WVU-ES Social Media Standards

  • All social media accounts must use the department’s administrative e-mail account (ex: ExtensionCommunications@mail.wvu.edu) and should not be set up through a personal e-mail account.
  • Facebook accounts for departments must be set up as “groups” and not “people.” If you’re having trouble determining which type of account is appropriate for your organization, please contact Brittany Dick.
  • Similar principles apply for other social media outlets. For information or guidance for other social media outlets, please contact a member of the WVU Extension Service Web team.

WVU-ES Twitter Standards

Thinking of “tweeting?”

Recommendations for Twitter are still under development. Please check with Brittany Dick regarding Twitter.
