Within this site I have integrated my personal social media sites. Embedded into the riht side of the blog you will fine the “Social”tab. There I have click throught links to my Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pintrest.
Below the Social tab I have also embedded a live twitter feed!!
I am very glad to have completed my units for this semester, despite a concussion (my fault) and a broken ankle (also my fault)…I am very clumsy… but I am also finished my wordpress blog!!
Listed Below are some resources I found very useful when completing this unit!
A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of Oxford’s vast main library, the Bodleian, and how its staff are working to make this ancient institution ready for future generations of readers.
The State Library of Victoria are pro’s at Social Media…Maybe they are previous students? who knows! They are using all of the main social media platforms, with the exception of Pintrest, and using them very well. They are maintaining the very large following with high quality content that is relevant and interesting. They are using each social media site for its intended purpose.Facebook for long form posting and sharing articles, Twitter for short form and library updates,YouTube for Videos,Flickr for photo galleries and Instagram for Day to day images.
It is important for people to be aware that copyright still applies to digital materials uploadedto theinternet. As a rule of thumb, any digital material, written, image ect, taken from another person, or that is not yours, cant be uploaded onto the internet. You are exempt from this if you have gained the permission from the owner of said digital material. As you donot have the right to distribute other people’s works without their permission, in some cases, legal action can take place. Understanding the importance of copyright within social media is key in preventing copyright issue from occurring.
Linked below is a wonderful source outlining further the copyright implications with regard to uploading material to social media.
Surprisingly, I found it quite difficult to find credible information about social media etiquette. I found this paper that highlights some do’s and dont’s that are pretty great and also found a diagram that i will attach below that displays it in a fun way!
- ” Everything lives on the Internet indefinitely!

Now that social media has become part of our day to day lives, its easy to forget that when we use these sites we are leaving a digital footprint which contains a lot of information. Accessing and using Social Media sites online pose certain dangers to our privacy. These footprints we leave behind, once they are on the web they are their for good.
Some simple steps to lower the risks involved are pretty easy to follow so listen up!
- Edit the privacy setting to suit your needs!
- Make sure to turn off location services. Most social media sites automatically upload your location when posting.
- Keep your passwords secure and try and use different password for each site.
These few simple steps are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to online privacy. There are plenty of online resources that have plenty more information on online security, . I found the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner goes into a little more detail about the risks and what you can do if the worse does happen.
