Social media for organizations, such as an academic department or a degree program, consist of a range of web-based applications that allow anyone to disseminate information to online communities. The principle reasons for creating a social media presence for an academic department or program include: (1) Create an online social community for current students; (2) Create an extended community of alumni and friends; and (3) Create an awareness of the department or program among potential students.
