Social Media @ W&M

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.

We manage the College'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 "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.

If you run a social media channel for a W&M department, office, or student organization and don't see it listed in the directory, please let us know.
