just finished up 2 interviews for my “Principles of Media Production” final project. our assignment is to film and edit a mini-documentary on a ‘controversial’ topic.
myself and my partner, Joe (@joeggles), chose to explore the topic of students’ social media use and the digital trail they have left - and are leaving - behind them.
today we interviewed our professor, media and production guru Liz LeDoux (@eljuniper), and our career advisor Alyssa Hammond (@BentleyCareerAH). both had great things to say about their own social media use and what they see students doing wrong - and occasionally right! I’ve always agreed with Alyssa in that certain social networks serve certain purposes - Facebook is for friends & family, Twitter & LinkedIn are for the world. Liz, however, brings up an interesting point in that there are definitive personas created with each profile you fill out on these sites. Does consistency matter in how you portray yourself across the social sphere for all to see?
the production and editing process is long, but I look forward to keeping you posted on its progress and sharing the final piece with you! next we’ll be interviewing students… looking to seek out those with stellar social networking and those with not-so-stellar.
