Which types of social media are you currently participating in, which platforms you use, and why?
The types of social media that I currently participate in are:
- Mixed Media, such as, designing, blogging and video advertising. Throughout SEU, I have made video advertisements for Student Publications. I have also help design layouts for the Torch Yearbook.
- I use YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace as a form of advertising and even communicating to keep in touch with events, friends and family.
- Newspaper and Survey’s, I love participating in surveys that are about the issues of this world and local communities. For newspapers, I send requests for topics that I think should be approached and reported.
The platforms I use mostly are Facebook, twitter and wordpress.com for my blogging platforms. I use these particularly because they are appealing to the audience, known mostly to receive feedback about anything quickly and efficiently.
I have learned to advertise in various ways, through just Internet. Usually, when advertisement comes to mind people believe that it can be expensive but not really if you just use sites and links that are media prone.
