COM0015 Blog # 5 – Assignment 5 Event Participation

There are a lot of event participants that you could visit and attend in different locations. These events are found initially on social media platforms such as Facebook Event Page, Webinars websites, Zoom events, or festivals, and parties.  

The event that I have chosen is called “TDOTCULB Boat Bash – Link to the event:, the reason that I have chosen this event is that I love visiting different places that have festivals and parties it brings me enjoyments. This event hosted by the original company named “Tdotclub boat bash,” only 19 and above, were allowed to enter this event. It located at 11 Polson street in Toronto ON. 

The people that I interacted with were adults and Mcmaster University students. While interacting with these kinds of people, one adult made me learn a lesson that do what you love to do and allows other people to get interested and inspired as to what you do. I contributed to this by listening to what they were trying to say. The idea that I have walked away from this event would be to enjoy life to the fullest, even though people try to stop you from it and create new friends who will not just leave you hanging but always be there for you. 

I want to share the quote from someone named “Stephanie,” she said, “You look so beautiful, and I like the way you represent yourself as a wonderful person.” 

Lastly, I would personally like to visit these places in the future because it allows me to make friends who are friendly and kind-hearted people.

COM0015 Blog # 4 – Out Of The Box

Social media are known for websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking. It’s challenging to discover new and different things while using social media. The most exciting thing that I have found is “Cosmetic Photosynthetic.”

The beauty brand represented in different ways. For example, Sephora or MAC are brands that are all over social media, but it’s most common.

Cosmetic Photosynthetic –

It’s known as “Sustainable cosmetics” which was initially found in microalgae. It is base on the cultivation of cyanobacteria. It has proven to be the most successful thing for such formulas used in biodegradable personal care products that are characterized by high tolerances. 

The creator of this trend is a Canadian-Iranian designer Roya Aghighi. Cyanobacteria can cope with both high UV radiation and ultimate dissolution. It appears to be more effective at retaining moisture than from conventional moisture preserving materials, such as; Urea or Glycerin. Also, they have higher photosynthetic and growth rates than more complex plants, but they can grow under cultivation systems that aren’t already completed with any agriculture.

COM0015 Blog#3 – Professional Networking Now and In The Future

Professional networking is simply related to networking that is focused on professional goals. The purpose of professional business networking is to build and maintain professional or business relationships over time. The professional networking that I will discuss is “LunchMeet”.


It is a type of mobile app that is a valuable tool to identify local professional interests. The main features in this app are, meeting up for coffee or lunch among a group or one on one people.

How much does it cost to develop a social media app like LINKEDIN ...

Top Strategies For Networking In LunchMeet – 

There are two main strategies that are used in Networking-

  1. Manage your availability – 

Once you login onto the app you can automatically set up multiple time slots for your availability. You can either make them a one-time opportunity or an ongoing.

2. Interacting with your lunch date –

LunchMeet is designed to interact with other people besides your friends. It allows you to invite any of your Linkedin contacts directly. Also, it allows you to send a LunchMeet availability slot on Twitter and Facebook.

I believe that in the future professional networking will represent differently. For example, creating unique different apps (CityHour). This app instantly connects you to any professional businesses within a 50-mile radius.

COM0015 Blog # 2 -Strong and Weak Organizations

There are several strong and weak organizations around the world. The two main organizations that I would like to discuss are, Google being a strong organization and Forever 21 being the weak organization.


Google is a multinational and publicly-traded organization that has been built around the company’s hugely popular search engine. Google has a lot of enterprises which include internet analytics, cloud computing, advertising technologies, and web apps. This company’s roots began in 1996 when the creators of Google Brin and Page decided to collaborate on a research project that could eventually become the google search engine. 

Google has at least 5 ways of becoming dominant in social media – 

  1. Google Social Search –

This new feature combines users in social connections with organic searches. This tool also could scan your social connections based on your social accounts.

2. Google Buzz – 

It leverages current email contacts and connects with your social profile. Also on Gmail, you can share updates, photos, and start your very own conservations.

3. Twitter and Facebook Feeds in Search Results – 

Within other social media appearing in search results there are other ways such as Twitter Tweets, FriendFeed Updates, and MySpace updates.

4. Google Social Acquisitions –

Video-Sharing – Youtube or Blogging – 

5. Google Waves – 

This tool enables real-time communication and could collaborate. For example, post videos. Also, in those live conservations, you can rewind the wave at any time to listen or read previous conversations.

 Forever 21 –

Forever 21, is known to be the American Fast Fashion in the retailer headquarters at Los Angeles, California. This store was originally found in Los Angeles on April 16, 1984, by two couples Do Won Chang and Jin Sook Chang from South Korea.

There are many ways Forever 21 didn’t contribute towards social media that well even though they have been using Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Social media users were the ones to react when the organization went bankrupt. They post the same clothing styles. For example, the Barbie clothing trend.

COM0012 Blog # 1 – Self Introduction

Hi everyone, 

My name is Jessica Khural but you can just call me Jess. I will introduce myself a little.

