Olivia Taylor Dudley

Olivia Taylor Dudley is a 31 year old California born actress currently co-starring as Alice Quinn, in the Syfy Channel’s “The Magicians”. Until The Magicians, Dudley was most known for roles in Paranormal Activity, Transcendence, and The Vatican Tapes. She moved to the Los Angeles area at 17 years old and has pursued an acting career since then. She has a decent social media presence and stays engaged with her followers. She appears to have warm feelings for her fans and a desire to stay connected to them through live question answering events and sharing photos of her life.

Ms. Olivia Dudley can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and her most used account… Instagram.

Instagram is Olivia’s most followed account, by far, with close to 63 thousand followers. She posts regularly with artistically crafted photos, interesting captions, photos of her cast mate, and cute selfies. I regularly see her posting on the Instagram Story, sharing video clips of her dog, adventures, and friends.

Her next most popular social media platform is Twitter with 26 thousand followers!

She uses this platform more lightly than Instagram. Mostly retweeting posts by others, sharing “witchcraft and magic” related gifs, reposting media from Instagram, and updates on the Magician’s show schedule.


 

Finally, Facebook. Olivia Dudley uses this platform the least and has less than 3 thousand followers on this particular platform.

Much like her other accounts, Olivia reposts photos from Instagram, shares updates of The Magician’s related online events, and show dates. At times she is apart of Q & A events with her fellow cast members in an effort to reach out to fans of the SyFy show.


 

Overall, I believe her social media presence is moderate. She excels at using Instagram to interact with followers and they enjoy staying in tune to her life. She could improve her Twitter and Facebook accounts by incorporating more original content for each platform, rather than only reposting what she posts on Instagram. From my perspective I see Olivia as classic, quirky, warm, and interesting. I think she portrays that image well through Instagram.

Domino’s and Social Media: In 30 Comments or Less

(I could have sworn I uploaded Case Study 3 onto here before, but it was apparently missing, so better late than never.)

Domino’s Pizza. Everybody loves a good ol’ fashioned pizza when they’re feeling down. But not from Domino’s, their pizza tastes like it was cooked in a burning trash can, and not an empty one either. But what they lack for in quality of product, they make up for in social media presence. On all their accounts, they have a relatively large following.

Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Dominos/   17,172,955 Likes

The Facebook page itself is likely what you may expect from the page of any major restaurant. The profile picture is a picture of the Domino’s logo, and the cover image is a picture of a phone ordering pizza. The about tab contains information regarding the chain, what services they offer, and a legal disclaimer.

A majority of posts are pictures of deceptively good-looking pizzas along with other items available at the chain, and sometimes other subjects, such as their app. All the content is uploaded by the company, but given the disclaimer, it’s possible they are re-uploads of content submitted by users. It does not seem to like other pages, and the only community interaction is for customer support for those who are understandably dissatisfied with their slop. Most comments on recent posts are mixed with some positive and some irate, with around 100-300 on each.  They could focus more on interactive with their community proactively.

The Twitter profile is structure more or less exactly the same to the Facebook page, all things considered. The profile picture and banner is the same as Facebook, most of the photos are reposts from the Facebook page. That’s not to say it’s identical to the Facebook page, however. The bio is short and confirms this is indeed the official Domino’s profile. There is the occasional retweet and responses from other users on their page.  There are also jokes related to pizza, with relevant hashtags. Most comments on recent posts are positive, with around 5-20 on each.

These are still significantly more pictures of pizza than anything else, though. Most posts have different text accompanying them, mostly including hashtags into almost every post, as well as the occasional emoticon. Overall, not the best it could be, needs more interaction with random commenters, but still a big step forward compared to the Facebook profile.

Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dominos/  1M followers 65 Following 1280 posts

Prepare to not be surprised: The Domino’s Instagram account features primarily the same structure/content as the other accounts we have seen. Here, all of their pictures of pizza are put on full display, given the nature of the website. The bio is same as the Twitter, along with a link to Domino’s Wedding Registry. There are many photographs of pizza, and the occasional video ad thrown in for good measure. Again, 90% of the content here is recycled from their other social media channels. There is seemingly little to no interaction with customers/fans on display here. Most comments on recent posts are positive, with around 50-100 on each. Everything you see here is displayed with more content and interaction on both of the other platforms.

