Stanislaus State maintains a social media presence in order to tell our story to multiple audiences, to build relationships and to encourage discussions in a central forum. We are eager to hear from our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends on the following official University social media sites:
Facebook is the most popular social networking website in the world. Members can create profiles and connect with friends; share updates, contents and activities; create pages for businesses, nonprofits or causes; and follow updates from their favorite places. A Facebook page can be a great way to promote activities in your department or program; showcase accomplishments or events; engage with students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community; and create a forum for conversation or discussion. Please note that it is against Facebook policy to create a personal profile for a business/institution.
Twitter is a very popular social networking and micro-blogging platform where users share concise posts — 140 characters or less, called tweets — in a largely public forum. The pace of information is more rapid than other social media, making it a good resource to share timely information.
Instagram is a highly visual, mobile social platform that focuses on sharing photos or videos. Instagram also can be linked to other social media sites, such as Facebook or Twitter. The fastest-growing major social network in 2014, Instagram provides opportunities to connect with current or prospective students as well as the community.
Our LinkedIn University Page provides a unique opportunity to reach alumni and professionals. LinkedIn groups and company pages also are excellent forums to connect with alumni and professionals related to the field of your department or program and foster discussions and relationships.
