From Prof. Raychelle Harris (July, 2011):

  • What form of social media is used in the Deaf community?
    • Ka-Wai Ng comments:
    • Deaf have the smartphone to type text messages (SMS) to others. Some deaf have the video camera feature on smartphone to call with their sign language (its feature looks like Video-phone). You can look at the example:

What form of social media is used in the Deaf community?

Kyle’s comments:

  • Texting is best for family/friends with no internet or email
  • on phone because texting is faster than email
  • Handheld devices are the first option for news
  • Access for alerts is not freely provided
  • Video phones are free for Deaf and hard of hearing people
  • but the person needs to be available to receive the call
  • Skype video quality is sometimes clear, but sometimes slow.

TRANSCRIPT:

The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) has been very busy, and has attended many state conferences and rallies. We are also busy attending meetings with various government entities including the Department of Education, the Department of Labor, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Communications Commission. As we have been busy with these conferences, rallies, and meetings, there have been lively discussions about what the NAD has been doing via social media.

At the next board meeting in Minneapolis on Sept. 18-19, the NAD Board will look at its social media policy to figure out how to handle social media such as Twitter, Facebook, and V/Blogs. This meeting will take place right after the NAD Leadership Training Conference (NLTC) on Sept 15-17, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

You are invited to attend the NLTC on Sept 15-17 and the Board meeting on Sept 18-19. Both events will be at the Millennium Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. For more information on the NLTC, go to http://www.nad.org/nltc

Tweet comment from Deaf advocate Neil McDevitt :

@NeilMcDNeilMcDevitt

@KelbyBrick Disagree with @purpleComm.

If you equate Twitter to FB, you\'re missing the point. Twitter = personal/corp brand to world.

What problems need to be solved?

The DIGITAL DIVIDE !

From Neil McDevitt (Aug 15, 2011):

“The biggest gap right now is the digital divide.  

Folks who live in rural areas, are severely economically disadvantaged, or are not familiar/comfortable with new technology (especially elderly people) are most likely to miss out on the critical information that comes from emergency officials (which is often repeated via social media outlets). 

So is something else needed?  There has been recognition of the digital divide and there are various efforts at the FCC and other places to address.  But these efforts haven\'t focused on the emergency side and perhaps it\'s time to start looking at that. ”
