A Bittersweet End

The Class: Without question, social media & digital business has been my most enjoyable class this semester.  The autonomy that we are granted for our blog posts, presentations, tweets and class discussion allow us to develop our own insights and discuss current tech and social media topics that are impacting our daily lives.  I have truly […]

Gimme Some Sugar
