Thanks for letting me hang out with you this morning! To recap, we examined WRA's five social media outlets: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Instagram/Webstagram. Talking about the "front" (prospective students) and "back" (alumni) ends of our constituencies and everyone in between, we considered the question of audience. I left you with the invitation to construct a Facebook post for WRA's page. Email me anytime with your suggestions!

Learning Infographics

Links & Reading:
  1. Explore each of the links above.
  2. Find an interesting use of infographics.
  3. Construct an infographic about your journey through WRA thus far. In terms of generating content, consider incorporating several of the most positive/significant events of your time here at Reserve. Also consider envisioning and anticipating your future. This is a creative exercise that will require some thought! Please tinker with several of the infographic generators but also come up with a plan for how to proceed. When completed, post your infographic here in the blog.

Social Media Self-Awareness

Links & Reading:
  1. Read each of the links above.
  2. Find and share one additional article on the topic of the potential dangers of social media in the comments section below.
  3. Partner up with someone in the class. (There may be one group of three.) Be sure you are sitting next to your partner. Now "unfriend" (or the equivalent) your partner on any social networking sites (Facebook, MySpace, etc). Now search for your friend on each social networking site and allow your friend to see what is visible, including posted comments and photographs. Clean up your presence as a result of this feedback. 
  4. Now Google yourself. What image does this information present of you?
