This best practices session provides insights into using social media platforms to facilitate instruction in a psychology of social media university course. We will discuss: using unvetted social media sources to help students develop critical thinking skills and to facilitate discussion; using Facebook groups to promote prolonged engagement with peers sharing and discussing relevant topics; blogging and microblogging to reflect on relevant topics; and using myriad other social media platforms/tools to learn and teach one another about the psychological influences of social media.
