  • Facebook: ¬† ¬†Very back and forth with this world changing platform. On one hand, I need it to be seen as fully functioning, and on the other I find myself hiding posts from about 40 percent of my ‘friends’. Overall I’d say I get plenty of entertainment from it, and in recent months I’ve been making strides to clean up some of my history and use o…[Read more]

    In creating this page I was just going for a professional feel, while retaining some elements of my love for nature and some of the finer things. I think I successfully communicated my passion for writing and my future plans. It’s definitely minimalist in style, but it says what I want it to say while giving off…[Read more]

  • It’s interesting to think about publishing companies getting involved on such a personal level like you said. I think pushing the boundaries of standard marketing strategy is what social media is all about. I also really like your comparison to the time period immediately following the advent of the radio. Most of social media and its related…[Read more]

  • I’ve been working a lot with microsoft track changes over the past couple weeks for the intertext class I’m taking, and I’ve realized a couple things. For one, I absolutely love the feeling of finishing a copyediting job, there’s almost no greater sense of satisfaction. This brings me to my second point,.. I’m SO glad I’m not trying to be a copy…[Read more]

  • I get a good sense that most people don’t think of the term ‘literacy’ when speaking about social media, especially platforms like Twitter and Facebook, however one must think of the term. Now that we’re graduating and employers are looking at us in both digital and physical form, it’s crucial that we’re on top of our game. Social media, with all…[Read more]

  • I’m less active on twitter these days, but routinely find myself perusing Facebook. My cousin lives in Chicago and is a stand-up comic. I find myself reading everything he posts, and even googling pop culture references that I might not understand immediately. After a couple years of doing this I’ve come to realize that he must really have a knack…[Read more]

  • Post-graduation I plan to work for IBM downstate in Westchester county. The name IBM has nice brand recognition, and from what I’ve gathered from the readings assigned this week, that’s a fairly important thing. My plan is to bring any writing talents I have into the workplace, and I’m looking forward to seeing just how much room for expression I…[Read more]

  • I very much agree that it’s incredibly important to know how to establish your own ‘brand’. Another way I look at it is ‘marketing yourself’. I think both terms can be used interchangeably. In the society we live in it’s incredibly important to understand the power of being noticed, especially when there is an ingrained urge within the American…[Read more]

  • My current use of social media is primarily Facebook, which I update every few days or so. I have a couple twitter handles but rarely use them, and I have since stopped using my one instagram account all together.

    In the short term however I plan on creating a LinkedIn for both class and professional reasons. I also look forward to learning how…[Read more]
