Social Media Guidelines

UBC has more than 300 Twitter accounts and 150 Facebook accounts.

Social networking tools are growing in number and they can be exciting channels to share ideas and connect with others who have the same interests. They provide an opportunity to advance our mandate to disseminate knowledge and build effective relations with the community through dialogue and academic freedom. However, they also have the potential to affect professional and organizational reputations.

Before starting a new social media account, either in an official or personal capacity, ensure you review the UBC Social Media Toolkit of resources, training tools and best practice advice. If you are unsure whether a communication is appropriate, please consult with your manager or the LFS communications director and refer to the UBC Social Media Guidelines.
