Social media is really not about technology. It has everything to do with communication, specifically a new communications approach and a new media mix.
Gettysburg College acknowledges the important role and opportunity that social networking plays in enhancing the academic reputation and brand of Gettysburg. Social media should be used to engage our audiences in a conversation and relationship with Gettysburg College. This new form of communication is about personality and voice.
Web Communications manages social media for Gettysburg College. The College officially maintains the following social media sites:
- Facebook Fan Page
- Gettysburg College Professional Network on LinkedIn Group
- Twitter account - @gettysburg
- Flickr photo galleries
- YouTube videos
- Instagram photos
If you are interested in using these social media tools to enhance your website or program please contact Paul Fairbanks.
