In the last Public Relations (PR) Applications class, I can remember discussing the different types of Social Medias and how they are used in Public Relations. We learned ( As depicted below) that at the center of any Social Media conversation is a brand which leads to the marketing, PR, and/or the support of that brand. These help bring about ongoing insight and feedback about the brand from the public, which can be seen through different Social Medias.
I learned that, although there are so many types of Social Medias, many of them can connect to the another so that an audience can find you or your brand easier and read everything about you, your company, or your brand.
For example, say “ABC, Inc.” has a Facebook that updates events and news. Anyone who stumbled upon that page and was interested in what they saw could travel to other sites used by that company such as the company’s Twitter, website, or Blog with one click of their mouse!
In order to better put myself out there, and fulfill the requirements of this course, last class I created a Twitter and Gravatar account and linked them to this blog. By doing that, I’ve allowed and given the context of my face to be seen with what I say on Twitter and on this blog. This will slightly expand my potential audience as well as increase the search outcomes of my name. ( If I were a brand being marketed, that would be optimal! )
