Social Media is vital yet tedious. I have learned that social media is a requirement for any kind of successful business, marketing, and endeavor. It is almost required to keep relationships going at this point in time. It also takes a bunch of time and energy to make it work. I will really struggle to use the technology to my benefit because I can’t hardly set aside a dedicated day to do billing every month. I have no idea how I would set aside time to update information, post features of interest, make new connections, change my design, etc.
The assignments in this class were really simple. Yet, without a purpose, they are hard to complete. Tweeting ‘anything’ should be a simple task. Unfortunately, I missed several of the required tweets.
While I clearly see the benefits of regularly participating in social media, I struggle to find something in my world that I think would be relevant in everyone elses. I have lots of aspirations that social media will eventually help me succeed. I may have to hire or recruit someone to help me.
I imagine I will use many of the tools we learned in my future. I will use some for my interpreting business. I imagine I will use media more and more in my teaching at Portland Community College. I will need to use it with the nonprofits I hope to start some day. I should start to use it now with church and Deaf ministry. Unfortunately, I don’t do great connecting personally on these sites. I imagine I will use it more and more. Perhaps it will take my kiddos being raised and sharing their life experiences on facebook.