Overall, the biggest problem Domino’s is facing is their horrible soggy bread they call pizza, but the biggest issue facing their social media accounts is their sameness. All 3 of the accounts I’ve looked at have had almost the entirety of their posted content be the same across all platforms. They need to add some variety to give people reason to follow more than one account. Also, more audience interaction would help out as well. Perhaps responding to comments and such, adding some personality to your brand has proven helpful for its competitors. Their best platform at the moment seems to be their Twitter, as it includes the most audience interaction, but even that could use a bit of love. Until they get their act together, just stick to Pizza Hut. Or literally anywhere else.

Social Media Presence of YMS

Introduction

The popular YouTube channel YourMovieSucksDotOrg is a channel started by Adam Johnston in 2010 for his film reviews. Adam reviews many kinds of movies and some TV shows. He is mainly known for his comedic and in depth analysis of films he finds to be absolutely terrible. On top of those reviews, he posts quick reviews of recent films he may have seen and list videos of his top movies from different years. He also has a gaming channel where he posts videos of his Twitch streams. He has shown his subscribers what technical problems a film may have or where it excels above most. This YouTube channel is a great starting point to finding great directors and great films.

Analysis

YMS has YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and he has his own Official Website.

YMS YouTube2

His main platform for content is his YouTube. He has over 550,000 subscribers and many of his videos gain hundreds of thousands of views each month. Adam tries to post a couple of videos each month as they take awhile to record and edit. Some of his videos are close to half an hour long and are sometimes split into multiple parts. He also keeps every one of his subscribers up to date on projects that he is working on and when he expects to have them done. He also occasionally responds to comments on his videos. His audience interaction is very high on his YouTube channel. One of his longest running series of videos is his multi-part analysis of Charlie Kaufman’s Synecdoche New York.

YMS Twitter

On his Twitter account he posts links to new uploads, smaller reviews that he doesn’t have time to make into videos, and commentary on current social events. He has 82,500 followers on his Twitter account. He is able to post more frequently on this account as it allows for free flow of thought. He just says whats on his mind or posts updates on his current activities. Adam does respond to some of the replies on his tweets and sometimes participates in discussions on his opinions of certain social topics.

YMS Facebook

On the YMS Facebook page is links to videos, updates, and links to Twitch streams as they are happening every Sunday night. He also has a link to the official Patreon where fans can donate certain amounts to fund his YouTube channel as it does cost a lot for equipment. Fans who donate get different perks depending upon the amount that they donated. This is his way of giving back to those who allow him to keep doing what he loves.

YMS Website.png

On his Official Website is where he posts his YouTube videos onto VidMe in case YouTube takes his content down for copyright. He follows the correct copyright laws and has never broken those laws. YouTube has an automated take down system that has caused problems for many content creators in the past couple of years. Adam uses his website as a back up for his content in the case of a take down by YouTube until he can get the original put back up.

The entirety of the YMS social media presence is extremely active and engaging. Adam shows a clear love for what he does and he shows his fans that he cares about them. On these multiple accounts, Adam keeps everything updated and explains any situation going on in his personal life that may affect the channel. He also shows appreciation for his friend and collaborator Mark English. Mark edits some of the main channel videos and most of the gaming channel videos. I do not see anything that YMS may need to improve on in terms of his social media presence.

A quick Google search shows that YMS has a subreddit on Reddit and an IMDB profile where he updates his ratings of movies he has seen recently. On Google Images are pictures of his face and some screenshots of his videos. There is not much else on this particular YouTuber when searching on Google. He has not left much of a digital footprint.

Commendations and Recommendations

I believe that YMS has a very well done social media presence on all the right platforms. YouTube and Twitter are two of the most popular social media platforms on the Internet. If there is anything I wish he would improve on, its the way he defends his beliefs on Twitter. He can appear a bit angry at some accounts that reply to his statements as he is very opinionated. I would do nothing else to improve the YMS social media presence as I believe it is better than ever.

