Social media in economy

Introduction

Today, social media has become a part of our life. In addition to people using social media to communicate with each other, to meet entertainment needs, and so on, there are some effects that extend. In various social media, information spreads at an incredible speed, enabling people to learn more quickly and effectively about what is happening in other countries and places around the world. With the rapid development of social media technology, social media has formed a huge industrial group, which has a great impact on social and economic life.

What is social media?

Social media is a tool and platform for people to share their opinions, insights, experiences and opinions with each other. The emergence of new media has actually led to a high degree of integration, or convergence between social and media. Out of this convergence comes a new phenomenon, is social media. Some of the most popular social media at the moment are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, WeChat, and so on. In the old days, social interaction as we know it was face-to-face. And now it is common to see a family eating at the same table without any communication, just bowing their heads silently playing mobile phones. Social networking in the new era is no longer a simple face-to-face social interaction, but an online social interaction with people at the other end through mobile media or mobile media. For example, Twitter is where we are free to post what we want and that includes words, pictures and videos. People can interact with me by leaving comments under what I post. Of course, people can get the latest information from Twitter and leave their opinions in the first place. And people can find things and people by searching for tags. If the network does not give people more initiative, social media will lose the mass base and technical support. Without an interactive model, people’s opinions will not be heard and demand will be suppressed.

The socio-economic impact of social media

As an integral part of the whole social system, the communication system is closely related to other social systems. In social systems, the relationship between the media and the economic system is particularly close. In modern society, social media has become an important part of the communication system (Fujun L & Xin L, 2019). While bringing disruptive changes to the field of social communication, social media has also brought a very profound impact on the field of social economy. In this era of rapid dissemination of information, many enterprises and organizations pass the product information to the public through various media, but also through the media to obtain the information of the consumer market. However, social media is faster, richer, and more interactive in terms of information content. With the popularization and wide application of the Internet, more and more economic activities begin to be carried out on the Internet, the most representative of which is online shopping. Social media and shopping platform clients have become the best choice for people to shop online. The emergence of social media and the popularization and wide application of the Internet bring opportunities to online shopping, which brings opportunities to the economic development of online shopping-related industries such as e-commerce and logistics. The most representative ones are e-commerce and logistics services. E-commerce is the use of social media to achieve consumer online shopping, online electronic payment, and other economic activities. The economic benefits generated by social media are mainly based on the openness and interactivity of the social media environment, and the rapid spread of economic information increases the interactivity of information. Moreover, social media drives experiential services and investment opportunities. The Internet enhances the consumer shopping experience, and social media brings interaction. Consumers can share interactive experiences such as eating in a certain restaurant or watching movies with other consumers. The sharing of shopping experience can make products and services with good word of mouth attract more consumers. The first consumer and enterprises, consumers and consumers can interact and share anytime and anywhere, good service, good sharing, can make a good brand to win more consumers. The second product price is clear, who wins more consumers, who are willing to pay for better experience service, the enterprise will win the market. The little red book app, for example, allows consumers to write reviews of a restaurant or store, and people can comment in the posts of bloggers, who can infer whether they are willing to pay for this service.

The growth of social media has led to the growth of other related industries

The rapid development of the social media industry has driven the development of new media derivative industries and other related industries, such as network construction, website maintenance, cultural creativity, content provision, logistics, technical services, and other industries. At the same time, social media and traditional media are converging. The traditional content production mode and communication channel have been broken, and the new news production mechanism is being conceived and formed (Fujun L & Xin L, 2019). The rapid growth of the social media industry has also driven the development of new media monitoring and analysis and new media services.

Conclusion

Social media has influenced every aspect of economic life and has become an important economic driver. With the increasing development and maturity of new media technology, social media is favored by more and more capital. Investment companies and commercial institutions will strengthen their investment in new media, which will further accelerate the development of social media industry, and social media industry will occupy a greater proportion in the social economy (Fujun L & Xin L, 2019). At the same time, with social media as the medium for the dissemination of economic information, the cost of people releasing and spreading information has been greatly reduced, and the efficiency of data processing has been greatly improved. This brings convenience to the development of social media economy and promotes the development of social media economy towards informatization and digitalization, thus promoting the transformation of social economy.

Be a Good Tiktok

I think to be a good professional TikTok first needs to have their own creative imagination. Always copying others without your own ideas will keep the audience from feeling fresh. Material selection is a key, wonderful content naturally can attract countless fans for you like. Make a content plan before shooting tiktok, and the video can be interspersed with the latest trends to add a sense of trend to the video. The second is more important is the title copy. During the play of the video, the copy actually becomes a note. You can play a role in keeping fans interested in your entire video. It has to be fun and make people want to interact with you. Like, retweet, comment on your videos; After reading them, you can answer your questions in the comments section. The ultimate goal of our titles is to trigger users to watch our videos. So no matter which style you use, as long as it can reach the psychology of the user, then you can try it.

Assignment 2

The lesson I chose is “The Intersection of Digital and Media Literacy” from the Mediasmarts.ca website. This section describes how skills and competencies for digital literacy and media literacy intersect and provide us with essential skills for playing, learning, and working as citizens of the digital world. For new concepts like those, I think understanding the main concepts is the most important thing. Because only after people understand the meaning of it can they learn the deeper content. The powerful digital bystanders always are networked and interactive, they want to collect people’s personal information.

But for a course where the concept is very complex and difficult to understand. In order for learners to master this knowledge, more examples should be given in combination with facts. So I think we need to change the narrative of this lecture, not just to explain how the skills and abilities of word literacy and media literacy intersect, but to give examples of how they intersect. At the same time can also add some pictures to help learners understand.

