The Office of News & Public Affairs recently partnered with the Office of Marketing Communications to give the University YouTube page a facelift. Our offices will now work together to maximize BC video offerings on social media.
Members of the Social Media Council are now featured on the right navigation of the page under “Featured Channels.” Because there are more active channels than slots, we have enabled an “intelligent shuffle” function – if you don’t see your channel in the column, try refreshing the page. To double-check that your group, school or department is included, look at the bottom of the “About” page to see all the BC featured channels. If you are missing, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Part of the increased functionality of the site will include “playlists” where we will profile different subjects across campus. Here are the playlists that are currently live. Upcoming playlists will include faculty experts, student arts and research. If you have an idea for a playlist, or think you have a video that should be included in what already exists, email us.
As stated at the last SMC meeting, this is shaping up to be the year of the video, with visual social media platforms exploding. With that in mind, we hope to use this space as a strategic way to promote all the great video content that is being produced across campus. We have subscribed to each of your channels. We ask all SMC members to subscribe to the University channel.
What do you think of the new design and functionality of the BC YouTube page?
