A New Way to Share Your Dreams with One Little Button
Getting through the High School gauntlet is no easy task. Trying to juggle your social life with your studies and getting your first taste of adulthood with a driver’s license and a car can be overwhelming. On top of that, many consider these years the most important of your life, because the classes you choose, SAT and test grades directly affect which colleges you can go to. Your High School career can easily become the cornerstone for your future, but it’s hard to think about it that way when you’ve got so much else going on. That is why the “share” button was created.
The “share” button is a new revolutionary social networking tool that will help you connect with others that are just trying to find their way through the process of choosing a college and figuring out what they really want to do. We’ve all used Facebook’s “like” button at some point to show our friend’s that we like their page and a lot of people keep a like button on their own blog. It is encouraging every time you see the counter go up and it makes you want to do even more. The “share” button has taken that simple, yet amazing, strategy and pushed it to the next level.
Making the Connection
All it takes is a visit to their website. Once there, you just need to create a profile that focuses on the kind of college that you want to go to. Do you prefer technical or state schools? Would you like to stay in your own state, go national or be really ambitious and go with an international college? What kind of classes do you like? What are your extracurricular activities? And others along that line. You don’t have to fill out everything, but the more you do the easier it will be to make connections.
Once you’ve filled out everything you feel comfortable with just tell us which of your social pages, profiles and blogs you want the “share” button to be placed on. If someone clicks your button, they will be able to see your profile and can add you to their share list. They can also send you messages and links connected with school info that you might find interesting. When you get back on your site, you will be able to see how many people have shared with you. By clicking on your own button you can see their profiles and decide whether you want to add them to your share list to get and give future information or not.
The “share” button is also a great way for colleges to actually get in touch with you. When you finally send in your applications, many schools will check out your online presence. If you use the “share” button, they can send you further information on their programs and scholarships to help you decide which college is the best choice for you.
The “share” button gives you all the functionality of a normal social network, but focuses it on an area that is important for any teenager. With this button you can let people know about your hopes, dreams and fears about college and the future and find a few new friends who can help you get where you want to be.
