Subject: The Power Of Social Media

Social media has become one of those things that if you're not on social media it's a bit strange and if it's not strange its cool to some people. (Justin Bieber)

"The power of social media" is a term I may have heard over 100 times over the past year, maybe even more than that and there is clearly a reason for it.

I think its an over used term personally but not because of the meaning. Social media has the power to get you a job, make you money, make a brand have no one knowing them to having the whole world no who they are and it has the power to make anyone a Victoria Secret Model these days.

Those are only a few things that social media can do and they seem all pretty positive right? I will talk about the negatives of social media in another post but for now lets talk the positives.

As some of you know, I got my current job as a Fashion Editor from social media, from my Instagram and this website. My boss found this website and liked who I was on social media, my writing style and what I talked about.

I was giving a talk to some students early and trying to reiterate that social media can do more for you than social gratification. It can open pathways, opportunities and adventures you never thought possible.

I mean I did a guest editor with FashionUnited and was on the BBC... if thats not proof of the power of social media, I don't know what is.

What I'm trying to say is use it, use it well, use it for good and karma will thank you later.

Stat a website, write about something new, be creative, share your passions.

Unless you hate social media. Then join Justin Bieber.

Kind regards,
