The Summer of Social Media
A Chronicle of Comm 4701, "Integrating Social Media," University of Denver, Summer Quarter 2010

Week 4 Guest Lecturer: Talia Davis

Our guest lecturer this week, Talia Davis, has a rich background in teaching and communication–skills that were most evident in her excellent presentation and discussion on social media. She is the daughter, niece, granddaughter and great-grandaughter of rabbis (Hebrew for “teacher”) and a dance/theater major who has taught theater arts to numerous children. She is currently a master’s candidate here at DU.

Talia’s lecture drew from her use of social media as community manager and PR director for Patheos, a Web portal on religion and spirituality. She outlined her strategy of using Facebook and Twitter to drive traffic to the site and build an online community united in their interests relating to Patheos’ subject matter. She also explained her use of WordPress, BuddyPress and Facebook Connect in creating content and commentary.

It’s obvious that Talia is a teacher in the tradition of her learned family. She is also a remarkable storyteller as shown by her presence on Patheos and her engaging online lecture. Our thanks to fellow student Talia Davis for sharing her successful and evolving social media practices.
