“If opportunity doesn’t knock build a door” Milton Berle

LinKedIn
With over 400 Million users worldwide LinkedIn can argue they are the “World’s largest Professional Network” It is used to network business professionally and create jobs for a large community. LinkedIn is not like other types of online communities it is solely for business purposes a bit like “Job and talents” where you can upload your CV and when there is a job opening you get notified. However with LinkedIn it is much more in-depth you will have to network with job companies and other professionals by joining groups that is within the sector you’re looking to work in. when you join the groups it is your way and the employer’s way to connect and for them to view your profiles and engage on a professional level. Staying up to date with you profile and the every changing pace and requirements of jobs descriptions on LinkedIn can be time consuming sometimes. Also LinkedIn in a very professional website so in my opinion the older and more experience you have the better chance of you getting a job. There is also some legal complications that you might face using the website for inappropriate use. In 2015 a 57 year old messaged a barrister and told her that her image was “Stunning” she stated that she found the message “offensive” this feud went about on Twitter but made the news very soon.

What’s your opinion on the small feud? Was it professional that he messaged her or was she in the wrong for not just taking the compliment as they are both professionals and business persons?

DanTDM

 

DanTDM a recent Channel that I have become so used to watching every weekend with my 9 year old brother is a reputable way of the audience to get involved. DanTDM is a you-tube channel based on tutorials requested by the audience which is recorded and commentated on by Dan who explains to his audience how they should play a particular game. Clocking up to More than a million views a day and up to twice the comments DanTMD as got ideas coming in 24/4 so he is always working on his next videos if you call playing games “work”. The most interesting bit of this is that he is getting paid million each day based on his views, which as allowed him to be able to move to other platforms such as having online shops that sells his name on clothes such as T-shirts. The audience has given way to help with this type of you-tube media as a lot of people are now getting more involved with gaming tutorials. The comments at the channels are sometimes very vague but some of them can be very useful Dans channels get people especially Min-craft lovers.

Smart phones

A very good example of convergence is our smart phones. We are currently in an era where we can do what ever we need to do just using our smart phones. In the late nineties a lot of us had to go to the library to read up on information or  go to internet cafes to use the internet. The way how new media has taking over has allowed us to have phones which from the start as moved on from what they were first intended to be used. We have moved on from having the Nokia( brick) phone which was made to just call and send messages to phones where we could play arcade games and listen to the radio. Now in the 20th century we have affordable smarts phones where we can use Facebook Messenger which in my opinion is a complete inconvenience on my phone, as Watsapp just makes everything much easier as now you can call and send messages using mobile data on your phones. We can use the world wide web on  or smart  phones coming from a time where we could only do this on or computers. Using the world wide web allows us to be conversed on different platforms, so as much as your latest Mac or dell laptops do, you smart phone could do as much and even faster in some instances.

It has made us inseparable with our phones. “Talking about not being able to live without for five mins”.2011-05-27-basic_needs.jpg
