Social Media - Thought Of The Week

Quote:

“Social media is changing the way we communicate and the way we are perceived, both positively and negatively. Every time you post a photo, or update your status, you are contributing to your own digital footprint and personal brand.”

  • Amy Jo Martin

 

Explanation/Question/Challenge:

The ability to access people and knowledge is so fast now.  We have grown up in a world where answers are at our fingertips and if we don’t know the answer to something we simply have to ‘google it’ and we can find out.  Social media means we can be accessible 24/7 which can have both ups and downs.

  • How long do you think you spend on social media in one day? How about a week?
  • What is the main social networking platform you use? Why?
  • In groups design your own social network. Include its main purpose, who it is aimed at and all the details you can think of about your company.
