Social Media @ UNI

Resources for Social Media at UNI

Social media sites are centered on user interaction, and include software tools that allow persons to generate works of user-created video, audio, text or multimedia and engage in conversations and exchange of content (examples are blogs, YouTube, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). The use of social media sites is an acceptable way to promote the University of Northern Iowa and encourage interaction between the institution and its constituents.

It's best to look at social media from several angles... posting to the main UNI social media sites and responding to comments, managing departmental social media sites, and responding to external social media sites.
