    You need to provide evidence of your professional online engagements on social media. Which social media channels you use are up to you.

    This evidence should be collated into a Storify document which should be openly accessible.

  4. Task 4 Create another visual representation of your online network

    You should by now have developed your online network from when you created your visual representation in task one.
