Final Thoughts as told by T-Pain

As most of you know, T-Pain closed out BC’s academic year with the annual Modstock concert, which is held on the last day of undergrad classes. This got me thinking: what better of a way to center my final blog post than on T-Pain? Without further ado, I present to you my final thoughts as […]

This past week I downloaded Periscope to try it out for myself. We have seen some of the uses of it in our class (e.g. BC giving virtual tours), but I wanted to see how it might work for an individual like myself. I didn’t really know how it worked or what to expect, but […]

He seems to be doing that in a rather, let’s say interesting, way, however. The internet has been on the edge of its seat and constantly refreshing their feeds to see what […]

Here We Go

Before registering for Social Media and Digital Business, I had a general idea of what to expect because I had a friend who took this class last semester. I knew it would be a lot of work, but I was totally willing to accept the challenge I was about to face because I felt like […]
