Hello How’s Your ePresence listeners! Welcome to our news
update, where we discuss the biggest stories in social media- all
in ten minutes. On this episode, we take a more somber note to
lament the death of one of basketball’s finest, Kobe
After the legend’s death late Sunday afternoon, every social
media outlet was bursting with commentary on the unexpected
tragedy. Unfortunately, amidst the millions who posted tokens of
love and remembrance, there were several rude internet trolls. We
take time on this podcast to discuss social media etiquette and
ethics, especially in the wake of big news. Additionally, we take a
minute to discuss the rise of Tik-Tok, and how social media is
turning to a more talent-focused than status-focused
Quote of the podcast: “One of the greatest things
about social media is that everyone has a voice and can weigh in
with the global community.”

Eric, what’s in the news?
- With the very sad news of the passing
of Kobe Bryant and 8 other people in a helicopter crash
on Sunday, 1/26. His daughter, Gianna, Orange
Coast College (OCC) baseball coach, John Altobelli, his
wife, Keri, and daughter, Alyssa, were aboard the
- While this was going on…organizations
were posting other content that was scheduled. DO NOT DO
THAT. CANCEL YOUR SCHEDULED POSTS. Also, if you have an
axe to grind that is political or maybe you do not like
someone, do not air about your grievances on
the day they die on social media. It is always going to be on
social media, and it WILL hurt you in some way.
Either it will ruin a friendship, keep you from getting a future
job, or it may get you fired from your current job. It
is bad form. Remember, social media is about people and the
relationships we have with other people. Sometimes that
relationship can turn nasty in chat rooms…but hold your tongue on a
day that something horrible has happened.
- More downloads in 2019 than
Instagram Snapchat founder and CEO, Evan Spiegel predicts
that Tik Tok will overtake Instagram as the 2nd most popular.
Why? It is Talent Focused vs Status Focused
