Did I say that………

This passed week Professor Labarbera talked to students in Lee Ryhant dormitory about the positive and negatives, of online imaging. The presentation touched on the importance on how you determine what your online image is interpreted for the public to see. The powerpoint showed the various students on the campus of how students use their free time with the internet via Facebook, twitter and youtube. Students seems to use social networking sites as a diary for the world to see and read without thinking twice. The Daytona Beach News Journal who showed out the blue took quotes from the students including Professor Labarbera, who showed us the news paper article which had many misquotes and poor editing. Labarbera made a good point in class ” The newspaper has a way of twisting words to fit what they want you to say or trying to say”. Even at the short presentation Labarbera gave, I can tell some of the students who were there still didn’t see that posting a youtube video of yourself clapping your thighs could keep you from getting a potential job and people taking you seriously. There is a lot more to be done when it comes to students and their way of thinking and from the looks of this, this only the beginning.
