A Glimpse at the Future of Social Media, Education, and Digital Technology

Coming into this class, I was interested in technology and social media, but also quite skeptical. Over the course of the semester, my view has changed, becoming more optimistic about the future of social media, education, and the workplace. Professor Kane was right in his TED Talk we watched at the beginning of the semester […]

Semester Learnings and Life After ISYS6621

Last week, I introduced 4 key reasons why I have avoided social media up to this point, so to summarize for those who read other blogs: I did not feel I would add value to social media conversations I did not feel that social media would add value to my knowledge/life I blamed social media for […]

Finale

If this semester has taught me anything, its that Social Media’s uses go far beyond what we utilize it for. Coming into college, I was sure that I was a master of the cyber world. I was getting about 20 likes per tweet, 100 likes per instagram, and my facebook profile likes had me on […]

There’s So Much Left to Learn about Social Media

When I was looking for my fourth and final class for my second semester of senior year, I was not sure what could be most helpful to me. My friend suggested Social Media for Management, which she took and highly recommended. As a finance concentrator, I had very little experience with the concepts of social […]

Highs and Lows of Second Semester Senior Year: #IS6621 X-dition

They say that all good things must come to an end, and on this Friday there are certainly a lot of good things coming to an end: the end of the 2015 spring semester of classes (including ISYS6621), the end of my fourth year at Boston College, and the end of my entire undergraduate career. […]

Goodbye and Thank You to #IS6621 Z!

14 weeks ago, I reluctantly dragged my feet all the way from a long day at my internship downtown to our first IS6621 class. If truth be told, I was not entirely thrilled about the idea of sitting in a 2-hour class. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I can […]

Final Reflection – Social Media in the Palm of My Hand

Final Reflection on Social Media It is unbelievable that the end of the semester is here. As I sit here and write this final blog reflection all I can honestly think about is my future and what is to come next. Personally, I have had one exhausting and rigorous semester … but no worries, you […]

Final Reflections on Social Media

It’s safe to say that I learned more from this class than I ever expected to. I came into IS6621 with a few communications and social media internships under my belt, and I thought I had a decent understanding of the ways social media and business intertwined. But there’s so much more to social media […]

Social Media & Me

Prior to joining this class, my knowledge of social media and awareness of it’s influence on my life was limited.  Yes, I had a Facebook account, perused Instagram daily, had my resume on LinkedIn, and communicated through emails. However, social media seemed to be an activity that I selected to participate in, rather not something […]

Reflections: I stand corrected

So where to begin this blog post? There are so many possibilities to cover here, and I will try to avoid clichés-i.e. the ‘rise of social media’, or the ‘power of social media’.  I’ve decided that a good place to start this closing blog would be at the beginning, reflecting upon my first post. Looking […]

Final Reflections of a Converted Twitterer

Before this class I wasn’t quite sure how to use Twitter, and didn’t know what to really say in a tweet. I never really checked Twitter, and chose to be active on other social media sites, but MI621 Social Media for Managers shaped my understanding of Twitter and made me realize the power of 140 […]
