I think social media is a waste of time too. I mean really what's so fun about going "tik tik tik" on your computer or phone. If you want to talk to somebody talk to them in person. And if you say it's easier to talk on social media your just being lazy. How do you think people used to talk to each other back when they didn't have social media.
I mean whats the deal with people faking being other people. Why would you do that any way, to be more popular? But what if someone asks you to meet them in person they'd tell everyone your a fake you'd probably get in trouble by your parents and nobody would like you anymore.
How I create my brand as a writer is that I post blogs that my teacher doesn't tell me to. At the beginning of the year he told us to post things he wanted us to, but after I got done I posted a couple of post. And every time I post I post more sentences than the last.
Well to sum it up you don't need social media to build your own brand!
I disagree with Coach Calipari about social media because he said '' It's a waste of time'' and I think it's a great way to keep in touch with friends or even with teachers. But I do agree with him on there are some bullies out there, last year I was on Instagram and I posted a picture of me doing a scorpion and this one little girl told me that I stink at scorpions.When I first saw the comment I thought to my self what should I do, so I told my mom and she told me to block her. I felt horrible and I didn't post anything for along time. I'm glad for two things on social media that there is a block button because a lot of us would have bullies on are page and nobody likes a bully pushing them on the internet cause I know that's were I can be away from all of the bulling. The second thing I like about social media there is a private button. A private button is a button that you can chose who can see your things.
I think that social media has affect my life because everywhere we look we can always see some type of technology in someones hand. It has affect my family's life also, just a couple months ago my older brother got an iPod and the only way you could us it was with WiFi, we had to get WiFi to work all are electronics.
I think I'm building my brand because I post things that make other fell happy. A lot of times I post pictures of me or of other random things. I don't post thing to bring other people down. Some others should watch what they are putting on social media because it might hurt others without even knowing. That's it for now! How do you fell about social media? BYE!!!
John Calipari said that we should ban social media like Facebook and Twitter.
I agree with John Calipari because if you have a Facebook or Twitter when you post bad stuff about other people and negative stuff on your page when people Google you 10 years from now there going to see all that stuff you posted. I also agree with John Calipari because a NBA sports team could put a picture or a video of there NBA sports team and somebody could comment on that picture or video the person posted and say mean stuff like your guys basketball suck and number 42 can even make one basketball in the hoop and the stuff that the person said the NBA basketball team could see it and get them all down and then they might just wanna stop playing basketball just because a cyber bully could said mean stuff about there NBA team.
I also disagree with John Calipari we should not ban social media because not all people on social media sites post bad stuff on there Facebook or Twitter pages so they should not have to be banned from social media because they was not doing anything wrong.
Another reason you should be careful what you post on Facebook, Twitter and other social sites like them is because if your trying to get a good job somewhere when the person your trying to get a job from might Google you and they will see the stuff you post about other people and how your always negative.
Some people Facebook and Twitter and other social sites like that there are really mean people like if you posted a picture of you and your soccer team then somebody can comment on your pictures and say I've seen your guys soccer team play and you guys suck then when people say that the person that posted that pictures will feel bad and maybe even quit soccer because what that person commented on their picture.
I think that I should stop posting crazy stuff on my Facebook and Twitter page because I see not being able to get a good job because of what I posted on my social media sites.
My post today is about University of Kentucky men's basketball coach,John Calipari talks about the role of social media, if agree or disagree about the message,How social media affects my life, and how I`m building my brand.Keep reading to hear what I think.
Social media is not a friend of mine. I completely think social media can be dumb, stupid, and all it does is cause drama depending on how you use it. I completely agree with John Calipari. If someone uses social media they need to be nice, stay positive, and not bring drama into it. Why bring your trouble online where someone could get hurt from it. Always say positive things online never be rude it could destroy your life or someone you knows life.
I don't have a Facebook, instagram, snap chat, or twitter. I do have this blog and the question of the week board though and I love it.Which means social media still affects my life.Like not having a Facebook, instagram, snap chat, or twitter means there could be cool stuff on there and I get left out sometimes because I have no clue what they are taking about.It sucks not being able to join in taking about that funny picture or whatever.My friends are great though still because they don't rub it in my face that they have those things and I don`t.Later in life I will have things such as Facebook, instagram, snap chat, or twitter but to tell the truth I don't care are about it right now(shh don`t tell). You do have to be 13! LOL!
I personally think I am building my brand!I say nice things when I comment on peoples blogs and I am positive on the blog and the question board. I always want to do my best online.If you have social media build your brand!
I agree with Kentucky men's basketball, John Calipari about the role of social media because like you have a photo of you hitting a old lady with metal baseball bat which people think you a mean person or you have a photo you nose-kissing a puppy which people think u are a nice person and a dog person. I have a Facebook which I have a lot of nice post on there but if something makes me mad like a band that copy-rights songs like story of my life by Green Day.
here are some of the things John Calipari said in the video:
“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,” Calipari said. “You cannot be defined, if you are on social media, by somebody else. You will define yourself. And if it’s negative, that’s your fault.”
“We’re trying to tell those kids, hey, you build your brand or you break your brand down,” Calipari said.
Now, first things first, Pitino’s comments earlier in the week about social media were taken a bit out of context. When Pitino called social media a “waste of time,” he wasn’t necessarily saying he was against social media; rather, he just doesn’t think his players should be on there all the time and reading what people are saying to them. He feels they could be doing something more valuable with their time.
“This is no disrespect — the coaches you mentioned (Tom Izzo and Rick Pitino), I respect them all — they know nothing about social media. Nothing,” Calipari said. “They don’t do it. They feel it’s another job.”
All of those comments are all true and I agree with John Calipari.
In Language Arts Mr. McGuire has us watch a video of coach John Calipari talking about the role of social media. We were told to answer some questions to tell what we think about the role of social media.
I agree with John Calipari's opinion on social media. I think it's okay for student-athletes to have Twitter, Facebook and etc. Just if they are going to they need to learn what to respond to and what not to.
Social media effects my life big time. I spend most of my time on my laptop, on the internet. I play games with friends online whilst skyping. I have an instagram and I spend a lot of time on there, on my phone.
I am building my brand by staying out of things I'm not suppose to. Let's say that someone asks me for some of my personal information, I just ignore the person and not telling the person anything. Also another thing is someone could post something bad and/or inappropriate and tag me in it.

I agree with John Calipari Twitter and Facebook is a okay as long as you use it right. If one of the basketball players wright some thing and it is taking the wrong way so people can be effendi. Social media is a way to talk to your friends.
Twitter and Facebook can be a playground for bully's. What I don't get is that if a person gets bully why do they keep getting on Twitter and Facebook? If they don't want to get bulled don't get on.
