PS: First of all, i have no idea about this post’s form and font size, i could not change it…It did not work. It looks so bad….sorry for tired your eyes….
Review the past time, We finished the second year, other words, the final year is coming. I still believe that it is better to make mistakes in school than we make troubles after graduation. Therefore, i am appreciate for all challenges and failure i experienced. The most impressive thing is i am looking and thinking about the gap between dream and
reality. Hopefully, this question was not disappointed me, in contrast, it aspired me a lot, my mind and attitude are so positive, my pleasure is shorten the gap, more and more,
that it, keep going, keep starving.
There are some of my contribution and self ideas, explorations, consideration during this semester.
A world of connections
Although Facebook is the world’s largest social network, there are a number of other globetrotting sites, such as MySpace, which concentrates on music and entertainment; LinkedIn, which targets career-minded professionals; and Twitter, a networking service that lets members send out short, 140-character messages called “tweets”. All of these appear in a ranking of the world’s most popular networks by total monthly web visits, which also includes Orkut, a Google-owned service that is heavily used in India and Brazil, and QQ, which is big in China. On top of these there are other big national community sites such as Skyrock in France, VKontakte in Russia, and Cyworld in South Korea, as well as numerous smaller social networks that appeal to specific interests such as Muxlim, aimed at the world’s Muslims, and ResearchGATE, which connects scientists and researchers.Moreover, social-networking sites’ impressive growth has attracted much attention because the sites have made people’s personal relationships more visible and quantifiable than ever before. They have also become crucial vehicles for news and channels of effects. Twitter regularly scores headlines with its real-time updates on events like the Mumbai terrorist attacks and on the activities of its high-profile users, who include rap stars, writers and royalty. And both Twitter and Facebook played a starring role in the online campaign strategy that helped sweep Barack Obama to victory in the presidential race.
To be frank, i have no idea about why this reading exists in the “course reading” folder, i thought all readings were connected with Integrated Media 2 directly, like software
introduction, project ideas, boarder researches about what we going to do in this semester. BUT, i have to say this reading is one of the most impressive i have ever read, because
of the phobia of some creatures, even “monsters” as what the author listed. I always resign myself to face some horrifying, but i winced. Take an example, i do not like Spider, i try
to treat my roommate’s pet friendly, i know it is not poisonous, but i still…. The interesting phenomenon is these things always attract me at the same time. As the author
emphases repulsion and attraction. On the other hand, in terms of “monsters” itself, there is without a exactly definition to describe what is a real monster,behemoths?
leviathans?Dragon?Or genetically and developmentally disabled people? There is a strong sense of sorrow coming when some “freaking shows” and “minster spectacles”
appeared, this kind of exploitation of this kind of abnormal people is in the lowest points on the ethical level of modern civilisation. Anyway, like the author presents that ” of
course not all monsters are evil”. I really love some cinema roles, like vampire, Edwards.
Social media relationships
As the title says, the relationships between social life and media is the main point we going to discuss in this week. There is a shapely relation schema about the social media. I’d
like to talk about connections at first. Social websites, like Twitter and Facebook, they linked to individual directly, people write their profile, show their motivation, and gain
their reputation, and also their personality, status, sharing will attract the common followers,then a series of interaction is stimulated. Moreover, the most surface interaction
way is conversation, members to members, members to outside,broadcasting. Meanwhile, communications take place in community. In other words, this chain connected and
worked started from here. In my judgment, i believe there is a vital point among these medium, i think the part of “individual” is the basic role to make the relationship work.
Individual finds expression in communication,it equals to individual can gather things together anyway.Like human beings’s role in food chain. Individuals built system for
social life, they revise it, prove it, develop it, and keeps it runs.
During the past 3 weeks project refreshing, information uploading,expected interaction waiting. I found there is an obvious gap between the fact and the imagination. According
to what we figured out at the beginning of this project, the initial purpose of our social networks is create a place for sharing and communicating, however, we ignored some
crucial steps, in other words, we did achieve what we planed until now, even our plan seems fantastic. Perhaps it is a special meaning for this task, which let us realise the
realistic practices is totally different from the paper’s ideas. On the other hand, the situation is not exactly terrible, owing for the 15 fans for our Facebook page, there are
someone….lol. I experienced several days mediation, i conclude there are 3 aspects we have to improve. Firstly, we have to discuss how to make our websites more attractive, in
comparison with waiting the people find it, we have push it out by ourselves, promotion, ads, links, or tell friends directly. Secondly, we would better make a timetable with clear
tasks arrangement, like what time we need post what, there should have a regular uploading and frequently information exchange. Thirdly, we have the weakness that our focus
group of people are not getting used to using such social tools, therefore, i recommend to collect the stories and ideas from the popular pages, like Tencent QQ or Sina weblogs,
the information is same, we just need moved them to Western popular webs. We played the roles as transfers. Hope everything goes well, let me take over this tough process.
