How Schools Can Use Facebook to Build an Online Community (Repost)

Great article by David Hartstein, “How Schools Can Use Facebook to Build an Online Community“on some of the thought(s) that go into setting up a Facebook page for schools. Especially timely for me given the project I’m working on with New Hope Christian School.

While I highly recommend the quick read, the topics of the article:

  • Protecting Students
  • Sharing School News and the exciting things that are happening on campus and with your student body
  • Sharing upcoming events
  • Makings School Announcements
  • Use Media to Showcase School Culture
    • Share Photos
    • Share Video
  • Use as a Recruitment Tool
  • Using Facebook to attract staff

    • Discussions
    • Polls
    • Facebook Questions
  • Settings and Privacy
    • Posting ability
