Social Media Resource Group Meeting, Dec. 3, 2013
Questions about the use of photos on TWU social media has come up several times since the last meeting, so I like to discuss that issue with the group. Bring your questions and insights along for that.
Annie Philips-Newton and I have talked about putting together a committee to do some investigative work on what other schools are doing with social media and how we might learn from it. Let's talk about that and get some volunteers for the committee.
And Diann Maurer has kindly offered her Google Apps spreadsheet of TWU-related social media accounts to the group for review and editing. Are your social media accounts on it?
Any other topics you would like to discuss?
TWU Social Media Resource Group Kick-Off Meeting, Aug. 13, 2013
The first meeting of the TWU Social Media Resource Group was held Wednesday, Aug. 13, in ACT 301. Because this was our first meeting, we, Annie Phillips-Newton of TWU Commuter Services, and Scott Bynum of TWU Marketing & Communication, started with a basic overview of social media in general and what to think about if you're still deciding whether or not to take the leap.
We also went over some new policies, guidelines, and best practices documents. If you were unable to attend, check the links below for Annie's Prezi presentation on best practices in social media, and the new and still-in-draft versions of the TWU social media policies. If you have questions or comments about these documents, please contact me, Scott Bynum.

Facebook Group for the TWU Social Media Resource Group
At the end of our meeting, a quick informal survey of the group indicated that most people would like to try a Facebook Group as a way to ask questions and share information about social media between meetings. So here we go: The TWU Social Media Resource Group on Facebook
There were a handful of people in the room who didn't already have a Facebook account, and to participate in this group you'll need a Facebook account. It could be a way for you to test the water a bit before you dive in and try to manage an account for your department.
