In less than two weeks, I’ll be presenting about social media at the CASE District VI Conference in St. Louis. What I’d like to do as part of that presentation is something I try to do in most presentations: crowdsource some advice from other higher ed communications and marketing pros and share samples of the collective wisdom. Because none of us is as smart as all of us, right?
So I’m asking you readers to share your advice, tips or cautions about using social media in higher education. I’m specifically interested in your thoughts about Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and Google Wave.
Please take a minute to share in the comments – or, if you prefer, via Twitter (@andrewcareaga):
- your tips for using social media as a communications and/or marketing tool in higher education
- your advice for getting started in social media (for those unfamiliar)
- your thoughts on the future of social media – i.e., what trends do you see for the coming year?
- any words of wisdom or caution regarding social media
Any information I use from you will be properly attributed to you.
Thanks for your help!
