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.
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 […]
Last week, Amazon launched a Social Media Influencer program. The program will allow the influencers to earn fees for purchases that were made through their social media accounts and posts. Amazon will also assign a custom URL for the customers who would want to shop a certain influencer’s feed. Unlike the existing Amazon Affiliates program […]
I admit it. I was one of those high school teenagers that jumped on the Tumblr trend, constantly browsing through pretty outfits, inspiring quotes and TV show GIFs during class and study breaks. But after so many years, I really thought the presence of Tumblr was long gone…in fact, it was only on spring break […]
The podcast industry is changing and someday we will look back in disbelief at the decade where endless amounts of high quality content was accessible at virtually no cost to the consumer.
Going Digital When I graduated from college in 2012, I was faced with the daunting task of figuring out the next big step and getting my first “real world” job. My active search resulted in two opportunities – one where I could join the accounting division of Ernst&Young, and another one where I could join […]
There is absolutely no way I am going to my ten-year high school reunion this summer. Okay, so it is over 3,000 miles away in Dublin, Ireland, but even if it was easier to get to, I am not entirely sure what the point would be. I don’t feel the need to reconnect with my […]
After a good deal of sweating and heart palpitations, my individual presentation is over! Woohoo! I survived! Due to the brevity of the presentation, I’m taking this blog post to elaborate on some of the research I did when exploring my topic– photographing strangers. Just in case you were as tired as I am when 8 […]
Finsta: For those of you unfamiliar with the term, a Finsta is a fake Instagram. The first time I made a Finsta was as a joke with my friend. We didn’t follow the conventional method of posting outwardly embarrassing photos, but we did post a collection of photos we didn’t want to purposely show others. We […]
Twitter has been in the news a lot lately for its possible takeover, live streaming, changing character limits, etc. Seeing so many things changing with Twitter, I started to wonder what it is about this platform that keeps me coming back to it. I think the reason Twitter is my social media platform of choice is […]
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 […]
“I can’t wait for my high school reunion to see how everyone turned out…” I guess I wanted everyone to know I thought this Facebook page was funny when I liked it back in the 8th grade. In my defense, that was when the majority of my newsfeed was my friends liking random pages with funny tag lines […]
IS6221: Social Media & Digital Business begins! Hello, readers. My name is Becca Fink. I am a part-time student in the MBA program at Boston College. So far, my coursework has consisted of the standard business school courses: management, economics, accounting…you get the idea. As someone who isn’t exactly interested in the “Business World” I’ve […]
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 […]
