Something like twitter where you only have so many

Something like Twitter, where you only have so many letters and you don't have the amount of font options that you would in a typed up document or even e-mail. So you have to figure out, if you're doing professional posting for a company or wanting to do it yourself, how to format it to look nice. To be concise, and to get your information across knowing there is a character limit. Something like that really gets you going and learning on how to either break down your message in multiple posts, or learn how to short-hand things while still keeping it looking good enough to be thought of as something respectful and professional.

Manage Discussion Entry One that will get every body is the auto correct and spell check. just because there is a spell check and a grammar check and it says it is correct, it may not be correct for the content that is being used. I bring this up in lite of we all have to format the writing to what we are trying to say. Another software would be excel, Weather we are trying to do an accounting sheet or a simply presentation with pie graphs we need to format the information to accurately show what we are tying to present.

Sometimes I have to re-read certain things that just blow my mind and makes me feel so old. I always get the mom don't you understand from my son, nope I sure don't. Its gotten to the point that expressing your mind does not mean great grammar or good punctuations when it comes to social media.

We, indeed, have a plethora of software tools to help us format our messages, but the software tools do not govern professional formatting, nor tone. This is required of the sender/writer as they address their intended audience. If addressing professionally, the sender/writer will need to use standard language, void of slang, emojis, typing in all caps, etc. Minimal or sparing use of typing in all bold, italics and overuse of pictures also help to engage, but not lose the engagement process of relaying pertinent information to the target audience. Software tools enhance our messages, but we still must tailor them to fit our intended audience.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
