I suspectthat the title of the post is why it was read the most. It wasentitled, Social Media Multiple Angles. 4. My Blog:Genevieves Views Blogging with a Vlog! Added 4 weeks ago, I now have 32 YouTubeviews on my Channel for the Vlog entitled,Business Communications. Since this was a classassignment, I did not add meta tags but Isuspect this would have increased my views. The video was a fun project. Slowing down thespeaking pace could have increased theeffectiveness of my video as well as changingthe 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 customersand personal use. 5.

I would like to useTwitter in the futurebut dont believe itapplies to mybusiness, at this time. 7. LinkedIn I had not previously used LinkedIn. I know that it isa terrific networking tool and a great way to buildmy personal brand by showing my current andpast 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 itwould be. I have received LinkedIn requests fromwriting vendors that I have worked with in the past- - and am super excited about that! Now, I just need to set those security settings! 8. 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 todays 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!
