I do not really need to learn anything about google presentations. I have done plenty in almost all of my classes. Some positives about them is that they're extremely simple. You have a slide, you can write on it, add pictures, etc. It is a fast and easy way to make a presentation with a lot of information to get across. Some negatives would be that it's not a video that you can share easily. For others to see it, you have to share the whole thing and it's not in the presentation format but the edit format. It would be really nice if you could create the presentation and share it with others just to view. 

I have used prezi a few times but I don't know much about it. I would like to see how much you can actually do on prezi that you might not be able to do on google presentations. Some positives about prezi is that you can import google images or videos off of youtube, much like the google presentations, but you get to choose from a big library full of 3-D designs. The transitions it has are very cool and will help you keep peoples attention. Some negatives would be that they are only as long as the template allows. So check the template you choose before filling in all your information, this way you'll know if there is enough room or not.

Why Twitter is the Best Social Media

I think twitter is the best social media because it has so much to offer. There are so many people out there that you can follow, it's incredible. Think about all of the time and effort involved in making this website and allowing so many people to be apart of it. Celebrities have it, adults, kids, grandparents etc. It is a website for all to use unlike Facebook which is a little more complicated. You have the options on twitter to be private, and accept follow requests, or to let anyone who chooses to, follow you. There are people with millions and millions of tweets. That's the cool thing about twitter, you can post whatever you want and people won't even know what you're talking about. It's a place for random ideas and opinions to be expressed. 

Twitter is not only tweeting, but posting pictures, links, videos, for all of your followers to see. You can also design your profile however you want. Choose a avatar picture, cover photo, background, and more. Personally, I enjoy twitter much more than Facebook and other social media websites. It helps you get to know people better. For example, say you have a really quiet girl in one of your classes and she sort of keeps to herself. You then check out her twitter and see that she really does have an opinion on things and is quite talkative. Although things can be misread or miscomprehended, as can anything online, I do believe that twitter is the best social media website.

I chose a panda because they're my favorite animal and I thought I could experiment with the photoshop pretty well on this picture.  There isn't too much going on in it and it's pretty simple. 
I autocorrected the picture and then changed the saturation on it. I also used the highlight, sharpen, and soft focus effects. The last thing I did was change the hue which put a little color into it.
