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.
Facebook is not the place for politics. That is exactly how my political views on Facebook read. People that know me very well find this funny, as I am very opinionated when it comes to Politics and can always hold my own in political debates. But to me, Social Media is different. I tell myself […]
Sitting through the first Kane Social Media class my thought process went something like this: (1) Professor Kane is animated, cool! (2) How do I manage all of this on canvas? (3) Where are we on canvas now? (4) This is a lot of information (5) Professor Kane is crazy! (6) That girl looks like […]
Social media is something that whether we would want to admit it or not has come to run our lives. Whether you are a child of the “tech generation” brought up by each detail of emerging gadgets, or you are a “baby boomer” trying to understand the technology growth over the years, social media that […]
I originally discovered Kayla Itsines and her fitness empire the way that I come across many things these days—Instagram. I remember scrolling through my feed and seeing five of my friends “like” one her posts. Inevitably, I clicked the photo to see what it was all about. The Instagram account, @kayla_itsines, contains hundreds of […]
I post, therefore I am. As businesses new and old turn to social media to restructure how they market themselves, other types of institutions are making a similar push—our university included.
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 […]
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. This class not only reinvigorated my use of social media, but it allowed me to look at SM from a totally different perspective. Reflecting back on my post regarding initial thoughts on […]
On my first blog post I described my 2005 encounter with social media, the strong role it grew to have during my formative years and my questions for how it would affect business as we know it. In keeping with that line of thought, I have broken down the lessons I’ve learned throughout the semester […]
Once upon a time, a recent law school graduate and full-time MBA candidate elected to take the #IS6621 Social Media and Digital Business course with Professor Jerry Kane at Boston College’s Carroll School of Management. She was earnest in her pursuit of a deeper knowledge and understanding of the business implications of social media, and […]
One of my friends suggested I take Social Media and Digital Business with Prof. Kane. Initially I was skeptical about taking this course because I did not have an active social media presence. My usage of social media was limited to Facebook, Whatsapp, Skype and a few other apps. I had no experience with WordPress […]
It has been an enriching and rewarding semester delving into the world of social media business. Is social media changing our society? Is social media bad or good? I can write at length about these two questions and I can accumulate research to support an argument but I wouldn’t be elaborating on what I’ve gleaned […]
Throughout the class we’ve learned about social media’s seemingly limitless capabilities and reach. Social media has grown from a simple space where people play on their virtual farms to an inseparable part of our daily lives. This year alone, politicians are expected to spend upwards of $1 billion dollars online ads with social media sites […]
