Social Media Innovation by Prof. Johnson

Announcing a new major set of activities

As announced in class this week there are a large number of new activities available for completion. As a reminder, in addition to the required tasks you also need to do some “your choice” tasks for successful completion of the social media innovation in action activities.

Here are the highlights of the new tasks. All of the details of each activity are included in the activity list.

Now that we further along in the semester, I am purposely providing less details on how to complete these activities! Part of the activity itself it to figure out exactly how to complete the activity. Nonetheless, once you have started working on an activity if you get totally stuck let me know what you’ve tried so far and I’ll be glad to provide some further pointers.


Announcements have moved to the social media innovation portal.
