More questions than answers

In reflecting on this semester’s Social Media and Digital Business course, I feel like I am walking away with more questions than answers. I mean that in a very positive sense. What I have taken from this class is not all of the answers about how social media and digital businesses will affect our identities and societies in the future, but instead it has instilled a curiosity and inquisitiveness in me to continue to think about these issues in the future.

#ByeIS6621 #IllMissYou #Z

I feel like just yesterday I was writing my first blog for this class about our initial thoughts on social media. I remember sending @piercematt121 a text asking him how to write a blog since he is a casual blogger in his spare time outside of school. I considered him an expert, yet his response […]

From Beginning to End: My Social Media Experience

Before taking this class my use of social media was dwindling. Besides Instagram, I rarely used any other form of SM regardless of the purpose.
