Here is a site that fascinated me over the weekend. Social networking and democracy decide what music is played on this site. Once you log on you can go to a particular station and vote in real time with other users and decide what song to play next. I found this interesting because for me listening to the radio is a way to relax. The concept of voting and lobbying for your song to play next seems like to much work. This is a great example though of just how embedded social media has become and an example of how social media is being used by kids everyday. Not using it in our schools and classrooms seems to be something that educators really need to look at and consider.
