Are you aware of how many Binghamton University departments use social media to alert students of events and happenings? On this page you can find a comprehensive list detailing by department and preferred application. I liked a few of these pages on Facebook, specifically the Continuing Education & Outreach page and the Binghamton University Page. The Binghamton University page offers a great daily photo and sometimes posts contests and the CEO page recently ran a great tip about Branch Out, a Facebook app that lets you network efficiently. After perusing the list, I added the Harpur School of Arts & Sciences page to my Facebook network as well.
Personally, I have a Facebook profile but I use it primarily communicating with long distance friends and keeping up with specific business or university pages. When it comes to business, I find social media to be a great tool and have used Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and LinkedIn in order to advertise events or recruit employees. Of course, I currently blog for Binghamton University’s Department of Continuing Education & Outreach. I also review local performances for the Broome Arts Mirror.
It seems clear that social media is here to stay, although with the addition of Google+ to the mix finding out each person’s preferred network as difficult as trying to maintain a functional identity on each of the various sites.
How do you use social media as a non-traditional student? Have you liked any Binghamton University Facebook Pages? Which pages do you like or recommend? Let me know in the comments below.
