     Who Should We Target

Less likely to engage prospects directly through
social media

Encourage or guide your current constituents to
advocate on your behalf instead

Focus efforts on most engaged constituents because
they are the most likely to advocate on your behalf
and the least likely to criticize you

Alumni, Fans, Current Students, Faculty&Staff

How Often to Post

  2-5 times per day maximum

               Tactics

What to Post

  Character counts matter. Even on Facebook
  you should keep it very, very short 80 - 140
  characters is ideal

  Photos do best, then video, questions and
  polls next

  Links. Use shortened links on Twitter and full
  links on Facebook. Facebook ranks posts
  higher when full links are used
            Tactics

When to Post

  Timing matters almost as much as content

  10-4 EST are highest traffic times; 8:30-10
  PM EST is parent time (more Alumni online)

  Thursdays and Fridays are highest traffic
  days

  Scheduling posts is cool, but posting
  manually on Facebook causes your quality
  to improve
