Something Betty mentioned in the tutorial this week is the importance of creating an online presence, in a professional manner. She mentioned things like Linkedin and Twitter as two key platforms to present yourself as a future employee.
This got me thinking about the fact that not only do I not have a Linkedin account, but, and I feel like a failed media student to say this, I literally have no idea how to use Twitter.
Are there others in the same boat as me or should I just leave?
Don’t get me wrong, I have an account and I follow some obligatory profiles like Jimmy Fallon, The Age and ahem, Justin Bieber. But I get confused as soon I have to favourite something… Is that just like liking it? Or does it carry more weight, like the word would suggest? And apologies for trying again to draw similarities to Facebook, but is retweeting a post just like sharing something? Because it seems to me people retweet bloody everything. Is it awkward if noone retweets your post? So many questions, such confusion.
Anyhow, here is my twitter account: @GonzalezKarlee feel free to add me if you know what you are doing and I will try to learn by example.
Much obliged xx
