Social media is playing a bigger role in College Communications and works hand-in-hand with your department site. The Office of Communications has added Daniella Nordin as Online Community Manager to oversee Skidmore's social networking community for current students, prospective students, and graduates. Skidmore works to provide new content on a regular basis that engages these students and uses social media as a tool for real-time management, which means being involved at the moment things are happening. By providing a social networking community, Skidmore gives students the ability to connect with other students, share experiences, learn from each other, and ask the school and/or other students or graduates questions. Using social media has many other benefits including:
- Ability to share or view photos/videos of activities on campus
- Spread on campus events that they know of or are involved in
- Raise questions and concerns
- Provide answers to other students, prospective students, and graduates
- Share success stories
- Start discussion topics and gain insight from fellow students, prospective students, and graduates
Skidmore also uses social media as a promotional tool. Graduates and their achievements are highlighted on the College's Facebook pages or broadcasted via Twitter.
For assistance in setting up a Facebook page, Twitter feed, LinkedIn group, YouTube channel, or other social networking site for your department, or simply for more information, please contact Daniella at x5616 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
