The social network: Uses for the student blogger

I’ve been getting my technology course students to integrate their social apps in their blogging. Social sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, G+ and LinkedIn are a few that they can use so their followers can get another view of their interests. Of course, I always advise them to be careful when posting content no matter what social media they use. More often than not, prospective employers are turning to these sites to get a feel for future employees. I cannot stress this enough. In my role as administrator, I’ve checked out profiles of recruits to see if they are good candidates for our school community. Social apps should be used to promote oneself and one should always put the best foot forward. Right? ~~LMMolina
