Making Social Media Accounts

Our first assignment is to download Slack, create a LinkedIn and AboutMe page. I haven’t heard of the app Slack before this class, and it seem a little complicated. You have to join the groups hashtag and introduce yourself. At first, I was confused because I didn’t know how to work the app, but I figured it out after playing around with it for a while.

After creating the Slack account and trying to understand it, I created a LinkedIn page. I’ve heard of people connecting through LinkedIn, but I didn’t know exactly how it worked and I didn’t want to be apart of another social media account. Learning that LinkedIn is just an online resume, I immediately was confused and wanted to see how other people conducted themselves on this website. Overall, I went through people’s profile just to see how everything was set up.

In the meantime, I am trying to take a professional picture for my profiles and being apart of these website is something new to me. Therefore, I’m not sure how the picture should look, but based off of the majority of people’s profile picture it is a headshot.

Overall, I hope to learn how to be professional on these website and present myself in an excellent way.
