My Personal Brand Statement

Image

I have created my “personal brand statement” for the very first time with the help of course material and online search on personal branding. I got to learn that personal brand statement is not just something that is designed for a resume to impress an employer, its a mirror where not just I can see myself but others can also see me and themselves in the same mirror and what they gain and from my reflection (my personality, my characteristics, knowledge and experiences of life). I visited many websites and blogs to read about personal brand statement, all of my research and content studied made me think “who am I”?, “what’s unique about me that makes me different than other around me”?, who is my target to socialize and work with, what can I do for others, all together “who is my audience”? Identity matters everywhere, in personal and professional life, in face to face interaction or online as we always talk to people, not to walls.

One of webs I liked the most in search: http://www.astridbaumgardner.com/articles/10-articles/16-personal-branding-for-musicians-and-artists-using-your-unique-gifts-to-connect-with-your-audience.html. This provided me with examples and blank statement to fill as my own, describing my own profession with unique qualities of myself, type of audience I want to target and desired experience I want my audience of gain from my knowledge and experience. 

Before creating my brand statement, I have also considered these 5 simple but important things from this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDNz3496abs

“I am a physical therapist who is passionate, experienced, accommodative and always willing to support, guide and educate (clients) to bring life back to learn and enjoy unique experiences that a normal and healthy life has to offer”.

 

 

Light-beam Graph, web surfing and connection to third parties

Imageii

It was interesting, shocking and a bit scary to see this graph at first because I was not aware of such a software that can show me how many sites I have visited and how many third-party sites were connected to the information I viewed and when I saw that just visiting 11 sites can connect me with other 182 sites, I was shocked but as I saw such information for first time, its was interesting to know this type of technology available to us. The number of third-party sites scared me a bit because I just visited 11 sites in 20 minutes but I was being followed by 182 other sites which I was unaware of, and any of those sites could contain some malware to hack my online information/identity and of course I was never going to be aware of it as I had no idea of that before looking into this graph. This was just a 20 minute surfing and I visit lots of sites everyday so, how much of my online identity gets on risk everyday and that scared me. This graph shows the connection between the web sites I visited and the third-parties I was connected to and I do not see any single web which is not connected to at least one other web, all of them are so complicatedly attached that its hard to hard which one is related to which other site, even, the Facebook we use on daily basis and use it a lot, has a bunch of third-party sites that we never see while we visit Facebook every time but they can see what we like, what we are looking for or what interests us. I think most of these third-party sites will be looking to target consumers as they get to see what people want on internet  just by connecting to these big sites and than offer the ads of that person’s interest on websites, they visit next. Consumerism drives to Big Data as information is shared on many platforms within seconds, I would say its beneficial as things can be done in seconds and life has become much more comfortable with this sharing of data but risk of identity theft cannot be ignored either. 

Use of Google Syntaxes for quick and accurate results

ImageUsing proper Google Syntax can save your time and provide you with much more efficient and accurate results than just typing out randomly on google or any other search engine can. To know these few useful tips can help to make your search experience(on google) a lot easier and stress-free.

1. How would you search for an exact word or phrase?

Instead to just typing the word or phrase in google search, enclose the word/phrase in quotation marks. For example: “Blue rose” or “Canadian Federal Elections 2011”.

2. How would you search for something on a specific site?

In order to search your content on a specific website, simply, precede your search with [site:], for example: “Blue rose”, site: www.blueroseflorist.com , and this will provide you with all the results specific to that website.

3. How would you correctly search for a definition?

If you are looking for direct definition of something, without going through different dictionary website etc, just write define before the word you are looking for. For example, define: Macbook or [define Macbook].

4. How would you search for a specific product available within a specific price range?

To search for a specific product available within a specific price range, use a few dots to create space between the two prices of your price range, after the product name. For example, [fish aquarium $200..$600].

5. How would you search for a specific filetype?

If you are looking for a document on google with specific filetype, use [filetype:] describing what type of file you want such as [filetype:ppt] or [filetype:pdf]. Search query can be typed before or after the filetype but make sure, there is no space between filetype and the type of file mentioned. For example, [Canadian wildlife Federation filetype:pdf] or [filetype:ppt Canadian wildlife Federation].

6. How would you include or ignore words in your search?

To include the word in your search, put quotation marks around the word you want to include in your search, but if you want to ignore any word in your search,simply use [-] sign before the word you wish to exclude, for example: [summer fruits-tomatoes]. 

7. How would you find related pages?

In order to find the related pages, just type in [related:] followed by URL of the website without any space. For example: [related:www.facebook.com]

8. How would you find a topic, searching all available synonyms of a word?

To find a topic, searching all available synonyms of a word, use [~] sign before the topic/word you are looking for, for example, [~tulips] or ~Marathon.

9. How would you find the time in another country?

This can be done by typing [time] before the name of the country with space between the two words such as [time China].

10. How would you find out how many Egyptian pounds you get for $20 Canadian dollars?

Just type in what currency you have and in which currency you would like to convert that money, for example, [20 Canadian to Egyptian pound] or “20 Canadian dollars in Egyptian Pounds”.
