Hello class, my name is Doreace Walls and as you may have all assumed I am a Communications major concentrating in Public Relations. This is my third year attending Cal State, and before last quarter I had no interest in Public Relations what so ever. This is my first quarter taking any Public Relations courses and I enjoy them all very well so far.
When thinking about my “online identity” I would say that it is pretty slim to none. Although I do have and use Facebook, Twitter, IM, and email I am not an avid user and none of them tend to destract me from my studies, or have any impact on my personal life what so ever. I will say that the network that I am most on is Facebook, but most of my internet time is spent either for school purposes or searching for jobs and internships.
I have a very limited online identity and I am hardly ever online, due to my crazy hectic schedule. I work two jobs. One is here on campus as a student mentor, which is part time. The other is (like mentioned before) with ArrowHead Credit Union as a full time teller. The only digital media networks that I engage in is Facebook, which I check about twice a week. I don’t play any online games nore am I on any other social media networks. I guess I am a pretty dry person, but I am hoping to gain some kind of knowledge about the networks out there to offer from this class.
My name is LaTecia Yarbrough and I am a 3rd year communication major with an emphasis in Public Relations. I am 20 years old and one of the first in my family to go college. I also happen to love my school California State University of San Bernardino. I currently work for CSUSB housing and also live on campus as well. Something interesting about myself is I am the only child, I love the Lakers and the show house. To add to that, I can honestly say that I have never had a facebook account, but I do have a Twitter; follow me @Tecia21. I enjoy texting only if the messages are short and straight-to-the-point. I have an email address as well, but I almost never check it. I love to listen to music so I tend to make playlists on youtube.
One thing I’d like to do is expand my knowledge of the news, because I am a person that doesn’t watch television nor read newspapers. I also would like to read more to help broaden my vocabulary. I hope this class could help me gain a better understanding of my major and enlighten me that I have made the right decision in making this my major. My last and most important goal is to get an A in this class.
In terms of my “online identity,” I can honestly say that I’m not an avid user of digital media, and never really have or understood the gist of it. In other words, I won’t die if I forget my phone at my house. Though I have a Facebook, I actually do not use it, as I see it very distracting with schoolwork and other important aspects of life. If I ever get an important notification, I will check, but other than that, I’m not a big fan. I also don’t like online games or text a lot on my phone either. The only social media I use regularly is Twitter, and often check when I have a chance each day. I like that Twitter is simple, and doesn’t require a profile buildup or have games to distract you. I also like that I can keep up with important info (brief) from politicians, pastors, ministries or actors I follow.
