From TV to Your Social Media Feed: An Interview with Jenny Johnson

I will say that while social media is going to be ever present in our lives forever, one really important thing to keep in mind [which] is much more important than what you post, is the relationships that you develop with other people and other businesses and other entities.

This was one of the most important pieces of advice Jenny Johnson has to offer regarding her career in social media.

Vine, the once popular video-sharing platform, has been out of the online discussion for a while (and we miss it!). After Twitter discontinued Vine, many popular Viners had to switch to other social media platforms. We got in touch with Bostonian comedian, now relocated to Los Angeles, and former Viner Ry Doon to get his thoughts on current social media trends.

Ry jumpstarted his career on Vine and attracted huge following with his funny skits and impressions. After Vine was shut down, Ry had to switch to other platforms and relocate himself on social media. Once being one of the most recognized Viners, with nearly 4 million followers, Ry is now focusing on his career as a comedian and growing his presence on social media.
