I’m sure most of you have heard plenty about Elon Musk. He is the famous creator and CEO of Tesla and is widely considered to be the most innovative entrepreneur of our generation. Besides creating the futuristic electric car company in Tesla, he was also one of the founders of PayPal and currently owns SpaceX […]

What a semester! So much content and so many interesting discussions that have taken place in the classroom, on Twitter and over the comment section on blogs. It is hard to analyze the whole semester, so instead I have broken it down into the parts I found most meaningful and have decided to reflect upon […]

20 days. In 3 weeks from yesterday, I will leave the only stable thing I have had for the last 16 years, formal education. Just like many of you, every year since 2000, Monday through Friday from September until May, I got out of bed and went off to school. Although classes have gotten a […]

I feel like I have learned a lot from this course, but here are just a few of the many thoughts I am walking away with:   1).  It’s probably a good idea to have a “social media mishap” response plan in place. One thing I have definitely learned from this class?  A strong response […]

Congratulations! As usual, the semester flew by as finals drag by ever so slowly as the only thing standing between us and freedom. Thankfully, this class made the semester much more enjoyable and if I were to miss anything about being in school, this class would be up there. Mostly I’ll just be happy to graduate […]

I would like to start out this post by taking a look at this picture above. When I Googled “social media images,” the resulting pages spit out millions of pictures of the common social media platforms in today’s day and age, including Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. But amongst these images, I came across the above […]

Dear Myself in One Year, Happy one-year anniversary of finishing IS6621! This Social Media and Digital Business course was one of the best classes you took at Boston College and you learned about more topics than there are United PR problems. I hope you haven’t had to take a flight with them in the past […]

As I get ready to graduate for a second time, and I look back on this class, I realize a lot has changed in the world of social media and digital business since my first go around some eight years ago.  Back then, Facebook was only six years old, Twitter was four, and Instagram and […]

For starters, I would like to say thank you to anyone who read and/or commented on my blogs this semester! The first thing I certainly learned is that people tend to comment on my more light hearted posts – the personality of a Starbucks beverage or the allure of Kylie Jenner – instead of my (attempt […]

As I am sitting down to write this post in a Starbucks, I can’t help but notice the long line of people waiting to order at the register. I find it quite weird – I don’t remember the last time I had to stand in a line at Starbucks, I just order ahead through the mobile […]

When I first signed up for this course and realized that it would entail blogging/tweeting publicly throughout the semester, I was a bit pessimistic if 1) I’d be comfortable sharing my thoughts with the “entire world” 2) if I’d be able to come up with enough ideas to share for 14 weeks.   I didn’t realize […]

Thank you Professor Kane for a most excellent adventure this semester! This content-rich current-event driven course certainly kept us on our toes, which is why for all the incoming SM&DBers I have this to say: #IS6621 is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get! This final post outlines the five […]

Social Media has been a big part of my life growing up and it will keep evolving and changing in order to stay relevant. Many people who do not like social media are just scared to adopt it because of the volatility that comes along with it. It’s like driving a car or learning how […]

“You’re on Twitter, don’t you have work to do?” Ummm yeah, and I’m doing it. It’s called a social media class. #IS6621 has hands-down been one of my favorite classes at BC and it wasn’t just because of the built-in excuse of claiming that being on Twitter was productive to my homework efforts. And to […]

With each passing class, it seemed like every night there was so much to talk about on social media and in the digital business world.  From PR disasters to rogue national parks the course touched on so many different topics and developments in the digital world that, despite not exactly being a room full of […]
