Facebook and Twitter and Youtube, oh my!
Many people use social media to interact nowadays, with over 750 million active users (as of September 2011) on Facebook alone. UAF and SOM are active on both Facebook and Twitter and student organizations are starting to join in on the fun. Keep in mind that your social media sites should be just as professional as your website. Social media is generally more informal, but don't post anything you wouldn't want your mother - or SOM Dean Herrmann - to read.
A quick tip for Facebook:
- Create a group if it's just for members of your student organization
- Create a page if it's for everyone
- Make sure more than one person, preferably your faculty advisor, is an admin
More social media resources:
Websites are a great way to distribute information to current and potential members. The standard for UAF student organizations is to create a website through Google sites using your alaska.edu account.
Websites need to be regularly updated. If your website hasn't been updated in over a year and has spelling and punctuation errors, your student organization is not going to make a good impression. SOM reserves the right to remove links to your website from our site if a student organization site is not being well-maintained.
A few resources that could come in handy:
Federal law requires the following statement to appear on all UAF print, multimedia and web publications designed for external, off-campus distribution.
UAF is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and educational institution.
UAF is an AA/EO employer and educational institution
