The Office of News & Public Affairs is pleased to announce two breakout sessions for BC social media practitioners who are or will be posting to Facebook on behalf of the University. “Facebook for Business 101” and “Advanced Facebook” are one-hour sessions designed to help those starting or maintaining Facebook channels. Which should you attend? Read on.

Facebook for Business 101: Are you new to social media? Just starting a Facebook page for your department, organization or division? This session will provide an overview of social media, explain the differences between personal pages vs. groups vs. brand pages, review University guidelines and provide general strategies of getting your followers to engage. (This session is ideal for users who are thinking about Facebook or recently created a page.) Scheduled: Friday, Oct. 4, 10:30 in Stokes Hall N203 Conference Room. Space is limited, so please email social@bc.edu to reserve a seat.

Advanced Facebook: Do you already have a Facebook page? Have you been at it for at least a year? This session will explain how to interpret insight data and provide examples of the most successful accounts on campus and across the country. Think of this as a strategy session to audit or troubleshoot your Facebook presence.  Scheduled: Thursday, Oct. 17, 10:30 in Stokes Hall N203 Conference Room. Again, space is limited, so please email social@bc.edu to reserve a seat.

Breakout sessions for other social media platforms will be offered later in the semester, but times and dates are TBA. Subscribe to the blog to be emailed notifications.
