Taking this course has already been eye-opening as to what I have been missing out with learning how to publish blog posts and navigate social media. I have always been one to steer away from using social media as I believe it has become toxic in society. However, I have always liked to keep an open mind, and I hope that DS_106 can help change my views with some of these social tools. I understand that I can not change the direction that social media has been going, but I believe that I can contribute towards changes that will help bring happiness to the world with a positive attitude! In summation, I would like to learn more of the tools available on “the Internets” from others in what seems so far to be a very well put together and thought out class!
