We also point out the following the advantages of Google+: - Google+ is a more user-friendly than other social environments and very suitable for use by school children than other blogging environments (e.g. Wordpress); thus it stimulated the play-like learning. - Google+ is more customizable than other social environments; - By allowing teachers to post questionnaires and to share images and videos or links to content on the Time Maps website, the Google+ page acted as an aggregator of information and a for scaffolding the learning process. After different stages of experimentation, we produced different statistical analysis of our results: concerning the most accessed social media. It indicated that Panoramio was the most visited (Figure 15)

The statistics indicate that the different social networks had different levels of impact on the children and that in the future developments the focus should be on those more frequently accessed.
