I’m taking ENG 572 Social Media this semester, and it’s been very eye-opening in terms of understanding the best ways to use to your advantage what is available to you. It’s great to look at your social media use for fun, but it’s also great to try and understand it from the perspective of a corporation.
For my personal social media use, I’ve decided to try and create a little social media web of my own. Throughout the class, we were asked our goals for social media use. We documented the goals on a school bulletin board, and it will close when the class is over. For that reason, I’m going to document my goals here so I can try to reach them.
For the record, I want to get these things done before school starts in the fall. Because we all know how crazy things get then.
