Finding Balance in a .dotcom Society
From Jeff Layne
Residence Community Coordinator,
In this presentation, subtitled “Managing Your Social Media Identity,” Robert Morton takes a look at the phenomenon known as “social media” and gives students some advice about how to make it work for them rather than against them. He offers a list of “Six Sins of Social Media” to help students avoid such pitfalls as scams and the posting/sharing of potentially damaging personal information. He supplements this with a list of “Six Tips for Managing Your Cyber Identity.” Mr. Morton also discusses the positives of social media, including its use for networking and new business opportunities. On the lighter side, he plays some interesting and amusing YouTube videos that “went viral” and changed the subjects’ lives.
