Social Media @ W&M

It's not all spontaneous and immediate.

The University Web & Design team is ready to share our best recommendations for using social media at William & Mary. SMUG meetings will feature strategy, suggestions, cautions and requirements for those who represent the university on social platforms.

We manage the university's official Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, InstagramPinterest, and Storify accounts as well as W&M Blogs (all of which are governed by our Social Media Comment Policy).

W&M at the Moment (and in a Directory)

Social Stream is our social media aggregator of the top-level W&M social media accounts and serves as the directory of all active W&M-related accounts on campus (including academic departments, programs, centers, administrative offices, libraries, museums, athletic teams, sports clubs, officially recognized student organizations, and alumni groups).

If you run a social media channel for a W&M-related group and don't see it listed in the directory, please let us know.
