MSVU Social Media Course Blog

Just another weblog

Maybe it had to do with their beautiful accents?

This week we had the privilege to hear from three professionals who use social media on a daily basis. Their expertise and knowledge really tied in everything we had been discussing in class until then. Bringing us full-circle was great since now I can connect current real life examples to what I am learning in class.
When Calum introduced SEO, I found this extremely interesting. It made me think about how I search things on Google. I’m sure it has happened to you that you can’t seem to find what you are looking for on Google. Well, now we know. It might have to do with the fact that we are not thinking the same way as the person managing the website.

Another thing that makes you wonder is the language being used. It becomes obvious that the rules of English grammar do not necessarily apply online. A new lingo has been created, and proper structure has been thrown out the window. Why can’t we just keep the same language on and off line? I mean, it’s already a challenge at times for me to speak English properly face to face with someone let alone change the structure to make it fit the online criteria. But I guess it’s part of the game.
