MiriamPalster: Class Project


We should create and moderate a social web application using ning site.  First the class decides what will be the name of our site and we agreed that our site will be called MiriamPalster or MCPals.


We vote Mahalia as the moderator and who will create the site.  Sir Yuvienco gave us a deadline (January) that we should have 50 members on our site.  The good thing is we were able to meet the deadline. We asked our Miriam friends and classmate to join. For February, we should have to get 5,000 hits on the site.  This time, the class had planned that we should have more promotion to get the target hit.  We distributed the works how to popularize the site. Rosel was the one who started the forum, Jaymie who made the logo for the posters and flyers, Mahalia and Jaymie went to UP for the printing.  Kris, Carol, Cess and I posted the upcoming school event. I also posted the site on Miriam community who loves anime.  Everyone distributed the flyers and put some posters on the bulletin board.  We also promoted our site during Grand Home Coming.
