I teach a class in the College of Information Studies at the University of Maryland called “Becoming a Social Media Influencer”. It’s a hands-on class where students create social media accounts (or work with ones they already have) and learn how to make good content, to build a community, to gain insights into social media algorithms, and to develop strategies for growing their accounts. We do in-class critiques and offer feedback along with doing readings and trying out new tech.
Lots of you were interested in learning more about how to make content go viral! I teach a class on this @iSchoolUMD but I know not everyone has time/money for a college course, so I put up a bunch of my lecture videos and readings in this medium post! https://t.co/l4zaNSStii
