Apologies in advance for crosspostings.

University Relations is continuing to work on social networking  
guidelines that we hope will be helpful for units that want to make  
official profiles or pages for their unit or program.

Some of the things we plan to address include if and when to use  
social networking, how or if you should monitor comments, how to  
appropriately brand your social networking profile, how to combine  
social networking with your current promotional efforts, and balancing  
the time it takes to manage a social networking page or site.

We'd like to know a few things from University communicators to help  
us shape these guidelines. Please take a few minutes to respond to  
this short survey: 
sid=56929&lang=um. The survey will be open until Monday, March 15.

And if you haven't visited the guidelines that are currently  
available, take a look:

Thank you,
