Social Media and Mobile Apps

Many University and campus units have social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, blogspot, and Flickr. Some campuses have guidelines and recommendations that are also included here.

A UA social media best practices document document is now available as a PDF (April 2015).

UA staff who manage or contribute to social media accounts on behalf of UA offices are encouraged to join a UA-only social media list.  Subscribe || Unsubscribe
