A J-School story…
If you are not close to me or are new to the blog you might not know that I work in social media. Social media is literally LIFE. YOU HEAR ME?!
I’m in a class called “Editing” and we basically draw up projects, send reporters out to report and then we edit their stories. Everyone in the class is given a role for each of the projects (there are 2).
There’s lead editor, copy chief, interactive editor, photo editor, social media editor and I think another role that is escaping me right now. When I saw social media, I had to have it.
I plead my case and I was awarded the position for our NYC Marathon project. I was serious about this. My grade was involved and I just love social media anyway. I wanted our class, our teacher and our school to be taken seriously.
I made a Twitter page for us, made hashtags that should be used on every platform. I had a plan and wanted it to go off without a hitch.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT?!?!?! IT DID AND I GOT AN A.
Social media, for me, is truly life.
