Social Media Management
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." —Margaret Mead
Change is ever present, in both the world and our Society. Where email and bulletins once were the most common means of communication and membership recruitment within chapters and across campuses, the times have changed and social media has firmly moved to the forefront of communication. From chapter Facebook groups to live tweeting on university Twitter accounts to Instagramming and Snaptchatting photos and videos of chapter activities, Sigma Tau Delta fully supports its chapters’ embracing social media to spread the good word that English matters.
To guide you in your endeavors Sigma Tau Delta has compiled for you a brief list of social media management resources.
