Tweet Chats are a great form of communication. They are a great way to get a lot of people into a similar discussion and organize it all under one #. For those of you who don’t know what a tweet chat is let me explain. A tweet chat is a chat in twitter that people can enter by using the # associated with the chat. The owner of the chat then posses question and you must answer them by using the # associated within the tweet group.I learned that personal branding can be a good and bad thing. I have realized that much of this has to do with your digital citizenship. Your digital citizenship says a lot about who you really are and what you are like. Like Ricks had said in the tweet chat ” Yes because it’s like a mullet. Business in the forefront, party in the back. Let’s potential clients know the real me. ”

 

We had a tweet chat with the students from the Hoover Alabama business class combined with the multiple business classes in Campbell Collegiate. We also had many other entrepreneurs join in the tweet chat they really brought a positive impact to the tweet chat. We talked about the effects of cyberbullying and how it can have a major impact on the kids today. I really did enjoy this experience and  would like to do this in the near future it was a very efficient way to find out everyone’s opinion on a subject. I found this to be an enjoyable event because of all the positive feedback from everyone in the community and outside the community. Maybe a possible topic for the next tweet chat could be Cyber-bullying.

Cyber Bullying

easelly_visualIn my business and social technology 20 class we have recently learned about digital citizen ship. Digital citizenship is basically your online presence. A topic that emerged from digital citizenship was cyber bullying. Cyber bullying is a major issue that effects a lot of teens around the globe. We talked about the effects of cyber bullying and what we could do to try and prevent it from occurring. An example of an extreme case of cyber bullying is the Megan Meier story, it showed the devastating effect that cyber bullying had on her. We were then assigned to make an info graphic to try and spread awareness of this form of bullying. Above is a picture of the info graphic I have made to raise awareness about this topic.
