This assignment seemed easy from the start, but it began to get harder as it went along. I have become so accustomed to separating my professional life from my social media life. Not that I ever post anything inappropriate, but I have never been one to use Instagram or Twitter as a way to talk about or consider professional issues.
I mainly used Twitter and Instagram to keep tabs on my friend, current events, or news, and less on what is happening in the sphere of public relations or advertising. This has taught me how to use social media as a way to think about and process what is going on in the world of PR and marketing. It has taught me to become intentional about using my resources, such as social media, as a way to further my knowledge and gain insight into what is happening in the world around me.
I will continue to be more critical when reading news headlines and look at how information is presented in the years to come.
