OneSchool: Is It the Next Facebook?

Last week, OneSchool announced that it was releasing an updated version of its app, which it did on Tuesday. I have spent the past week testing the new version, seeing how beneficial this app would be for Penn State students. I was fortunate enough to have also downloaded it before the update, and can safely say that the app made major improvement. However, these upgrades fail to convince me that OneSchool is worth the memory on your smartphone. I reviewed the nine features that OneSchool bundles, and I am dissatisfied with the experience that I had.

Social Media Insights: Twitter Aides in Exchange

It is sometimes difficult to remember the permanent stain that the media placed on Joe Paterno’s legacy. There aren’t many people who don’t know at least something about what happened at Penn State this past November.

But social media can help bring us together just as easily as it creates divides amongst us.
