This is a slide I have put together to recommend some social media website. We all know the popular one such as Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to name a few but htere are so many out there. It’s good to explore and try it out to see if you can implement into your social media strategy. Enjoy.

GoAnimate.com: how to use twitter by lelebui

Like it? Create your own at GoAnimate.com. It’s free and fun!

For all those who are new to the Twitter social media website, this is a video for you. It’s a simple and straight to the point of instruction on how to use Twitter.com. I created this video in GoAnimate.com, I find this animation video fairly easy to create. It’s FREE to set up an account, however, it’s place a limit on how long your video can be, so be careful not to go over broad with your video and you should be fine.

What is twitter exactly? Good question, newbie! Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service that allow you to answer the question, “What are you doing?” by short message updates that consist of only 140 characters. The short format of the twitter tweets (update status) is a core of their service, allowing informal collaboration and quick information sharing. Twittering is also a less gated means of communication. You can share information with people that you wouldn’t usually exchange in email or IM messages with, opening up your circle of friends to an ever-growing community of similar interests. So, if you haven’t created a Twitter account, it’s about time you do. You can simply create it to test it out. Perhaps, you will love it and keep it for regular update!

This is a video I have created on Xtranormal. It’s about a brother, Bobby and a sister, Sally. These two are at home on a Friday night playing dress up when they heard a noise coming from upstairs. Bobby decided to go check it out while Sally would rather update her facebook‘s status on the situation. Just poking fun at people who use social media in emergency that require a more immediate response.

How:

[1] Go to your dashboard

[2] At the left sidebar, click on pluggins

[3] There will be a list of 25 pluggins, you go down the list and “activate” whichever you want

[4] If you go all the way to the top of the pluggins page, it will let you know how many pluggins you have active and how many are inactive.

Why:

[1] Google Calendar: I want to mainly use this calendar to update various events that are happening within Philly that students may find of interest. It can be anything from social events to networking events.

[2] SlideShare: Since there are some tasks within this quest that will require me to create slide show of some sort. I feel this will be better use for the reader’s viewing experience, rather than click to a link to get to the slide show. It would be better to have the slide show embed within the blog post.

[3] Viper’s Video Quicktags: This is also for the same reason as SlideShare. At this very moment, I am experience with the process of putting a video together. From the conception to the post production, I am self teaching myself. Hopefully, I can have something up by the end of this semester, if time allow. By going back and re-reading some of my post, I realized that I have pictures in too many of them. Sometimes, I would like to diversify ways in responding to weekly discussion.