My First Football

I received my first football on my 10th birthday from my dad. I remember watching the NFL games every Sunday, eating nachos, and wearing my kids-sized Pats jersey. It was always my favorite day of the week, and not just because I got to watch football, but because it was the only day I really ever got to spend with my dad.

When I was younger, and before my father got a stable career as a computer programmer, he used to work long hours. I would be asleep by the time he got home, and the times he was home early, he would be sleeping from exhaustion. Sundays, though, was the one day he didn’t work, and it became a tradition, a source of bonding for us, even to this day.

From a young age, I dreamt of being a professional football player. That first ball was a sign of support from my father and motivated me to want to work hard to make him proud. On the sticker attached to the wrapping paper were words in his handwriting that said, “To my future star football player.” I remember beaming, and tearing open the wrapping paper in a fit of excitement. I remember running up and hugging him. I remember my first time catching the ball, hitting the ground with a thud as my brother tackled me.

I started playing football everyday with my friends at school, in my neighborhood, and with my family. Shortly after, I joined the Junior Football League, and played the position of wide receiver. My mom was not happy about it. She thought the sport was too dangerous and especially with me being the youngest, she was always afraid of me getting hurt. My dad would always say, “You need to stop babying him and let him pursue his dreams.”

I played football all throughout middle and high school, but stopped playing when I started college. Even though I never made it pro, football remains my favorite sport, and I still play with my friends and family sometimes. We still watch football every Sunday, eating nachos, me wearing my adult-sized Pats jersey besides my father. I still own the football I received when I was 10, And I still dream of being a part of professional football. Now, though, I aim to coach professionally, and am starting to pursue that goal by coaching the junior teams. “Blue-82! Blue-82! Hut-hut, hike!”

We Rate Dogs

WeRateDogs is a twitter account created on November 15, 2015 by a college named student Matt Nelson. Before he created WeRateDogs on his personal account he would write some jokes and one day at an Applebees with his friend he asked his friend to rate his food and Matt thought “what if I made an account that rates dogs?”. On his personal account he made a poll asking his followers what they thought and 87% of them said yes to the idea. And on that day WeRateDogs twitter account was born with this first post. Today the account has a little over 4,000 tweets and close to 2 million followers. In the past few years, the WeRateDogs has brought smiles to millions of people around the world, dog lovers and non dog lovers alike.

WeRateDogs started off on just Twitter but has soon since grown and created multiple social media accounts to connect with more people and in different ways. This company has expanded itself all over the internet. It has multiple accounts on sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat (@weratedogs), it’s own website and even it’s own game app! It’s truly amazing to see how far one account has gone in just about two years.

The Twitter and Facebook account are very similar in what is posted. Mostly, especially on the Twitter account, the pictures of dogs that are “rated” are posted. On occasion there are a few updates about the company, it is rare to see updates on the Twitter account. While on the Facebook account there are a lot of updates about the website since the Facebook page is mainly for the webstore.

The Instagram is used strictly for pictures of the “rated” dogs. On occasion on the Instagram page you can find a few pictures of new products on the webstore. The Snapchat is used by the creator of WeRateDogs to share pictures with funny captions of his own dog. Although he must share the Snapchat with a few selected people because some days someone might “take over” the Snapchat account and share their dog or puppies who are adoptable.

The website for WeRateDogs is the store for the company. They sell many different kinds of t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, stickers, and hats. A lot of the things that are sold on the site have designs that have different jokes that have been on the Twitter account.

This t-shirt in particular was a response from the Twitter account to another Twitter user who criticized them for their ratings being inaccurate and ridiculous. Which being inaccurate and ridiculous is what the whole account is for.

This company is doing a great job at what it’s original goal was, to entertain people and brighten peoples days and share funny and cute pictures of dogs. The one problem I have is the amount of advertisement they do for their products on their Snapchat and Instagram I think that should be left to their Facebook page. Other than that I absolutely adore this company. I have been following this account for a while and will follow them forever because of my love for funny/clever captions and my love of dogs.
