    Great podcast Manu!

    You have a great steady voice, and it was very easy for listeners, like myself, to keep up and follow along. I liked that you gave a brief summary of your pervious podcast for those who did not get a chance to listen to it. I think this topic is relatable to everyone – we are all guilty of touching up photos and fixing our posts/tweets before we put it up on social media. And its true, what we on Facebook is only a snippet of a person’s life.

    One suggestion I would make, is maybe to add music to beginning and end of your podcast to immediately gather the attention of your listeners.

    Overall, awesome episode! Good luck!

    I really like the pictures that you’ve included. I found that while i was listening I was looking at the images provided and that helped me connect to what you were saying. The fact that you have a very good podcast voice caught my attention. All of your pauses are the right length and give me enough time to process what you have said before you say something else. I think that this really helps me appreciate and consider what you are saying.

    Hi Manu,

    I thought you were very clear in your podcast. I think a lot of what you’re saying is true, and a little bit depressing. I think the photos that you added comparing the Facebook you to the real you are very effective. I think a particularly good point you make is the one about making sure your Facebook is clean, so that if an employer looks at your site, there is not anything that will prevent you from getting hired on there. The link to the ted talk was also quite interesting. Good job!

    Thank you both for the feedback, silly me, I actually uploaded the wrong file (the one that did not contain the music). That’s now been straightened out.
