Social Media Peer Group 2

Here is group two for the social media peer review:

 Andrew D.Marianne M.Deb B.Renee G.

Like I said on the post that introduced peer review, I will give you a choice: you can either share your draft of an essay with your peers as a Google Doc (which has the advantage of allowing your peers to comment in more detail on the draft), or as a page on your WordPress site. Start peer review by the end of the day on Monday, November 27, and finish peer review by the end of the day on Wednesday, November 29.

    Hi everyone. Here is my Google doc, with comments allowed. I am open to all suggestions, so freely comment.

    Hi Andrew,

    You’ve written very thoroughly about your experience with Facebook, and you did a good job of explaining how you use it. I found it well thought out and interesting, but perhaps too long.

    You seem to have focused on wanting to have complex discussions about subjects like politics, religion and world events via social media. It would be good to check our readings to see if you can reference anything that talked about this use of social media, and connect it to your personal Facebook experience.

    Since you found that Twitter (and I assume the other two channels) weren’t good platforms for that type of detailed discussion, are there any other connections that you can make to our readings about the other three channels? If there were pros, in addition to the cons, for these channels, it might be good to talk about those. With what you have written right now, I don’t have a real sense of your experience with the new channels.

    Your ending is pretty abrupt, but I know the document is a draft, and assume you will have a closing paragraph to wrap up your key points.

    One last suggestion – in journalism classes we are taught to break up lengthy paragraphs into multiple shorter ones. It gives the reader time to process each thought and breathe before moving on. I did struggle a bit to read your long paragraphs.

    Doh! It looks like I somehow managed to put Renee into two groups here, so never mind about peer review for her. That’s covered in a different group!

    Hi, guys. Sorry I am so late with this. I spent all my time doing the text to hypertext project cause I thought that was due first. Anyway, I have reviewed your essays and here is the link to mine.
