Social Media Boot Camp at Brother Martin High School

I recently spoke to the senior class at Brother Martin High School about the benefits and pitfalls of social media. It’s an important subject I enjoy speaking about, and as the students wrap up their high school careers and set their sights on college, I think it’s critical for them to realize how easily a 140 character tweet, Facebook post or Instragram picture can haunt them, literally, forever.

When it comes to social media, you never know what’s going to stick. I use numerous real-life examples (including one that involves me) that are certainly attention-getting.

I enjoyed the talk and the students were attentive, receptive and responsive. For anyone interested, I can customize my presentation for any size group.

New Facebook Page

I’m working on incorporating a lot more facebook use into my daily news coverage. I have a personal facebook page for family and friends and I like to keep work stuff separate.

On the new work page I’ll post newscast-related stuff, behind-the-scenes videos and stories of interest. Plus, I’ll seek viewer feedback and opinions on certain stories.

Facebook and Twitter

I just created a new Facebook account for work purposes. Check it out here. You can also follow me on Twitter.
