Name: Bethany Kenyon
Brief Bio: I am from Canberra and am currently doing Fine Arts/Arts majoring in Sociology and Anthropology and double major in Photography. Recently took 18 months off to work and travel Canada and the US. I enjoy smoking the odd durry and leading people on on Tinder.
I choose cyber cycler. This is because I know what I am doing on the internet, but am by no means a leader of the cyber population
How often do you use the internet? Way to much. I think on average I would be looking at my phone once every hour. This is an average because sometimes it might be multiple times an hour (if I am oragnising something with friends or if I am traveling on public transport) or I could be without my phone for a long period of time (eg. Sleeping, working, phone out of battery)
What social media accounts do you use, and what content do you post? I use Facebook, snapchat, Instagram and tinder. I mainly post content when I believe it has comedic value.
Is it regular? Yes. I think I would post content on Instagram every two weeks and would send a snapchat once or twice a day. However I don’t tend to post on Facebook very often, unless commenting on pictures or videos.
Do you take notice of personalised ads on Facebook? The only ads I would pay attention to are ones with clothes similar to what I have purchased online before. However, I have never purchased anything from such advertisements.
How do you feel about being automatically categorised in detail by Facebook? I was not aware of this and do not know much about the advantages. On initial though however, I personally think it may be over the top and perhaps a little invasive.
Do take any precautions when using the internet? Not as many as I should. All of my social media accounts are private and I only allow people I have met in person to follow me.
Is using the internet essential for your career? I think that there are very few careers that wouldn’t rely on the internet these days so I will assume that it will be important. I am unsure about what my career path is. Currently I am thinking about secondary school teaching which will require the internet especially in using it for correspondence vie email, teaching resources etc.
