I agree because I think what you write gives other people an image of you, like you write something mean, people think you're but write something nice, people think you're write something cool, people think you're . See what I mean? That is why I agree with coach Cal. Plus, one of my favorite song's lyrics is "face your problems, don't Facebook them." That's how I'm "building my brand."

Yes. I agree because something like Facebook can effect peoples life. Because if anyone says something bad or something mean. Then if your friends at school read it then you could be embarrassed.
If I were a coach I wouldn't want them on Facebook. Because they could get upset or mad from a Facebook post. Then they could get mad and not want to got to the basketball or football game.
Facebook , Twitter or Instagram is something were you talk to people and post pictures. All of those can get people mad or upset. That is why is some parents don't let their kid have some of those because it can effect your life.
I agree with coach Cal when he says when social media websites are used positively it is good and when used negativley it is a bad thing. With social media websites people can put other people down and people can say harsh things about people. Social media can hurt people's feelings by things their friend's and people might say about them.
If you are trying to apply for a job, some businesses will check social media websites and see what you have posted and if you have posted bad things then you might not get the job. So the things you post on social media websites today can hurt later in the future. I also think that if you have a phone, you can just message your friends instead of getting on the computer and messaging them.
I also think social media gets in the way of spending time with your family!!! I think people are spending way to much time on social media websites. There will always be social media websites but you will never always have your family!!!!
I think social media affects my life in a good way because I am not on a social media websites where people are saying bad things and putting me and my friends down!!!! I think I benefit from not being on social media websites because if somebody is talking bad about one of my friends or family members that person and I might get in an argument and may result in a fight.
I am building my brand by being nice and kind to everyone I meet and always being helpful to all my friends and family. I think that I am building my brand in a positive way that I think will help me in the future!!!!!!!!!!

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?
Lately at school we have been talking about social media and how it effects your life and your reputation. We watched a video about what John Calipari thought about social media. He thought that social media such as Facebook, Twitter and having blogs on the internet made your reputation or your brand and what you put on there effects you. He also thought that kids should use social media, but they should be properly trained on how to use it and not to write bad stuff about themselves or any one else.
I agree with John Calipari that social media does effect you and it does make your reputation. I think that whatever you put on social media is what people will think of you. Just like John Calipari said, "Have you built your brand or have you built your brand down." Which means if you post bad stuff about you then people will think you are not smart and that you are a hater, but if you put good stuff about you and good advice then people will think you are smart and you are building your brand not breaking it down.
I also think that social media not only effects you but it also effects the people around you. So if you put bad stuff on social media about you or the people around you like your family then your family might feel embarrassest about you. They could also be hurt because if you put something bad about them on social media that could make them feel bad and also the whole world know what you said about them and you would end up breaking your brand down not building it up.
Even though social media effects other people it can have just as big effect on me. It has a big effect on me by when my friends have a Facebook or Twitter or some other social media thing. The reason that has a big effect on me is because when my friends have a Facebook and a Twitter they are talking and communicating on Facebook and Twitter and they are talking about it at school, which makes me feel left out because I do not have a Facebook or a Twitter. I think that that has a really big effect on me.
I am also building my brand. An example of me building my brand is at school when I get on my blog. When I get on my blog I also write about something, like good advice and good blog post. I also check to make sure I have spelled everything correct, that the post sound good and that I have caplization and punctuation in my sentences. The reason I do this so people do not think I am dumb and so people think that I am not one of those people who do not care about what they write and what kind of brand they build. Another example is when I am commenting about someone on my blog. I make sure that when I comment it is a good comment. Not some trashy one, that will break my brand.
Social media can break or build your brand depending on what you put on it. I think that if you are trained properly and try to build your brand on any social media site that social media will turn out to be a great way to create your reputation. It all depends on how you want people to think of you.
