Who to follow on Twitter.

Filed under: Public Relations — Kelsey Kula at 11:04 pm on Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Before taking this class I never thought of Twitter as a place to brand myself for future employers or to follow people who are experts in social media or public relations. I thought of Twitter as just a place to update what I am doing to my friends and to see what new celebrity gossip […]

Hurricane Sandy’s Distasteful Twitter Account

Filed under: Public Relations — Kelsey Kula at 10:27 pm on Monday, November 5, 2012

Once news broke that a hurricane would be headed toward the United States, attention-obsessed Twitter users quickly jumped on the idea of a spoof account. Many have been created, but the one that stuck out most to me was @HurricanneSandy. The Twitter user created this account on October 25 and has posted around 140 tweets. […]

GE success on Pinterest

Filed under: Public Relations — Kelsey Kula at 6:28 pm on Saturday, October 20, 2012

On social networking websites, it is rare for a company to not solely be focusing on promoting their products. General Electric is one of a few companies that have had major success on Pinterest because it chose to go down a different path, inspiring others, which also promotes their brand in a more natural way.

Blogging for the future

Filed under: Public Relations — Kelsey Kula at 11:41 am on Monday, October 8, 2012

Before this class I never thought about blogging and how it would promote myself and my views. I did not think that many people read blogs or were even interested in them.

When my class was assigned to write about a social media blunder I thought that these would be hard to find since a group of people usually operate the company’s social media websites. I figured with a group of people working on a promotion, it would be hard to mess upĀ or have a campaign that […]

Young adults can be professional too

Filed under: Public Relations — Kelsey Kula at 7:22 pm on Saturday, September 15, 2012

After reading the first few numbered points in the article written by Hollis Thomases all I could think was discrimination, discrimination, and discrimination. Every point on Thomases’ list could represent a person of any age. That is why we have the interviewing process. A company should not hire a person anyway if they are too […]

Advertisements Just for You

Filed under: Public Relations — Kelsey Kula at 8:21 pm on Saturday, September 8, 2012

Social media websites like Facebook or Twitter are a great way to communicate with friends but they are also a great way for businesses to communicate with their consumers. Before Facebook, advertising agencies had to rely on television or magazine ads. They were easy to skip over and ignore. Advertisements tried to be personal by […]

Social Media Views

Filed under: Public Relations — Kelsey Kula at 6:39 pm on Saturday, September 1, 2012

When I was a teenager, social media websites were a way to express myself, my opinions, interact with friends and look back on memories. Never once did I think, “I should probably watch what I say because in a few years future employers will judge me by this one website.” My mindset was not on […]
