Week 4 Part 1

Week 4 Part 1 I feel the Penny Juice website is one that can use some work. I feel the layout and access is mediocre but the fact that it looks like it was laid out in 10 minutes is the issue. I think the colors clash and its ok to use many colors but they all need to be in the same color field and have to be arranged correctly. The links and information I think is well done but I think it is very plane and boring I also noticed they only have a Facebook which is also very plain and a telephone number to call so not a lot of ways to connect with them but they display information well. When I went to the gatesnfences website I jumped back and was very uneased. It is very chaotic and unorganized at first glance. There is endless information laid out in an unorganized fashion. The side links are all the same colors so you defiantly need to know exactly what you are looking for, there is no direction or assistance.
The Apple website is in my opinion the best and cleanest. It is laid out n…

Week 3 Part 2

Week3 Part2 I commented on Wojcik_Michele, Particelli_Blair, Brock_Stacy blogs.
1)Adorama (photography store) Facebook- 15min., Twitter- 45min, Google+- 35weeks, YouTube-vast video upload 3 hours but they have channels that are constant, Pinterest- can’t tell but there’s a lot on there, and Instagram- 3hours I found out about this company though social media and they have a huge following. They are a company that have reviews on photography products and videos that can educate people on photography and they sell and rent many different products. They use social media to educate and spread information and draw in customers and they use their website to sell their products. I feel they are utilizing social media very well and that is a major reason the business is so popular in the photography world.
2) B&H Facebook- 3hours, Twitter- 28min., Instagram-21hours, YouTube- 20hours, Tumbler- 4hours, Soundcloud podcast- 4days, Snapchat-…


I personal have never communicated with any business using social media but I have had some interaction experiences. one time there was a Boba tea shop down in San Diego and they were doing a contest type event where if you went down and purchased a tea from them, then took a photo of the tea and something around the store, and posted the photo on Facebook you could win a free tea. So, I went down and took a photo and posted it and got a free Boba tea. Another experience I had was I won tickets for a pool party in Las Vegas. It was a contest on Facebook where you “like and share” to be entered in the contest to win 2 free tickets to a pool party for EDC week in Las Vegas, fortunately for me the contest was kind of rigged and my friend was friends with the person running it so 3 friends and I won the tickets which was amazing. The only other communication for me would be using platforms with reviews like Yelp. I feel those are great platforms for businesses to use because the bu…

Week 2: Overview of Social Media
My belief is every social media excluding some websites have primarily been made for personal uses but most of them have evolved to be personal, businesses, and many more uses. They are designed to help accommodate the human species in a modern and technological world. There are endless social media platforms for personal and business use including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn,Tumbler, Pinterest, Behance, Etsy, etc. Tumbler and Pinterest seem to me like the most used for personal use. The majority of people on those forums are just posting all the things they like. I follow a lot of photographers and nerdy things on Tumbler and Pinterest and it is all just people posting what they like or want and is is rarely used to sell anything or even to promote any business. 
I feel Facebook is the most useful social media platform for businesses to promote themselves. As a photographer I feel Instagram is the best social media platform to use to promot…

Week1A: My Template

I chose to use this template because I am a nature photographer and I feel like this was the best template that represented me. I love the blue and black colors together and feel it is a powerful dominate color pallet that shows I am a strong professional. As a nature photographer, I like the tree image in the template. The colors in the image mach the rest of the template very well. I enjoy going on hikes and photographing trees and nature. I feel by using this template my posts will be able to be easily accessible and laid out in a very clean and organized manner so that my readers can navigate my blog easily.
