Video – Social Media, School, and College
After viewing the video, perform an Internet search on your name. Review what comes up under the 'Web,' 'Images,' 'Videos,' 'News,' and 'Products' categories of your Internet browser. As a writer, I routinely perform an Internet search on my name, “Mychal Wynn,” to see the book reviews and news articles that are written about me and my work.
Hopefully, anything that you find will portray you in a positive light. If you need to address negative images or want to create positive images and news to further enhance your branding, consider the following articles if you feel that you need further direction.
- Kat Cohen’s Huffington Post article, The Truth About Social Media and Admissions (5/23/13) and Megan Shuffleton’s My Campus article, How To Clean Up Your Social Media For College Applications (11/19/13).
- Shanice Daeche’s Hult International Business School article, Are your social media profiles college ready? (2/6/2017).
- AC Online: College Student Guide to Professional Social Profiles
