Hello all! I haven’t posted to this blog in almost a year and at that time most of my entries were for a class I was taking. For about the last two months I have been trying to start posting again but can never get past my writer’s block so I decided that instead of…

Twitter!

I realize I have previously posted about Twitter for this blog but there are is so much to say about it for the purposes of my social media class. People who are familiar with Twitter are generally aware of what a hashtag is and how it is used. With the current events happening around the…

LinkedIn

If I asked you to stop and name three or four social media platforms you use on a regular basis, I am willing to bet that you might name Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr or Pinterest. How many people do you think would name LinkedIn? How many people do you know who utilize LinkedIn regularly? In my…
