Live Tweeting no more…

Well maybe no more…I guess it depends on what you plan for your client strategy and implementation and your social media blitz. But you are done with your “official” Live Tweeting for the semester.

So now, provide a few observations you have about your own live-tweeting and the live-tweeting of your classmates. Who was the best Tweeter (other than you)? Why?

What do you wish you would have known before you started this process? What did you learn? What one piece of advice would you give to someone who was assigned to live Tweet and event?

Embed your best Tweet in your response and explain why it is your best.

News Engagement Day Feedback

This year’s News Engagement Day fair saw several classes coordinating to help students at Texas Wesleyan get more engaged with the news. What did you do for MCO 3399? Do you think your social media was effective? What did you learn, and how will that impact your projects for the rest of this semester?

It’s about the relationship

When Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff wrote Groundswell, one of the things they focused on was relationship building. In the relationship that you want to have with your “customers” or potential “customers,” what are the key components you want them to have? What words should they come away with when they look at your social media?

Using chapter 2 in the book Groundswell, look at each of the categories listed on page 19:blogs, user-generated content and podcasts. Use an example that you have created from each of these categories and explain how it works to give your “customers” the experience you want. This is about brand you, so focus on your content about yourself for this post.

Starting from the beginning again, summer 2015

When you open a social media account, you oftentimes check the box that says you’ve read the terms of service, but you rarely read the terms of service.

Take a look at Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram. Post a link to the terms of service for each site. Were you surprised by what you read? Who holds the copyright to what you publish on each site?
