With social media becoming a very popular platform, it is important to understand how to get the best use possible out of it and make it work for you! As mentioned in previous posts, social media has been able to aid faculty and universities in many ways to strengthen their relationships with students. However, there are always ways that YOU as a student can use social media to help better your life style and future.
 
When it comes to your own social media practices, you can always use them to improve your personal image whether you are using the tool to apply for a job, college, or just in general. When I went to a conference last year for undergrad students interested in the field of higher education there was a session on social media that made me look at it from a whole new perspective. The session talked about the importance of making sure your social media platform represents you in the best way possible. This means making sure there is never offensive material or anything that may portray any organizations you are affiliated with negatively.
 
How can you do this? To utilize your social media so that it works for you and represents you in a positive way, always make sure that you have your content set to private, such as, approving any posts made by another person. Just because you aren't the one posting it, if a friend posts something offensive on your wall or page and you don't delete it, you are basically saying that you agree with or have no problem with what he or she is saying. This can be just as harmful to your image as something coming right from you.
 
When I came to college, I knew Facebook was an easy and efficient way to keep in touch with my friends from high school or new people that I was about to meet in college. However, I realized that because I was going to start building a professional image of myself, it would be a good idea to delete my old Facebook from high school and start a fresh new page. The reason I did this was not because I had offensive material, but because the old Facebook represented a younger me as a teenager. Making a new one allowed me to restart my social media presence in a more mature way.
 
Small things like this are simple ways that can help you keep in an eye on how you look on social media. It is always good to make sure you present yourself well in all media outlets, no matter your age, profession, or how much or how little social media platforms you use.
 
Do you utilize social media like this? Have you ever experienced a situation where someone was reprimanded because of content on their social media platforms?

Heh, dzień dzisiejszy elo boosting również każde kurs ówczesny na dworzu. Aura dawna ok, lecz musiała odbywać wyrok w cieniu, ażeby nie postradać zmysły. W samej rzeczy było oddanie. Na drugi dzień zdołam nie przechodzić do szkoły- co najmniej owszem ogłosiła moja mama. Heh, bez ryzyka pomknę gdzieś z Karoliną. Do grody, bądź kędyś. Wczoraj pragnęłam wpisać do tej pory jakiegoś posta, bramy dolnośląskie
niemniej jednak Onet maleńko zatrzymał zaś nie mogłam tworzyć dzieło bloga, ami w ogóle się zalogować. Heh, wkórzyłam się troszeczkę. Dzień dzisiejszy obgadywałam spośród Orzehem plus Sosną, obgadywało mi się rzeczywiście świetnie. Bartek C. już mnie właściwie denerwuje, iż nie akceptuję, jednakże stale maleńko do niego mam. Heh, to oznacza nie mogę jeszcze ogłosić, iż matki go w d przy p plus e, jakkolwiek rodzicielki go na rekomendacjach, iżby z grubsza dupy było. Heh, znam, iż owo zabawnie dźwięczy. Kumpel spośród sale Bartka opryskał mnie kitem, natomiast w dalszym ciągu różny jego qmpel uprowadził mi uszczelkę do czupryn. Obecnie żadnej prezerwatyw nie matki :((((( Heh. Uzupełnię w tej chwili, być może wieczorkiem jeszcze byt wpiszę, jednakowoż figa nie przyrzekam. Aktualnie przestawię agenda sznurów, by suma istniało ok a mi współbrzmiało! Narka!!!

Social media has evolved into a major communication tool with tweets and posts linking students in seconds. Social media supporters believe that the rise in its use by students beyond social relations is helpful, while others argue the opposite. So the question to explore is: Does social media help students?
 
Studies done by researchers at Michigan State University have concluded that students who have almost little to no experience with the college application process have shown to uncover the information they need through social media. The results of the study also concluded that the students who were applying to college who needed help with the process found most of their answers by looking them up on social media venues. Students also used Facebook to contact current students at the colleges they were applying to in order to get a better understanding of what the life of a student is like. With social media chiming in at moments like these, it shows how useful it has become beyond the point of entertainment and that it is also becoming an important part of our lives.
 
What can be learned from the social media explosion is that it is important that whenever a new phenomenon sweeps through our society, we consider it from all sides. Since social media rooted itself in our society we have acknowledged its downsides. However, over recent years, society as a whole has found ways to incorporate social media so that it is more useful and beneficial, rather than distracting and distasteful.
 
So, if social media can help students attain more information on the college application process as shown in the Michigan State study, then it stands to reason that it can continue to help students throughout the college years. Do you agree with this? How else have you seen social media exhibit positive outcomes in college or university life?
A brief introduction
 
It's a normal afternoon for college students. They sit down at a lunch table with their friends after class to get something to eat and catch up with each other. Given that it is 2013, their conversation could go anywhere. However, chances are that at some point or another, some aspect of social media will be brought up. Whether it's "Oh, did you see who Tweeted this?" or "Hey, did you see what she wrote on Facebook?". The truth is, this is the new norm.
 
In this day and age social media has become a part of our culture, so much so, that it's considered a social norm, used by anyone for any reason. With the growth of technology, even over the past few years, social media has found countless platforms to allow its users to immerse themselves in a vast network of online news, blogs, social interactions, and countless other venues. Since the dawn of social media, it has evolved into a primary method of communicating, getting our news, and promoting a culture dominated by technology and the Internet. When considering these facts, one can't help but stop and think how this might be affecting higher education and what impact it has had on students and the institution itself?
 
From my perspective, social media has taken over higher education in many ways, none of which I would say is negative, as social media is now being used by faculty and staff just as frequently as students. All across college campuses throughout the country, social media is becoming an integral part of day-today life for the entire campus community. . Just in the past three years that I have been in college, I have seen social media everywhere I go. Nearly every club and organization at Anna Maria College uses some form of social media to market their club, communicate between club members, and reach out to other students, as well as advertise for their events. Social media is even evident on the professional level just as much as it is on the student level. The admissionteam relies on the benefits of social media to help them connect with prospective students, as well as share the wealth of information about the School. Just on the admission page alone incoming freshmen can find links to pages on the Anna Maria website that directly brings them to their point of interest, whetherr one is looking for residence life, student activities, how to deposit, or even how to find email addresses to talk to admission councilors or faculty members. Students can also find Anna Maria on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google +, and Instagram, as well as Linkedin.
 
This is just a small example of how social media has found itself at the center of higher education. I hope to discuss more about this in my next blog...
