Eppes – Social Media and Business Outline

When I first planned on doing this module I thought it would be about how companies wanted to keep social media separate from business operations, but the more I work at it, the more I see that businesses all over the world are integrating social media into their business operations.  With that in mind, I have changed my lesson to be more along the lines of business and social media and how they are growing together.

Students will be able to:

  1. Understand the importance of a positive online reputation
  2. Understand how social media can affect job opportunities
  3. Understand how social media can promote businesses and potential employees
  4. Understand the importance of online privacy

Activity 1:

Defining your digital footprint

Activity 2:

Marketing yourself to get a job

Activity 3:


Individual work:

Students will read and reflect on 3 articles.


Students will work in groups to prepare and present a case study of a business/social media current event.
