Facebook is the largest social media platform in the world with more than 2.32 billion monthly active users. Everyone, from high school students to grandparents, is on the platform for keeping up with old friends, sharing photos, news, and following their favorite brands. At UNH, we update prospective students, current students, alumni, faculty, and staff on everything happening in Wildcat Country. From gorgeous campus photos to student spotlight videos, campus news and more, our University of New Hampshire Facebook page keeps everyone in the loop.
Facebook has many ways to stay connected. Anyone who has an account has a personal profile where they can add their friends and keep associated individuals updated on events in their lives. Facebook Groups, which can be private, are available to connect with like-minded individuals and stay up-to-date on news and create discussions. Each of our alumni networks has a Facebook Group to share updates on alumni events and engage in conversation. Facebook Pages, which are always public, are much more professional and represent a brand, college, or a department within a college. With Facebook Pages, there are more options of content to post, in addition to analytics and more behind the scenes control.
Facebook offers a great opportunity to showcase your UNH department or program and build recognition, while encouraging fans to participate. For many UNH organizations and departments, a Facebook page is the flagship of their social media presence.
