I kinda agree but kinda disagree about social media, because social media can help us out in classes and stuff, for instance we use computers and laptops to do questions of the week and work on are blogs.
But, I guess it can be bad for us because like every kid I know gets on the Internet just to play games and get on Facebook. Usually kids would rather get on Facebook than do homework because they are like addicted to chatting to friends all the time.
Social media causes me to not do my homework sometimes and get bad grades, like other kids. But I'm trying to get away and stop using social media. Which it doesn't help when you have to get on the Internet and work on your blog and do question of the week all the time, and that usually causes me to get on games afterwards and play for hours. Well know that I thought about it, social media is bad and I hope all of you think so, too.

To me, social media is a bunch of DRAMA. I agree with Kentucky University's coach. You have a choice if you want to be part of Facebook or Twitter or Instagram. No one is making you do those things, it is ALL up to you. Yes, I do have a facebook and an instagram, but I never get on. The last time I got on facebook was to say that "I can't wait until the Olympics." Other than that, I never get on. My friends have Facebook. Sometimes they will come to school and will talk about what they said on Facebook, and that they updated their status or something like that. Facebook is the last thing on my mind. I couldn't care that someone posted a video that everyone is laughing at.
The only time I will use social media is when I want to check the score of a football game or a baseball game or a basketball game I missed. Or maybe I want to wish someone a happy birthday. I don't come home and spend all day on it. I would rather be outside playing a sport or playing with my animals.
Honestly, I couldn't care less what people are saying on there. To me, it is a bunch of trouble. It is the main cause of bullying today. Someone said something about someone's clothes, and the victim said something back and then a bunch of stuff starts, and when they get to school, rumors have been spread. I know, it has happened to me someone said something about me and I didn't put up with it. That is my point, it is DRAMA!!! I don't know if you agree with me, but Facebook and all those other social media websites are trouble.
They are not that bad, if you use them right, like saying stuff like " I had the most awesome day. I LOVE LIFE!" That could be building your brand. If you use them wrong like posting bad things or saying mean stuff, that is destroying your brand. It is up to you to decide whether or not you want to have a brand or not.
If you decide to stay inside all day, that is up to you. I won't tell you what to do. But I recommend going outside and getting active. Listen to me if you want, but I am not going to say that you should do. It is your life, I am not going to tell you how to live it.
And that is what I think about social media and all the crap that happens along with it!!!
Today I will be writing about how social life affects me and about how I am building my brand. Also I will decide on whether or not I agree with John Calipari. I agree with about John Calipari teaching them to not respond to haters. Lately, the topic of conversation nationally has been how student-athletes handle and respond to some of the criticism they get by having social media accounts and being connected to fans. A lot of coaches and people are suggesting they get off things like Twitter and Facebook, but Coach Cal doesn’t agree. He is teaching them to not respond to hater and mean things people say. That's a good thing because they can focus on their game more. Social media affects my life a lot. Most of friends have a Instagram and facebook and I do to so sometimes I stay on it for along time. Sometimes it distracts me and I don't get my chores done and get grounded. I've never really thought of how I am building my brand. I am building my brand in a positive way. I hope you enjoyed my post!
John Calipari talked about the role of social media and I agree with the role of social media because it shows who you are if you are great person or a not so good person. social media affects my life because people know what I am like and I like to do but it does not affect my life so much that I get in trouble or people talk bad things about me. I think that social media is good and bad I think it is good because people can know more about you and know what you are like and it can be bad because people can know a little too much about you they might be able to know where you live or your number and they can rob you or worse. That is why I agree with role of social media.
In The Reading Workshop, we watched a video about a coach (John Calipari)
Read more: thereadingworkshop.boards.net/post/new/18#ixzz2tyjGnp5o Social Media affects many peoples life. I totally believe that it affects your life. Whenever I'm on Instagram there's always somebody getting their heart broken. Then you got somebody cursing out the other in the comments so that's why I don't on it too much.
Then there are other kinda affects on social media like bullying. I mean bullying on a Social Media can ruin your life. I've never had any personal experiences inn my life. But if someone says something bad about you on the internet it stays on there so lots of people are going to see it. It would totally ruin my life.
In the video of John Calipari he says build your brand. The way I build my brand is by how I act to people. When you are mean to people you are then a mean. If your nice to people then your are a nice person.
I also think a way to build your brand is by how you act over social media. So if you bully someone then your a bully. If your always angry then everybody doesn't want to talk to you because you might get angry at them. But if you are nice to people on a social media then everybody would love to hang around you!
That is my image on building a Brand and my thoughts in Social Media
Did you know? When you get on social media it tells what kind of person you are if your caring, mean, or what you are. Like the coach said the player's are effected by social media because they are athletes. They may be a really good player on the court but on social media they have a bad attitude. When they do it could be a problem on social media because it could effect if they get to play or it can effect school. If that happens it could mess up their basketball career and their like outside basketball and school. The same happens to all people who are famous. Like actors and all them.
I can be both on Facebook because I like have mood swings I can have bad days or good days. Most of the time I'm in a good mood. I'm in a great mood today guys because I have a bunch of good teachers. I am not the famous person in the world but I have good friends and people around me. Well you know when you can have a respectful tone in your voice so it's good to talk in person. If you talk online the person your talking to get the wrong meaning. Like if your joking that person could get the wrong idea.

University of Kentucky men's basketball coach, John Calipari I agree because well it does affect your life because people are will text you but you are like I want to talk to her and your friend is like I will give you my number and you can text me but then you your like I don't have a phone. Sometime they are like get those apps that you can text on but your mom said no then you have no way to text your best friend.Then you are like I want to go to that party and she said I will send you the info for the party on Facebook but your like I don't have Facebook so then your friend like I will bring you one for school tomorrow. Well then she forget and you don't get to go to the party so sometime It does suck that you don't have social media. So that is my answer for Social media :Dsee you on my next post !.
In my opinion I don't really favor social media. Its okay most of the time, there are lots of cool things on there. They can be funny, nice, sad, happy, exciting. But on some occasions people are not all that nice on there. I like to get on and chat with friends, to get there opinion. Its nice to have it sometimes.Like if you needed to contact someone. But sometimes there can be really rude stuff on there.
How does social media affect my life? It is effective when I don't get on. People are always on and talking. I as most other people always like to know what everyone is talking about. And yes I don't like when I don't get what people are talking about. I just try to avoid all the bad things that people do on there and focus on the positives.
How are you "building your brand? I don't like to get caught in the bad stuff so if I see something that I didn't like I would just ignore it. I would look at the nice thing and not even bother to look at the negative stuff. I just post good things. I really don't mind all the negative, it doesn't bother me, if I don't even acknowledge it.
Thank you for reading. Hope you enjoyed. Leave me comment telling me what your opinion is. I would love to hear. Bye!
I agree with Couch John Calipari because there is good and bad thing that can effect you on social media. There are haters and that can bring you down. There are good things about it too.
I think that the way that couch Calipari said to make your brand or brake your is a great to put it. On social media it can make you or brake you. what I mean by that when your on social media other people see what you post, snap,tweet, share and you if you post a lot of butterfly's and rainbows they might think your a sweet girl or boy. If you post a lot of cars people will know that you like cars but if you post a lot of mean posts and not very nice things people might not want to hang out with you.
I have a lot of friends on snap chat like Abby Hardin, Abby Phillips, Kyleigh Caves, Marissa Schultz, Abby McDonald, Alexis Anderson, and Mckinley Krogh. this could brake me because if I don`t snap someone back it could make me left out because maybe everybody opened it except me. If I send nice snaps to people people are going to want to snap me back. So thats what I think about what Couch Calipari said on Mr. McGurie`s blog.
I totally agree I mean people have a point when they say social media has a big impact on the world yeah. I mean I have sites involved with social media but its not a bad thing its just what you post or wright to some one you might not think so but there are people who read these things most people don't know that you have to be careful. Watch what you post because it can also reflect on you in the future like trying to get a job yeah you probably think I'm lying well I'm not some jobs ask for passwords and user. You have to give it to them or good luck finding another job be extra careful post some pictures that you know are inappropriate for the internet some nasty thing can cause you a lot more than you think.There are a lot of people that lose there job for this very reason please please watch what you post-Be careful watch what you post I'm out

