I suspectthat the title of the post is why it was read the most. It wasentitled, Social Media – Multiple Angles.
My Blog: “Genevieve’s Views” Blogging with a Vlog! Added 4 weeks ago, I now have 32 YouTube views on my Channel for the Vlog entitled, Business Communications. Since this was a class assignment, I did not add meta tags but I suspect this would have increased my views. The video was a fun project. Slowing down the speaking pace could have increased the effectiveness of my video as well as changing the video length from 60 seconds to 30 seconds - as the average view time was only 45 seconds. Since I like to write, I plan to continue blogging! It makes sense for business to update customers and personal use.

I would like to use Twitter in the future but don’t believe it applies to my business, at this time.
LinkedIn I had not previously used LinkedIn. I know that it is a terrific networking tool and a great way to build my personal brand by showing my current and past accomplishments, current picture, organization interests in marketing, public relations, and tradeshows as well as my personality. It was much more user-friendly than I thought it would be. I have received LinkedIn requests from writing vendors that I have worked with in the past - - and am super excited about that! Now, I just need to set those security settings!
ConclusionWe live in a global world – I have known this tobe true. However, through the Social MediaMarketing class, I have learned that we also livein a global-social society!It was very interesting to me to take this class with international students and gainan understanding of how they, too, view social media and the marketing toolsthat are available to us. In the end we are all doing the same thing – we areinformation gathering. We are seeking information, networking for relationshipsand working to gain a better understanding of one another in our globalcircumstances.For me personally, I will of course continue to use Facebook . For my currentbusiness, Facebook is still the best way to connect with our customer base –although, I can see that changing as customers become more technologicallysavvy. The biggest take-away for me is that I have gained a better understandingof today’s social media tools and have also realized that social media is not just afad. It is a tremendous marketing tool of the future (and now) that I need toembrace!
