Ello - The "Anti" Social Network?

Have social networking sites become so popular, so blasé, so... painfully normal that we actually need an "anti" social network? I think we can all agree, when your parents and grandparents are using the same technology you are, it's time to look for something better. Sure there is snapchat, but how many nudie pics can you send before it gets old?

Social Media and Your Professional Career

Although I signed up for a Klout account over a year ago, I never considered it anything more than a way for the web-addicted to boost their egos. I coincidentally read an article about Klout a couple weeks ago but shirked it off—what could it really matter? After entering this course, however, I realize that it actually means a lot more than that.

Klout Score

Klout is something that was very new to me before taking this course. I understand the Klout is used to measure your social media usage with a Klout score. The Klout score helps you gage how you can improve in areas of social media based on which sites you use. When I first logged into Klout I had a Score of 10. After a few days and increased activity on my social media accounts my Klout score has raised to 51.

How Your Klout Score Can Help Your Professional Career

Klout is a social media website that measures how effective people are when interacting with others on social media pages. It also measures how others on social media pages talk about you. Klout uses social media analytics to rank its users, with a number between 1-100. The higher the score, the more influence you have.

He also gave me some pointers on how I could accomplish this goal. I plan to thank him for his support, and advice on how to about doing this.

What Supporting Skills Should You Be Sharpening?

The web design community frequently discusses the need for a "T" shaped skill set. This refers to the idea that you have a broad base of skills (the top of the T) and a deep focus in a particular area (the stem of the T.) This is particularly important in web design because of the wide range of tasks a "web designer" might perform. For example, on a given day I might review proposals, meet with clients, document functionality, write code, design interactions or craft a brand identity.
