One specific piece of writing that stood out to me from the exercise we did during the first day of class was ” The second learning objective allows you to express yourself, through an online identity. A digital identity is how one can portray themselves, through technology, and through various types of social media. Sites such as Tumblr, Youtube, and Facebook are all places where people can create a digital identity. Digital identities allow you to showcase whatever talent that you want to share with the world, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a talent, it can be thoughts, feelings or even a collection of things you like displayed through an online profile. ” I decided to choose this specific post because I can agree and relate to using social media to express myself. I use social media on a daily basis to keep up to date with my friends and family. I personally use Instagram to post my pics for my followers to view. When I post up my pictures on Instagram I am sharing it with my friends , and this is a creation of a digital identity. The benefit of creating a digital identity allows people to post anything they wish to share with others. Having a digital identity is similar to being an author of a book you can write whatever you feel like and people will read it if they are interested in the piece. This quote relates to me in terms of whats most important in this class because we the students will be creating our very own digital identities using word press and other tools. This class will allows us to explore and express ourselves through writings , posts, and images to share with the public.
