As students in Year 11 are in the process of choosing research topics they may like to consider ones to do with social media.On Stuff there is an interesting article about the costs to businesses because of employees using sites like Facebook and Twitter at work. Apparently employees “who fritter time away on Facebook, Twitter and other social media websites are costing British businesses billions, new research suggests”. Another article discusses the case of a women who confirmed her husband was cheating on her when she saw his wedding photos on Facebook! She was very upset to see photos at Walt Disney World, no less, featuring her husband literally dressed as Prince Charming.