Do you agree or disagree? How does social media affect your life? How are you "building your brand? Do I Agree Or Disagree - I agree that you should be safe and not be mean every time your on social media. Anyone that uses social media should only use it for good reasons. I get sick of all the drama that people put and are always fighting . If you use it for bad reasons I really don't see the point. Or if your always mean. I could care less what your like . How Does It Affect My Life - It doesn't really affect my life, because I'm not the kind to be bad or cause drama. On the other hand it does. My mom will say LEXI DO THIS DO THAT!!!! I usually just sit on my phone on social media like Instagram, Snapchat, or Facebook. Then all of a sudden my mom starts screaming! I think I was on it to much. That's why I'm only aloud on it for like one or two hours because I got a C on my report card. So I have been studying and reading instead of always being on my Iphone. Building Your Brand - My brand is like on Facebook I don't really post anything but I'm the kind that just post like something simple, like a song, or a picture that's it. Same on any other social media. My brand isn't like a huge snob or brat. It's more like normal !
I think social media rots your brain. People like my sister she will get off the bus go straight in to to her room and stay on her laptop for the rest of the night/till my mom make her go to bed.
Yesterday I went in to her room and asked what she wanted on her pizza and she loves pizza, and she literally has a sigh that says "go away ". And I think that is a little stupid that she is on Facebook, but she will not do her homework either and that social media/Faceboook is keeping her away from doing her homework witch helps her learn, and my sister is failing second grade.
I use social media but not as much as my Facebook I get on about 60 minutes a week.I run my beagle/Max sometimes in the corn field and I ask my sister and I get the " Go AWAY" sign.And that wastes her time and spending time with the family.
I have a question for you. Look up "no social media challenge". Challenge yourself.
I agree with John Calipari when he says “Twitter is an opportunity — Facebook is an opportunity — to say what you feel, to try to pick people up, to try to be positive, to try to add something to society, to try to let people see you transparently. If you post something bad on Facebook or any other social media site it could reflect bad on you later in life.
Social media does not affect my life at all because I do not do it because my parents do not let me, well my Mom might but my Dad will not let me. If I did have a Facebook page I would not put anything mean on it, I might think it but I won't say it or type it.
When John talk about the role of social media I strongly agree. Why would people have any type of social media if all they know how to do is say mean things. I think that if people are always posting bad things they should be banded from all social media sites.Social media is for people to say positive things and write about yourself or anything that you like to write about. Or even to talk to your family that doesn't live by. Its not for people to run their mouth or say mean things. Half the time people do it because they don't like you or just trying to make you really mad or upset. Social media effects my life a hole bunch my mom is always having to check her Facebook to see if she has any messages or any new posts by someone. Which if my mom isn't on Facebook shes on Pintrest.
But I'm not as bad as my mom but I'm probably close to it. I normally get on Facebook and Instagram.All of the social media is "building my brain" because I write stuff how I feel or just something that I decided to write about. It shows people in the world the real you. It shows how you act, how you talk, if your good or bad or if you pay attention in school or not!There's a lot of people that comment negative stuff instead of nice and positive stuff. Which in my thoughts why would people comment bad things. if people don't have nice things to say don't say anything at all. I mean simple as that is it that hard to say nice things or nothing at all.I mean there is people out in the world that hurt themselves because of some stupid person thought it would be funny to say something mean and negative. Which it really breaks a person down when people do this stuff. So as a solution if people can be nice and post positive things. Or they can stay off of social medias and don't get into other peoples business. If you don't like them that doesn't mean to go and say mean things.
I agree with coach John Caliper about the social media because on Facebook I write post of who I am and what I do and who I am. If you get on my Facebook page I have stuff that's nice and who I am and what I do. My main picture is me and its not not me. My status page is about me. I never write anything bad about somebody even if they are annoying and get on my nerves so I want to punch them in the face to make them shut up.I always write about my life and people who are nice. If somebody gives me a compliment I might write it on my Face book page and message them a compliment back.
