Is it possible to control your digital reach? How do the social media tools and activities for this badge support your argument?
By completing the exercises associated with this badge (Badge 4) I have acquired a vast amount of learning. In my opinion, it is possible to control your digital reach. Reach refers to the total number of different people or households exposed to a medium during a given period. and this can be seen in the social media tools and activities for this badge (Badge 4).
I feel that the social media tools and activities associated with this badge support my argument as, they show that it is possible to control one’s digital reach. For example, one can control their digital reach through the social media tool of Twitter. As Davidson (2017) said, don’t use more than 3 hashtags in one tweet as it may appear to be spam and reduce your tweets shareability. Hene use less to increase one’s reach and increase the impact on one’s everyday lives and studies.
I also feel that the social media tools and activities associated with this badge support my argument that it is possible to control our digital reach. Liu, Y. (2010) states that Social media tools have become ubiquitous, students use them all the time. The most popular tools are Facebook, Wiki, YouTube, bulletin board, LinkedIn, blogging, and twittering. Meaning that social media tools such as buffer, feedly and facebook etc can enable us to control our digital reach by providing endless opportunities to our social engagements and our studies and everyday lives.
