How did your perception of social media’s benefit change in this class?
So for me my perception has grown so much with how and when I connect with people from all walks of life in many different social media sites. Facebook for me is to connect with my family and friends that I haven’t seen or can’t talk with on a regular basis. Twitter I really had no idea what the heck hash-tagging was until I started using it here in my media classes, so before I started school I wasn’t a fan of other social media sites except for Facebook and I really didn’t think that this social media was going to help me out.
I have then since decided that it is a very helpful tool in connecting me with the people in my community like doing videos for non-profit organizations such as the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society since I am now doing a video for their Spring fundraiser “Meowgaritas & Mutts” , also hopefully in the Spring I will be doing another video for the Olympic Peninsula Rowing Association. I did one for them back in fall quarter of 2017. Here it is for people who haven’t seen it.
So in this way I have grown in how my perception is on ways for me in getting what I want out of life and how I’m going to accomplish that. I’ve set up profiles on many different social media site and a couple that I started using just a couple of months ago like Tumblr, Pinterest, Linken, and I have gotten a Blue Host account but haven’t had a chance to get my website set up yet. I’m really going to miss being in school and I really want to maybe stay.