Social media is a good and bad thing. It has its ups and downs just like anything else. If you post something anyone can see it all over the world. That is a good thing and a bad thing. also. If you post something personal and you think only your friends can see it. Well they are not the only ones people out there are hackers and they will try as hard as they can to get your password. After they have your password there is no telling what they will do they could do anything. I agree John Calipari with letting his team have use social media and about building your brand.
A way social media is a good and bad is if you have friend that lives really far a way the you can talk to them without spending all the money to travel where every they are just to talk to them. You can just get on a social media and talk about anything. Of course that is a bad thing two because anyone can hack your account and read what you just told them. Social media has another really bad thing too.
If your trying to get a new job you keep applying to things everywhere. Then one night you decide its been a long hard week I going go have fun. So you go to a party. At that party you drink an awful lot. You can't even stand straight anymore. Someone at the party decides to talk a lot of pictures of you with all of the alcohol in your hands the next day you get on Facebook and see that all the pictures that were posted you got tagged in them. The people that you sent a job application too they get online and search your name. They see the pictures from the night before. You just lost that job they don't want someone who drinks a lot.
Social media doesn't really takes over my life. I like to get one Facebook and Instagram every day. I don't let it take over my life ill check it every few hours to see what people are up to. But if my family goes out to dinner. We all are on our iPhone's from the time we get there till we get our food. My dad doesn't like for us to do anything on our phones when we have our food. But if one of his friends call he can be on it.
I agree with John Calipari because letting his team use social media is a good thing if you tell them how to do it. With building the brand if someone post things that are positive like complements to people and something that will make a person happy then people with think your a nice happy person. If you post mean things like I hate this I hate that and stuff that would make people up set people will think your not a very nice person. So if you post good things that are you like not someone else then you building your brand. If you post all the mean things then your breaking down your brand.
Today I am supposed to write about the role of social media. Do I agree or disagree? How does social media affect I life? How am I "building my brand?
I agree with Social Media because you can talk to your friend, play games and have fun, and I think that Social Media is a bad thing because you can get in trouble for being on it to much, and you can say bad things on accident. Then you can't erase them.
I think that social media affect my life because I think that I get on Social Media to much instead of doing homework or something else that I need to do. I think that I should be outside more than on Social Media. I think that Social Media suck me in and does not let me go.
I think that I am building my band because I put positives things on my blog and on Facebook, and I think that I am a positive person.

I think that social media is just plain stupid and weird. I am not allowed social media but if I could I would not even use social media.I think that social media is plain stupid because you don't need to be on the computer all day every day you could be reading, going outside and play,play with your friends,play with your toys, go to the park, anything that does not come to social media.Another reason I think social media is stupid and weird because like Facebook and twitter because you could post really bad stuff about your parents or tell people to be rude and selfish and all kind of stuff.I also agree because all of those NBA basket ball players are just saying really bad stuff about your coach around the whole entire world and not every one is liking what they are posting. Another reason I think social media is weird and stupid because you should not even be on Facebook or twitter or any other places that you can post any thing because you faking your ages and you are not suppose to and you have to be 18 years old or older.Another reason I think social media is plain stupid and weird because you don't need to be on Facebook or twitter at all.
I agree with John Calipari that social media affects your life because their are pros and cons to social media like you can have good conversations with your friends or that people get into fights or people curse and they do bad things. 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. Calipari agrees with that notion to a point, but instead of banning social media, Coach Cal believes it’s better to educate them on how to use it properly. Because if people learn how to use it correctly their won't be as much as fights and people posting bad stuff and they won't have to ban social media. “We’re trying to tell those kids, hey, you build your brand or you break your brand down,” Calipari said.
To do that, Calipari said UK teaches the players how to manage their accounts, the school monitors what the kids say, and the university brings in professionals to talk with the students and teach them how to best utilize the tool.

I agree John because he is trying to keep he player no track and recommends to his players that they don’t read theirs either. A lot of coaches and people are suggesting they get off things like Twitter and Facebook, but Coach Cal doesn’t agree cause people need to chat no Twitter and Facebook to there friend and other people and other family members.
