354MC Professional Practice Portfolio: Social media promotion for degree show

leave a comment »

As our degree show draws ever more closer, so does the importance of getting the word out there to those who matter.  Twitter has ben a great tool for doing this and has managed to bring in some interest.  However, there are only a few individuals from the group who seem to be active in this area.  The importance of getting the message out there, especially on a Friday with the #FF hashtag should not be underestimated.

It is also vital that when students from the group post images onto Twitter or just links to their ongoing projects, to add the #exposure24 hashtag.  Again, this is not being done.

We do have followers on Twitter, but not nearly enough.  This problem needs to be addressed, and fairly soon if the show is to be a success. I am a firm believer in the fact that we all create our own luck.  It won’t just happen.
