Kevin's Meandering Mind | In Support of Those Who Lurk

Comment on lurking:
I’m starting to wonder if lurking is part of a larger process…what role does it play in helping a person feel comfortable with the use of social media (especially if s/he is first using it as an adult learner) and experiencing the norms of a group? What role does it play in a move towards openness

I remember thinking about this when reading Mariana Funes’ story of her journey towards being an “open sharer” (http://mdvfunes.com/2014/05/25/the-psychology-of-open-on-wrestling-your-inner-mooc/). She brings up several good points that address the inner barriers that academics may face and strategies for overcoming those barriers.