I typed K-pop culture into the search bar of Tencent Video, and then I found a video that talked about how K-pop has taken the world by storm in a short time. This video describes the development of K-pop culture from the aspects of South Korean movies and TV dramas, music, clothes, food, and so on. After watching the video, students can respond to the video by leaving a comment below. There is a comment section at the bottom of the video where all viewers can leave their thoughts and opinions in the comments section. At the same time, it can also communicate with other viewers and video publishers. I suggest setting a voting area at the bottom of the video, allowing learners to vote on the reasons for the development of the Korean wave in their minds. In this way, the video publisher can get centralized feedback, so as to understand the learners’ thoughts and the purpose of interactive learning. This will apply to the design techniques of the web page to complete the voting area setup. At the same time, learners can also see the choices of others in the voting area, so as to get to know their thoughts in time. Both the designer and the learner will use the medium of the video site to set up and get feedback. As for how to design a video to allow the audience or students to participate in more or better activities, I think it is possible to put some questions at the end of the video that can make the audience think, and then let the audience post their thoughts in the comments section below the video. In this way, the audience will not only be thinking while watching the video so that they can better participate in the activity

Pod 5 Peer Review

I think PowerPoint is a very good form of Interactive Learning Resource. When I read the document, I can understand the key points you emphasized in a very simple and direct way. It is also very interesting and a good start. Before introducing the interactive learning resources, you first provided some discussion for me to follow along with your ideas. That’s very good. Before I understand this resource, I can think about these questions, which will help me to understand this resource in a deeper way.

In the design of other contents, I think you have done a great job, not only the clear introduction of the text but also other resources such as pictures, which are enriched the interactive learning resources. In the technology use, you wrote about the universal design for learning which was all about supportive and inclusive practices in classrooms. And I thought maybe you could give some examples of what it means, and reconnect it with classroom inclusion so that it’s a little bit more clear to us as readers.

For your assessment plan, you designed it to make us think and our statements must be answerable with “yes”, “no”, or “I will try”. It’s a very good idea. But perhaps you might consider in the activity section: “Choose your bear request from each group member and have them read it out for the group to respond to.” You can design some parts that can be completed by a single person. Because of the current epidemic, we may have some problems in time and distance to contact our team members.

Overall I think the interactive learning resources in Pod 5 are very interesting. You have chosen an instructional approach that is very much in line with your topic, and you have used text and pictures, and videos to explain and analyze it. The assessment plan also revolves around the theme, so that readers can deepen their understanding and think about the theme through the evaluation plan.

Currently, the world is in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic, and people have to be isolated from their homes for safety reasons. Many schools have switched from offline teaching to online teaching, including our school. For those people, emergency remote learning is the most convenient and needed way for them to learn the course. Emergent remote learning is an online, hybrid, remote, distributed or mobile learning environment designed by educators. It is very suitable for learners who, for some reason, cannot do face-to-face teaching. At the same time, online education can overcome the limitation of space, no matter how far away, as long as there is a network, classroom teaching can be carried out. Some teachers and students are not in the same city, or even in the same country, and they can still teach in the classroom. Overcoming this distance also saves parents the conflict of picking up and dropping off their children and commuting. During the epidemic, parents do not have to worry about the health and safety of their children who go to school alone. And online education can overcome the time limit. For students, especially primary school students, learning attention is limited, may be distracted in a few minutes when listening to the class, may just miss the important content. Online education can solve this problem very well, infinite playback, perfect solution.

Because this form of teaching is a special measure under special circumstances, there are still problems that need to be adjusted and constantly improved. For example: at the beginning, some teachers and students are not skilled in operation; Mobile company guarantee is not in place; The course arrangement is wrong, and the course content and presentation are rough. o solve these problems, there are some suggestions as follows: 1. Choose your learning platform carefully. 2. Online teaching should adopt different forms of organization and implementation according to the actual situation. The teaching content should refer to the school’s daily teaching situation and consider the development of students’ learning ability and character cultivation. It should also pay attention to students’ pre-learning, let students keep up with the pace of teachers’ teaching, use various ways to increase the interaction between teachers and students, and guide students to focus on independent learning. 3. Manage your study time scientifically.

Inquiry-based learning is based on the basic goal of “cultivating students with an attitude of never being satisfied and pursuing excellence, and cultivating students’ ability to discover, propose and solve problems”. Students from the study life and social life to obtain a variety of topics or project design, design and production of works as the basic carrier of learning; The basic content is the scientific research methods learned in the whole process of raising and solving problems, the rich and multi-faceted experience, and the scientific and cultural knowledge acquired; Under the guidance of teachers, the basic teaching form is to carry out research independently by students in the way of inquiry-based learning. Inquiry-based learning is different from comprehensive courses, although in many cases, it involves comprehensive knowledge, it is not a comprehensive course of several disciplines, nor is it equivalent to activity courses. Although it is an independent activity carried out by students, it is not a general activity, but a subject research activity based on scientific research. It is also not equivalent to problem courses. Although it also takes problem as the carrier, it is not receptive learning, but inquiry-based learning as the main way of learning. Inquiry-based learning is divided into three key points´╝Ü

  1. Inquiry-based learning is a kind of practical education and teaching activity.
  2. Inquiry-based learning emphasizes the connection and application of knowledge.
  3. Inquiry-based learning can fully mobilize students’ interest and enthusiasm in learning.

The essence of inquiry-based learning is to let students experience the process of knowledge generation and formation. To enable students to learn to use their mental work independently. In the process of personal inquiry, students experience setbacks and failures, twists and turns, success and excitement. This learning experience is the basis for them to understand the nature and spirit of science. Inquiry-based learning guides students to acquire knowledge or information independently, which is of great significance to students’ learning, life-long learning, and sustainable development.
