Best Practices 

  • Post at least 2-3 times per week. If you are not planning or able to post valuable content a minimum of 2 times per week, consider combining your efforts within a larger department or program or adding a "discussion" to an existing Facebook page.
  • Vary your messaging. Active participation (questions, contests, etc.) and information (news and how-to). Invite user interaction by posting photos, videos, and links. Be sure to monitor for those using your site to market their wares or promote an agenda.
  • Enrich your page. Add interest to by creating photo albums, events, videos, discussions, etc. Update occasionally.
  • Use a professional profile image. Unless you are a group that works primarily with students, stay a way from "cute" pictures/images. Always consider your audience. It is best to put forth a professional image for the University. University Relations is available to suggest images or provide a customized image that will shrink appropriately.
  • Include a Facebook icon within your unit's web page. Place the icon in a prominent location to avoid unnecessary scrolling.
  • Add applicable social media links to your lower-left contact element (Flickr, YouTube, Facebook, etc.). This is in addition to the more prominent icon. See University Marketing and Communications for an example.
  • Include photos for items you promote within your University webpage. When you insert a link on your Facebook page, the photo will appear on your wall and in others' news feeds, adding increased visual appeal.
  • Stay on topic. Your posts/comments should be related to actual UW-Superior activities, people, successes, etc. Refrain from relating personal opinions and causes on your University Facebook page. If you have any questions about this, contact University Marketing and Communications.
  • "Friend/Like" similar pages on Facebook. It's a great way to keep abreast of what others are doing, and to find relevant information to share with UW-Superior social media followers.
  • Be responsive. Respond in a timely manner to user's questions, relevant news and trends, and changes to Facebook functionality.
