Writing for Social Media: A journalistic art form

Posted by Signe Trewyn on November 30th, 2015


Earlier on in the semester, we explored social media and how post in a timely manner.

The article I found is all about a class teaching students how to write for social media effectively. I believe this is important because this week has to do with comments which is important when it comes to social media.

The author points out how to Tweet with a 140 character limit as well as LinkedIn which is by nature professional. There are many examples of what can be written on Twitter in the article itself.

The article also goes over writing for memes which is a picture with words on it. I am fairly new to memes but they can appear on social media as well.

My experience with writing for social media is that I must keep Facebook posts and Twitter short so that there is not too much writing within the post.
