So far, there have been 2 papers, 1 3-5 page, 1 7-10, and another 7-10 page paper is due Thursday. I've also given 2 of 3 12-23 minute presentations and have taken 2 of 3 quizzes. I still intend to share the papers and presentations, but I haven't figured out how and when. NOTE: If you intend to plagiarize any of them, the school submits them to an online system. That system is used by several schools to validate students' papers against. Also, while I know I'm a procrastinator, I'd still like to think that my effort is worth a simple reference on your Works Cited page, so, if you're going to use my work, please use it the right way.
Alright, I'll get off my soapbox. So the papers, including the one due this week, have these topics:
Paper #1: Benefits and Constraints of Internet Marketing
Paper #2: History of Social Networking
Paper #3: Creating and Maintaining a Corporate Intranet Built on Microsoft SharePoint
The "History of Social Networking" paper was really interesting. Interesting tidbits from my research include:
- Facebook was based off of a drunken Mark Zuckerberg prank (sourced in the paper...not my assumption/claim...Facebook/Zuckerberg, I'm not looking for a libel suit if this, in fact, inaccurate. I'll sell out my source in a heartbeat.)
- Do you remember a site called SixDegrees.com? I don't, but it was apparently the first social network that resembled the current powerhouses of the genre.
