MissionTo create an online page/networking profile which will help me in my career path as a TV Presenter/Media Personality.I wanted to connect and network with people online who are professionals in this field of work. By following these people, I would not only be given an insight into their work and ideas, but you never know, they may even take interest in some of the things I say!!!I am glad we have this subject to learn how to use other programs other than Facebook as for me, this is purely a social site.
Character and PersonalityI consider myself to be a girl who over-analyses people and situations but who also loves humor.Here is a link to an autobiographical piece from my blog: http://raws.adc.rmit.edu.au/~s3337279/blog2/?p=675It was interesting to see how classmate, Victoria Tunbridge, “mashed-up” my earlier post: http://raws.adc.rmit.edu.au/~s3337178/blog2/?p=408 (or see next slide)
Twitter• I like how Twitter is concise and to the point• There is a word limit to what you post, so make it count• I only began using it at the beginning of this semester for this course, but I can’t see myself using it beyond this course unless for career purposes.• I prefer to use it to follow people as I feel my updates aren’t worthy for followers to follow• In a lecture, we were told a good way to “get into new spaces” in the “Twitter-sphere” – this is something which I needed to do, and so I did.Link to relevant blog post: http://raws.adc.rmit.edu.au/~s3337279/blog2/?p=716
Classic Status Updates By creating links from one networking site to the next, I am hoping to expand my personal identity I enjoy watching everyone’s feedback on the lectures on a Monday morning Then just some overall classic gags to show my true personality
ABC POOL• Through the small time I have got to know POOL, I can’t help but gather the high level of professionalism it withholds• With this in mind, I have uploaded amateur show reels of myself presenting. All of these are raw footage, as I have not got around to editing them properly just yet.• This is what I want to mostly use my POOL profile for, showing my followers footage of myself.• I have found it harder to follow people on this site than I do other sites, and I am ashamed to say, no one is currently following me, all in good time…
• So far on my POOL page I only have three video, two lifestyle presenting pieces and my short film from last Semester in “Film and TV.”• I had difficulty uploading the videos directly to my POOL page as the file sizes were too big, so instead, I have created links for my followers to Vimeo.
Why Did I Choose Those Networks?• Despite being introduced to most of them in this course i.e Twitter and ABC POOL, I have come to realise that they help me engage with not only my peers, but professionals in the industry too• I love the nature of both sites, how you can receive feedback and respond with one another in regards to the materials uploaded