I was born in Canada. My favourite hobbies or things that I like to do are painting, drawing, dancing, and fashion modelling. Fashion modelling started in January 2020, during this time I was a bit nervous as to what I was going to pose as but once I got the hang of it I got the habit of making a lot of different unique poses.

I am an undergraduate student doing social media as of my program. The reason that I have chosen this program is that it is interesting to know how social media could work in different unique ways. For example, business-related or it could relate to strategizing social media features displays. 

This fall I will be at Ryerson University for my master’s degree in digital art production where it will allow me to learn technology-based arts that are combined with social media. 

I hope you like this blog, there will be more to come during this semester!

COM0015 Blog # 1 – Tools and Sources Assignment 1

Social media monitoring is also known as “Social Media Listening”, it is the process of identifying and assessing what is going to be said about any company, individual, product, or either brand on the internet. In this blog, I will discuss two tools that are Pexels and Facebook Live which then I will introduce to you a new update between the two tools.


The meaning of pexels it provides high quality and completely free stack of photos that are only licensed. All of the photos are nicely tagged, searchable and also easy to discover through their discovery pages. Using pexels, I can easily upload any photo of mine and I could also search or scroll down other people’s photos.

Facebook Live

The meaning of “Facebook Live” it’s a feature that a social network uses the camera on either computer or mobile devices to broadcast real-time video to Facebook. Using Facebook Live, I can easily create videos on what I am doing and add friends in the same video that is being created. Facebook live is also able to engage their audiences during the important events that are occurring.

New Sources

There is a new update between pexels and Facebook live. The company originally is named “Facebook Live Pexels”. This can collect data that helps you track conversions from Facebook ads, build targeted audiences for future ads, and remarket to people who have or ready taken some kind of action on your website. 

Using this it allows me to create different videos that could be business-related for instance “The Keg” they create live pexels videos to capture people’s attention.

COM0014 : Blog#7 – Personal Reflection

In this course, I have learned a lot about the importance of storytelling to create great digital content. The reasons behind each and every storytelling is because there are many things to consider when defining your own style approach to creating great content. For example, creating a live video of your vacation stories, or writing them on your blog or twitter accounts about your experiences.

The kinds of stories you should consider telling would be the kinds of sharing your message with others or put together their own content to share. However, you could ask them to share their own experiences by telling their own story.

COM0014 : Blog # 6 – Do people know your story?

Have you ever ask yourself the same question over and over again until you figure it out. “What have I achieved this year or What have I experienced as a disappointment to myself?”.

There are several things that I have achieved over the years but one specific most important one would be achieving a certificate for “Student Accessibility Services Office” known for volunteering as a note-Taker.

Related image

The reasons as to why I have achieved this certificate is because I am responsible for giving my notes to disability students who have trouble reading and understanding the professor’s lecture slides.

For example, each lecture notes you have written in your notebook or binders will always be there so you could either refresh your memory or give it to someone who has a better understanding from you only.

Each and every student who has a disability could learn from you instead and become as successful as you are.

COM0014 Blog # 5 – Personal Branding


There are four main characteristics that would describe me as to who I am personally. 1) Hard worker, 2) Adventurous, 3) creative, 4) helpful.

These four characteristics have a big impact on my successful life.

Recent Accomplishments

Learning to strive for new things in life. Recently I have learned new ways of cleaning my closet and learning how to match clothing by clothing. The ways of me cleaning my closet is by removing the top shelf which had contained textbooks and other main loosely papers. So I figured why not keep them all downstairs to make room for the two boxes filled with pencils and other school materials. The way that I have learned to match clothing by clothing is by organizing them by color like all blue shirts goes together or all whites go together at once.

The Compliments that I receive are:

“I love your new look!”
“You Look so pretty! Where did you get your hair done?”
“You look really smart person to be around with”
“You have a nice clean room!”


The one trait that I am proud of having is me being nice to others but only if they deserve it. This had made me have nice and kind friends to be around with all the time.


The first question you will probably thinking “What is a hashtag” anyways. Well, the answer is a word or phrases by a hash sign (#) used especially on social media websites and applications. For example, Twitter is to identify messages on a specific topic.

Each and every Twitter users put hashtags in their own personal tweets just to categorize them in such a way that makes it easy for other users to find and follow tweets about a specific topic or theme.

Image result for twitter hashtags

There are several ways to use hashtags:

  1. Use specific phrases hashtags to tone in on the particular topic

An example would be like – #BorderColliePuppyTraining it will eventually turn up better than #Dogs because it would represent better-targeted users.

2. Avoiding using too many hashtags in a single tweet –

End up cramming multiple hashtags into your tweets which will leave you minimum room to put your real messages within the space provided.

3. Use twitter trending topics to find hot and current hashtags –

To find different types of trending topics on Twitter use the “Search Tap”. A search tap is mainly trending topics that are a mix of hashtags and regular phases according to your geographical locations. However, using these specific taps will create a great and interesting tweet or conservation among other users you follow.
