Select a trending topic connected to the business management field or professional field, research the topic online and/or in academic databases, and use the Template to create a mock tweet, e-mail, and Facebook post informing others what you have learned and discovered; these only need to be posted in the Discussion Board itself rather than on social media. You may use your topic that you researched in Unit 1.
Tweet: In 140 characters, express your thoughts on what you learned in your research; also, please include a hashtag.
E-mail: Compose a short e-mail relating to your chosen topic. The e-mail must include the following fields: a â€œto:â€ and â€œsubject:â€ line and an appropriate â€œsignature;â€ you should have an introductory greeting, set the context, provide the interesting information, including at least one reference to a source, and have a concluding statement; the e-mail should not exceed 6â€“8 sentences total.
Facebook: In a posting to your Facebook followers, craft a summary of your discovery that also expresses your reaction to the information and possible ways your followers might need or use your discovery.
Purpose and audience: For each entry, explain the â€œvoiceâ€ you have adopted (your perspective), your intended audience, and your purpose behind the communication. Also, discuss how the different platforms affected your purpose, audience, and message.
Justification: In a brief, 3â€“5-sentence paragraph, explain some of your choicesâ€”such as vocabulary, tone, details and examples, and type of research citedâ€”that shape the message and how the message might affect people.
