This has been a good semester and a good class. I have learned a lot about social media throughout this course. Before I took this course honestly I didn’t even really know what social media is, like I would have guessed it was the social aspect of the media but really wouldn’t have even known that it was Twitter and Facebook and things like that that I use every day and I definitely didn’t know all the things you could do with it. I have evolved this semester from just a guy using the internet to somewhat of a social media expert if I do say so myself.
I know that I may not use social media the way I should, but at least now after taking this class I know how I am supposed to be using it professionally and that if I had to be professional I would be able to do it now. For now social media is just a social tool for me, but I know that in the future I will have to make this part of my business profile and when this happens I will have to clean up what I do and have done in the past on my social media websites. Knowing is half the battle. For example before this class I kind of had Twitter, had just started using it but now I know I can make lists, participate in tweet chats, make up hashtags for certain things that I want to keep tabs on and much more!
In conclusion, I have learned so much about social media and I know that I can only learn more from here now that the door is open. Facebook and Twitter and just the small picture, there are hundreds of other tools out there that I don’t even know about that people are using on a daily basis. If you truly want to reach people in the business world, one of the easiest and most efficient ways to do that would have to be social media. And now I know that.
Thanks Sara 🙂
