I extremely apologize for not updating my blog. It has been a long time since I have not found the time nor energy to even write on my blog. I have not only been busy with a lot of things, but I have now found the time to write about something that I have been wanting to write about for a long time. Even though I have not been feeling well, I am going to write about at least something.
I definitely feel that social media is such an important part of PR and marketing, as well as life. Although yes it can be used to air out some dirty laundry (buuuuut that’s none of my business though) it can be used as a way for people to connect with each other. Whether you are a company trying to gain a larger audience or a celebrity trying to gain more fans, social networking isn’t the issue – it is what you do with it that will make you or break you. If you are using it just to gain followers or even using it just for attention, it is the wrong thing for you. Not to say selfies aren’t great to have, but if you are trying to create a particular brand for yourself, that isn’t the best way to do it.
Prime example of a great social media user is YesJulz! who uses social media for both personal + business purposes. Her Snapchat, Twitter, and Instagram pages are great networking tools for those who are trying to build a connection between the consumer and the company itself. In addition, it is also great for many people, including myself, who are trying to get into the marketing and | or public relations, or even journalism field for some. People who use social media like Julz are also using social media to build a platform for their brand and creating a company that is not only a major success, but social media sites such allows her to really show people not only what she does for a living, but show people that she is human and that she is living life, as well as creating a connection between celebrities and regular people and showing many people that no matter what you do in life, you are still you and to always be yourself and never forget where you come from.
With that being said, it is not social media that is the problem: it is how much consumption you have and what you do with it that can either bring you to the top or bring you nothing but bad publicity and haunt you forever.
P.S. Promise to update more! At least I will try to do it.
