Happy Memorial Day everyone!!
I hope that all of you will enjoy your festivities today and take the time to remember all of our United States men and women who have risked their lives in service so that we can remain free.
So if anyone has wondered where we’ve been here’s the story. My mom and my little nephew came into Orlando last weekend to stay and visit for two weeks. The original plan was that I would still be doing some things here and there but Mix It Up was gonna be on a short hiatus. Then this past Thursday night all three of us were in a car accident. My mama has very sore back, neck, and chest. As well as a cut place on her knee and some other little things. I have had some pretty bad soreness in my back and neck which has put me out of work until I can get in to my doctor on Tuesday to be checked out better. Praying that nothing serious has happened so I can go back to work very soon!!
So in the mean time we will be on a hiatus until everything gets back to normal. In the mean time I will be posting some photos from my favorite part of the summer Star Wars Weekends!! Which began last weekend at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!! I was able to attend all three days of the first weekend and it was fabulous!!
Be in prayer for us and stay tuned for new stuff to begin again next week!!
Who would have ever thought that when you first created your Xanga blog, had Myspace, started your Facebook account, or Tweeted for the first time that one day there would be career opportunities within social media?? I know I didn’t.
My recent decision to get back in school has got me thinking about social media and digital technology in a whole new way.
Social media has expanded in to such a vast spectrum. It is no longer just used as a past time, for fun, or to communicate with friends and family. While those are mainstays, the world of social media has grown in to a vast empire that early developers most likely never even dreamed of.
Businesses are now hiring specialists in the area of social media. They are using it to build their business. It’s basically like free advertising.
For example say you’re a popular boutique and you wanna let people know you’re having an exclusive sale starting tomorrow. You could tweet about it and in 30 seconds millions of people can know.
People that get hired for these positions kinda have to think on their feet and be clever. Whether it be a blog, a video, a tweet, or a Facebook post you kind of need to know a little bit about all of the different platform and what audiences use which one the most.
Some people spend a lot of time watching YouTube videos. Some people like to read Twitter feeds. Some people search the blogosphere for good articles. Some people look for new things to “like” on Facebook. Beyond that there are so many other social media platforms like one of my favorites Instagram that are growing and growing.
I like learning about all of these. So I am looking at specializing in the area of social media when I head back to school this fall. I love the idea of being apart of something that ever changing and growing daily.
New social media platforms gain popularity now overnight through the use of smartphone apps. People find the ones they like and then tell their friends and it gets bigger and bigger.
What an exciting world!!
Social media has given the world a voice that they have never had to be able to communicate in seconds to people all across the globe. Now you can have it as a career. I think it is such a great area to be apart of for professional career goals.
Would you hire me for social media??
What are your thoughts on this empire of social media that is continuing to grow.
Which platform is your favorite?
I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions. Let me hear from you!!
See ya later!!
