I am learning the ends and outs of social media. For example, how to handle a crisis on a social media website as well as when it is the best time to post an update. I am learning a lot and Hannah has been a big help with teaching me the information. She actually gave me the opportunity to post some statuses on the College of the Arts page so I could get use to social media and how to do ot. She gave me some very valuable information about actually spreading out information, based upon just how much activity the page actually gets. It was very informative. She stressed that it is best to do your research on social media so you could get a better understanding of the dos and don’ts. She actually gave me an outline with information about social media. I think this is the perfect time to learn, especially with Artbeat going on.
Our society is becoming so fast paced and social medias is playing a major role within our society. It is best to understand them now and make yourself more accessible for companies. They want you to be well-rounded and have a professional social media presence. I am glad I am learning this now before I join the workforce. I was given the task to actually come up with a media plan. I have been looking at the dos and don’ts as well as how other universities use of social media. The article Hannah told me to look at has been very helpful in trying to develop a plan for our own page. I will continue to do more research in order to develop a good media plan.
