Little Nothings. Old People on Facebook.

I have a very involved mother. Let’s call her Cookie.

Cookie just joined facebook, and dare I say it, Twitter. Needless to say, I’ve spent countless hours explaining how to operate and navigate facebook (and that mug changes everyday). Cookie is cute though; she emails me things she sees on facebook to ask if she can “tweet” it.

The most recent thing was this LONG ASS status…that was funny…but too long for twitter. I’d like to share:

To all the ladies who are in a hurry to get married here is a piece of biblical advice: 

 “Ruth patiently waited for her mate Bo-az”

so while you are waiting on Your Bo-az don’t settle for any of his relatives: 

Broke-az, Po-az, Lyin-az, Cheatin-az, Dumb-az, Cheap-az, Lockedup-az, Lazy-az,

and especially his third cousin Beatinyo-az. 

Wait on your true Boaz n make sure he respects Yo-az.


Social License?

In my four years of college, this may have been one of the best classes I have ever taken. I was able to learn a lot of useful information, and brush up on my online communication skills. This course was also very flexible and enjoyable, allowing me to use everyday social networks to complete assignments and communicate with my professor. With assignments due at the end of each week, this course introduces new and exciting topics geared toward online social mediums and how to use them effectively.

I have created a short presentation that takes a walk through my new media drivers training! Here is a brief outline:

  • Why I enrolled in the course. What I expected. Beginning thoughts, etc..
  • Getting started. Blog. Facebook. Twitter. Google. The New Media Drivers License course. Etc.
  • How Ive managed to use my blog for more than classwork.
  • Closing remarks. Etc.

LOL…so of course my presentation will be a little more structured…but you get the drift! This course was definitely worth the time and the money (credits cost loads of MULA!), so hopefully this post will encourage other students to sign up!

Prof says “social networks are cool.”

This is a blog  for homework :-p So every now and again I have to deviate from fashion, music and entertainment. This stuff is still pretty cool though.

Like I said before, this is a New Media Driver’s License class, so of course we are dealing with all kinds of on-line communication tools.  I already had a Facebook (shocking, but I remember when facebook with brand new LOL), so check me out sometime.  We were asked to create a Twitter and LinkedIn account (check me out on there too) as well.

So Twitter is like a big ol’ status update. LOL. Nah its cool though, you can be random or informational. You can follow people and what they are “doing” too.

LinkedIn is like a more business savvy facebook. It connects you with all kinds of business people and companies. Similar to facebook, but more like “grown up” if you get my drift.

SO a few questions:

1.) How do you hope to use these social networks?n2314986_50290568_2184-copy

I hope to use these social networks to meet people, share information, receive information, and all that jazz 🙂 I also hope to use certain social networks as a way to keep in contact with important and not so important people :-p

2.) What are your social media goals?

My social media goals are to have accounts with EVERY communication community on the Internet! SIKE…seriously my goals are to learn about new on-line media outlets, and how I can use them to add value to a business. I also want to effectively market myself for any ventures (business or pleasure) I may choose to pursue.


WOW! Facebook is taking OVER!

Google has a blog search tool. Its pretty straight foward. Click the link, type in keyword/topics related to what you are looking for, click search. Bada boom. Bada bing. RESULTS!

I tried this bad baby out, and after typing in digital media, a bunch of blogs popped up about Facebook. A blog that stuck out to me was the Digital Media Wire, mostly because it was the first result in my search (LOL…Im kind of lazy).

Skimming through the article I found out Facebook has about 80 BILLION users.That’s twice as many users as it’s closest competitor, Myspace.

Moment of silence…

WOW! OMG! 80 BILLION?!?! I remember when I first joined facebook, about four years ago…entering my freshman year of college. There were no applications, add-ons, etc., and it was only open to college students. Now, Facebook has evolved into a mega-communcation tool. Coolbeans! Join..if you haven’t already 🙂

Not your typical drivers license

New Media Drivers license is a course designed to teach people about internet media and useful communication tools. Introducing a multitude of potential free advertising and networking websites, this course can be used for both business and pleasure.

This class uses online communities such as Facebook, blogs, Twitter, and Linkedin (to name a few) to help people explore the internet and various business markets.  These online mediums also help people make connections with other people all over the world, and strengthen their network.

OK…so enough boring disclaimer stuff. This class is pretty amazing thus far. Any class where you are required to use social realms like facebook, can be nothing more than the greatest.

No exams, minimal homework, and lots of interaction!

Personally I wish this class had separate tiers and concentrations, like a series, so that I could take this course each year. I definitely recommend this course for students and business men/women, especially given the new demand of internet savvy individuals in the job market.

Another cool aspect  is that upon successful (yes, you have to do your work, and do it well) completion of the course you get a Media Drivers License. SO…that means tell all your potential employers you are licensed to drive media…LOL…no seriously!
