Directions for Students of the Social Media Course
From ScribbleWiki: Analysis of Social Media
When you comment on a page in the wiki, put your comments on the corresponding "talk" page. This is where I will also put (public) feedback on a page.
Please do not put your reading list on the page titled User_talk:yourlogin. It sounds like the right place, but really it's not - that page is for comments on your home page, which I might very well have.
What every student needs to do
Important note: Please log in to the wiki when you contribute. This is so that William and Natalie can see who's doing what - which is important since contributing (here as well as in class) is part of your grade. Likewise, when you add a comment please sign it (use the signature button in the edit toolbar).

- Register for an account on this wiki (use the register/login link in the upper right).
- Edit your wiki home page. As an example, here's William's wiki home page. It's very useful for me to have some information about who you are - at a minimum a picture and a link to your home page.
- On your home page, indicate what parts of the wiki you plan to contribute to. You should list 8 contributions, each of which should be approximately as much work as adding a summary of a conference paper to the Annotated Bibliography. (See the Turney, ACL 2001 page for an example, and read the Rules for Adding Entries first.) Other possible contributions could be:
- Summarizing a longer paper
- Moving information from the old home page. (Mostly done now).
- Writing an overview of some subarea.
- Creating a list of people working in social media.
If you're not sure about how much something should count, ask me or Natalie.
Some advice: as soon as you've decided to add a bibliography entry, create a stub page for it in the wiki so that other students will know you're working on it.
