Social media is not just a set of communication tools; it’s a completely different way of thinking about how we interact with each other. UCM is leading the way by administering the University’s primary accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The accounts connect OHIO with students, faculty, alumni, and friends around the world, promoting the brand and spreading Bobcat pride!
Whether you’re just getting started with social media or well established, UCM is able to offer a number of services to assist your goals, including the Social Media Directory, SM3, and consultations.
The Social Media Directory is linked directly from OHIO's homepage and is an inclusive listing of official accounts from around the University. Need to add a social media account or update an existing one? E-mail Dan Pittman with any edits. The directory is also home to OHIO's official social media guidelines.
SM3 (Social Media Managers Meeting) is a group led by UCM that provides collaborative space for the social media managers at Ohio University. Intended for staff and/or faculty who operate the official social media feeds at the University, SM3 supplies an outlet for support, the sharing of best practices, and crowdsourcing for help when it's needed. The group meets once a semester. To join the group, contact Dan Pittman.
