How FSU is Engaged in Social Media

Please scroll down to read a brief description on some of the most popular platforms. We also share the pages managed at the institutional level.

Facebook: Facebook is a social network service and web site that allows users to build an online community with other users, brands and organizations. Users build value with wall posts, status updates, messages and multi-media posts. The more interaction your page has with others, the more individuals will be enticed to visit and "like" your page. The ultimate goal is to draw visitors to your Facebook page and maintain positive, consistent conversation - strengthening FSU program loyalty.

Other approved Departmental/Units/Student Clubs and Organizations Facebook Pages:

Twitter: Through short, 140-character posts, Twitter provides users with the resource to create a community. Create your own online community followers, sending frequent tweets, retweets, links and direct messages.

Other approved Departmental/Units/Student Clubs and Organizations Twitter Pages:

Instagram:  Is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them either publicly or privately on the app, as well as through a variety of other social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flickr.

LinkedIn: LinkedIn is a social media platform for business-oriented social networking, it is mainly used for professional networking.  The basic functionality of LinkedIn allows users (workers and employers) to create profiles and "connections" to each other in an online social network which may represent real-world professional relationships.

Pinterest. Pinterest is a social media platform for visual storytelling. It's designed to be a virtual pinboard where visitors can organize and share inspirational ideas and images found online.

Blogs: When longer posts such as event recaps, organization updates, or general information are needed, blogs are a great tool. Blog posts can incorporate multi-media and offer more diverse options than Facebook and Twitter. FSU units are encouraged to host their blog(s) on WordPress. However, Tumblr and blogs also allow for easy integration into other social media platforms.

Tumblr:  lets you effortlessly share anything. Post text, photos, quotes, links, music, and videos from your browser, phone, desktop, email or wherever you happen to be. You can customize everything, from colors to your theme's HTML.

YouTube: YouTube is a video-sharing service that allows users to upload, share and view videos. On YouTube, you can create individual channel pages to represent your specific unit or group.
