  • Any way to shorten the first bullet or make it more “action” like? Also, is there supposed to be the hashtag before the link in the 3 rd bullet?

    3. 3. LINKEDIN• Discovered new possibilities for connecting with friends, colleagues, peers and various professionals through this channel• Loved the discussion forums, especially those related to current mental health issues, especially ACA, ORCA and many others• My linkedin profile: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/jessica-waldroff/46/31/980
    4. 4. ONLINE PRIVACY• There is no such thing as privacy anymore• Remember your dear sweet granny: if you don’t want her to see it, don’t post it - it will never go away• Potential employers WILL check your online profile -keep it professional!• This article was quite thought-provoking for me: http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/12/11/privacy-fades-
    5. 5. TWITTER #TRMA585
    6. 6. GOOGLE PLUS (G+)• Loved the google alerts - allows me to learn more about topics I am passionate about• Interesting to see what others in this medium have to say about various topics and passions in their lives• My G+ account: https://plus.google.com/u/0/?tab=mX#10481930547122
    7. 7. PROFESSIONAL FACEBOOK PAGES• Originally, I did not see Facebook as a place for professionals to post and advertise themselves• I could see eventually using it if I had a private practice, but will keep it personal for now since I use that to connect with family and friends• This article from Julie Hanks opened my eyes about facebook in the professional world: http://blogs.psychcentral.com/private-practice/2011/08
    8. 8. LEARNING FROM MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSIONALS & ORGANIZATIONS• Julie Hanks, LCSW, by far was my favorite; she really is the go-to girl for online identity in the world of mental health: http://www.juliehanks.com/• Other professional groups were helpful in answering my questions and concerns about s entering the mental health profession• AAMFT was fantastic in linking me to various articles and videos on topics I was curious about: https://twitter.com/#!/TheAAMFT
    9. 9. BLOGS: BLOGGER, WORDPRESS, TUMBLR, POSTEROUS• Tried blogging a bit before this class, but this article reaffirmed for methe benefits: http://www.zemanta.com/blog/5-reasons-why-you-shou• It is interesting to see the different ways professionals use their blogs to help clients, or potential clients for that matter, but by far blogger is my favorite!• Have had fun experimenting with how my blog looks - Check it out! http://jswaldroff00725.blogspot.com/
    10. 10. PORTFOLIOS & PROFILES http://about.me/jswaldroff
    11. 11. MANAGING YOUR ONLINE IDENTITY• This can take a lot of time each day, but you will see the benefits to keeping up with your identity- same as anything else you maintain• Hootsuite is my favorite for pulling everything together in one place; makes it much easier! I have not used it to its full potential, but I’m still learning the ropes 
    12. 12. WEBSITES & DOMAIN NAMES• I was not aware of all of the intricacies involved in setting up a website and domain name-who knew?• I think what I have learned from this topic will help prepare me down the road when I want to create a professional website for my potential clients
    13. 13. HAVING AN IMPACT• The Internet has become the medium for people interact with one another on a daily basis• Topics such as autism awareness, animal cruelty and violence throughout the world have become more prevalent thanks to people’s initiative to get the information out there• This article helped me appreciate what the internet can do for the world: http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/10_readwritew
    14. 14. GOALS & STRATEGIES• Be professional• Bring awareness to topics you are passionate about-you never know what you might start• Keep it simple, but informative• What we put out there ripples out to others in the world-whether we see it immediately or down the road
    15. 15. SLIDESHARE• Had no idea this existed before this class; I had heard of other webistes like this, but not this one specifically• Loved the presentations “Everything you need to know about the teen brain”: http://www.slideshare.net/teenmentalhealth/everything
    16. 16. FINAL THOUGHTS• I found this class to be thought provoking and insightful• Appreciated the discussion forums each week and learning from others in the class• These skills and tools will be a resource to me as I continue through this program and into the professional world• I have secretly become a twitter junkie ;-)
