For our final project, the students in my communication class have to each develop their own 5 minute TedTalk (click on this link to see some AMAZING examples) about a topic of their choice that fits within the curriculum. Since I am not only an English major and Communications minor, but also a Marketing minor, I decided to explore how social media is effecting the business world. With sites like Twitter and Facebook allowing people to interact instantly, the way people feel about a product, advertisement or business plan are very uncensored and accessible. I want to show my class how different things like holiday shopping are today because of things like reviews on websites. Something like this is an example of how social media is effecting the business world. A company can spend as much money as they like in the marketing department but nowadays they are not the only ones in charge of their image.
While you’re think about how AWESOME and INTERESTING my TedTalk will be..check out these two TedTalks that I just couldn’ t help but love!
