Social Media Post

Social Media Post and Reflection Activity

Consider these questions as you begin this week’s assignment:

  • Can you find an example of an effective social media post from Facebook® or Twitter®, or from a blog you have read?
  • What makes a social media or blog post effective?
  • What might a social media post crafted to persuade an audience look like?
  • Who is the imagined audience for the social media or blog post you selected?

Complete Parts 1 and 2 below.

Part 1: Social Media or Blog Post

Select whether you’ll complete this assignment by writing either a social media post or a blog post.

Write an approximately 280-word social media post or an approximately 400-word blog post in which you:

  • Persuade an audience of your choice to do, think, or feel
  • Consider selling a product, advertising an event, or sharing a thoughtful article with coworkers. You may use or link to credible images, videos, or articles in your social media or blog post to help support your message.
  • Include the who, what, when, why, and how for the topic you identified.


Provide your social media or blog post below by:

  • Uploading a screenshot or pasting an image into the image box, if applicable (Delete the image box if it is not needed in your response.)
  • Entering the post text into the text box


Note: Depending on how you’re viewing a social media or blog post online, the image may appear next to the text in some formats, while it may be stacked above or below the text in other formats.
