Department of Computer Science's Social Media Strategy

Posted Mar. 19, 2011

Given the department has various channels for communication, including its official web page, Facebook page, Twitter stream, and even direct email to undergraduate and graduate students, you may be wondering how these different channels are used.

The department's web page -- http://www.cs.kent.edu -- is used for more "official" communications, including announcements of upcoming colloquia or talks, recent presentations by faculty or staff, and so forth.

The department's Facebook page -- http://www.facebook.com/pages/Kent-State-University-Computer-Science-Department-KSU-CS/35301834711-- includes all of those news items, plus some additional news items, as well as more social items, such as congratulating a Doctoral student after a successful defense.

Finally, the department's Twitter stream -- http://twitter.com/KSU_CSDept -- includes all of the info above, along with re-tweets from other sources, as well as more timely, smaller announcements.
