Transcript of Julie's Social Media Writing Portfolio

  • 1. INTRODUCTION Throughout the Social Media Writing for Journalism course at UCF, I watched my writing improve significantly. I learned how to write short and concise, and how to effectively capture images. In addition, I learned the importance of verifying sources and the impact that using various social media platforms can have on the publicity of a story. As an advertising and public relations student, I also learned a lot about the journalism industry that will be very useful in my career. Additionally, I was able to re-vamp my own branding on social media, making me more desirable for future employers. Overall, I thought this course was very informational and I hope it remains available for future students like myself.

UCF COMM WEEK: DRESS FOR SUCCESS Promoting the Dress for Success event demonstrates both my top social media engagement and my best community based work. Engagement: Unfortunately, I did not receive much engagement from any of my material from this class. But for COMM Week, I received retweets and favorites from those who were following the hashtag #COMMWeek2014. This taught me the importance of using hashtags to gain exposure. Community Building: When tweeting about the Dress for Success event, I felt a strong sense of community. Organizations throughout UCF were supporting the event with the same hashtag, #COMMWeek20144. Similarly, UCF organizations were retweeting my tweets to help gain exposure. In addition, creating a Storify allowed me to see exactly how many people were already talking about COMM Week 2014. 14.
