Social Network pinned on noticeboard

In the past ten years, social networking sites have gained in popularity, but many users have yet to learn the efficacy behind strategic social networking. Surprisingly, few academics and educational administrators use free social networking sites despite that the majority of students have daily interaction in online social communities. This presentation aims to showcase various social networking technologies and how they may be applied in an academic setting. The Center for Southeast Asian Studies social networking strategies on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest and Vimeo will be used as resources for our discussion and we will explore examples of how to create social networking strategies to maximize engagement.
