Best Practices

Social media helps us connect with audiences across the globe. Dickinson encourages community members to harness this powerful tool in effective, community-building ways.

While social media platforms are a great news distribution tool, they're also an engaging way to start a conversation. In addition to sharing information about your department or club events, consider asking your followers a question or inviting them to comment.

The basic rules of good communication still apply. Remember that anything posted is instantly and permanently public. Casual conversation is great, but it should be civil. Verify facts and dates prior to posting so that you're providing accurate information, but if erroneous information is publicized, post a correction. Your followers and fans will appreciate it!
