SMC 10/14 Preview

The first meeting of the Social Media Council this semester is upon us! Tomorrow we’ll meet in McGuinn 334 at 2 p.m. with a packed agenda.

Screen Shot 2015-10-08 at 2.47.14 PMOur guest speaker this month is Tom O’Keefe, A.K.A. Boston Tweet, who has established himself as one of the top social influencers on Twitter in Boston. Tom has a Twitter audience north of 160,000 and is the founder of Flutter, an online platform for local charities to create interesting local experiences. A 1995 alumnus of BC, Tom has agreed to share with us his story, tips on Twitter and details on how to successfully build and sustain a brand on social media.

Next up, Athletics Associate Director of Communications Lizz Summers will give us an update on her department’s new website, and preferences with hashtag usage when posting about BC Athletics teams or news. Cheryse Ong, Social Media Manager for BC Alumni, will also provide an update on upcoming campaigns and social media efforts from her department.

We’ll leave some time to talk about Periscope, as more departments have become interested in or already started utilizing this live streaming service connected with Twitter. Curious about Periscope? Read this blog post from the team that developed it. And here’s a look at how other schools have utilized Periscope to date.

If you haven’t already, please RSVP to social@bc.edu so we have enough chairs! See you tomorrow.
