wonderful concrete responses from the member.
Be friend with your tutor and motivator.
One account can have maximum of 5000 friends in Facebook. If we really look into our friend list we hardly know 10% of them. What are we doing with rest of the 90% of friends? Do we really need them? But I don’t mean to unfriend unknown. But you really need to ask yourself, what are you doing with unknown people? What if you were friend with your teacher and motivator?
In 21st century, meeting a teacher 24/7 personally is hard. Every one need a teacher to succeed in life. You should find other means of getting connected with your tutor. So that you can always ask for help as and when necessary. So, I recommend getting connected with your tutor and motivator through social media like Facebook.
Create a group/forum with your mates.
Creating group or forum within your mates will help you to connect together from different place on one idea. We are no more in olden days, where all people of same interest working on particular topic have to gather for discussion. You can always create a temporary group or forum to discuss on particular topic.
If you are a student, you can always make a group discussion by creating temporary Facebook group. It’s much more convenient and safe. Use Facebook for educational purpose, learn with Facebook.
Stay in touch with senior students
It’s always good to keep in touch with your senior students at least in social networking. They can be of great help in many ways, since they are the one who already know the road ahead of you. They are the right person to ask regarding any academic related topic or any issues that you face. Always maintain a good relationship with your senior students be it personally or online.
Now a day’s people can’t live without smart phone. Why? There may be few exceptional cases like online gaming and all but most people indulge in social media like Facebook, twitter, Instragram, etc…
Since you spend most of the time with social media, it would be a great help if you use it productively. Time and money spent for Facebook is never a waste if you use it for educational purpose. Your 99 data package has a value of bringing Nu.99K.
