Here I am, having to take my last few classes before graduating. I had to contemplate on taking a research class or a social media class. Research sounds absolutely boring, but in my realm of knowledge. Social Media? I have zero knowledge about. I than decided to ask a few of my colleagues. Obviously, when I ask my young peers they all said, ” the social media class”. Why? Because they know all about social media.
But wait… I have a fear of social media. Yes. Ridiculous right? Who can be afraid of social media? Many. My point is, is as students that are soon making way into the work world, its important for us to understand that not every person that we come into contact with is social media savvy. And for us as Public Relations, Business, Advertising, and Communications majors. It is important for us to know peoples fears about social media if they have it, before we can win them over with our knowledge of social media that can potentially take their business to the next level. Attached is a website that I found on the 7 ways to master the fear of social media. Hope you find it interesting!
