Social Media Best Practices

Be it Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Foursquare or Flickr, the social media landscape is ever changing.

Digital and Social Media Communications encourages units to explore social media and to decide if it is right for them. Before you get started, we ask that you do the following:

  • Review our guidelines and best practices, which are in keeping with How We Tell Our Story: Communication Standards for the University of Oregon.
  • Complete our social media worksheet, which will provide you with a strong foundation to build and maintain your presence or, equally important, help you decide NOT to develop a departmental presence.
  • Assign a faculty or staff member from your division, unit or office to oversee all accounts. A UO faculty or staff member must have administrative privileges to all accounts and is responsible for controlling permissions and security to the accounts.
