Just wanted to give a little update on the Web site that my Social Media class is creating. It’s really coming a long way pretty quickly, and we’re learning a lot of interesting stuff while doing it. In fact, I helped my mom create a site for her new business after learning how to set one up in class! Look at me, already using what I’ve learned.
First of all, the site is called Socially Orange, if I haven’t mentioned that before. I think the name is so creative and fun, and definitely easy to remember! One of the girls in class came up with it, and I must say I’m impressed. As of right now we are focusing on getting members involved who are affiliated with the Journalism & Broadcasting (JB) school at Oklahoma State. Eventually we are hoping that it will expand beyond that, but that’s where we’re starting. The main goal of the site is basically to give JB students, prospective students, recent grads, or JB professionals a place to meet up and network. Hopefully it will lead to internships and jobs for students, and possibly stir up some interest in the JB school for future students and employers as well.
As of right now, groups are being created, blogs are being written, and videos are being uploaded pretty often. It’s definitely in the beginning stages, but I’m proud of the little piece of it that I’ve been involved with. We currently have five different groups available to join, and all of the events affiliated with the JB school are posted on the site, so it’s a great place to keep up to date on the school.
If you haven’t been to the site before, check it out by clicking here. Wish us luck!
