Thank you all for visiting our blog, and sharing your comments and opinions. This will be our final blog entry. :( We have all enjoyed sharing our opinions on different topics, and hearing your opinions in return. Each comment to one of our blog posts has given our team feedback on what people really think about Florida A&M University, the media, and the new Multipurpose Teaching Center Gym. Your comments helped us with our individual events, and shaped how we planned them. We understood what you liked and disliked, and we took all of it into consideration when we completed each of our assignments.
Each of our events focused on fictitious social events happening on FAMU's campus. I was directed to plan an event showcasing FAMU's student media. With the comments made to my posts I realized the importance of having people of color in the media. People notice when a commercial, TV station or any other media outlet is missing someone of color. Hearing your opinion helped me to choose who I wanted to speak, make presentations, and guide workshops for my event. Ebony said her blog post comments helped her to see peoples views on the new gym vs. the recreation center. She realized how many people are into blogs now and how important it is to post your blog early to draw people to it. She also learned how essential blogging is to PR. Ajonelle said her blog post comments helped her to see people's perception of FAMU, and the importance of HBCU's. It helped her with her event because she realized bringing people together from an HBCU can help bring the moral and school pride up between alumni, stakeholders, and current students.
This entire blogging experience was a great idea. As PR professionals this is something we must do everyday and maintain to help our businesses prosper. Blogging is essential to PR. It lets us know what issues or concerns people may have with the companys we work for. Technology and media is forever changing and as PR profeesionals we must keep up with them. Thank you for your time and your comments.
Our finalquestion for you is What do you think about the amount and level of PR for FAMU? Do you think the school is being fairly represented in the media, and what do you think the Media Relations department can do to better the image of the school?
