EnglishMatters Celebrity Takeover

Does your chapter have an event planned that you would like to showcase and share with the entire Society? It is time to become a celebrity for a day! Chapters may now request to take over one or more of the Society social media accounts to cover chapter activities, such as conferences, fundraising events, holiday activities, and public readings.

*For those who wish to take over Snapchat they will be expected to work with the Central Office in creating an event Geofilter. This article gives a nice overview of what is involved in creating a Geofilter.

Leading up to the takeover the chapter will coordinate with the Central Office to plan and promote the takeover. This may include creating a poster to display during the event that announces/promotes the takeover and encourages attendees to follow Sigma Tau Delta on social media. On the day of the takeover the chapter will be provided with a temporary password to gain access to the desired account(s).

Takeovers should be opened with a welcome post and concluded with a post encouraging followers to request a takeover of their own.
