It's not all spontaneous and immediate.
Creative Services 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.
W&M at the Moment (and in a Directory)
Social Stream is our social media aggregator of the "official" W&M social media accounts and serves as the directory of all active "official-ish" (campus offices and departments) and "unofficial" (student organizations and personas) accounts.
