1.Log in to Wikipedia and to WordPress.com
2.Open Paint (Windows image editor in accessories)
3.Take a screen capture of the article that shows what you want to edit (alt+print screen) and the reference list. Paste into Paint. Save as jpg (where you can find it later!)
4.In a different window or tab, access your edit notes (your blog post)
5.Select “edit section” (if that’s an option)
6.Make the changes (copy and paste your text)
7.Use the citation tool to make your reference
8.Preview; note changes and save
9. Take a screen capture of your edit and new reference list
10. Edit your blog post; add the images to the bottom of the post
For Discussion (from your questions)
- Benjamin: it is suggested that the lines between mass and interpersonal communication, in the era of social networking sites, are being blended rather than blurred. If this is the case, how do you think sites like YouTube or Facebook, or even the internet itself, would make our lives look if this were not true, that is, if the lines were becoming more and more blurred?
- Cheryl: How do we separate frends, family and colleagues on Facebook without offending them? And, how do we “un-friend” someone or decline an offer to “friend” without causing a rift?
- Chris C: In what ways are the standards of communication altered by Facebook? (think events calendar, status updates VS calling someone on the telephone)
- John: How does trust develop when anyone could have a fake profile?
- Tasha: Why do you think that Facebook keeps changing its Privacy Settings?
- Tim : What steps do you take to make your Facebook or social media website less “Public”
