Spain – Real case scenario 1: Eduardo Torregrosa

– Hello. Good Morning. Please Introduce yourself and talk a bit about your work

– Hello. Good Morning. My Name is Edu Torregrosa and I’m Computer programming and system administration teacher at “Dr. LLuis Simarro Lacabra” Technical High School in Xátiva (Valencia, Spain)

– This is my second year working for this School. And besides being a teacher, I create content that is shared in social networks. I have a youtube channel started two years back where I share videos. I began with videos of a programm called GIMP (image manipulation program). Over the time, the channel was likened by watchers which made me upload more content. I’m satisfied on my channel which is growing .

– Which social networks are you present in?
– Now, I’m also present in Facebook. The problem is that I’m not uploading content there. I have plans to upload more content to facebook to reach more people. Essentially I’m focused on youtube which receives maybe one or two videos a week, and try to reply any questions there. I also have a newly created Instagram account which I only put a foto, but will expand it to promote the youtube channel

– Describe how you monitor your profile and reputation in social network
– Well, actually , I don’t really think I monitor my social profile, However I constantly visit my channel to read any questions, problems or doubts. For example, I recall when I uplodaded my first videos I had very few comments, and I was hoping for comments from anyone to try to help and get feedback, but the problem is that when the social network grow too much it becomes very hard to attend so many questions. I remember that I liked a lot to reply everyone, but at this moment I feel it’s impossible to reply to all viewers. One has to choose how to spend the time, either answering questions or creating new content. So, in the end, I like to read comments and suggerences on the one hand. And on the other, It becomes sad that I can’t satisfy them all. Basically I try to read all the comments, work out the best ones as a kind of monitoring

– Could you determine any weak point in your social network and digital profile?
– As a weak point I should be present in more social network, like twitter, instagram and publish more in Facebook as a reinforcement to my youtube channel. But this would require much more time that I think I should use mainly creating content and videos for my channel which is about helping and teaching people to use programs.

– So which social networks would you expand to?
– First, I’d like to expand my facebook page, which only has a profile picture, creating articles or tutorials often, I think Facebook has a wider reach. Also in Instagram to offer a graphic view of my courses or tutorial. Finally, twitter would be interesting.

– Of the main social networks, is there any that you aren’t present and you have reasons not to be?

– Actually this is a suprising question. But now that you ask, I’m thinking of Tik Tok, which is a new social network maybe not suited to me because I find it too childish and does not match the content I like to create, or maybe thinking twice, mmh! I could use it to make short videos with the same helpfull aim of the rest of my videos. I really never thought about avoiding any social network and I think that any major social network has its goodness.

– Do you recommend to monitor the network profile of yourself to all the people? Or maybe you think it’s not needed to know what the opinion of the network is about you?

– Absolutely not. Nowadays, The digital profile is something really important that everybody should take care and take into account at all times. The digital profile is what informs everybody about you in internet, It is what people who doesn’t know you knows about your profile and this is persists in time. So it is possible that anything you comment or do back in time is accessible forever. This also affects content that you regret having shared. Besides It is important to check for your profile frequently. Also, try to reply or engage any discussion the best way possible when you face with undesirable comments from others. Respect always the others but also respect your own opinions and be truthful. Sometimes some people make mean and harmful comments and the reply has to be calm and polite.

– Very well Edu, Thanks a lot for your opinion and I wish your profile expands greatly in internet.
– Thanks to you.
