U of M making use of online social networks
The University of Memphis wants you to know there is a whole new world out there. It resides in cyberspace, but it is playing an increasingly important role at the U of M.

The U of M is turning more and more to online social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Youtube to disperse news about the University, to connect with alumni and to serve as a recruiting tool. All three can be reached by going to the U of M’s homepage; scroll down to the bottom of the page to find links to all three.

The University’s official Facebook fan-page debuted 10 months ago and already has about 12,000 fans. Recent posts include information about Tiger batboy Stan Bronson Jr.’s 82nd birthday, U of M research that targets autism and a link to “the University of Memphis Minute,” a weekly video detailing important happenings.

“We were and are looking at other ways to connect with our audiences, particularly prospective students, but also alumni,” said Linda Bonnin, associate vice president of Communications, Public Relations and Marketing.
