This week I cyber sleuthed Regan Luypaert. I didn’t know much about her and I’ve never met her in person, so this gave me a chance to learn more about her and to view her online profile(s). I found that this was an interesting task to do for this week’s blog post, as creeping on people is usually done in private, HAHA!!
The thing is, I found her on several social media sites, but they were all privatized and locked down pretty good so I couldn’t squeeze much info out of her profiles. Her blog is filled with her university coursework and her Twitter also showcases a lot of her knowledge and resources towards education.
