Saving this link for use on either the college facebook or twitter page
http://chronicle.com/section/About-the-Chronicle/83

I'm kind of enjoying doing the college's Facebook and Twitter pages. Well, the FAcebook page. I only have 49 followers, but at least ten of them regularly interact with the page and over half have interacted at least once or told me in person they appreciate it. I am hoping to do a push to increase the followers this year once we get past the Duck Race. :D I bought a set of notecards from our CBA as a prize and when we double our numbers I will draw a winner. I might need a cooler prize, darn it, but it came out of my own pocket and it benefits a charity I admire. What worries me is that I don't want non-college employees. So I'm not sure what to do about that. I have seen at least twenty other college employees/retirees on Facebook, so they are my target for the contest. Wish me luck!

I'm not as excited by the Twitter page - somehow it's much harder to post. The idea that it's only 120 characters makes me think what I write needs to be VERY IMPORTANT. And I have seven followers, only ONE of which is a college AFC member, so I'm writing to an audience of one. I've been reading suggestions on Twitter - like at least half of one's posts should promote OTHER people or be passing on OTHER information, so I'm working on trying to find none college AFC stuff, hence the Chronicle link. Honestly, if we didn't have to have a Twitter account I would ask to scrap it. But AFC is really pushing social media now and especially pushing Twitter. It looks like the other colleges and commissions are just as bad at it as I am, though, so at least we are all starting from scratch! Maybe I'll be able to get it off the ground.

Regardless - I won an Unsung Hero award at this year's convention for my work with the college's social media - woot!

And I love my personal Tumblr account. Wish the college would use that! But I can't see them on it. :D
I do predict we could start a YouTube channel...

I'm amazed that you do all that. Kudos to you for taking over all those extra tasks! =o) Constantly having to come up with updates and stuff like that is harder than it sounds!
