In class we have learned about social branding and I made a project on it. I feel that in researching I have learned much more about this topic that I can now share with others. Social Branding is when you construct your online image to appear a certain way to others. It is very important to have a good social brand because it can help you get farther in life and you really never know who could be researching you so you want to make sure the best aspects of you is always what is seen!
Some tips I have are: Only post things you would be proud for everyone to see, if you wouldn't then don't post it. Secondly, you should always think about how something will affect you and your social brand before posting it, think before you post! Lastly, you should regularly review your social brand to see what you should do differently and what you can do to improve it.
Some helpful platforms to put you on the right path to having a successful social brand are:
But you are not limited to just these platforms, you can use any platform that you can come up with that will help you and your social brand, be creative and proactive about your social brand!
Always keep in mind that social branding can help you:
- look good to potential employers
- show your interests to anyone who sees your social media
- look better in the eyes of colleges looking at you
Never forget that even the smallest of actions can help you improve your social brand which as a result can help you in almost all aspects of life if you use it wisely.
