Create the Digital You

For many personal and professional brands, on-line presence is where there is a level playing field vs the big, giants. To compete, you must first be digitally present.

So, create your individual accounts in google mail (gmail), blogger.com, slideshare.net, linkedin.com and facebook.com. These accounts will be used for our class discussions and for submitting and grading student assignments.

When possible, create a username with the following format: usernamenickname.... For example, if you are juan de la cruz, then your gmail account should ideally be juandelacruz@gmail.com. don't use emails like awesome12@gmail.com. or princess@gmail.com. If you already have a gmail account, then make this second gmail account that follows the naming format discussed here.

If you are a computer techie, go straight to the following links:
