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: 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,
