Thing 3: Use your blog to write a short post about your experiences with social mediaThis is the first time I have attempted a blog and am still not sure what I am doing so bear with me. My social media experience up to now has predominantly been Facebook, with some browsing but no interaction through MySpace, Youtube (if that counts) and a brief flick into Twitter.
Other experiences of social media would include a chat room and working group based through courses I have taken run through the Open University where I had uploaded information and shared projects, graphs and photographs. 'Social Network' the film is also worth a watch!
Through doing the 23 Things programme I hope to increase my knowledge of the social networking programmes that are available to me, how they are used by students and academics around the University and further afield in research, and how I can make the most of them for both personnel and career development.