I agree with John Calipari that social media has a role on a person! Like if you post cute pictures of animals than that is OK. Some people are addicting to like Facebook,twitter,Insagram,My space but what is not OK is when post mean pictures about them and they never get on there again.
I do have a snapchat and Instagram, But like no other people in the 6th grade has a twitter but two people. Social media is not good for you I mean it do stuff to you and it is not good for your brain either. Like on Instagram I post like pictures and I get like 11 or 14 likes. And on snapchat I only send stuff if people snapchat me first but I don't get on there alot only if like people send a story or something.
Social media does have a kind of an affect on me like i do like i pictures on other people's thing but that is it.
This is about what John said about how you build your brand on the video I watched. I agree with John because if you say mean things about people on Facebook or any other site people would get that your not a very nice person to people. But if you are nice about what you say on Facebook or any other sites they would think that you are a nice person. So if post bad thing that can affect you in life no or later when you are try to get a job or get in collage. I build my brand by just not getting on any of them sites. So I don't say any thing bad about any one. The only thing get on is my blog in school and Question Of The Week that is all I get on. So that is how I build my brand.

I do agree with John Calipari and I disagree at the same time, cause I use social media only to talk to my old friends in and cousin and everywhere around the world. I block the people I don't know and are annoying me. Facebook can be bad but, you can talk to your family and friends far away from you. Social media is fine as long as your parents are looking at what your doing and who you are chatting with, if they aren't with you then if someone is bothering you I would just block them to get rid of them. Social media can also have fake people who make the accounts and put there name as someone else and look at your account and tell a lie that their name is real on Facebook.
Social media can effect my life by not knowing other people and just add them and they ask you everything and they are a stranger. Adding people you don't know can lead them to come to your house and they can rob your house. Adding everything everything on Facebook, and Twitter and what ever you write is true other people see you and can something bad can happen any time.
I am building my brand good cause I don't add people I don't know, and I don't put personal stuff and I be careful to who i'm talking to. I only post stuff once a month and that will be like a poem or a joke. I wont ever put such things down that aren't good for my age.
Everyone can tell where you live what you do and where you work if you have anything about where you live I suggest you to take it down so you cant lead yourself into a bad and dangerous life... Thanks...

I agree with John Calipari that social media has a role on a person! I mean if you post or talk about cute animals and post cute pictures, someone can make a inference that you are a sweet girl/boy! But if you talk about a person and mean rude, someone can easily say that you are not a person that everyone prefers to be with!
Social media does have a affect on me. Because I get to communicate with my friends and I actually figure out by social media. Like when we have snow day every other day someone will usually will say " No schooool!" so I fall back to sleep! But social media helps sometimes too! I always communicate with my friends on social media so that's why it has a affect on me!
I am "building my brand" by not posting or taking pictures that should obviously doesn't belong on the internet! I'll only post happy or funny quotes and things that are going on in my life. And on Snapchat I just always send something funny or I send them a good morning :Dand good night ! But if they are upset or mad I always try to get them to feeling better! I wont to keep "building my brand" because I do not want people to think bad of me! I want people to think good of me!
And that is my opinion on the role of social media!
"University of Kentucky men's basketball coach,John Calipari talks about the role of social media. Do you agree or disagree? How does social media affect your life? How are you "building your brand?"
On "Mike and Mike," Coach Cal (John Calipari) were having a conversation about whether teams should be aloud to have Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites. I think the team (Players) should be aloud to have the privilege to be on those social media sites because they should be responsible enough to know what to post and what not to post! The players may also go to far with their privilege and post something bad or send something bad to other people that they can't take back. This could also ruin somebodies life or how people will think of them, so if Coach Cal will allow them to have the privilege they should be responsible with their social media accounts and not post something bad and I think they can handle this because they are old enough to know what is right. I also think that it is good for the players to have social media accounts because they can put stuff on it, like when their games are or if they win or lose, and who their playing!
I am building my brand by posting stuff on Instagram, like shout-outs for people, pictures or animals, basketball teams, and just funny stuff. I DON'T post any information that people don't need to know because there are people out there that will take your information and try to find you. I also only let people I know follow me because I don't want to take a chance of bad people following me! I always comment on others post, but only if its a nice post and I always send a cute picture of something to a friend if I can!! That's how I am building my brand!
