Step 1: The presentation
Before you choose how you will present, think about what you want your audience to
understand or learn. What will be your main message?
Once you've decided on your message, you'll need to figure out how to ask your audience for
feedback. You can ask them if they understood your message. You can ask them for suggestions. If
you're feeling up for it, you can even ask them for constructive criticism, which means they will point
out specific areas you can improve in. (And any improvement is a good thing, right?)
Next, you'll need to consider how to reach your audience. Where do they hang out on social
media? Is your message best conveyed through text, pictures, video, or some other creative way?
Do you think it would be best to post your message to more than one social media outlet? It's your
project, so you get to choose.
Finally, with choice comes responsibility. You should anticipate how you will document your
presentation and the feedback you receive. Will you use a screen shot or a link to your presentation?
Or will you use another creative way to document it?
This is my social media project presentation:
People who want pets should be getting rescues instead of going to breeders. For one, they will be
saving a life. Each year, it's estimated that more than one million adoptable dogs and cats are
euthanized in the United States, simply because too many pets come into shelters and too few
people consider adoption when looking for a pet. The number of euthanized animals could be
reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them. When you adopt, you
save a loving animal by making them part of your family and open up shelter space for another
animal who might desperately need it. Most shelter animals are only in shelters because of problems
their humans had like moving or divorce. It also costs less to get a shelter animal than go to a
breeder. Finally, breeders are often “puppy mills” and by rescuing, you will be fighting puppy mills.
Puppy mills are factory-style breeding facilities that put profit above the welfare of dogs. Animals
from puppy mills are housed in horribly awful conditions without decent medical care, and are often
very sick and have severe behavior issues as a result. The moms of these puppies are kept in cages
to be bred over and over for years, without human companionship and with little hope of ever joining
a family. And after they're no longer profitable, breeding dogs are simply discardedeither killed,
abandoned or sold at auction.

These puppy mills continue to stay in business through deceptive tactics their customers are
unsuspecting consumers who shop in pet stores, over the Internet or through classified ads. Puppy
mills will continue to operate until people stop supporting them. By adopting a pet, you can be
certain you aren't giving them a dime.
Step 2: The feedback
Hearing your audience's thoughts and getting feedback is fun. Aren't you curious what others think?
For this assignment, you will need to collect and document a minimum of six pieces of
feedback from others relating to your social media project presentation.
In the space below, provide documentation of feedback. Examples of documentation include, but are
not limited to, the following:
Link or screenshot to one or more social media posts with comments
A screenshot or a copied and pasted version of a discussion thread from a blog, discussion
area, instant message, email, etc.
Any sort of documentation that includes both your presentation and feedback. (Brain waves
don't count. Sorry.)
