The video was awesome. Well out of my league that's for sure. I really liked the magazine, South Park, and Education Page references. Good information and good use of audio and visuals throughout.

If I really had to pick something, I would say you could have shown how it could be used more in the classroom. It also looked a little blurry but it was not that bad at all. Well done.

Amazing intro! You had plenty of good information and explained how to use Facebook really well. I thought that you had some good applications of Facebook in the classroom, but I thought that a few more could have been added such as posting videos for class etc.
Facebook was a little blurry looking and I that seems to be a common problem when using a lot of online programs.

Fantastic intro. I really liked it. Good job showing how to sign up. It seems like a simple enough process, but it is still important to go over since some people still might have issues. I'm glad you showed support from magazines for some of Facebook's features. You also did a great job tying it into education.

I would have like to see a little bit more support or examples of implementing Facebook in a classroom. In addition, I feel like defining Facebook terms like "wall" or "check-ins" would better help people who know nothing about Facebook to understand the video and how it would help them use it in education.

I really liked this video. The length was right-on. It had my attention the whole time and the information was very interesting. I also really like the South Park reference at the beginning. It added humor to the video, which also helped me keep my attention. Great job!

My only suggestion would be to include more from the educatinon aspect. It was a great way to showcase Facebook, but the educational part was a little short.

This video was really great! I really liked the intro and the video kept my attention

The only criticism that I would say I have is I would have liked to see more examples of how Facebook can be incorporated into education.

I thought this video was really great! The sound quality was awesome and I really liked the South Park intro! I think it was definitely a difficult topic, because everyone knows how to use facebook already. However, I think you guys really put a new spin on it.

In terms of improvement, I think it would have been better had you included some examples of how technology is integrated in the secondary curriculum, since you mainly focused on college students with tutoringzone, etc. Otherwise, i think the video was awesome!

I genuinely enjoyed this video! It was very well thought out, the length was perfect, and it kept me entertained. The South Park reference was clutch. I also like that you attempted to predict where Facebook is going. I agree with you both--it's very hard to foresee how Facebook will change in years to come.

I honestly have no serious constructive criticism for you girls--maybe just to incorporate the educational aspects of Facebook a bit more including the repercussions of things that are inappropriate to post online. Otherwise, great job!

Great Job!! the video was very well put together and clear for the audience to understand with a catchy intro. at the very beginning the screen was on the Facebook homepage for a long time with nothing going on other than narrative... that yould be my only suggestive comment.

Great video! The entire video was really well-made! It kept my attention from beginning to end. I would have liked to see a little more of the education side. Maybe you could have explored the "Facebook in Education" Page and showed some examples of what is on that page.
Great job!

I thought that the introduction was a great attention grabber. I also enjoyed the facebook fun facts.
My only suggestions would be more emphasis on how it could be used in classrooms, perhaps providing a clip showing how exactly a teacher or students might utilize it.

Everyone loves to hear about their favorite social networking site so the video kept my attention easily. This was a good 5 minute crash course on facebook and included most of the key aspects. Also, everything was very clear and concise.
Since most people are quite familiar with facebook, I would have liked to see more about the facebook in edcuation part and less on how to post a status and such. On the other hand, If someone is not an avid facebook user, this video might have been a little confusing (if they dont know what "like" or "check in" means).
Great video overall!

I really liked your video! I found the beginning to be very engaging to keep me involved. Also, I thought you both did a great job explaining how to use Facebook and all it has to offer!

The only improvements I have to offer would be that at one point, the audio was hard to hear and I would have liked to see more ways Facebook could be used for education purposes in the classroom. Great job!

I really enjoyed watching your video! I think you did a great job putting it together and making it very entraining for the audience. The tutorial that you demonstrated would be very helpful for someone who has never used facebook before.

The only other comment I have is that I would have like to see more of how to incorporate facebook in the classroom. Great video!

This was a really great video! I thought it was very engaging the whole time and I liked the video in the beginning. I also liked how when y'all were explaining to use different features, you were actually doing the features that you were explaining, while you were explaining it.

The only criticism I have is that perhaps you could have talked a little bit more about how to use it in a classroom. But besides that, I think it was a really good video!

This video was really well made! The sound is level and clear throughout. You easily demonstrate how to create and use an account. The only negative thing I can think of is maybe demonstrate a little more of how it is educational

This was a really good video. a very clear, easy listen script. I feel like if I saw this without knowing what facebook is, it would spark curiosity and interest. THe only thing I found unclear was how it could be tied to education, but other than that, its a quite dandy video. :)

Very strong video. The narration was very clear and authoritative, and the song in the beginning was a great way to show how popular Facebook has become.

I wish I could have seen about how it can be used in education. Although you did explain it, it was brief, and I would have liked to see it being used for education some how. Also, although the fun facts are a good idea, I would have used them to introduce the topic, but that may just be personal taste.

The intro was catchy and kept my attention. It was informative and I liked that you used news articles to describe where the technology is going in the future. I also liked the seven facts at the end of the video.

The video was well made, so I can't really suggest other improvements than maybe music to make it a bit more engaging throughout? I also would like to know how it can be used in education. Great job girls!

This video was really well done. I almost have no negatives about it! First off, the audio was great and I really enjoyed the intro from South Park. Next, I really like how you sited information for Times Magazine and The New York Times. Also, I had no idea that there was a page dedicated to Education on FB so I'm glad you showed that. Finally, I really liked the "Fun Facts" you added at the end and the comment about up dating your status was really cute!

I would say just maybe show some more examples about how it could be used in the classroom because I think you showed more of the social side and I'm still a little unsure about how I would use it. But other wise a really well done video!
