As we kick off 2015, a quick look back on 2014. When YouTube Head of Culture and Trends Kevin Allocca ’06 spoke to the SMC last semester, he mentioned one of his favorite segments of the year: YouTube Rewind, an annual review of global video trends. Here’s that site, which also includes the most-viewed ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos, a global social trend inspired by Pete Frates ’07.
Another 2014 recap, ICYMI: Boston College’s social media was featured in Boston Magazine‘s Follow Friday column.
The Q&A with social media administrators from the Office of News & Public Affairs touches upon many highlights from of the past year, including Shake if Off, the #IceBucketChallenge, WeAreBC Snapchat, the BC Social Fellows and the community’s curious love-hate relationship with the #Gassongram.
What were some of your favorite #BCSocial moments of 2014?
For those planning the semester ahead, be sure to mark your calendars for upcoming Social Media Council dates: Feb. 4, Mar. 25 and May 6.
