Well folks, we made it. We have survived our first year as graduate students in the Strategic Communications program at the University of Oregon. I must say, it feels pretty good. As the school year comes to a close, I wanted to share with you some videos I stumbled across that really felt like they were made for us. They provide a good wrap-up to a year of discussion, learning, and exposure to exciting new possibilities. This first video, The Social Media Revolution, is an impactful look into the power and struggles of social media worldwide. The second, is a parody on this same video. The Social Web – a place for made up facts is good for a chuckle or two. I hope you will take five minutes to enjoy them both.
Both videos should make you think, the next time you post on Facebook or send of a tweet, about who you are reaching and the effects your one small action could potentially have on your social media following…and beyond.
Use your powers for good.
