On your marks, get set, GO.

This is the post excerpt.

The academic year of 2017 has begun at De Montfort University, and so starts the studying and analysis of Social Media Production as part of the Social Media & Technology module within Media Production. But, before talking about the specifics of this module I’m going to tell you a little bit about myself and my other academic endeavours. Opting into 3D Animation as well as the mandatory Television Production and Image Capturing modules, I am looking to make a successful and relevant career for myself with my degree. Following on from my first year of learning at De Montfort University I have eased into the comfort of learning in a style which leans more on balanced responsibility and self-study, allowing myself to be prepared and confident with the year to come.

Social Media Production; it surrounds us all in this newly digitalised modern world. As a youth growing up with technology rapidly accelerating in efficiency and ease of access I could perhaps say that it’s hard to imagine a time before a message to the other side of the world was just a button away. Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, LinkedIn, all of these websites allow communication to be instant, connected and shared. Communities and societies being built in union by complete strangers, strangers who become friends, friends who become family. The world we live in today has been shaped by Social Media and the affects it has had on us as a society and a people. Countries borders slowly meaning little and little as cultures shape together and gain a new understanding and tolerance for each other. Looking at Social Media Production this way is what inspired me to pursue such a course, and enticed me to want to learn more about what it offers us.

All of my social media links can be found via the ‘About Me’ page, it would be great if you could check them out.

Thank you,

-Ben
