COMM 4333 TOW: #1 Social Media

Standard

I am involved in a variety of different types of social media and have been for quite some time. I remember back to the days when I thought I was the coolest person in the world because I had a Myspace and a Xanga. But nothing quite changed the world, or my world for that matter, until Facebook.

We all know Facebook. According to Facebook.com, there are more than 800 million users. It’s pretty much changed the entire face of the world as we know it. I find it to be the best way to stay in touch with family and friends. While most people in the world have an e-mail address, these days it is so much easier to just send them a facebook message, or thanks to FB mobile, you can even connect with them on the phone. I use FB to share photos and updates on my life. My mom especially loves FB because she can keep up to date with what I am doing in life since I don’t talk with her every day.

Twitter

Though I recently gave up my twitter, it looks like I will have to resurrect it in order to continue in my PR classes. I really do like twitter and the way you can connect with other people and post short blurbs of info. I retired my twitter account because I was becoming too active on the internet and wanted to limit the appearance of my name on such sites.

Instagram is probably one of my most favorite forms of social media. I’ve been using the App on my iPhone for over a year now, yet just found out that you can follow, tag, comment and like other people’s photo’s. Sometimes I am so behind on all of this technology hoopla. Anyways, I love photography and this is a great way for me to take, edit and share my photo’s with the world.

Pinterest

Pinterest is one of my greatest discoveries in 2011. Fortunately I was able to get on and be chosen before it got too popular. Several of my friends have been waiting upwards of two+ weeks to receive their invitation. Pinterest is a great way to get ideas for crafts, recipes, outfits, parties, ceremonies and traveling destinations. I could spend hours on this site every day, but 15 credits this semester prevent me from doing such things. Pinterest makes me feel crafty and artistic, two things of which I am not, so I greatly enjoy this site.

I’ve used blogs for quite some time now, but I really enjoy the simplicity and style of the WordPress blog. I haven’t kept a blog in over three years, but having one for my PR classes has put me back into the spirit of blogging, something which I hope will continue after I graduate.

Though I do not use FlickR nearly as much as the others, I do love hosting some of my photographs on this site. I like the options of being able to share my photos with others and order prints. The only thing I do wish for is more storage on the site…it took me two months to upload my Africa photos because you can only upload so many at a time.
